Referee Vincic to Oversee Lazio UCL Opener vs Atletico

Slovenian referee Slavko Vincic will lead the officiating team in the upcoming Champions League clash between Lazio and Atletico Madrid.

The Biancocelesti need to get off to a strong start in Group E, where they’re joined by Feyenoord and Celtic, as well as Diego Simeone’s side. The team reached the Round of 16 during their last Champions League campaign, a clear goal for this season.

Lazio have struggled to impress in the early weeks of this Serie A term, losing three of their four opening games. Maurizio Sarri’s side will need to shake off the loss to Juventus as they work to secure all three points in their European opener against Atletico.

Below is the full officiating team for Lazio vs Atletico Madrid:

  • Referee: Slavko Vinčić (SVN)
  • Assistant referees: Tomaž Klančnik (SVN) and Andraž Kovačič (SVN)
  • Fourth official: Rade Obrenovič (SVN)
  • VAR: Nejc Kajtazovic (SVN) and Bastian Dankert (GER)

Atletico also haven’t looked their usual best in La Liga this season, picking up seven points from their opening four games. On Saturday, Simeone’s side fell in a painful 3-0 loss to Valencia.
