Howard Webb has been named as the man in charge of the Champions League quarter-final second-leg between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

Webb took the whistle for the 2010 World Cup final as Spain beat the Netherlands, sending off Dutch defender John Heitinga.

Mundo Deportivo has reported that the 44-year-old has now been given the return leg of the tie between La Liga’s top two, which takes place on Wednesday.

The game stands at 1-1 from the first-leg at Camp Nou, Diego Ribas scoring for Atleti with Neymar levelling for Barca.

Webb was also in charge of Real Madrid’s 6-1 win over Schalke in the last round of the competition, and Atletico’s 2-1 win over Porto in this year’s group stage, among other games involving a Spanish side.
