Today, two of the big powers of European soccer face off in the Barcelona vs. Bayern live stream, for a spot in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League. It's been a while since either team has lifted the trophy — Barcelona last won the tournament in 2015, while Bayern hasn't triumphed since 2013 — so plenty will be at stake when the two teams square off.

And this Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich quarterfinal has more at stake than usual. While Champions League knockout games are usually played out over two legs, the coronavirus pandemic has forced this year's tournament to shrink down the schedule to one match only for each knockout game. (It's also meant that the tournament is being played behind closed doors in a neutral venue.) 

That means the winner of the Barca vs. Bayern Munich match is through to the semifinals, with no second leg to worry about.

Given those stakes, you won't want to miss Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich when the match begins Friday. Here's where you can catch a live stream of the Champions League quarterfinal, along with tips on using a VPN to find the match if it's not available in your area.

How can I use a VPN to watch Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich?

Don't worry if you happen to be some place where the Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich match isn't readily available.
