Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir has been appointed as the man in the middle of the park when Real Madrid welcome Bayern Munich to the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final fixture with Los Blancos at an advantage after edging the first leg fixture 2:1 away at the Allianz Arena

The Turk is a familiar face to Real Madrid having overseen the 3 nil win away to Juventus in Turin in the quarter-finals first leg fixture.

Cuneyt Cakir was also the referee when Tottenham welcomed Real Madrid to Wembley. He also oversaw the return leg of the UCL semi-final fixture between Los Blancos and city rivals Atletico Madrid last season at Estadio Vicente Calderon.
