Real Madrid vs. Liverpool start time and channels

The Real Madrid vs. Liverpool match is underway right now. Paramount Plus is live streaming the match in the U.S., while UK viewers can watch on BT Sport.

The stakes are generally high in any UEFA Champions League quarterfinal match, but today's Real Madrid vs. Liverpool face-off carries some extra spice. This is the first time the two storied sides will meet since the 2018 Champions League final, a match Real Madrid won 3-1.

You may remember that match turned when Mohamed Salah, Liverpool's top scorer, had to come off injured following a controversial tackle by Real Madrid Sergio Ramos. Liverpool won't be able to extract any revenge against Ramos — he's likely to miss this week's match due to injury — but the Reds will be hoping to score an away goal and set themselves up for a triumphant return to Anfield in the second leg of this Champions League quarterfinal.

Both teams have had uneven seasons, though Real Madrid comes into the first leg of this quarterfinal in better form, having won eight of their last 10 matches in all competitions. Liverpool is coming off a big win over Arsenal after struggling for much of the past two months.

The Real Madrid vs. Liverpool Champions League quarterfinal figures to be a must-watch match. Here's where to find a live stream and how to use a VPN if you can't watch Real Madrid vs. Liverpool wherever you happen to be.
