Assistant referees: Pau Cebrián Devís, Roberto del Palomar
Additional assistant referees: Carlos Del Cerro, Alejandro Hernandez

Manchester City have no fresh injury concerns. John Stones is available for Tuesday’s clash.
They have Danilo, Ilkay Gundogan, De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Otamendi and Fernandinho who are one booking away from suspension.
Sergio Aguero has shrugged of his injury vows, and returned from the bench against Man United. Guardiola will be desperate to add the Argentinian back to starting XI.
Benjamin Mendy will not be consider as he is only back from injury recently.
For Liverpool, Jordan Henderson is suspended and Alberto Moreano is one booking away from suspension.
Mohamed Salah will face late fitness test. Emre Can remains a doubt with a back problem. Joel Matip (thigh) is out for the remainder of the season, while Joe Gomez (ankle), Adam Lallana (hamstring) are likely to miss game.
Who said What
Jurgen Klopp: “When we lost here 5-0 at beginning of the season everyone saw the quality of city, it was clear. And everyone knows about Pep – he’s the best coach in the world.
“I knew before that they can concede goals and that they can lose, but its tough for all teams in the league.
“Tomorrow presents the chance to go to next round, but I don’t think even Barcelona think they are through – there is always a chance to strike back.
“City have the chance to strike back but so do we and we have the chance to win. Nothing is fixed.
