It is not the first time that Taylor has been handed the whistle for one of Spain's big sides, having already officiated Champions League games with Barça as well as Sevilla and Valencia in the Europa League.

The man in the middle for Atlético Madrid's home game against Juventus at the Wanda Metropolitano is Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands. He will be assisted by Mario Diks and Hessel Steegstra, while the man in the VAR box will be Jochem Kamphuis.
