Record in sight for the final with PSG?

For its part, RMC Sport, which broadcasts the Champions League in encrypted form, has not yet communicated on its own scores. The sports broadcaster had broken its own audience records with the semi-final between PSG and RB Leipzig on Tuesday evening, which he was the only one to broadcast. It had gathered 1.7 million viewers on average, and 2.5 million cumulatively over the entire meeting.

Always effective if not flamboyant, Bayern Munich disposed of Lyon in Lisbon thanks to a brace from Serge Gnabry (3-0). The Bavarian steamroller, favorite of this Champions League, will attack Neymar's Paris SG in a gala final on Sunday. This final will also be broadcast on RMC Sport (paid access), and unencrypted on TF1.
