The UEFA Referees Committee has announced that the English referee Michael Riley has been appointed to officiate at the Champions League tie Olympique Lyon-PSV on Wednesday night. Riley has never taken charge of a PSV game before. Riley was in charge at the Olympique Lyon-Ajax game in 2002 and two years ago he led out the teams of Lyon and Real Sociedad unto the pitch. Riley will be assisted by his country fellowmen David Babski and Peter Kirkup. Michael Leslie Dean is the fourth official. Just like during the first leg in the Eindhoven Philips Stadium, the referee, his assistants and the fourth official can comminute by means of a referee communication system, featuring an open microphone and an earphone. The UEFA is testing the audio system at some Champions League games. So this is the second time in a row that the system is tested during a PSV tie.
