The referee is the one who takes charge of a match, along with the help of two assistant referees (formerly know as linesmen), although for the first time in the tournament’s history, this year referees will have goal-line assistants. The referee is the person who enforces the rules of the game and every time he walks out on the pitch, that particular match is entrusted to them. His decisions are final and he has the authority to reschedule, stop, or abandon a match (in extreme weather or crowd control problems). The referee enforces the law of the game and he is the one who awards free kicks and penalty kicks and also keeps a check on the time. He also is the one who shows the yellow and red cards for offences committed on the pitch. All these penalties awarded by the referee are popular amongst some bettors, for example how many red or yellow cards are shown in a match, how many penalty kicks are awarded, etc. Check out online betting tips today at TitanBet for all the latest odds and tips on forthcoming matches.
