Stephanie Frappart became the first female referee to take charge of a Champions League match when she officiated at the Juventus-Dynamo Kyiv tie on Wednesday.
The 36-year-old Frenchwoman had previously refereed two Europa League matches and has taken charge of 18 matches in La Liga since making her debut in the French top flight in April last year.
She also refereed the Super Cup match between Liverpool and Chelsea last year and the women’s World Cup final.
Meanwhile, Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 750th goal of his remarkable career in a 3-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv on Wednesday.
Federico Chiesa, with his first-ever Champions League goal, and Alvaro Morata were also on target while Ronaldo reached another milestone although it was far from his most spectacular goal as the ball appeared to go in off his shin.
The 35-year-old has scored 450 goals for Real Madrid, 118 for Manchester United, 102 for Portugal, 75 for Juventus and five for his first club, Sporting.
Ronaldo said on Instagram: “750 goals, 750 happy moments, 750 smiles on the faces of our fans. Thanks to all the players and coaches who have helped me reach this incredible number, thanks to all my loyal opponents who have made me work harder and harder every day.”
“Next stop: 800.”
Juve, second in the group with 12 points and three behind Barcelona, went ahead in the 21st minute when Chiesa scored with a textbook downward header from Alex Sandro’s teasing cross.
His first goal in the competition came just over 20 years after his father Enrico scored his last, for Fiorentina against Bordeaux.
