‘Oh no’, ‘will be a tough win’, ‘we’re gonna lose’ – Many Man City fans react as news emerge ahead of CL game vs Club Brugge


Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz will take charge of the Champions League match between Manchester City and Club Brugge on Wednesday night, UEFA has announced.

The Blues thrashed the Belgian side 5-1 a fortnight ago, and a win on Wednesday would open up a five point gap between City and third placed Club Brugge, with just two Group Stage matches left to play.

However, the Blues will not be satisfied with the referee who will manage the match. Ahead of Wednesday’s match, Uefa has announced that Spaniard Mateu Lahoz will be appointed for the clash in the Etihad.

Antonio Mateu Lahoz will be joined by Assistant Referees Pau Cebrián Devís and Roberto del Palomar while Overviewing proceedings from UEFA’s VAR hub will be Video Assistant Referee Ricardo de Burgos. 

He will be alongside Assistant Video Assistant Referee Christian Dingert. While Santiago Jaime Latre has been appointed as Fourth Official for the fixture. 

Lahoz was the man who whistled the final of the Champions League last season, in which City eventually lost out to Chelsea. He last officiated at the Etihad in 2018, when City suffered a 2-1 second-leg defeat to Liverpool

Manchester City Fans will no doubt remember when Antonio Rüdiger got away with a yellow card when he knocked Kevin De Bruyne out of the game.

The news was shared on Twitter by City Xtra, and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
