France's Stephanie Frappart will become the first woman to referee a men's Champions League match on Wednesday when Juventus host Dynamo Kiev in Turin, European football's governing body UEFA confirmed.

"It is at the same time a privilege, an honour and a responsibility," Frappart said before her first full season at the top in 2019/2020 which was cut short because of the coronavirus pandemic.
