Man City vs. Real Madrid start time and channels

The Man City vs. Real Madrid Champions league match gets underway at 3 p.m. EDT/noon PDT. US viewers can watch on CBS All Access or the CBS Sports Network. BT Sport 1 has the coverage in the UK.

It's almost time for the Man City vs Real Madrid live stream, as these teams have another leg to play in their Champions League knock-out game. But those two teams, which both hope to lift the trophy later this month, have definitely not.

When the second leg of the Man City vs. Real Madrid match gets underway today (Aug. 7) behind closed doors at Manchester's Etihad Stadium, the home side holds a 2-1 lead from the first leg. That gives Man City an edge in the away goals tiebreaker should Real Madrid level the score in today's match — and it provides plenty of inspiration for Real Madrid to attack early and often to make up the deficit.

In other words, expect an exciting Man City vs. Real Madrid match, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, which are set to get underway next week in Portugal. Here's how to not miss a moment of the match by finding a Man City vs. Real Madrid live stream in your area.
