Juventus vs Barcelona live stream: How to watch Champions League fixture online and on TV tonight


The big Champions League clash on Wednesday night sees Juventus host Barcelona in Group G.

Both teams made a winning start to their European campaigns last time out and are the clear favourites to progress to the knock-out phase.

But both sides also suffered demoralising results at the weekend, as Juve were held at home by Hellas Verona and Barca lost El Clasico at home, 3-1 to Real Madrid.

Andrea Pirlo and Ronald Koeman were both appointed head coaches this summer at the two clubs.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of kick-off.

When is the game?

The match is set to kick-off at 8pm GMT on Wedneday, 28 October at the Allianz Stadium.

Where can I watch it?

The game will be shown live on BT Sport 3. Subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app or website.

What is the team news?

Three Juventus defenders will miss the match, with Giorgio Chiellini and Alex Sandro both extremely unlikely to play and Matthijs de Ligt still recovering from surgery.

Weston McKennie is available after testing positive for Covid-19 last week and having now recovered, but Cristiano Ronaldo will not be able to play for the same reason, as it stands. Arthur could start again in midfield against the team he left this summer.

Barcelona are without Philippe Coutinho, who  has a hamstring strain, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who has yet to play this term. Gerard Pique is also suspended. Koeman must choose between Sergi Roberto and Serginio Dest at right-back, while Antoine Griezmann will hope for a recall. Miralem Pjanic left Juve for Barca in the swap deal with Arthur, but might not start here.

Predicted line-ups

JUV: Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Demiral, Cuadrado; Rabiot, Arthur, Ramsey; Kulusevksi, Morata, Chiesa.

FCB: Neto; Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba; De Jong, Busquets; Griezmann, Pedri, Fati; Messi

Odds

Juventus – 24/13

Draw – 5/2
