Champions League preview
The UEFA Champions League sees the continent's best football clubs battle it out over eight-and-a-half months to decide who will be crowned the kings of Europe at Wembley next June.
A hard-fought group stage is now over, so we know who has clinched spots in the last 16. Manchester City came into this year's tournament as champions and were immediately favorites to repeat the feat. The likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona and 14-time champs Real Madrid look like the teams most likely to stop them.
Arsenal have been scoring goals for fun in the Premier League. They come up against a Porto side who have underwhelmed domestically this season. Wednesday's other game is Napoli vs Barcelona, with the Italian and Spanish champions colliding to try and turn their lacklustre seasons around.
Simone Inzaghi's Inter and Diego Simeone's Atletico clashed at the San Siro on Tuesday night, with Marko Arnautovic's late winner proving the difference between the sides in a tight knit encounter. The 1-1 draw that played out between PSV Eindhoven and Borussia Dortmund only goes to make predicting who of those sides will proceed to the quarter-final even tougher.
City and Real were the only two sides that managed 100% winning records throughout their six group games, and that continued through to the their first legs last week. Before Kylian Mbappé dropped the bombshell on PSG that he'll leave this summer, he scored the first goal on the way to a 2-0 win for the French side over Real Sociedad. But the surprise result of the round so far was Lazio overcoming Bayern Munich 1-0, and thus riffing further on the recent pain of Harry Kane and co. The second legs of all four ties will follow on March 5 and 6.
Make sure you're prepared for all the action – in this guide you'll discover all you need to know about how to watch Champions League live streams, including places that broadcast matches absolutely FREE! We also have details of upcoming fixtures, groups and next year's final.

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 2023/24 Champions League final?
Wembley Stadium in London will host this season's UEFA Champions League final.
The 2023/24 Champions League final will take place on Saturday, June 1 2024.
The last time England's national stadium was last used for the UCL final was for an all-German affair when Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the 2012/13 tournament.
Predictions: Who will win the 2023/24 Champions League?
Winning back-to-back titles is far from easy – in fact, only Real Madrid have taken home consecutive trophies since the competition changed name from the European Cup in 1992. But Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will be shooting to do exactly that this season after their 1-0 win in last year's final against Inter, and they're heavily tipped to succeed.
The hottest competition will come from the usual suspects. Champions of their respective domestic leagues, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Napoli will be expecting to go deep. And when it comes to the Champions League, you'd be a fool to bet against 14-time champs Real Madrid.
The likes of Arsenal, Inter Milan and PSG were also among the bookies favorites at the outset of the tournament, with Real Sociedad, Porto and RB Leipzig the outsiders currently most fancied to cause an upset.
Who won the Champions League last year?
After 15 years and over a billion pounds, the grand Manchester City plan finally came to fruition.
City didn't lose a single game on their way to the final at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul last June, easing their way to convincing wins over RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the knockout stages. The awesome Erling Haaland top scored with 12 goals for the free-scoring Citizens.
Pep Guardiola's men had a tougher time in the final against stubborn Inter Milan, but a second-half goal from Rodri was enough to secure victory and the treble.
