Champions League preview
The UEFA Champions League is back, with the continent’s best football clubs set to battle it out over the next eight-and-a-half months to see who will be crowned the kings of Europe at Wembley next June.
Manchester City came into this year’s tournament as champions and are immediate favorites to repeat the feat this time around. The likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and 14-time champs Real Madrid are the teams most likely to stop them.
There’ll be six rounds, from now until Christmas, to see who will proceed to the last 16 (see full schedule below), with all eyes on ‘pool of death’ Group F. Newcastle United are joined by European titans AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund, with the now Neymar-and-Messi-less Paris Saint-Germain still desperate to win the competition that they have so far been unable to buy.
Barcelona already looks in formidable form, dispatching Antwerp 5-0 in their opening game. While Manchester City went a shock goal down against Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade, before coming back to win comfortably. And we already have a Champions League memory to savor, when Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel scored an injury-time equalizer against Atlético Madrid.
The rollercoaster starts again and in this guide, you’ll discover all you need to know about how to watch Champions League live streams – including places that broadcast matches absolutely FREE! We also have details of upcoming fixtures, groups and next year’s final.

In pretty much every country around the world, Champions League soccer is behind a paywall. But that’s not the case for lucky football fans in Ireland and Austria, where selected games are shown for FREE every game week.
In Ireland, they’ll be shown on free-to-air channels and on its easy-to-use streamers RTÉ Player and Virgin Media Player.
This week’s games are Feyenoord vs. Celtic on Tuesday (RTÉ2) and Bayern Munich vs. Manchester United on Wednesday (Virgin Media Two), both at 8 pm local time.
Similarly, Austrians will be able to watch via ServusTV, with commentary of games in German. Unsurprisingly, it’s slated to show the Benfica vs. Salzburg game this week.
And if you happen to be out of Ireland or Austria this week but still want to watch your domestic streams, you can use a VPN to make sure that you can still watch as you would at home. There’s more information on how to further down this guide.
