UEFA Champions League 2022/23 live free: Is this the year Pep Guardiola finally leads Manchester City to their first Champions League title? Is this the last dance for Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar on the European stage for PSG? Can Real Madrid simply will their way to a 15th title on a diet of self-mythologizing, football heritage, and Karim Benzema? There’s nothing else quite like it, so follow our guide for the best ways to watch a Champions League live stream and see every 2022/23 UCL fixture online wherever you are in the world.
Whatever misgivings you may have over UEFA and the Super League clique, few would deny that the Champions League is the highest format of the game, and in recent seasons it’s taken on a new ultra-chaotic dimension, best embodied by Real Madrid’s extraordinary run to the title last May.
This season’s tournament has already taken on added significance for some European giants, such as Liverpool, who started the domestic season badly, Juventus, who are facing a potential six-way title tussle at home, and Barcelona, whose entire existence now depends on winning major trophies.
The Champions League draw hasn’t been kind to Barca though. They share the Group of Death with Robert Lewandoski’s former team Bayern Munich, as well as Inter Milan and poor old Viktoria Plzeň.
Nothing says midweek drama like European football under the floodlights. Here’s how to watch a Champions League live stream this season and catch every 2022/23 UCL fixture online from anywhere.

When is the 2022/23 Champions League final?
The 2022/23 Champions League final has been scheduled for Saturday, 10th June 2023, and will be held at the spectacular Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.
Kick-off has been pencilled in for 10pm TRT, which is 8pm BST.
This will be the second Champions League final to be held at the 75,000-seater arena, after the legendary 2005 final that saw Liverpool come from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties, in a game that’s gone down in football folklore as the “Miracle of Istanbul”.
Who won the Champions League last year?
Real Madrid became the butt of all the jokes when they lost to Sheriff Tiraspol in one of their opening games of last season’s tournament, but it would be Carlo Ancelotti who would get the last laugh.
They secured a record-extending 14th title (six European Cups, eight Champions Leagues) after the most improbable run through the knockouts that the competition has ever seen.
Their victories over PSG, Chelsea and Man City defied all logic, featuring late goals, controversial calls, and extraordinary strokes of fortune, and they went into the final against Liverpool as major underdogs. However, a second-half strike from Vinícius Júnior secured a comfortable 1-0 victory over Jürgen Klopp’s Reds.
