First time referee appointed for Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Manchester City (22/10/18)

Manchester City take on Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night and the match will be officiated by a referee both sides will be completely unfamiliar with.

42-year-old Carlos del Cerro Grande of Spain is a relatively new face to the European scene and took charge of his first Champions League group stage encounter last month when Ajax beat AEK Athens 3-0.

And Cerro Grande, known for brandishing yellow cards quite liberally, has been tasked with Manchester City’s third Group F game in the Champions League. The Blues are second after an opening day defeat to Lyon at home and win over Hoffenheim on the road.
