Matches Bio Did you know? Palmares
7.0
Control: Almost reluctant to whistle, but when he interfered he did so correctly.
7.0
Calls: Too soft on cards, warned too much. The rest a bit too invisible towards the end.
7.0
Neutrality: Not pro Schalke at least.
8.0
Style: Calm and sober - a typical Dutch approach in my mind.
7.3
General assessment
Bjorn Kuipers was alright. He let go quite a lot which I found a bit too much towards the end. Maybe one or two cards more were needed, but for the rest not really challenged. No mistakes, but not in the top five rank of European referees in my mind (but maybe in the top 15). He lacks the certain something called charisma for me to really be impressed by him.

General assessment
I agree that this ref is good, won't reach the top of European refereeing and this performance was just expected level. Important match well solved with some points for improvement.

Tactical match

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2012 - 2013 group stage:
Schalke 04 - Olympiakos, 1 - 0. Arena AufSchalke, Gelsenkirchen, Germany, 2012-11-21

For 80 minutes, Olympiakos Piräus was lurking for the deceisive counter attack like an alligator below the surface. Schalke had possession, dominated in midfield, but lacked inspiration and precision in the building-up in front of the goal. A lucky shot which seemed not completely unsaveable by the goalie sealed the fate of Olympiakos and sent Schalke through to the next round.

He let go and waved "Play on"...
For most of the match, Bjorn Kuipers let go most of the clumsy stuff in midfield,waved "Play on" and let the match flow to an extent that it was sometimes almost a bit too much. He could have booked more often but he refrained probably thinking that it was not quite worth it. He was lenient for most of the game and warned players before booking them (e.g. Draxler for a late tackle just after half time). The offside decisions were correct, his goodness wore out towards the end when he should have booked Farfan and Maniatis for their niggly interaction just before the final whistle. A penalty appeal for Olympiakos towards the end, but Matip played the ball before touching the foot of the Greek player - so okayish I guess.

No 9,8 just because of the name
It was alright (meaning above 7, but no 8,5 in my opinion because it was not a difficult match) and no 9,8 just because of the name. Experience showed, but Kuipers seems to remain on one level below the real top ranking European referees at the moment.
