Spaniard Alberto Undiano Mallenco will officiate Napoli’s Europa League quarter-final first leg at Arsenal on Thursday.
Undiano Mallenco is one of the most experienced in his trade, with over 500 competitive matches under his belt.
The 45-year-old oversaw Arsenal’s 3-0 win against BATE Borisov in the last 32, as well as Roma’s 1-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2017-18 Champions League Round of 16.
He is the second Spanish referee to be assigned a European match involving a Serie A side this week after Carlos del Cerro Grande was given Ajax-Juventus.
