In one of the crucial moments of the game, the second goal of the German Kai Havertz, the company’s broadcast presents technical problems and the narrator and commentators are silent
During the narration of Bayer Leverkusen’s victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach 3-1, a curious fact happened at work at ESPN’s home office. At the moment of the second goal, scored by the German Kai Havertz, from a penalty, the signal with the narrator Fernando Nardini and the commentator Gustavo Hofman fell and was mute. The company has already apologized to its subscribers due to the technical problem.

Seconds after the goal, the signal with the professionals returned, but overlapped, making the viewer not understand them. After the event, the connection stabilized and Nardini joked: “It’s our famous Murphy’s Law, Again we apologize to the sports fan.” Havertz scored two goals and Bender completed Leverkusen’s victory. Thuram cashed for M’Gladbach.
Due to the global pandemic of the new coronavirus, home office work became more popular, since football only returned in Germany and South Korea. With this, narrators and commentators work from home. As a Disney guideline, professionals must continue with the work of their homes because of the high risk of contagion of the disease.
Moments before the start of the match, journalists reported that home office work would decrease the quality of the broadcast. It is worth remembering that this is the second round of the Bundesliga, since his return, after more than two months of suspension due to COVID-19. In this sense, this was the second weekend of experience for the company with the new transmission method.
The players followed the protocols imposed by the German government and the league. Thus, the match was held without the presence of the public and photos of fans were pasted in parts of the stands. Other rules were followed, such as avoiding hugging and touching hands to celebrate goals and the use of masks by the coaching staff throughout the game.
