|Lazio||-||Atlético de Madrid|
The Elite Development referee Pavel Kralovec from Czech Republic is in a steady rise. Even in this game, he has shown his skill. It was a solid performance, without considerable mistakes. Assistants had a good game, too.
The importance of reproaching
Kralovec was really careful on the pitch: every time that he whistled a foul, he showed great attention to players reaction. He was ready to reproach every possible complaint. In my opinion, he had a full control of the match, almost perfect.
Match had not so big calls to do. Some offside calls and situations to evaluate when Atletico Madrid scored, but not really difficult. All given cards were correct, players immediatly understood their faults. There was a minor complaint by Atletico for a possible penalty in second half, but it was a slight contact, absolutely no foul.
Lazio scored accidentally the first goal (it was a mistake of Atletico keeper), then after they disappeared from the pitch and Atletico had a very easy win.
