Rizzoli has proven time and time over that he can be one of the best referees in Europe and now that he is Italy's number one referee, he will be refereeing more top matches in Europe.
Tottenham had 4 appeals for a penalty and in my opinion the referee dealt with all of them perfectly. None of them were penalties and the referee should have booked Bale for the first dive to send the message: "Just because I'm Italian, doesn't mean I'll fall for all of your dives."
Rizzoli's overall performance was good and no one can have any complaints about him influencing the result with his calls (or non-calls). Well Done!
Be Proud Spurs
One of the best matches in the Champions League mostly because of the good speed both teams had. Yes, Ronaldo's goal was very lucky and Tottenham finally lost at home in the Champions League but Spurs fans should be proud of their team for their brilliant performances.
