As was the case in Brazil seven years ago, Kuipers again accompanied by the same linesmen, namely Sander van Roekel and Erwin Zeinstra. This is Kuipers’ seventh final in his career, both at club and national level tournaments.

Some of the important matches that have been led by Kuipers include the 2016 Champions League Final between Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid and the 2018 Europa League Final between Marseille vs Atletico Madrid.
