How to watch the Champions League: Stream the final live online wherever you are

Watch the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid live anywhere in the world

Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the final of the UEFA Champions League later this month.

BT Sport is the official broadcaster of the UCL in the UK and will show the game live on Saturday, 28 May. The easiest way to access BT Sport channels is with a contract-free BT Sport Monthly Pass that costs £25/mth.

Last season, the all-English final between Chelsea and Manchester City was also shown live and for free on YouTube. It is currently unclear whether this will be the case again this year.

Liverpool booked their place in the final by beating Villareal 5-2 on aggregate and are still in the hunt for an unprecedented domestic and European quadruple.

Jurgen Klopp's men led 2-0 heading into the second leg in Spain but first-half goals from Boulaye Dia and Francis Coquelin levelled the tie.

Liverpool responded after the break, however, with Fabinho, Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane all scoring in a fifteen-minute spell that put the tie beyond Unai Emery's side.

Real Madrid put paid to hopes of a second consecutive all-English final by beating Manchester City 6-5 on aggregate.

City took a 4-3 lead with them to Spain and looked nailed on to reach the final when Riyad Mahrez netted 17 minutes from time.

They maintained a two-goal cushion until the 90th minute but then disaster struck, as Brazilian forward Rodrygo scored twice in two minutes to force extra time.

Karim Benzema scored from the spot five minutes into the first period of extra time and that proved enough to dump a shell-shocked City out of the competition.

The final between Liverpool and Real Madrid takes place at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday, 28 May, and details of how to watch it in the UK and abroad can be found below.

How to watch the Champions League in the UK: BT Sport Monthly Pass

The only channel/streaming service broadcasting every Champions League game in the UK is BT Sport. There are a number of ways to get the service depending on how you want to watch, and what TV provider you already have. The slight problem is that most of these methods include opting into a long-term (usually 24-month) contract.

Therefore, the best (contract-free) way to watch BT Sport is to get the new BT Sport Monthly Pass. The pass costs £25 per month and gives you instant access to nine exclusive BT Sport channels, four of which are in HD. You can watch games instantly on any device, stream on two devices at the same time and cancel your subscription at any time.

How to watch the Champions League abroad: Use a good VPN service

If you're out of the country for any of the Champions League games, but don't want to miss out on the action, you can stream BT Sport or DAZN over a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN conceals your location, making your device and apps think you're browsing from any country that you want. So, for example, you can log into BT Sport from the US and watch the game as if you were watching it on your PC at home. It's good practice to use a VPN because it protects all your browsing traffic from everyone, including your ISP. VPNs are especially useful if you travel often because public Wi-Fi networks can be easily breached.
