The second leg of the Clasico Supercopa de Espana between Real Madrid and Barcelona has become the most-watched Super Cup match in history.
According to viewing figures released today, Wednesday night’s match between the fierce rivals, which saw Real come out on top 2-1 on the night to win on away goals, pulled in 10.4m viewers.
This equated to a 61.3 per cent share of the television audience in Spain and outdid last season’s second leg Super Cup clash between the two, which at 9.2m viewers and a 62.2 per cent share, was the previous most-watched Super Cup match.
Last night’s figures peaked at the end of the first half, when Lionel Messi scored his free-kick, with a 11.4m audience and 64.8 per cent audience share.
The data from Wednesday’s game also represents a 3.2m increase in average audience on the previous week’s first-leg meeting between the two teams.
