It's win or bust for Rangers this evening as they travel to Anfield for a Battle of Britain clash against Liverpool in this intriguing Champions League Group A tie. The match somewhat surprisingly marks the first European meeting between these two British footballing giants, with both teams in need of a big result. 

The team sheets are in and Liverpool have made three changes from the side that started against Brighton at the weekend, with Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz, replacing Bobby Firmino, Fabio Carvalho and Fabinho.

Rangers have meanwhile made some fairly significant changes to their line up from Saturday's victory at Hearts, with teenager Leon King coming into a defensive back three and Alfredo Morelos starting ahead of top scorer Antonio Colak.

Read on to find out how to watch a Liverpool vs Rangers live stream and catch the Champions League online, no matter where you are in the world.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds enjoyed a last-gasp 2-1 win over Ajax at Anfield thanks to a Joel Matip strike in their last Champions League outing - a much needed win following their humiliating 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Napoli in their opening group stage match. The Reds looked decidedly less assured at the weekend having been held to an entertaining 3-3 draw with Brighton at home.

Rangers boss Giovanni van Bronckhorst meanwhile knows that a defeat here will end any hope of making it past the group phase. Heavy back-to back losses to Ajax and Napoli have left them pointless at the bottom of the table.

The Scottish side will nevertheless have been buoyed by an impressive 4-0 win away at Hearts on Saturday, with goals from Alfredo Morelos and former Liverpool academy star Ryan Kent. Follow our guide to get a Liverpool vs Rangers live stream and watch the Champions League online from anywhere.

We've set out how you can live stream Liverpool vs Rangers in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to watch Champions League football 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 really easy to use.
