Martin Atkinson has been selected to take charge of the Champions League semi-final first leg between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid at the Bernabéu on May 2, Uefa confirmed on Sunday.

Atkinson, 46, has officiated four games featuring Real Madrid in Europe’s elite club competition previously with Madrid winning two and losing two.

Lyon let-down

Atkinson first whistled a Real Madrid game in September 2009, when the visitors racked up a 2-5 win in Zurich. In the same season Atkinson was the man in the middle when Lyon beat Madrid 1-0 at the Stade de Gerland en route to knocking Manuel Pellegrini’s side out of the competition.

In 2014-15 Atkinson was in charge when Real beat Schalke 0-2 in the last 16 in Gelsenkirchen and his last game featuring the reigning champions was the 2-1 defeat against Juventus in Turin in the 2014-15 semi-finals as the Serie A giants reached the final at Real’s expense.

Atlético

Atkinson has refereed Atlético in the competition on three occasions, with one win and two draws for the Colchoneros. Most recently he took charge of Atleti’s 0-1 win over PSV in Eindhoven in this season’s group stage and he also oversaw the 1-1 draw with Zenit St Petersburg at the same stage in 2013-14. In 2008-09 he officiated as Atlético and Porto played out a 2-2 draw in the last 16.
