Morten Krogh will take charge of Manchester City’s visit to Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, it has been announced.
Manchester City could take a significant step towards qualification for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League in midweek, as Pep Guardiola’s side look for their third successive Group G victory.
The current holders beat RB Leipzig to move three points clear at the top of their Champions League group prior to the international break, courtesy of late goals from Julian Alvarez and Jeremy Doku at the Red Bull Arena.
Alvarez and Doku also helped Manchester City to victory in the Premier League on Saturday, as the Sky Blues bounced back from consecutive losses with a 2-1 win over Brighton at the Etihad Stadium.
Young Boys are winless in Group G and have never previously faced the treble-winners, ahead of the midweek meeting in Bern.
Manchester City have travelled to the Swiss club early to familiarise themselves with the artificial pitch – a surface Manchester United players have criticised in the past.
Ahead of Wednesday’s clash, UEFA have announced the Match Officials for Manchester City’s trip to Young Boys in matchday three of the Champions League.
Morten Krogh has been named as the referee for Manchester City’s meeting with Young Boys in Switzerland on Wednesday evening.
The Danish referee, who has officiated 10 matches so far this season, has shown 33 yellow cards and no red cards.
Krogh has never previously officiated Manchester City, but was the referee for Liverpool’s recent UEFA Europa League clash against Union Saint Gilloise earlier this month.
Krogh will be accompanied at the Wankdorf Stadium by Assistant Referees Dennis Wollenberg Rasmussen and Steffen Bramsen.
Video Assistant Referees
Overviewing proceedings will be Video Assistant Referee Paolo Valeri and Assistant Video Assistant Referee Massimiliano Irrati.
Peter Kjærsgaard has been named as the Fourth Official.
The referee will be overseeing conduct within the two dugouts, and the behaviour of managers Raphaël Wicky and Pep Guardiola.
