A rejuvenated Barcelona host Turkish giants Galatasaray in the last 16 of the Europa League this evening, with the teams meeting for the first time in 20 years. Back then, Barca's head coach Xavi was a fresh-faced youngster on the cusp of the first team. Make sure you know how to watch a Barcelona vs Galatasaray live stream from anywhere in the world tonight.
The team news is in, and Barca have raised a few eyebrows with their starting XI. Gerard Pique, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sergio Busquets make way for Nico González, Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia, who has had plenty of critics. Iñaki Peña starts between the sticks against his parent club, while star man Sofiane Feghouli takes the captain's armband. New signing Bafetimbi Gomis starts on the bench.
In the US soccer fans can stream Barcelona vs Galatasaray free on Paramount+ with this 7-day free trial. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're based in the US but currently stuck outside the States. UK fans can get a BT Sport Monthly Pass.
Whisper it, but at long last Barcelona seem to have a good thing going. The arrivals of Adama Traore and Aubameyang have supercharged their attacking play, though the latter is being rested tonight. They scored four delightful goals to breeze past fellow heavyweights Napoli in the knockout round play-offs and establish themselves as favourites for the trophy, though they remain highly suspect at the back.
Galatasaray’s terrific Europa League form has been the sole highlight of an otherwise miserable season. Winning the cup would be the Istanbul club's only chance of continental football next season. Gala, and Feghouli in particular, were terrific as they eclipsed Lazio and Marseille in the group stage, and new coach Domènec Torrent has intimate knowledge of the Barcelona way, having been Pep Guardiola’s assistant for many a year.
It's an 8pm GMT kick-off at Camp Nou on Thursday 10th March 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Barcelona vs Galatasaray live stream wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Barcelona vs Galatasaray live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you've subscribed to the relevant Barcelona vs Galatasaray live stream service, you won't be able to access coverage from outside your own country. The service provider will know your location based on your IP address, and 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.
Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you'll be surprised how simple it is.
How to use a VPN
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the UEFA Europa League, you may wish to choose 'USA' for Paramount +.
3. Then head over to Paramount+ on your browser or device and enjoy the Barcelona vs Galatasaray 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. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.
