Although Pep clearly sees Gabriel de Jesus as the key man up top, I’m still seeing Aguero in the striker role flanked on the left by Sane and on the right by Mahrez. https://t.co/S3yT6WLAyr

The 33-year-old self-confessed Newcastle United fan received his FIFA badge in 2012 – six years later he was promoted to the UEFA Elite Group of Referees. In other words, the Geordie, if approached by the world governing bodies is qualified to officiate international, Europa and Champions League ties.
As you will see, dozens of TV channels will be broadcasting the game, live (check out the listings) including official streams via the web. https://t.co/RW68wXResf
