7. Highlights – Arsenal 1-2 Olympiacos
Arsenal’s crushing Europa League exit at the hands of Olympiakos comes in at No 7 as Mikel Arteta’s men were sent on away goals packing by a 119th-minute Youssef El Arabi strike.
Leading 1-0 from the first leg, Pape Cisse levelled for the Greeks eight minutes into the second half and the last-32 tie went to extra time.
In the additional period Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to have sent Arsenal through to the next round with a sensational bicycle kick but El Arabi had other ideas.
And there was even time for Aubameyang to spurn a golden opportunity to salvage victory for the Gunners right at the death.
6. Full Fight – McGregor vs Cowboy
SPOILER ALERT: This wasn’t a long one. The year began with the sensational comeback of UFC legend Conor McGregor against grizzled veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in Las Vegas.
The Notorious was not messing about and made no mistake with a brutal knee to Cowboy’s head inside the opening round cueing crazy celebrations inside a buzzing T-Mobile Arena.
5. Highlights – Man United 5-0 Club Brugge
Another Europa League Round of 32 tie second leg as Manchester United did a demolition job on visitors Club Brugge to breeze through to the last 16.
After a 1-1 draw in Belgium, Brugge made it a whole lot harder for themselves inside 22 minutes at Old Trafford as Simon Deli saw red.
United made the extra man count and ran riot with first-half goals from Bruno Fernandes, Odion Ighalo and Scott McTominay before an unlikely double from Fred after the interval sealed a 5-0 win.
4. Highlights – Dortmund 2-1 PSG
The fourth-most watched video, the first from Europe’s premier club competition and a game with no English sides in sight.
With supporters in attendance at Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund claimed a huge win over Thomas Tuchel’s side thanks to a sensational double by wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland either side of Neymar’s reply.
The then-teenager celebrated in style with a meditation celebration as Dortmund looked to have one foot in the quarter-finals though PSG would eventually have the last laugh…
3. Full Fight – Usman vs Masvidal
Into the top three is Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal in Abu Dhabi as the main event of UFC 251 lived up to the billing with a fascinating welterweight bout.
Usman wore Masvidal, who took the fight on just a week’s notice, down and claimed victory via a unanimous decision to retain his UFC welterweight title.
2. Highlights – Real Madrid 1-2 Man City
Manchester City’s quest for Champions League glory appeared to have a milestone moment as Pep Guardiola came back to the Santiago Bernabeu to haunt Real Madrid once again.
Isco opened the scoring for Zinedine Zidane’s side in the first leg of the Round of 16 clash as Vinicius Junior took advantage of some slack defending to tee up the Spaniard on the hour mark.
But Gabriel Jesus nodded City level from close range with 12 minutes remaining and things got even better when Kevin De Bruyne netted a penalty after Raheem Sterling was brought down.
Sergio Ramos was sent off late on for Madrid who would go on to lose by the same scoreline in Manchester as City advanced to the quarter-finals.
1. Highlights: Wilder vs Fury 2
The best of the most highly-anticipated heavyweight boxing fight in recent memory – Wilder vs Fury 2 – was the most-watched video on BTSport.com in 2020.
Billed as Unfinished Business after the two battled to a controversial draw back in December 2018, Wilder vs Fury 2 did not disappoint at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fury came out on top delivering a textbook display of dazzling boxing as the Gypsy King claimed the victory with a seventh-round TKO.
