Montenegrin referee Nikola Dabanovic will leading the officiating team in the upcoming Europa League clash between Midtjylland and Lazio.
The Biancocelesti are hungry for another strong result in Europe after their thrilling 4-2 win over Feyenoord in their opener, whilst their Danish opposition will be looking to kickstart their Europa League campaign after suffering a frustrating 1-0 loss to Sturm Graz last week. Midtjylland have never beaten an Italian side before, suffering losses to Atalanta and Napoli in recent years.
Below is the full officiating team for Midtjylland vs Lazio:
- Referee: Nikola Dabanovic
- Assistant referees: Milovan Djukic – Vladan Todorovic
- Fourth official: Milos Boskovic
- VAR: Nejc Kajtazovic
- Assistant VAR: Asmir Sagrkovic
The 40-year-old Dabanovic is an experienced referee but he has never officiated a match involving a senior team from Italy. His only experiences with Italian sides came at youth level, where he oversaw two Juventus U19 games, both defeats, and two Italy U19 matches, a draw and a loss.
