The UEFA Referees Committee has announced that Daniele Orsato will be refereeing between Paris Saint-Germain and FC Bayern München for the 2020 UEFA Champions League final. The match will be played on Sunday 23 August at 21:00 CET at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, Lisbon.

The 44-year-old Italian, who has been an international referee since 2010, will take charge of his first major UEFA final, having been entrusted with officiating at eight matches this season in the UEFA Champions League, including the 16th leg round against Manchester City in February for Real Madrid.

Orsato has played a quarter-final match at the latest UEFA Europa League final tournament in Germany, while last season he was the fourth official between Chelsea and Arsenal for the UEFA Europa League final.

The countrymen Lorenzo Manganelli and Alessandro Giallatini will support Orsato in the final in Lisbon. Ovidiu Haegan from Romania will be the fourth official.

Massimiliano Irrati has been assigned the role of video assistant referee (VAR), and he will be assisted by fellow Italian Marco Guida. The VAR line-up is completed by the Spaniards Roberto Diaz Pérez del Palomar and Alejandro Hernández Hernández.
