Champions League preview

The Champions League draw has been made and the route to the 2023 final is now etched in something like stone. (Mud? Maybe.)

Real Madrid will play Chelsea in the quarter finals while Manchester City take on Julian Nagelsmann's Bayern Munich. A familiar foe might be just what the doctor ordered for five-goal hero Erling Haaland to blast the Sky Blue's on to their first ever Champions League trophy.

Should City be victorious, they'll play the winner of Milan and Napoli. Well, Napoli, surely, given their 20-point Serie A lead over their quarter-final opponents. For Chelsea, the prize would be a semi-final tie with either Inter or Benfica.

The first legs of the 2023 Champions League semi-finals take place on April 11/12. The second legs are the following week on April 18/19.

Every game kicks off at 8pm GMT / 3pm ET. Here's how to watch a Champions League live stream this season so you can catch every 2022/23 UCL fixture online from anywhere.

How to watch Champions League football from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Champions League football in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling, you probably won't be able to watch the UCL like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking - best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

A good streaming VPN can let you get around these digital borders, while also offering robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're also very easy to use.

When is the 2022/23 Champions League final?

The 2022/23 Champions League final has been scheduled for Saturday, 10th June 2023, and is set to be held at the spectacular Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.

Kick-off has been pencilled in for 10pm TRT, which is 8pm BST.

This will be the second Champions League final to be held at the 75,000-seater arena, after the legendary 2005 final that saw Liverpool come from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties, in a game that's gone down in football folklore as the "Miracle of Istanbul".

Who won the Champions League last year?

Real Madrid became the butt of all the jokes when they lost to Sheriff Tiraspol in one of their opening games of last season's tournament, but Carlo Ancelotti would get the last laugh.

They secured a record-extending 14th title (six European Cups, eight Champions Leagues) after the most improbable run through the knockouts that the competition has ever seen.

Their victories over PSG, Chelsea and Man City defied all logic, featuring late goals, controversial calls, and extraordinary strokes of fortune, and they went into the final against Liverpool as major underdogs. However, a second-half strike from Vinicius Junior secured a comfortable 1-0 victory over Jurgen Klopp's Reds.
