The Champions League Now Uses 8k Cameras And First Footage Looks Breathtaking

BT Sport have upped their coverage of the Champions League by using '8k cameras' in this evening's clash between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

The cameras are commonplace in La Liga and have earned plaudits throughout this season for offering incredible picture quality.

It's something British fans aren't used to and they got a taste when Liverpool lined up prior to kick-off at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

Mohamed Salah was the first player shown off and there's much to say apart from HOW GOOD DOES IT LOOK?

Fans are brought closer to the action than ever before and footage even looks like something from a video game.

Eder Militao is focused on towards the end and he almost doesn't look real.

Social media have had their say on the cameras and they think it's next-level viewing experience for Europe's elite competition.

La Liga have followed in the footsteps of the NFL with using the cameras and fans first took notice earlier this year.

In the NFL, the camera rig, dubbed "the megalodon" was debuted on FOX in December and has been a huge hit after delivering some gorgeous shots and angles.

WWE and the UFC have also adopted the technology in recent months.

Madrid and Liverpool came into the game with a number of absentees - notably in defence.

The Reds have been missing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez for most of the season through injury, but Madrid have lost Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane in recent days.

Ramos suffered a calf injury on international duty with Spain, while Varane tested positive for coronavirus earlier in the week.
