How to watch the Champions League quarter-finals: Catch the second leg of Barca vs Man United, City vs Tottenham and more

Eight teams must become four as we move towards the business end of football's biggest club competition

The Champions League quarter-final first legs took place last week, and I’m pleased to report that every single one of the four ties is still beautifully poised. Fingers crossed for no more mismatches (we’re looking at you, Man City 7-0 Schalke) at this late stage of world football’s greatest club competition.

The second legs are upon us, as Man City look to keep their quadruple dream alive against Tottenham and Man United face an undeniably daunting trip to Barcelona’s storied Camp Nou stadium.

Keen to find out who’ll make it through to the semi-finals? Below, we bring you everything you need to know about the Champions League quarter-final second legs, including the schedule, how to watch and more.

How to watch Barcelona vs Man United in the UK

BT Sport has exclusive rights to live TV coverage of the Champions League here in the UK, so the second leg of Man United vs Barcelona will be broadcast live from the Camp Nou via BT Sport 2 and the BT Sport app on Tuesday 16 April.

Signing up to BT Sport is relatively straightforward, but you’ll need a subscription to either BT Broadband, Sky TV or TalkTalk TV to be able to do so.

If you have BT TV, then BT Sport is already included in the company’s TV bundles. If you’re just a broadband customer, then it’ll cost you between £10 and £15 per month. There is a three-month free trial that you can make the most of, though.

Sky TV and TalkTalk TV customers can upgrade to BT Sport, starting from £25 per month.

How to watch Juventus vs Ajax in the UK

As Barcelona vs Man United hits our screens on BT Sport 2, the second leg of Juventus vs Ajax, probably the quarter-final with the least English interest, will simultaneously be broadcast on BT Sport 3.

How to watch Man City vs Tottenham in the UK

The second leg of Tottenham vs Man City will be shown live on BT Sport 2 and the BT Sport app.

Coverage starts at 7pm BST on Wednesday 17 April, with post-match analysis and interviews continuing all the way until 10.45pm.

How to watch FC Porto vs Liverpool in the UK

Liverpool vs FC Porto takes place at the same time as Tottenham vs Man City, but on BT Sport 3 and the BT Sport app.

How to watch Champions League quarter-final highlights

Unfortunately, unlike in previous seasons, ITV no longer has the rights to show Champions League highlights on free-to-air TV in the UK.

Instead, BT Sport 2 will air an hour-long highlights programme for the second legs at 10.30pm on Wednesday 17 April.

Working late and can’t catch the game live? Then you should definitely also keep an eye on BT Sport’s YouTube channel – they’re usually pretty quick to upload the highlights.

How to watch the Champions League quarter-finals wherever you are

If you’re signed up to BT Sport but set to be abroad during the Champions League quarter-final second legs, you could always try a virtual private network (VPN).

VPNs basically make your computer think that it’s in another country (i.e. the UK), so you can access web content that would otherwise be foiled by a geoblock.

Simply pay for, download and install your chosen VPN, then choose the UK server, head over to BT Sport’s live website stream and put your feet up as the action unfolds.

To help you make your choice, here are a few of our favourite VPNs at the moment.

We labelled NordVPN “the gold standard for VPNs” in Sherwin’s original review. It sets the benchmark for a reliable, fast and hassle-free VPN. Although its monthly plan might sound expensive, you can currently pick up a three-year plan for the cost of nine months which, put simply, is a snip.

Windscribe is a solid all-round VPN. Although its iOS app is slightly disappointing, it’s easy to use and fairly speedy. You can also use it on unlimited devices, meaning you can watch the football on your laptop, mobile, tablet or any other device.

Hotspot Shield is a fully featured VPN that gave us impressive download speeds of 78% of our regular rate. There’s a friendly mobile app and even a basic free service, although you’ll have to put up with ads and run the risk of your data allowance running out during the big match.
