Most-watched soccer games in the USA: April 15-21, 2024

The numbers are in for the most-watched soccer games in the USA on April 15-21, 2024, with one competition dominating the top three. That tournament is the UEFA Champions League, which wrapped up the quarterfinal stage last week.

Top of this list was the nail-biting showdown between Real Madrid, the most successful club in the competition's history, and defending champions Manchester City. The two sides played out a 1-1 draw, with the tie entering extra time and eventually penalties before Los Blancos won on spot kicks.

Over one million average viewers — 1,107,000, to be precise — tuned in to CBS to catch the action live as Ancelotti's men dumped the Cityzens out of the competition to book a semifinal showdown with Bayern Munich.

Furthermore, an additional 712,000 average viewers caught this game on UniMas, with this broadcast nearly making the top three. Meanwhile, 219,000 opted for TUDN's coverage, meaning this tie earned an audience of over two million in the USA across several platforms.

And it did not stop there. In second was another UEFA Champions League game aired by CBS, this time PSG's dramatic win over Barcelona. A total of 932,000 average viewers tuned in to witness the Catalan giants throw away a 1-0 lead to lose 4-1 (4-6 on aggregate) following Ronald Araujo's first-half red card.

Wrapping up the top three is Pumas UNAM's showdown with Club America, which the Eagles lost 2-1. 812,00 average viewers caught this fixture on Univision as Club America saw their lead over nearest rivals Toluca vanish, with André Jardine's side sitting top of the table on goal difference.

Barca chief wants Clasico replay if Yamal "ghost goal" call wrong

Barcelona president Joan Laporta said Monday the club will demand a Clasico replay if they can prove officials made a mistake by not allowing Lamine Yamal's "ghost goal".

The champions fell to a 3-2 defeat against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday in a match that featured multiple controversial incidents, leaving their arch-rivals 11 points clear at the top of La Liga.

The most debated was 16-year-old winger Yamal's first-half flick from a corner which may have crossed the line before Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin pushed it away.

Without goal-line technology in Spain, officials used VAR to try and confirm if the ball had crossed the line but could not be certain it had and so play continued with the score level at 1-1. Read more…
