Damir Skomina Named Referee For Champions League Final And It's Bad News For Liverpool

UEFA's decision to appoint Damir Skomina for the Champions League final spells bad news for Liverpool.

The Slovenian referee will take charge of the Champions League final and it could be a bad omen for Jurgen Klopp's team.

Skomina has refereed five Liverpool games since 2009 and the Reds don't boast a good record under him.

They've lost four out of five matches he's officiated.

He first reffed a Liverpool fixture in 2009 when they lost to Fiorentina at Anfield.

His next Liverpool game took place six years later. Again, they suffered defeat. They lost to Besiktas, followed by another defeat to Villarreal.

He also took charge of Liverpool's defeat to AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final second leg, last season.

Liverpool's sole victory under Skomina happened during this campaign against Napoli. They beat the Italian outfit 1-0 at Anfield thanks to a goal from Mohamed Salah.

So, why have Liverpool been handed the home dressing room? Well, it's due to security reasons.

Spurs fans will be based in the north side of the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. As a result, Spurs and Liverpool have had to swap dressing rooms.

Liverpool will be using the ultra-slick home dressing room, while Spurs will occupy the away dressing room which isn't as luxurious.

Who'll be crowned champions of Europe on June 1? Let us know who you think.
