A a FIFA-listed referee since 2011the 38 year old has much experience of taking charge in European club fixtures and full internationals.

Thus far this season he has reffed  a UEFA Europa Conference League qualifier between Hearts and PAOK, a Champions League qualifier between Slovan Bratislava and Maccabi Haifa, and Roma’s Europa League group stage victory at Sheriff Tiraspol.

In the last of those he handed out five yellow cards and one red – his only dismissal in European competition so far this term.

He last took charge of an English team’s game in October 2020, when Manchester City defeated Porto 3-1 in a Champions League group fixture.

He will be assisted by fellow Latvians Haralds Gudermanis and Aleksejs Spasennikovs and the VAR will be Dutchman Clay Ruperti, who was the assistant VAR for our 2-1 victory at Freiburg last time out.
