ITV beating BBC in battle of the Euro 2020 broadcasters having seen more than DOUBLE amount of goals in tournament

ITV are thumping BBC in the battle of the Euro 2020 broadcasters having shown more than DOUBLE the number of goals.

Both broadcasters have shown six games apiece with the first round of group-stage fixtures in the books.


The BBC appeared to have landed the biggest games, showing the first game of the ceremony – Italy's 3-0 win over Turkey – and the opening ceremony.

They also showed England, Scotland and Wales' opening fixtures.

But ITV have certainly been the luckier of the broadcasters in terms of excitement.

While the six games on the Beeb have seen just nine goals shown – just 1.5 per game – ITV viewers have been treated to 19.

That's a staggering 3.2 goals per game.

While the BBC has endured goal-shy matches such as England's 1-0 win over Croatia and Spain's 0-0 draw with Sweden, ITV have seen net-busters galore.

In just six games, they have already shown Holland's thrilling 3-2 win over Ukraine and Austria's 3-1 victory over North Macedonia.

On top of that, ITV have seen a further three games boasting three goals apiece, including Portugal's 3-0 win over Hungary on Tuesday.
