The match will be played on Tuesday 17 February 2015 at the Parc des Princes stadium.

Çakır has a reputation of being harsh on English club players in European competition. The experienced referee has sent off Nani, Steven Gerrard, John Terry and Mario Balotelli in the past.

Çakır became the first Turkish referee in 40 years to officiate at a World Cup this summer, following in the footsteps of Doğan Babacan who was assigned to officiate the 1974 World Cup.

The 37-year-old is the most experienced Turkish referee at International and European level.

The Turkish referee averages 4.03 yellow cards per game, 0.19 red cards per game and 0.2 penalties per game.
