Nicola Rizzoli: Chosen to referee Wembley final

The 41-year-old from Modena has been an international referee since 2007 and was in charge of the 2010 Europa League final between Fulham and Atletico Madrid in Hamburg, as well as three matches at Euro 2012.

Rizzoli will be assisted by his fellow Italians Renato Faverani and Andrea Stefani for the match between Bayern and Dortmund.

The fourth official will be Damir Skomina from Slovenia and the two additional assistant referees, Gianluca Rocchi and Paolo Tagliavento, are also from Italy.
