New

Lunati is one of the newest international referees from Argentina, so he hadn´t refereed any big tournament yet. Since his appointment as an international ref., he has taken charge of important matches in the Argentinian league, and also some Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana 1st round games.

Gestures

When he started in 1st divission, players and sport press criticized Lunati because he was a bit overdramatic when he had to book somebody or concede penalties.The players didn' take to his gestures well. He worked on that and now he looks much more calm refereeing.

cat

He is a CONMEBOL category 2 referee.
