Referee Damir Skomina

The last time the 42-year-old FIFA listed official took charge of a City game was on the 4th May 2016 when Real Madrid beat us 1-0 at the Bernabeu (Fernando own goal). That unfortunate incident eliminated us from that years UCL competition.

On that night Nico, Fernando, and KDB received cautions.

During the same seasons Champions League group stage Damir kept his cards in his pocket when he took charge of our home Juventus defeat.

Tuesday night’s game will be his first UCL tie of the season.
