Two of European football's most successful sides go head-to-head this evening in the pick of this week's Champions League fixtures. Six-times winners Bayern Munich began their latest push for European football's most coveted trophy with a win last week but there's pressure on boss Julian Nagelsmann coming into this big clash against Barca. 

The team sheets are in and Bayern have made six changes to their side from the weekend with Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, Marcel Sabitzer, Leroy Sane and Sadio Maneall recalled.

Former Chelsea man Marcos Alonso meanwhile starts for Barcelona, while Ronald Araujo partners another former Blue Andreas Christensen in the centre of defence.

Here's how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream from anywhere.

Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream

Date: Wednesday 13th September

Kick off: 8pm BST / 3pm ET

Location: Allianz Arena, Munich

Watch anywhere: ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

Free stream: Paramount+ free trial (US)

Bayern made a shock quarter-final exit at the hands of Villarreal in last year's tournament and have gone on to make an indifferent start to the Bundesliga this term after drawing three games in a row.

Despite plenty of financial drama off the pitch, Barcelona are meanwhile enjoying a strong start to the new season, with four wins out of five for Xavi's side leaving them nestled behind Real Madrid in second spot in La Liga. The Catalans also made an emphatic start to Champions League Group C last week with a 5-1 win over Viktoria Plzen at Camp Nou, and will rate their chances of getting a result on Tuesday in what's likely to be their toughest test in this year's group of death.

It's an 8pm BST kick-off at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday 13th September 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream for the 2022/23 Champions League, wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

3. Then head over to Paramount Plus on your browser or device and enjoy the Bayern Munich vs Barcelona live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
