Fans react to 'bizarre' camera angle for Champions League final in Paris

It was like playing a game of FIFA

The camera angle for the Champions League final at the Stade de France caused a lot of controversy on social media, with viewers complaining that is was 'shocking'.


Liverpool's clash with Real Madrid was delayed by 36 minutes because of "security reasons", with pictures and videos emerging online of fans being tear gassed and denied entry into the stadium.

Several fans were also seen climbing perimeter fences and attempting to run past security. A message appeared on the big screens inside the ground stating the delay was because of the 'late arrival of supporters'.

Once the game kicked off, the camera angle became another topic of discussion on social media - with viewers and fans complaining that it kept zooming in and out.


A Twitter user wrote: "Get this fkn co-op camera angle off".

Another added: "Zoom in for fucks sake. Camera’s on top of the Eiffel Tower".


A third said: "BT sports cameras for tonight have been put on the Co-op camera angle".

Another person added: "When they work out how to use the zoom on the camera this is going to be great".


A fifth stated: "This camera angle is awful like I’m playing PES".


Another Twitter user wrote: "Has the cameraman put his fifa camera settings on what is this?"

Liverpool started the game on top and threatened to open the scoring on a number of occasions - with Sadio Mane forcing Madrid shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois to make a smart save in the first period.

The Reds managed to restrict Carlo Ancelotti's men to zero shots inside the opening 30 minutes of the match.
