The two Spanish teams have already confirmed their places in the knock-out phase of the Champions League. The referees should have an easy time of it.

Karasev, 37, has already officiated the Catalan side twice. The first of these was when Barça thrashed Celtic (6-1) which saw Neymar score a hat-trick in the final group game of the Champions League in the 2013-14 campaign. The second occasion also resulted in a win for the blaugrana, this time beating Arsenal (3-1) in the last 16 of the competition last season.

A dead rubber in Munich

Turpin will be in charge of keeping the game between Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid ticking along although both teams are likely to rest some of their key players at the Allianz Arena. The Spanish side have already secured top spot and Ancelotti's troops will follow through to the knock-out phase in second place. They kick off on Tuesday at 20.45 (CET).
