Germany’s Marco Fritz will be in charge of VAR in tonight’s match between Real Sociedad and Salzburg, taking over the role originally assigned to Poland’s Tomasz Kwiatkowski, who was in charge of video refereeing in the controversial PSG-Newcastle game on Tuesday night.

Fritz will be in charge of the VAR in the match that will take place at “Reale Arena” and will be accompanied by the Turkish Alper Ulusoy. The main judge will be the Ukrainian Mykola Balakin.

Kwiatkowski assisted his compatriot Szymon Marciniak from the VAR box in the clash at the Parc des Princes, which ended in a 1-1 draw due to a controversial penalty in favor of Luis Enrique’s side awarded in extra time and converted in goal by Kylian Mbappe.

The referee who officiated the World Cup final in Qatar between Argentina and France a year ago and the recent Champions League final between Manchester City and Inter announced a maximum penalty for a move in which a pass from Ousmane Dembele struck Tino’s body Livramento and then lightly touched the elbow, which caused great displeasure to the English, who were enjoying the triumph in the French capital.
