Alejandro Jose Hernandez Hernandez has been chosen to officiate the upcoming Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona on December 18.
It’s not the Canary Islander’s first Clasico, and he’s been involved in controversy in the game before.
Hernandez Hernandez has overseen three Clasicos already, each with a different result – one Real Madrid win, one Barcelona win and one draw.
His first saw Real Madrid win 2-1 at the Camp Nou in 2015/16, but Los Blancos were unhappy that Sergio Ramos was dismissed and Gareth Bale had a goal annulled.
In 2016/17 he was in charge at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but Barcelona won 3-2 late on thanks to Lionel Messi, with Ramos sent off again.
His most recent came at the Camp Nou in a controversial 2-2 draw in which Marcelo wanted a penalty awarded at 2-2, and Madrid felt there was a foul in the buildup to Barcelona‘s second goal.
