The 44-year-old Italian Orsato will officiate his first major UEFA final, having already overseen eight matches in the Champions League this season, including Real Madrid’s round of 16 first leg against Manchester City in February.

Orsato has also refereed a quarter-final match at the current UEFA Europa League final tournament between finalists Sevilla and Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers and last season was the fourth official for the UEFA Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal.

For Sunday's show-piece final, the Italian will be assisted by countrymen Lorenzo Manganelli and Alessandro Giallatini. The fourth official will be Ovidiu Hațegan from Romania. The video assistant referee (VAR) role has been assigned to Massimiliano Irrati and he will be helped by fellow Italian Marco Guida. Spaniards Roberto Diaz Pérez del Palomar and Alejandro Hernández Hernández complete the VAR line-up.
