Can Liverpool FC win the Champions League again?

Not this year. A masterful performance from Atlético Madrid across two legs ended the Anfield Reds’ title defense. Of the remaining teams, Bayern Munich is a deserved favorite to go all the way. With results like the 10-3 aggregate thrashing of Tottenham Hotspur, there are few teams that can stop Robert Lewandowski and co. when the Bavarians click.

While Bayern are pretty much through already, keep an eye on Manchester City vs. Real Madrid. City hold a first-leg advantage and should be favorites to go through, but you wouldn’t bet against Zinedine Zidane‘s Los Blancos pulling off a second-leg comeback. Who wins?

Finally, be sure to tune in to Juventus vs. Lyon. Cristiano Ronaldo lives for the biggest games and is determined to deliver the fabled trophy to Turin. Can CR7 inspire Juve all the way?

  4. Hi,

    What’s the best way to watch Champions League games free? I’m interested in getting your service but don’t want to pay extra for games.

    1. Hi Will,

      BT Sport is showing some of the games without requiring a subscription. Other ways to watch include the free trials on Fubo TV and Sling TV. However, you will need to input valid U.S. credit card details to use the free trial.

  5. Hi,
    Living in Asia so all champion league games are around 3am – do you have re-play service in your program, that way I can watch with my morning coffee…

  6. I am Telling You, It’s Barcelona’s Year. Fear the MSN. Visca el barca 😉 We will make history again by at least retaining the CL if not winning the treble back-to-back. Game’s ON!
