Between the generous penalty awarded to Angel Di Maria and an arbitration deemed favorable to the Albicelestes, Marciniak was not spared. In its columns of Monday, December 19, The Team moreover, did not go out of its way to give it a 2/10 with the following comment.

“The Polish Szymon Marciniak, an experienced referee in the Champions League, was not up to the circumstances, at least in his mission.
