The second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain will be officiated by Italian referee Daniele Orsato, confirmed UEFA on Sunday. The match will be played at Le Parc des Princes on Tuesday, with the hosts having the upper hand after a 3:2 away victory in Munich.
The 45-year-old has officiated four Bayern matches before, including last season’s UCL final against PSG in Lisbon. Die Roten have won two out of the other three matches under the supervision of Orsato — 5:1 against Benfica and 2:1 against Sevilla in 2018. The only disappointment came against Liverpool in the Round of 16 back in 2019, which they lost 3:1 (via @iMiaSanMia on Twitter).

The Italian had stirred controversy earlier in the competition as he denied Atletico Madrid a penalty against Chelsea in the Round of 16 clash last month. He was also blamed for denying both the teams a penalty in the grand finale of the tournament last season.
