Turkish referee Cüneyt Çakır will officiate tomorrow's Champions League semifinal between Liverpool and Barcelona, UEFA confirmed yesterday.

The second leg of the semifinal will be played in Liverpool's home ground, Anfield. The assistant referees for the match will be Bahattin Duran and Tarık Ongün, with Portugal's Artur Soares Dias serving as the fourth referee and Germany's Felix Zwayer and Sascha Stegemann carrying out the video assistant referee duties.
