Englishman Mark Clattenburg will be the referee in this Wednesday's match between PSG and FC Barcelona, the first leg of Champions League quarterfinals.

The 40-year-old referee will whistle a Barça match for the first time, as they have not coincided in the 21 Champions League matches he has participated. However he coincided with Neymar in the final of the 2010 Olympic Games, a match which ended in defeat of Brazil in front of Mexico (1-2).

Clattenburg has also experience whistling PSG. He took part in a match between them and Benfica, last season in the Champions League group stage, which ended in defeat of Laurent Blanc's team.
