The UEFA Champions League round of 16 stage continues, and today's games offer one of the most anticipated matchups of the entire round as the second leg of Bayern Munich vs PSG begins very shortly.   

Every game will be shown live in many countries around the world, but don't worry if you're on holiday right now — because you can watch the Champions League live from anywhere with a VPN (opens in new tab).

Champions League 22/23 key fixtures

Next  game (Wednesday, March 8):
► Bayern vs PSG
• Time — 8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT / 7 a.m. AEDT (March 9)
• U.S. — Free Paramount Plus (opens in new tab) trial

Last night saw Benfica book their place in the quarter-finals in some style thrashing Club Brugge 5-1, to win the tie 7-1 on aggregate. Premier League side Chelsea also confirmed their spot in the next round after beating Dortmund 2-0 in a game full of talking points. Looking to join them tonight will be Bayern, PSG, Tottenham and Milan, but only two of the four can progress. 

Tottenham welcome AC Milan to their posh North London stadium and face the task of coming back from a one-goal defeat in the first leg. The task at hand is the same for PSG, who lost 1-0 to Bayern in their first meeting. The difference is that the champions of France are going to need to mount a comeback away from home and without the skills of talismanic attacker Neymar, who's been ruled out for the rest of the season.  

And the good news is that you can watch it all because every game is being broadcasted somewhere in the world, but we'll show you how to tune in from anywhere. Read on for our full guide to how to watch Champions League live streams online.

Champions League live streams around the world

How to watch Champions League live streams of every game

Every Champions League 22/23 game will be streamed live online somewhere in the world. The trick is in finding out where.

In the U.K., for example, all 125 games in the Champions League 22/23 group stages and knockout rounds will be streamed live on BT Sport. 

That's good news wherever you are, because a VPN — or virtual private network — will let you tune into U.K. coverage from anywhere on the planet. And the same goes for every other country. So, if you're a Brit on vacation in the U.S., you'll be able to use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live on your usual services.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Paramount Plus or another service and watch the game.

Some games will also be shown on CBS, and Spanish-language coverage is available on TUDN or UniMás with your cable package.

If you've cut the cord and don't have cable, Fubo.TV is another option. The Pro Plan costs $70 per month but gives you 121 channels, including CBS local channels, TUDN and UniMás, plus lots more for sports fans to enjoy.

Paramount Plus (opens in new tab)

Paramount Plus (opens in new tab) combines what used to be CBS All Access with even more content from the deep ViacomCBS vault. For $9.99 per month, get access to Survivor and Big Brother episodes, as well as originals like Star Trek: Picard and The Good Fight.

Canadians are just as lucky as their southern neighbors, because they can watch all the Champions League live streams on DAZN (opens in new tab)

Sadly, DAZN no longer offers new customers a 30-day free-trial period, so you'll have to pay the $24.99 CAD per month fee, although you can save a little by buying annually ($199 CAD). DAZN, if you're unfamiliar, has apps on every single streaming platform there is.

Canadians stuck abroad that still want their low-price alternative can use a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) to trick their streaming device to thinking it's back in the great white north.

To watch the UEFA Champions League 22/23 campaign in the U.K. you'll need BT Sport (opens in new tab), because it has the rights to all 125 games in the group and knockout stages. 

Prices differ hugely depending on whether you already have BT TV and a BT broadband subscription. If you have both, you can add the Sports package for £15/month plus a £20 upfront fee, or go for the £40/month Big Sports package which also includes all of the Sky Sports channels.

Another option for non-BT subscribers is the BT Sport Monthly Pass (opens in new tab) (£25), which lets you watch via an app for a fixed time, with no need for a lengthy commitment.

All sounds great, right? But if you're not in the U.K., you can still follow the games by using one of the best VPN services, such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)
