The Most Perfectly Timed Moment In Football History Happened During Last Night's Coverage

The Most Perfectly Timed Moment In Football History Happened During Last Night's Coverage
Fans watching the Champions League broadcast last night were taken aback by a moment of television tricky, one that conjured up memories of an infamous Rafael Benitez clip.

During the warm-ups before the start of Tuesday night's games, eagle-eyed observers spotted a remarkably well-timed pass in one game, which subsequently appeared to meet a receiver in a different game.

From BT Sport's multi-game hub, it looked very much like RB Leipzig's Amadou Haidara passed the ball straight to Borussia Dortmund's Emre Can.

As one Twitter user put it, it was as if an RB Leipzig player "Passed the ball across Germany".

Rather unsurprisingly, the original Tweet did very well indeed, garnering over 30k likes, and almost 4k retweets at the time of writing.


If management doesn't work out for the Spaniard, he could always try his hand at TV direction!

Tuesday night's clip involved two matches: Borussia Dortmund v Sporting Lisbon, and on the other side of Germany, RB Leipzig v Club Brugge.

It was a mixed evening for the Bundesliga sides, as while Dortmund held on for a narrow 1-0 win, Die Roten Bullen slipped to a shock 2-1 home defeat against the club from Belgium.

Both sides return to Bundesliga action this weekend, with Dortmund welcoming Augsburg to the Westfalenstadion, while RB Leipzig host newly-promoted VFL Bochum.
