How to watch the Champions League: Live stream the fifth round of the Champions League anywhere online


Watch Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United in the fifth round of the Champions League anywhere online

All four Premier League teams - Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United - are back in action in the 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League. This match-week presents the toughest fixtures as all four Premier League teams face their closest rivals in the group jostling for position with just two games remaining in the group stage.

The best way to watch the 2021-22 Champions League in the UK is with a contract-free BT Sport Monthly Pass that costs £25/mth and lets you live stream EVERY Champions League game instantly on any device.

Alternatively, if you live in Canada or Austria, you can watch all Champions League games live games on the popular sports streaming service DAZN (that comes with a free trial). If you're travelling or holidaying abroad, you can access both the aforementioned streaming services abroad using a good VPN service, like ExpressVPN.

This week Manchester United face Villareal. Both teams have a similar record of two wins, one loss and one draw from four games. The last time these two sides locked horns, Cristiano Ronaldo rescued United by scoring a goal in extra time, but things may not be as easy in Spain this time around.

Meanwhile, Chelsea face Juventus - one of the few sides that have managed to defeat them this season. While Juventus has already qualified for the next round, Chelsea will want to stamp their authority and prove they have what it takes to repeat last year's success.

Despite their loss to PSG, Manchester City have a point more than their French rivals in the standings. Both teams have been vying for this trophy for ages and this match will see some of the world's best players putting their silky skills on display.

Liverpool are one of four sides (along with Bayern Munich, Juventus and Ajax) with a flawless record in the Champions League, which means that they have automatically qualified for the next stage of the competition. Whether Jurgen Klopp chooses to take his foot off the accelerator and rest some of his players for this clash against Porto remains to be seen.

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.

Watch the Champions League on BT TV with BT Sport

If you sign up for a BT broadband and TV package, BT Sport is included as standard. If you already have BT broadband you can add BT TV and BT Sport will be added automatically. If you already have BT broadband and BT TV but signed up before BT Sport was added as standard, you can add BT Sport to your bundle, starting from for £15/mth. Note that these packages tie you down to a 24-month contract.

Watch the Champions League on BT Sport with Sky TV

If you have a Sky TV package, you can add BT Sport as part of one of three new packages. All three packages come with Sky Sports Main Event, Sky Sports Premier League, Sky Sports Football, Sky Sports Cricket, Sky Sports Golf, Sky Sports Racing, Sky Sports F1, Sky Sports Action, Sky Sports Arena, Sky Sports News and Sky Sports Mix plus BT Sport 1, 2, 3 and BT ESPN and the prices start at £30/mth alongside an existing Sky TV subscription.

Watch the Champions League on the BT Sport app

Once you've signed up for BT TV and/or BT broadband, you can watch all the Champions League matches, including highlights and news, on the BT Sport app.

This app covers the same channels as those available via BT TV including BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3, BT Sport ESPN and BT Sport Extra and is available for iOS, Android and Windows phones and tablets, Apple TV, Xbox or Samsung Smart TV. You can also attach a Google Chromecast and stream the app from your laptop, tablet or phone to your standard TV.

It's worth noting that some BT Mobile SIM-only deals also include the BT Sport app for free. This alone is worth £10/mth, making it worth it, especially if you want to watch the Champions League anywhere online.

How to watch the Champions League: DAZN

If you're a football fanatic, then the up-and-coming sports streaming service DAZN caters to most of your needs - provided you live in Canada, Austria or Germany. The Canadian version of the service, for example, broadcasts the Champions League, Europa League, EFL, and other popular tournaments like the NFL - and it has a free trial for news users. Prices for DAZN differ based upon where in the world you live and if you're abroad, you'll need to access the service using a VPN (see below section).

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.
