For the second time I saw the same match of my friend Alberto, and he sent his report and his impressions to me, here they are with some thinks I added.
Rocchi was during al the match very communicative he gave good advantages, he let the players play with out being aggressive and he did no showed any cards until the last stages of the match. The first foul of the match was on the 13th minute, which makes clear that the match was very clean and makes the things easy for the ref.
He never listen to the players complains specially when the fallen in the area with out reason. He was very calm and worried for letting the players play. He had a good criterion in the way he whistle for the handballs. One of his assistants had some mistakes but nothing important.
One word on his style, you can like it or not, but it was appropriated to the match, and he deserves a match in the knock-out stage.
Chelsea is in the next stage and for a long time I haven´t seen a good match like this of this team, I hope they continue with this level. Valencia will play Euro League next year and they could have a change of a semifinal or maybe the final?
