​Record season viewers for Juventus and AC Milan cup clash

Italian club football's return saw 8.28 million viewers tune into public broadcaster Rai to watch the second leg of Juventus and AC Milan's Coppa Italia semi-final on 12th June, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.

Following a three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus, the viewing figures for the club knockout tournament surpass the ratings for the first leg on 13th February, which attracted 8.1 million viewers.

The 0-0 draw that sent Juventus into the final also scored Italy's highest average audience for a free-to-air (FTA) soccer match during the 2019/20 season.

The fixture got a 34 per cent market share, which is also higher than the 30.4 per cent that tuned in for the first leg.
