REFEREE
Comment on the Referee Performance
To take into account: 1. Application and Interpretation of the Laws of the Game, Disciplinary Control and (technical) Management of the game. - 2. Physical Condition (Adequate positioning, adequate movement, Anticipation of situations and awareness and Physical Condition in general) - 3. Personality and Tactical approach- 4. Group Work

As always, Portuguese referee was brilliant in such part of referee's job as control and style. His self-confidence, perfect gestures, positioning (including diagonal movement and anticipation) alongside with fresh look relaxed attitude always make a feel he's a perfect referee. As we all know, he's that in those parts of his profession, but calls are not always great. This time he was obviously too lenient to detect some clear fouls. One of them was in situation where Hazard (Chelsea) came into the box and was pushed by Barzagli. Referee forced him to get up but one can discuss about this case. Pushing was clear, repeated twice, but taking into account Proenca's lenient line of managing this game, one can understand his call. Both cards were absolutely correct, especially to Ramires (Chelsea) in 60' for a studs-up tackle in offence. As I mentioned, his overall approach was too lenient and aroused unneccessary controversy considering foul detection. However, still good performance.

To take into account: 1. Physical and technical (Adequate position and movement, Physical Condition and Stamina, Flag Technique, Alertness and reaction to situations in front of his vicinity area, “wait and see technique” 2. Offside and fouls detection

Nice performance, some excellent (non-)offside calls which were almost impossible to detect. Every single call was perfect. He was in alert and nicely positioned all the time.
