Referee appointed for Manchester City vs. Shakhtar Donetsk (7/11/2018)

Manchester City will have a familiar referee for this Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.

Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai was in charge of one of City’s first ever games in the Champions League, the 2-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in 2011.

Half a decade later he had the whistle on a memorable night at the Etihad Stadium as City beat Barcelona 3-1.

And on Wednesday, it’ll be the 43-year-old in charge again when City host Shakhtar in the second of two successive games between the clubs.

City go into the game ahead of Lyon at the top of Group F, but with just one point between them.
