Manchester City's UEFA Cup game away to Schalke 04 on Thursday evening saw a respectable 1.2 million viewers tune in to Channel Five's coverage.

Other estimates show the European TV audience with the likes of German channel ZDF showing the game live helped that figure reach a total audience closer to the six million mark.

Ronaldo versus Manchester City's new Brazilian folk hero Robinho is the sort of exotic and mouthwatering clash the modern Premier League thrives upon. It is why the 150th Manchester derby, which started out life as a local tribal conflict, will be screened live in 211 countries with a TV audience measured in billions. They will be glued to their screens in Abu Dhabi, whose takeover of City earlier this season changed the Premier League landscape forever, and Florida, home of United owners the Glazer family. And 20 countries will be represented in the two playing squads, from Brazil to Zimbabwe, Serbia to South Korea. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-1090521/The-world-watching-Manchester-derby.html
