Jacek Granat is the referee to whom UEFA has entrusted with officiating at the match between Belenenses and Bayern on Thursday. The 41-year-old Pole has been an international referee since 2002 and has already taken charge of two matches involving German teams: The 2-0 victory of Bayer Leverkusen at Maccabi Haifa on October 1, 2002, and VfB Stuttgart’s 1-0 defeat at the hands of NK Domzale on September 29, 2005. In his previous 55 appearances in charge of matches in the UFA Cup, Champions’ League and Champions League qualifiers, Granat has brandished a yellow card on average 4.6 times per game.

<B>Hitzfeld sees no early return for long-term injured</B>
Bayern coach Ottmar Hitzfeld is not banking on an early return to action for his long-term injured roster of Willy Sagnol, Philipp Lahm, Valerien Ismael and José Sosa. “Nothing’s happening in the near future, Hitzfeld told <B>FCB.tv</B> in an interview on Tuesday. At present all four are only capable of working toward their recovery with strength exercises. “We now have to wait for the players to be able to undertake intensive running work outside,” Hitzfeld said. “But they won’t be back within the next two weeks.”

<B>English FA to test Hawk-Eye</B>
The Football Association of England wants to test out electronic monitoring technology for contentious goal-liner decisions, chief executive Brian Barwick told the BBC on Tuesday. The FA plans to implement the Hawk-Eye system, which is currently being evaluated at the Reading football academy. The system is capable of determining exactly whether the ball has crossed the goal line. It is already used at tennis tournaments to decide tricky calls and is a staple tool in cricket broadcasting. After several recent incidents in the Bundesliga when TV evidence showed that referees were wrong not to award goals, Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and general manager Uli Hoeneß have given strong backing to the idea of technological assistance for referees.
