Michael Oliver will be the referee of the opening leg of the match between Bayern Munich and PSG.
The English Premier League is usually has the worst refereeing staff among the top five leagues.. Normally, they are limited to their small island over the channel. But during the Champions League, a team like Bayern Munich may have to cope with their stupidity since they have been assigned to officiate a critical game between European powerhouse clubs.
Regrettably, it’s happening AGAIN. UEFA has confirmed that English referee Michael Oliver would officiate the match between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes. The responses reveal the full story – fans are disappointing with this choice.
Michael Oliver, like any other English referee, is a horrible ref. Bayern signed him for the opening leg of the Ro16 against RB Salzburg last season. He’s also overseen our games against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, so the team is well-versed in his shenanigans.
To be honest, the only saving grace here may be that the English loathe the French even more than they dislike the Germans, which may influence their judgments. Otherwise, anticipate PSG gamesmanship and playacting to go completely unchecked, and Bayern players to be penalised for no discernible reason.
In a nutshell, brace yourself for a nightmare.
