The official will be supported by compatriots Mario Diks and Hessel Steegstra with Kevin Blom and Kamphuis Jochem overseeing the area action. The Dutchman was the man in charge at Old Trafford recently where Sevilla ousted Manchester United from the competition.
Makkelie has overseen four champions League games this season wit two involving Sevilla FC: Liverpool-Sevilla (2-2), Celtic-Bayern (1-2), Chelsea-Atlético (1-1) and the aforementioned United-Sevilla (1-2).
