This will be the fourth game of the Champions League to be hosted by the Polish referee this season. Naturally, Szymon Marciniak will be the main referee, assisted by Paweł Sokolnicki, Tomasz Listkiewicz and Tomasz Musiał (technical referee) on the sidelines. The VAR system will be operated by Tomasz Kwiatkowski and Krzysztof Jakubik. The team’s work will be assessed by Fritz Stuchlik from Austria delegated by UEFA.
Szymon Marciniak will host a match of the Champions League revelations
FC Sheriff has already surprised many times this season of the Champions League, which he felt firsthand, among others just Real Madrid. Fans and footballers of “Królewski” will surely remember the last direct meeting of both teams in Madrid, in which the Moldovan players came out victorious. Sheriff Tiraspol then beat Real Madrid 2: 1. Sebastien Thill ensured the win in the last minutes with a phenomenal shot from a distance.
Sheriff Tiraspol still has a real chance of advancing to the knockout stage of the Champions League. Currently, the club is 3rd in the table, one point behind Inter Milan and only three points behind leader Real Madrid. Assuming the most optimistic scenario – after the 5th round – the team could even be in the 1st place in the group!

The upcoming clash between Sheriff and Real Madrid will take place on Wednesday, November 24 at 21:00. Live coverage will be available at Sport.pl and the Sport.pl LIVE mobile application.
