Ref Watch: Euro 2021

Euro 2021 is now just under a month away from starting, and while the spotlight may firmly be shining on the players and their respective countries ahead of the tournament kicking off on June 11, the full list of officials who have been selected to referee at the competition was released on Wednesday night. 

We’ve taken a deepdive into each referee’s stats from this season, to see which officials rank either higher or lower in the cards department in the hope that it will aid you when choosing your bets at the Euros this summer.
