An expected appointment. With Makkelie getting a SF it certainly makes the final a tricky dilemma to predict with some conviction.

Personally, itís a shootout between Mateu, Taylor and Cakir for the final depending on the way the semi finals pan out.

Kuipers and Orsato for the other semi final 2nd legs.

With all due respect to our English elite referee, I'm not convinced Taylor has yet reached a level to be awarded the CL Final (and the same goes for Michael Oliver).  A second final for Kuipers or Cakir seems more likely, or failing that, perhaps Lahoz if RM are not involved, or Turpin if PSG lose to City in the SF.  I would have thought Lahoz and Turpin were ahead of Taylor in the pecking order but I bow to edy's knowledge on that.

Was surprised to find Kuipers and Cakir's Finals were back in2014 / 2015. How quickly the years pass.

The only reason that Taylor is mentioned for the final apart from generally good season, is that there aren't many options left for UEFA. Lahoz is the prime candidate if RM is out (actually he should have had the final last year instead of Orsato). Turpin and Taylor are the alternatives IF UEFA doesn't want to give the final to a referee who already had it. IMO neither Turpin nor Taylor are now on CL final level but I believe that it's the last thing that matters.
