Björn Kuipers was in charge of this tough match. Even though it was of course benefitted by the pedantic style of Benquerenca in the first leg, the impression of a tough match confirmed today, 6 yellows, 2 reds, that is the result and sometimes I had the feeling that Kuipers was not far away from loosing the control a bit.
A very entertaining match, Gomez again showed his outstanding striker skills and on both sides, there were many attempts, this match was never boring and the best thing was that Kuipers cheered us and the match up. In the time when the ludic aspects were a bit lost, he issued many cards and continued therefore the high level of entertainment.
CARDS AND CALLS
He played with the advantage but did not forget to book Badstuber afterwards, a yellow card with consequences..all the yellows were spot on. The second yellow card to Zuniga as well, a stupid foul, the commentator even stated that it could have been a straight red, well, he was not that wrong with his statement..the second yellow was more difficult. Many replays, I have seen many replays...both players carted out their arms, Cavani fell, and it is yellow. A bad call in my opinion, even no foul, Bas Nijhuis should have seen it, but finally, it is some kind of interpretation and perhaps the Dutchmen saw something different.
SANDER VAN ROEKEL
The assistant referee 1 van Roekel had many difficult offside situations to solve, prior to Bayern's 2-0 and 3-0, both decisions 100% correct and very difficult to see.
