Swedish ref Eriksson to take charge

The match officials for the Champions League Round of 16 return against Juventus are from Sweden. Jonas Eriksson has been appointed as referee for Wednesday's showdown. The 41-year-old has taken charge of 32 fixtures in Europe's premier club competition, including six Bayern matches – and the German record champions have yet to be beaten with him on the pitch! Most recently Eriksson oversaw the 4-0 home victory over Olympiacos in the group stage in November 2015. His assistants will be Mathias Klasenius and Daniel Wärnmark, with Mehmet Culum acting as fourth official.
