quarter finals

Baskakov was very busy internationally this century, until 2008. Always there in the UEFA Cup, reaching the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup in 2006 and of the Champions League in 2007. We found only one match for him in the first half of 2008, again a quarter final. See his palmares

alleging

It is alleged on Russian sites and blogs that his not playing an important part internationally at the end of his career could have the following reasons:

- Bad reviews for Milan - Bayern Leverkusen and Lyon - Stutgart in 2007

- The new member of the Russian referee commission, Sergej Zoejev, does not lobby for Baskakov, in fact lobbies badly because there are no Russian referees on a high level. (Some say Valentin Ivanov's dreadful performance in the World Cup 2006 is the cause of this).

Looking at his matches, you can see he has sent off more players in 2007 than in the rest of his international career.

but

There he was again: September 2008, Champions League group stage.

Did you know
ELITE

  • UEFA promoted Iouri Baskakov to 'Elite Referee' in the 15th UEFA Advanced Course for Elite and Premier Referees in february 2007.
  • On the very day that Iouri Baskakov was to take charge of the Russian Super Cup (march 2008), his father - Valeri Baskakov also a famous referee - died. Valerie Baskakov was 70.
  • When you read that Yuri Baskakov was once suspended you should keep in mind that all Russian referees face suspension when they perform badly (in the eyes of the football federation). In fact most Russian referees have been suspended at one point in their careers.
  • In 2006, after the UEFA cup match AEK - Hearts, Hearts majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov accused Yuri Baskakov of corruption. Romanov alleged that Baskakov had sent off Hearts sider Julien Brellier because he wore earrings and a large wedding ring while he allowed the EAK players to wear whatever they liked. Baskokov's answer to these allegations was that all the Greek players' jewelry was taped over according to the rules and Brellier's was not.
    Baskakov stated Brellier must have put his earrings back in after the pre-match check. Baskakov also took a swipe at the Hearts' coach. "If I were him I would be looking into my team's shortcomings instead of blaming the referees", he said. In 2007 the disciplinary investigation by UEFA into this affair was still ongoing.
  • Baskakov controversially oversaw the Champions League quarter-final in 2007 between Bayern Munich and AC Milan against the express wishes of the German club, who believed that they had suffered against Milan the previous year because of another Russian refereee, Valentin Ivanov. Baskakov, according to Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, was too inexperienced to manage the pressure-cooker environment of the San Siro stadium. The match itself seemed to underline Rummenigge's statements, as Baskakov awarded a dubious penalty to Milan.
  • Baskakov was referee of the year 2007 in Russia.
