Slovenian referee Matej Jug will oversee the upcoming Europa Conference League clash between AZ Alkmaar and Lazio.
The Biancocelesti travel to the Netherlands desperate for a win after suffering a disappointing 1-0 loss to the Eredivisie side in the first leg in Rome last week.
On paper, Lazio are one of the stronger teams in the Conference League and could look to make a run to the final, but first they’ll need to find a confident victory against AZ on Thursday.
Below is the full officiating team for AZ Alkmaar vs Lazio (via LazioNews24):
- Referee: Matej Jug
- Assistant referees: Matej Žunič – Manuel Vidali
- Fourth official: Asmir Sagrković
- VAR: Rade Obrenovič
- Assistant VAR: Nejc Kajtazovic
The 42-year-old Jug has overseen one Lazio match in the past, a 1-0 loss to Galatasaray in the Europa League last season. He has never officiated a game involving AZ Alkmaar.
The Slovenian referee is an experienced official, having worked in European competitions for a number of years.
