Football: Italian arbiter in charge of final.
The 42-year-old will be assisted by compatriots Gennaro Mazzei and Piergiuseppe
Farneti for tomorrow's clash between Valencia and Real Madrid in Paris.
Braschi previously refereed the Cup Winners' Cup final in Stockholm in 1998, where Chelsea beat Stuttgart 1-0.
The big match in Italy tonight is the play-off between Inter and Parma to decide which club plays in the Champions League next season.
The sides finished in joint-fourth place, forcing the one-off play-off in Verona as Serie A placings are not decided on goal difference.
Blue Square have both sides at 13-8 and the draw a 7-4 chance, while Eurobet make Parma slight favourites at 7-5, with Inter 7-4 and the draw 2-1.
Speculation in Italy suggests that Inter boss Marcello Lippi may be seeking alternative
employment if his side does not prevail.
