Control: Not enough control in challenging environment. Courageous early yellow for Sergio Ramos for dissent, too little in the second half and extra time.

General assessment
My computer collapsed after I had finished a longer report, so only the short form. Very difficult task, but in my mind not firm enough for this hot match. It wasn't his best performance in my mind.

Other Encounters

A very mixed picture

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2013 - 2014 final:
Real Madrid - Atlético de Madrid, 4 - 1. Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, Lisbon, Portugal, 2014-05-24

I had to rewrite this report after my computer decided to collapse on Sunday morning erasing my very detailed analysis. In a nutshell: Bjorn Kuipers was alright, but he wasn't as good as I have already seen him. He was strong in terms of game calls, but looked weak in terms of discipline control even though he showed twelve yellows and send Diego Simeone to the stand.

Difficult task ahead
A spanish derby in the final - this was a hard task for everyone. Kuipers started well, but lost it in half two and extra time allowing too much dissent, pushing and arguing about clear decisions. First yellow was borderline, good was the booking for Ramos who protested against it not being red. But then, Kuipers caved in to protests and talked things down. This wore out quickly, it is not good trying desperately to avoid sending a player off in the final for a second yellow just for the sake of it.

Decisions in the game
His decisions for freekicks were good, he allowed play to develop and he was in the picture. But his body language was passive and almost slow in reacting towards the events that unfolded. Diego Simeone needed to be restrained earlier, but this fits to the performance as a whole. I had hoped for a firmer hand knowing that this would have been even more difficult. It looks to me as Kuipers chose the easier way out by deciding not to look too closely in some departments. Real had the momentum after the 1-1 before the end and won it accordingly.
