Bayern Munich obliterated Barcelona 8-2 on Friday in what some consider the most exciting game of the season, but more people tuned in to watch Manchester City’s downfall at the feet of Lyon.

Olympique Lyon’s 3-1 win over English giants Manchester City broadcasted through Spanish-language TUDN attracted a total of 402,000 viewers, more than Bayern Munich’s 8-2 thrashing over Barcelona, which attracted an audience of 364,000. Many fans missed-out on the Bayern-Barca clash because it was broadcasted during work hours on Friday at 3 p.m. ET. In contrast, the Man City-Lyon game stole the show because the game aired on a Saturday at 3 p.m. ET. 

Out of the 21 soccer games that made it to the U.S. daily top 150 cable originals and network finals last week, 19 were aired on TUDN, drawing an audience of around 4,251,000 and an average of 212,500 viewers per game. Moreover, thirteen of the 19 games featured Liga MX Clausura fixtures, which totaled 2,514,000 total viewers and an average of 193,000 viewers per game. The remaining six games consisted of two UEFA Europa League matches in Sevilla-Man United and Wolverhampton-Sevilla, and four UEFA Champions League matches in Atalanta-PSG, RB Leipzig-Atletico Madrid, Barcelona-Bayern Munich and Manchester City-Lyon. The two Europa League matches entertained a crowd of 419,000 while the four UCL fixtures drew a total of 1,318,000 spectators, averaging more viewers per broadcast – 329,000 – than all the other competitions in the week.  

FOX Deportes broadcasted one Liga MX Clausura game between Santos and Atlas, which attracted a total of 152,000 viewers. And last but certainly not least, ESPN’s MLS is Back Tournament final broadcast finished second in total viewers – above Barca-Bayern – with 365,000 who saw the Portland Timbers lift the cup after beat Orlando City 2-1.  

One broadcast that caught an eye was TBS Network’s ELEAGUE FIFA 20 Football Ultimate Team Cup Stage IV Episode 1. The episode attracted more viewers than 12 of the 21 games bringing in an audience of 201,000. Not bad for a video game.
