Bayern Munich v FC Barcelona sets Champions League streaming record
Bayern Munich’s 2-0 win over FC Barcelona in the Champions League set a number of competitive benchmarks. The Bavarians now have four in a row over Barca in just over two years, on a combined score of 16-2. And this latest clash between the two European titans set a UCL group stage streaming record for CBS and Paramount+:
Viewers were treated to a modern football spectacle in a rocking Allianz Arena. The technical quality displayed, the dramatic tension and the fascinating objectives worthy of a final.
This Champions League draw was a godsend for everyone, wasn’t it? From neutrals to dedicated fanbases of two of the most important brands in world football, everyone has taken advantage of this tantalizing draw. We also wouldn’t say to any more matchups like this in the future.
Leroy Sané came into the game with an icy finish against Barca and German national team goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen. The Bayern winger now has eleven goals, eight assists in his first twenty Champions League appearances for the club.
Moreover, Bayern is now thirty games unbeaten in the Champions League, a run starting in 2017 and matching Real Madrid’s run from 2012 to 2017. The German champions are about to break it now; only Czech club FC Viktoria Plzeň now stand in the way.
Can Bayern break more records in their next UEFA Champions League outing? Tune in on October 4 to find out.
