The virtual crowd used to fill the stands for TV coverage of Sevilla vs Real Betis failed to convince, reminding many of retro computer games.

With the match played behind closed doors, digital fans were used to fill the empty seats – but the attempt looks to have fallen flat on its face.
Comparisons were drawn with the attendances in old FIFA games and the cult ’90s classic Sensible Soccer.
