Damir Skomina appointed for UEFA Champions League final in Madrid

The UEFA Referees Committee has announced that Damir Skomina will referee the 2019 UEFA Champions League final between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool. The match will be played at the Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid on Saturday 1 June at 21:00CET.

The 42-year-old Slovenian, an international referee since 2002, will have the opportunity to complete a prestigious European club competition "treble", as he has already officiated at the UEFA Europa League final between Ajax and Manchester United in 2017, as well as the UEFA Super Cup between Chelsea and Atlético in 2012. He also acted as fourth official at the 2013 UEFA Champions League final between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern München.

Skomina has taken charge of four UEFA Champions League matches this season, as well as two UEFA Europa League games.

At the final in Madrid, Skomina will be assisted by his countrymen Jure Praprotnik and Robert Vukan. The fourth official will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz from Spain. The video assistant referee role has been assigned to Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands, who will be supported by Pol van Boekel, Felix Zwayer, and Mark Borsch.

    6. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Great can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:

After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son.

  4. It is for sure something very deserved for the Slovenian after so many years. I'm happy also for people who "suffered" with him, indeed in past, especially two years ago, there was absolutely no explanation for the fact that he didn't get a deserved CL final. The occasion must be used, you don't know what is about to happen on next year.
    Good luck to Skomina, and I think Slovenia even as entire nation can be proud.

    Maybe you are wondering, is Damir Skomina in good form ahead of his CL Final?

    Below you can find extended highlights of the Al Ittifaq - Al Hilal game, crucial game in the penultimate round for the destination of the Saudi Pro League championship, handled by Damir Skomina, Jure Prapronik and Robert Vukan on the Saturday just past.

      Does it not difficult to make such clips for you?
      Perfect work!
      i watched this clip now, it was not easy game! i would like to say, it was too crucial

      Delete
    2. Thanks, it is nice to know that users like these 'refereeing highlights'.

      I use a program called Avidemux in order to cut the clips from each match and join them together.

      I agree, definitely a tricky match for the Skomina. I think that he refereed well. A comment I saw from one of our (in)famous contributors who implied that matches in Premier League, Bundesliga et al. are much more challenging than those in KSA; I couldn't disagree more, I saw so many very tough matches for the referees there. Such way of playing football is so much different to Europe, especially in the West.

      I think you make an interesting point, I tend to agree, it was better to assign him a 'dead rubber' match this time. Also, we can remember that if Al Ittifaq managed to take the lead, it could have been even harder.

      To close, surely now he won't be appointed in the final round of matches in Saudi Pro League which take place on Thursday coming, at 21:30 CET in the evening (at least in a 'relevant' match).

      Delete
    3. Because being a regular in the Saudi league totally prepares you for the best UEFA has to offer. I guess it's something top players should take into consideration. Go to Saudi Arabia instead of the top leagues in Europe. Referee's are doing it.

      Delete
  9. Justice is DONE !!! Finally he got what he really deserve for his outstanding carrier. Congratulation for him. I think that the appointments done by Rosetti are extremely fair.
    In my opinion, among very top level referees, the ones who didn't get Cl final is Anders Frisk. In the 2000th he has been one of the best referees like Meier, Merk and Collina but unfortunately and unfairly he never got CL final.

They join Lutz Fröhlich (Sporting Director/General Manager/"big boss") and Jochen Drees (VAR Project Manager).

    3. Marciniak could be an option too if he recover and do an amazing season.

    4. Maybe del Cerro Grande already - but only if he is having a clearly better season than Mateu.
      And Makkelie has to be mentioned, I think.
      But most of the names rather for EL than for CL final.
      For CL final, only Mateu, Turpin, Orsato and Marciniak are candidates IMO.

    6. Turpin will already be 38 years of age during the next UCL final. 😉

      Delete
    7. Turpin, Marciniak and Mateu are right now the only candidate for next CL final. Or may be Collum

  21. Hello, everybody) what`s your prediction for uefa nations league referees?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good question:
      probably the big names used in Sf and final matches are out: Brych, Cakir, Kuipers, Skomina, Rocchi, Makkelie
      Different case IMO for Mateu and Turpin, who are ready for a quite important final match.
      Collum and Marciniak could be an option too; what about Oliver and Taylor ? Too much sacrified by the in-experience on VAR.
      So I would say: SF: Mateu and Collum Final Hategan
      Kassai, Marciniak as VAR; Undiano and Taylor as IV

      Delete
    2. The main question, is referee committee going to use final/semifinal referees in Nations League?

      Delete
    3. And the other main question is, whether (like in CL KO stage) only referees with VAR experience will be used.
      I could imagine e.g. Hategan for the 3rd place, but not for the other matches.
      Furthermore we should exclude all referees, whose countries are participating and all referees, who are at the U20WC or Women WC.
      So the shortlist would be:
      Aytekin, Brych, Cakir, Karasev, Marciniak, Mateu, Orsato, Rocchi, Skomina, Undiano

      Aytekin, Karasev and Undiano seem unlikely (except for 3rd place maybe) after the recent appointments.
      Furthermore Rocchi and Skomina might not be used after their finals - however not impossible.

      This would leave Brych, Cakir, Mateu, Marciniak and Orsato as candidates for SF and final.
      My prediction for the final would be Cakir.

  22. A question for our readers from Greece, who will handle the first leg of the Cretan relegation playoff between OFI Crete - Platanias this afternoon at 17:00 CET?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The match will be played on a later date. The reason is that Pas Giannina made a complaint to HFF asking that only 2 teams are relegated from Greek SL. If HFF accepts the complaint, then Levadiakos will participate on the relegation Play OFF instead of OFI.

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the update. Considering that neither side (HFF and SuperLeague) wanted this playoff, one can wonder whether the fourteen place for next season will be fought in the courtroom rather than on the pitch.

      Do you know if Pereira plans to appoint local or foreign referees for the playoff?

      Delete
    3. The Greek Sports Minister passed the Law on Monday which brings 3 national leagues starting from next season. SL 1, SL 2 and Football League. It is said the HFF will decide on the teams on each league and there is scenario that SL 2 will have 14 teams instead of 12.

      But this play-off is bound to happen. Because the Law states that the next SL 1 will only have 14 teams.

      As for the appointment of the referee, I believe that it will be a Greek one. Most likely a FIFA one.

      Delete
  23. Well, first of all, congratulations to Skomina. The appointment for a UCL final is deserved.

    This said, I have to say I'm "sad". As I said in another post, it has been 14 years (to be 15) without a spanish referee in a UCL final. It is the country of the "big ones" (actually, the biggest one in UEFA coefficient rank for teams) with the longest lapse without a final. Of course, it is partly due to the successful performance of spanish teams in the last years, but also a consequence of bad management by UEFA. 4th official appointment is very far away from being good enough. I guess it is a "gesture" by UEFA, but… not the correct one.

    The thing now is: will they appoint a spanish referee for UEFA Supercup? If so, what if next season there is not a spanish team in UCL? Two appointments in a season? That has not happened in this century.

    1. If I could see a French referee in any European final..., It's been such a long time.

      Delete
    2. @Nathan Fully agree ! :D

      Delete
    3. Yes, France is another country that has not seen a referee in a final for a very long time. However, that has been due to a lack of developed referees in the Elite group in the recent years, until Turpin, rather than due to the presence of French teams in the final. That means that, when Turpin is ready, he can get it any year (almost, only PSG could prevent that and they have not achieved it so far in the past years).

      On the other hand, Spain has consistently had three referees (even four at times) at the same time in the Elite group in the last decade. Some were lower level (Fernández Borbalán, Gil Manzano for now or even Undiano), others got/have got to the top tier (Velasco, Mateu) or are in the process (del Cerro), so they had options.

    Replies
    1. Well, I don't really agree with you. Yes, there are very promising referees coming (Sánchez Martínez and Martínez Munuera, IMO), but they will face the same problem regarding Spanish teams. However, they are both in 2nd group yet. IMO, Martínez Munuera is likely to be promoted soon.

      In the Elite group, Mateu and del Cerro only have a few seasons ahead of them. It might have been their first and last chance. I don't see the potential in Gil Manzano to be a top tier Elite referee. Too prone to loose control.

  35. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. Todd a spellcaster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.

  40. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Great can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he did a spell for me. Two days later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Great . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you. This is his E-mail:

  43. My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/
