How to watch the Champions League in the UK?
Matchday one of the 2020/21 Champions League is underway this week, and we have previewed the biggest games taking place.
Chelsea vs Sevilla
Tuesday 20th October, 20:00, BT Sport 3
Both sides have enjoyed recent success in the Europa League, but have never met before. However, Chelsea have certainly had more success in the Champions League by consistently making the knockout rounds in the past 15 years and managing to even win it in 2012. They’ve spent big in the past year and will want to perform better than last season in which they finished fourth in the league and were thrashed by Bayern Munich in the round of 16. Sevilla also finished fourth but won another Europa League last season, and they are expecting to build on that by at least making the knockout rounds along with Chelsea.
Betting tip: 4-6 total goal bands at 19/10.
PSG vs Manchester United
Tuesday 20th October, 20:00, BT Sport 2
The two sides last met in the knockout stages of the 18/19 competition in which Manchester United snatched a late 1-3 away victory when overturning their home defeat.
PSG have since made the final of the Champions League while the Mancunians have struggled. As such, the French champions are favourites, and very few are predicting another victory for Man Utd at Le Parc des Princes.
Betting tip: PSG to win and both teams to score 6/4.
Ajax vs Liverpool
Wednesday 21st October, 20:00, BT Sport 2
Despite the pedigree of both teams, they have incredibly only played each other twice in their respective histories — which was an Ajax win in the knockout rounds of the 66/67 European Cup. Many Ajax stars from the 2018/19 Champions League run have left the club and although some old faces have returned — not much is expected of them.
Liverpool were knocked out of last season’s competition by Atletico Madrid in the previous (big) match with fans in the stadium. They coasted to the Premier League title, and the Reds will once more see the Champions League as a top-priority competition.
Betting tip: A draw at 14/5.
Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid
Wednesday 21st October, 20:00, BT Sport ESPN
Bayern and Atletico have met a few times recently. The first was the 2015/16 semi-finals in which the Spaniards edged out Bayern, and the following season both sides recorded 1-0 home wins in the group stages. Bayern are now the defending champions and the team to beat, and it will be interesting to watch how they cope with Atletico’s defensive playstyle.
Betting tip: Bayern Munich to win by one goal or draw at 1/1.
