How to watch PSG vs Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid vs Juventus: Live stream both exciting Champions League games

Four strong teams aiming to win the Champions League: here’s how to watch PSG vs Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid vs Juventus tonight

It may only be the second day of the Champions League 2019-2020 season, but there are already two mouth-watering clashes that may leave you swapping channels frantically.

Tonight, 18 September, PSG play Real Madrid, the team that knocked them out of the Champions League in the Round of 16 last year. Earlier this year, Manchester United knocked out PSG at the same stage of the tournament, making it the third consecutive season the French side has not progressed past that round.

At the same time, Atletico Madrid play Juventus, who are the other title contenders because of the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo and the additions the Italian side have made to their team in the off-season, including PSG’s Adrian Rabiot, Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt and Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey.

Read this article for a detailed guide on how to watch all the Champions League games, including the ones with Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. Then, on Thursday the Europa League returns to our TV screen with three more English teams and two Scottish teams looking to win the tournament.

How to watch PSG vs Real Madrid

Paris Saint-Germain play Real Madrid at the Parc des Princes Stadium in Paris, France, on Wednesday, 18 September. Kick-off is at 8pm and coverage is live on BT Sport 2 HD in the UK.

While a loss won’t be detrimental to any of the teams at this early stage of the tournament, all the teams will want to get their campaign off to a good start. That’s especially important for PSG and Real Madrid as both teams will start their Champions League campaign without some of their star players.

Strikers Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani are both injured for the hosts PSG, while Neymar, who scored a brilliant bicycle kick last week, is serving a three-game Champions League ban. This could mean that Mauro Icardi, the striker on a one-year loan from Inter Milan, could make his Champions League debut for the Ligue 1 Champions.

Meanwhile, for the Los Blancos, Luka Modric, Marcelo and Isco are injured, while Sergio Ramos and Nacho are suspended. Eden Hazard, who made his debut for the team over the weekend, may start as he gradually returns to full fitness following his summer transfer from Chelsea.

How to watch Atletico Madrid vs Juventus

Atletico plays Juventus at the former’s Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Wednesday, 18 September. Kick-off is at 8pm and coverage is live on BT ESPN in the UK. Frustratingly for fans, there are a few injuries in this game too, meaning we won’t get to see both teams at their full strength.

The home team might be without its star goalkeeper Jan Oblak who suffered a head injury. Antonio Adnan is on standby if he can’t play. Meanwhile, Alvaro Morata and Thomas Partey are expected to miss their side’s opening Champions League tie.

Maurizio Sarri will be taking charge of his first Champions League game for Juventus, but he will be without the services of Douglas Costa and Danilo, while summer signings Aaron Ramsay and Adrien Rabiot may also have to wait to make their debuts for the Old Lady.

Gonzalo Higuain is expected to partner Cristiano Ronaldo upfront, meaning Paolo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic will start on the bench. The game will also be Matthijs de Ligt’s first Champions League outing for Juventus after a successful season with Ajax last year.
