Bayern vs Chelsea start time and TV channels

Bayern vs Chelsea starts at 3 p.m. ET (8 p.m. local BST time) today (Aug. 8). It will air on CBS All Access, Galavision and Univision in the US, and BT Sport Extra in the UK.

Bayern vs Chelsea live streams are about to start, but this one isn't exactly easy for Americans to come by. Yes, the UEFA Champions League Fixture is on some of the deeper channels and less popular networks, but you don't need to miss a minute of the action. 

And as for the match Bayern is heavily favored after their strong performance at Stamford Bridge, thanks to braces from Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski. Their current run of performances makes them the expected team to advance, as no squad in European Cup OR Champions League history has won by three or more in the first leg of a knockout match (when they were away) and not progressed.

If Chelsea wants to sneak out a win, they'll have to be hoping that Bayern won't be giving them their full attention, instead looking ahead at potential matchups between Barcelona or Napoli.

Bayern vs Chelsea broadcasts live from the Allianz Arena in Munich, but don't expect a crowd, as this will be an empty arena game, to continue to try and limit/stop the spread of COVID-19.
