Serie A: Appointments referees 18th day
Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples Friday 13 h. 20.45
Referee: Doveri of Rome 1
Assistants: Costanzo – Passeri
IV: Chiffi of Padua Var: Mariani of Aprilia
The big match could only go to Doveri, who has returned to absolute levels of performance this season. The whole referee team is made up of internationals, this is to give total guarantee to the two teams on the pitch. In this match the championship could be completely reopened, the designator is on the safe side by calling Duties.
Zini stadium in Cremona Saturday 14 h. 15.00
Referee: Massa from Imperia
Assistants: Galetto – Policeman
IV: Colombo of Como Var: Banti of Livorno
Delicate match for the position of the Cremonese. The Ligurian referee, one of the best this season, is the right one to direct this Lombard derby.
Via Del Mare stadium in Lecce Saturday 14 h. 18.00
Referee: Orsato from Schio
Assistants: Pagliardini – Rossi M
IV: Massimi di Termoli Var: Mazzoleni di Bergamo
Important match for our world referee, who did so much good in Qatar. Orsato’s presence on the pitch will be a stimulus for the other referees who must see him as a point of reference, to always give their best.
Giuseppe Meazza Stadium in Milan Saturday h. 20.45
Referee: Fabbri of Ravenna
Assistants: Valeriani – Di Monte

Return to the field for the Romagna referee after a few uncontested matches. He’s not having his best season, let’s hope he can return to important levels from Saturday.
Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia Sunday 15 h. 12.30
Referee: Pairetto di Nickelino
Assistants: Mondin – Lombardo
IV: Ferrieri Caputi of Livorno Var: Guide of Torre Annunziata
The Piedmontese referee in this match has to confirm that the negative period is behind us, after a not exactly brilliant start. The match is delicate for both Sassuolo and Lazio, the designator calls an international to be sure of not having negative surprises.
Stadio Grande Torino in Turin Sunday 15 h. 15.00
Referee: Ghersini of Genoa
Assistants: Tegoni – Cipriani

Dacia Arena stadium in Udine Sunday 15 h. 15.00

Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo Sunday 15 h. 18.00
Referee: Aureliano of Bologna
Assistants: Zingarelli – Garzelli
IV: Paterna of Teramo Var: Dionisi of L’Aquila
Interesting game and Aureliano with his experience should bring it to port. He is a referee who has proven to be reliable in the last two years and Rocchi rightly takes him into consideration.
Stadio Olimpico in Rome Sunday 15 h. 20.45
Referee: Giua from Olbia
Assistants: Bindoni – Prenna
IV: Maresca of Naples Var: Nasca of Bari
Fourth consecutive exit in Serie A for the Sardinian referee, after the good performance in Spezia-Atalanta. For him it will be a game to make the designator understand that he has made the leap in quality and deserves games of a certain importance.
Castellani stadium in Empoli Monday 4 pm h. 20.45
Referee: Santoro of Messina
Assistants: Scatragli – Trinchieri
IV: Sozza di Seregno Var: Marini of Rome
Another delicate match for the Sicilian referee, who is growing a lot this season. The designator is believing in him and he is proving to be one of the most reliable youngsters this season.
