2006 UEFA Champions League

Chelsea vs. Barcelona

In a UEFA Champions League tie between Chelsea and Barcelona, Hauge sent off Chelsea defender Asier del Horno for a challenge on Barcelona's Lionel Messi, and Chelsea eventually slipped to a 2-1 defeat. Hauge received death threats after the match from Chelsea fans, but stood by his decision. This incident was not dissimilar to what fellow referee Anders Frisk had faced the previous year after refereeing a similar match between these two sides.


On May 17, 2006, Terje Hauge became the first Norwegian referee to referee in a UEFA Champions League final. He took charge of the match between Arsenal and Barcelona at the Stade de Francemarker in Parismarker. During the match, he created history when he showed a red card to goalkeeper Jens Lehmann of Arsenal, making Lehmann the first player ever to be sent off in a Champions League Final.

Hauge later admitted that although he was pleased with his overall display, he might have been too hasty in sending off Lehmann, and on hindsight should have taken more time to make a decision.
