The 41-year-old has been officiating top-flight games in England since 2010 and featured in his first UEFA match in 2009.

Taylor had been listed as an additional assistant referee for the 2014 Super Cup clash in which Real Madrid beat Sevilla 2-0.

The assistant referees and VAR team for the game will also come from England, although the fourth official will be Israel's Orel Grinfeld.

Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn are the assistant referees, with Stuart Attwell the VAR.
