Trust us, you'll want to know how to watch the Champions League 21/22 — because there are some fantastic games ahead coming up over the next few days. 

Champions League 21/22 key fixtures

The 21/22 UEFA Champions League is underway. Full Week 4 fixtures below.
Wednesday's key game (November 3):
Liverpool vs Atlético Madrid
• 8 p.m. GMT / 4 p.m. ET / 1 a.m. PT
• U.K. — Watch on BT Sport
• U.S. — Watch on Paramount Plus or TUDN via Fubo.TV
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The first three weeks have given us some stunning soccer action, with goals and talking points aplenty, and Week 4 looks like being every bit as exciting.

There were certainly plenty of goals in Week 3's games, with Liverpool, Man Utd and PSG all winning 3-2, Manchester City hammering Club Bruges 5-1, Real Madrid hitting five against Shaktar and Ajax, Sporting, Chelsea, Bayern and Villareal all scoring four. In fact, across the 16 games there were a remarkable 59 goals.

This week has started off in much the same fashion, with 27 goals in yesterday's 8 games. Five of them were scored by Bayern Munich, who beat Benfica 5-2 to qualify for the last 16, while Juventus have also guaranteed their place in the next round after a 4-2 win against Zenit. 

Elsewhere, Chelsea won 1-0 away at Malmo to all but guarantee their qualification, but it's much tighter in Manchester United's group, and they'll be grateful for another Cristiano Ronaldo double as they came from behind to draw 2-2 at Atalanta.

In today's first two games, AC Milan and Porto drew 1-1, while Real Madrid beat Shakhtar 2-1. But there are still six more games to come, including Liverpool vs Atlético Madrid — which could see Liverpool confirm their place in the last 16 with a win, plus Manchester City vs Club Bruges and RB Leipzig vs PSG

In short, there's a lot going on. And the good news is that you can watch it all wherever you are. Read on for our full guide to how to watch Champions League 21/22 online.

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.

Soccer fans in the U.S. can watch every single game of the 2021-2022 Champions League campaign on Paramount Plus. That costs $4.99/month for the basic package or $9.99 without ads, but there's currently a 7-day FREE trial of the service, so it's well worth checking out if you haven't used it before.

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 Starter Plan costs $65 per month but gives you more than 117 channels, including CBS local channels, TUDN and UniMás, plus lots more for sports fans to enjoy.

If you already use those services but aren't in the U.S. right now, you can watch the Champions League 21/22 live streams by using a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

Paramount Plus

Paramount Plus 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. And more great stuff is on the way, including Frasier and Criminal Minds revivals.

Fubo.TV

If you love sports, you might want to check out Fubo.TV. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front and has dozens of sports channels, including TUDN. 

How to watch Champions League 21/22 live streams with a VPN

If you're not in your home country during the Champions League 21/22 season and are unable to live stream a game from wherever you are, you can still tune in via a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN makes it appear that you're surfing the web from your home town — meaning that you can access the streaming services you already pay for. It's all totally legal and easy to do.

We've tested many different VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN; it offers superb speeds, excellent customer service and a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out first to see if it's right for you. But you've got other VPN options too, so check out our full list of the best VPN services.

ExpressVPN

Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN 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 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.
