Doveri appointed referee of crucial Sassuolo-Milan game – the precedents

By Oliver Fisher -

The AIA (Italian Association of Referees) has designated Daniele Doveri as referee for the game between Sassuolo and AC Milan at the Mapei Stadium on Sunday.

It is the last game of the Serie A season for both sides and Milan need a draw or a win to capture the Scudetto. To assist Doveri will be Bindoni and Imperiale as the linesmen, the fourth official will be Piccinini, while Aureliano and Mariani will be in the VAR room.

As report, there are 25 precedents involving Doveri being the Rossoneri’s referee with 14 of those being wins, 7 draws and 4 defeats. In that stretch, Milan received 6 penalties and had two red cards awarded to them.

Sassuolo’s previous games under the 44-year-old are more balanced: in the 18 matches directed by Doveri they got 8 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats.

Meanwhile, Marco Di Bello will be the referee of Inter-Sampdoria at San Siro as the Nerazzurri will take the field at San Siro on Sunday at 18:00 CEST hoping to win and for Sassuolo to do them what would be the biggest of favours.

Di Bello will have Preti and Giallatini as assistants, the fourth official will be Pezzuto and the VAR chief will be Irrati with his assistant being Meraviglia.

  1. Still think the Kessie penalty in the derby was a joke and the Ballo penalty might have been a clean tackle.
    Also he lets teams play very physically. Hurt us when we had Brahim on.

  2. Another witch Hunt, better still we are milan we believe in God almighty and our profession, this is our time.

  3. we need to put our boot on their throat from the first whistle, no red cards but physical as possible, he will let us play physical, just have to feel him out early to “how physical” he will allow.
