Cüneyt Çakir to take charge of Madrid-Bayern in the Bernabéu

Cüneyt Çakir was the man in the middle for the 2014-15 final between Barça and Juventus and oversaw Real's 3-0 victory in Turin this season.

Uefa have designated Turkish referee Cüneyt Çakir as the match official for the return leg of the Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich in the Bernabéu on Tuesday night.

Çakir, 41, has been handed several high-profile games in recent seasons and has been a Uefa Elite official since 2010.

He took charge of the 2014-15 Champions League final between Barcelona and Juventus, which the Liga side won 3-1, and last season’s Madrid derby semi-final in the Calderón.

In 2017-18 he has refereed Madrid once, the 3-0 victory over Juventus in Turin in the first leg of the quarterfinals, and took charge of Bayern’s 3-1 home victory over PSG in the group stages. He was also in the middle when Spurs beat Zinedine Zidane's side 3-1 at Wembley at the same phase of the tournament.
