Referee Steinhaus promoted as 1st women in Bundesliga

Wide range of scenarios for Bundesliga relegation playoff, European places

She took charge of the 2011 Women's World Cup final and the showpiece of the women's football tournament at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Bibiana Steinhaus will be the first woman ever to referee in the German top flight after the German Football Association (DFB) named her on the list of referees for the 2017-18 Bundesliga season.

"When he informed me in our telephone call about the decision of the referee's commission, I was quite speechless". "It is on the one hand confirmation for the hard work on the way to here, on the other hand also great incentive as so far to continue to work". Steinhaus will be the first female referee in Europe's top five leagues.

Steinhaus says she aims "to make female referees a normal part of professional football and show simply that they belong in the game".

NHL Predictions: Will the Predators win Game 3 vs
The Predators took another lead when Forsberg converted a rebound of a breakaway by speedy Viktor Arvidsson , who had two assists. As the physical play between the two exponentially increased in the second and third periods, it pushed Johansen over the edge.

Steinhaus coolly brushed Guardiola's arm off and the Spaniard was criticised in the German media for inappropriate conduct.

And in December 2015 during a second-division game she sent off Kerem Demirbay for a second booking.

"I am used to this pressure and am convinced I will find my feet quickly in the Bundesliga", she said.

Steinhaus also confronted sexism the year prior while she was assisting during a Bundesliga bout between Bayern Munich and Borussia Mönchengladbach. "I'm very much looking forward to the task that awaits me", Steinhaus told BBC Sport.
