Two European giants will come crashing together for the 2020 Champions League Final - two clubs with star-packed squads, one who's lifted the trophy five times, the other looking to win their first. It's PSG vs Bayern Munich. Make sure you know how to watch the 2020 Champions League Final free live stream wherever you are. It’s going to be a cracker.
BT Sport is offering all UK viewers a 2020 Champions League Final free live stream through the BT Sport YouTube channel, the BT Sport website and BT Sport app. UK citizens away from home will need to sign up to a VPN to watch PSG vs Bayern Munich for free from abroad.
You simply couldn't ask for a bigger or better final. For Paris Saint-Germain, this is the promised land. For them, the Ligue 1 title is all but meaningless. Les Parisiens have won seven out of their last eight domestic league campaigns. This is a team built from the ground up instead to conquer Europe.
Ever since the Qatari take over in 2011, the club has sought the best talent from the continent to get itself to its first every UEFA Champions League Final. They got to the quarters four years in a row between 2013-2016 and, after a less than successful last three seasons in the competition, they have finally made it to the big one. Does this team of Mbappe, Neymar, Di Maria, Icardi, Draxler, Thiago Silva and more have the class and composure to take final step?
Thomas Tuchal has a task on his hands if he's to orchestrate a win over Bayern Munich, though. The Bavarians have been imperious this season with only Liverpool as competition for the very best team in the world right now.
Both domestically and in the Champions League, Bayern have dominated very opponent, beating very good Leipzig and Dortmund sides to the Bundesliga title and shattering greats like Barcelona on the continent. With blistering fast forwards, fearsome defenders and undoubtedly the deadliest striker in Europe right now, the stars have truly aligned for them this season - but such games do not always go the way that everyone expects. The usual front line of Muller, Lewandowski, Coman and Gnabry starts. Benjamin Pavard remains in the substitutes.
The 2020 Champions League Final of PSG vs Bayern Munich takes place at Benfica's Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. Kick-off is at 8pm BST on Sunday 23rd August. Read on to find out how you can watch a Champions League Final free live stream wherever you are in the world.
Watch the Champions League Final free live stream using a VPN
We'll look at the TV and live stream options for UK and USA-based fans below, but even if you have subscribed to the relevant services, you won't be able to use 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. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
