Mateu Lahoz to officiate Clasico

Miguel Mateu Lahoz will take charge of the Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga on March 22.

Los Blancos have pipped the Catalans to two trophies under the referee’s watch, namely the 2013 Supercopa and the Copa del Rey final a year later, both of which finished 2-1 in their favour.

Nonetheless, the capital giants lost the first leg of their Copa last-16 tie against Atletico Madrid in January with the official overseeing proceedings.

Despite being just 37, Mateu Lahoz is considered one of UEFA’s elite referees, but he will surely have his work cut out in a potential title decider at Camp Nou.
