ITV’s coverage of Champions League football has been heavily scrutinised over the years, with many fans calling for them to stop covering football all together.
But who would replace them? Well it appears E4 have shown some early potential as a worthy replacement following.
Arsenal‘s Champions League meeting with Bayern Munich last night was billed as ‘Mission Impossible’ by most fans who had written of their chances of overcoming a 2-0 deficit from the first leg at the Allianz Arena, where Bayern haven’t lost all season.
And E4’s choice of movie showing at the exact same time as last night’s kick-off appeared to be beautifully accurate as Arsenal could only muster a 1-1 draw to end their Champions League dream for another season.
