UEFA confirms UCL final referee

ESPN staff

UEFA has confirmed Pedro Proenca will be the referee for Saturday's Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

Bayern and Chelsea compete for the Champions League trophy this weekend, with the former arguably boasting the upper-hand as the showpiece is to take place at their home ground the Allianz Arena.

Portuguese referee Proenca, a financial director from Pinhal Novo, will officiate the match, having overseen five Champions League games during the 2011-12 season.

Chelsea head into their meeting with Bayern without a number of key players through suspension, including captain John Terry and midfielder Ramires.

Their Bundesliga opponents are also without important personnel due to bans, with Holger Badstuber, David Alaba and Luiz Gustavo all missing out.
