The Spanish League is no longer what it used to be. The influence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, undoubtedly, kept a competition current and interesting that for some time now, has not managed to be even close to what the Premier League is. And if anyone had any doubts about that, today it was evidenced in television numbers, since with 800 million viewers, they left behind the little more than 600 who were attentive to Spain.

One of the things that La Liga most expected was the derby between Barcelona and Real Madrid to be clear about how much money for television rights it lost with the exits of Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos. The data was worse than expected and they should find a way out of the problem as soon as possible.

So much so that the match between Manchester United against Liverpool, which featured Cristiano Ronaldo from the start, had more viewers than the match between Barca and Madrid. A fact that worries both clubs, but also Javier Tebas, president of La Liga.

Around 400 million people watched the derby between Barcelona and Real Madrid across the planet, while it is estimated that more than 550 million fans enjoyed the duel between the Red Devils and those led by Klopp. Cristiano Ronaldo shows that he has his own light and does not need a team to generate attractiveness.
