How to watch Champions League in the USA: Full TV schedule for 2021 on CBS channels, live streams

The 2020-21 Champions League, greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, is finally in the knockout stage, with the first leg of the Round of 16 already completed. 

Even with the global pandemic still looming over the world’s greatest professional club competition, the idea of securing the status of Europe’s top club promises an exciting stage. How those matches are affected by reduced audiences or empty stadiums, however, remains to be seen.

All second leg matches are also available on Spanish language networks, TUDN and Galavision, which can also be streamed on fuboTV.

The Champions League quarterfinals can only be streamed on Paramount+. The semifinal matches will air on CBSSN and stream on Paramount+.

The Champions League final will air on CBS and stream on Paramount+; fuboTV is also a streaming option for each of the semifinal and final matches.

Back a John Stones shot and two Ollie Watkins offsides at 4/1 – Jones Knows

Jones Knows shares his excitement about some monster betting returns on the horizon and recommends a shot and offside inspired 4/1 double for this Saturday

We are approaching the final few fences of our race trying to bash the bookmakers and after pinging every fence earlier in the season, our jumping has gone to pot since the turn of the year. If we were a Grand National horse, the jockey would be considering pulling us up.

On Christmas Day there was +26 points of profit in our satchels but winners have gone array since, a common theme with the prices I play at, but to be now sitting -5 for the season is a little more dramatic than I had envisaged.

Hope does spring eternal though with some exciting long-term plays that are warming my punting cockles.

I can’t wait for the squad announcement as my obsession with every Ward-Prowse touch of the ball in a match has taken over a big chunk of my life. If Gareth Southgate does pick the midfielder, it’s party time this summer. I might be the only England fan in the pub though with ‘Ward-Prowse 23’ on my back though.

Sergio Aguero: Pep Guardiola would be happy to see striker face Man City next season

Sergio Aguero has yet to reveal his next move when he leaves Manchester City at the end of the season; Pep Guardiola says he would have no problem with the Argentine striker joining a Premier League rival

The Argentine has been linked with Barcelona and a return to former club Atletico Madrid, while in the past he has spoken of ending his career at boyhood club Independiente

It is not inconceivable, however, that a Premier League rival could show interest in signing him on what would be a free transfer.

That prospect would be difficult for some City fans to stomach but manager Guardiola insists he would not have a problem with it.

Spanish football expert Alvaro Montero discusses the key talking points ahead of this weekend’s Clasico; Follow Real Madrid vs Barcelona with our dedicated live blog across Sky Sports’ digital platforms on Saturday from 6.30pm; Kick-off 8pm.

Atletico Madrid have seen their lead at the top of La Liga eaten away by Real Madrid and Barcelona, and Spanish football expert Alvaro Montero believes this weekend’s Clasico will go a long way to deciding the Spanish title race.

While Manchester City are cantering to a third Premier League title in four years, Bayern Munich are in pole position for a ninth successive Bundesliga win and Inter Milan are edging closer to a first Serie A crown since 2010… Hay Liga!

Atletico’s loss away to Sevilla last weekend has blown the Spanish title race wide open. For the first time in more than three months, Barcelona depend on their own results to be crowned La Liga champions. They travel to the Spanish capital unbeaten in 19 league games; win their remaining nine fixtures and they will finish top for the first time in two years.

David Prutton’s Sky Bet Championship predictions

On the new episode of the Prutton’s Predictions show, David Prutton and Sky Sports’ Simeon Gholam look ahead to all of the weekend’s games; check out the stats and hear from Championship fans before Prutton reveals who he is tipping in gameweek 41

Millwall are ticking along very nicely with three wins on the bounce. They may have left it a little too late to get into the play-offs, but they are clearly still highly motivated as the season draws to a close. Gary Rowett and his players deserve huge credit for that.

It is all going wrong for Swansea. Four defeats in a row without scoring, and they need to make sure they keep themselves honest in this pursuit of a play-off place. I fancy them to get back amongst the goals, but think it could well be a fifth defeat in a row.

Race for the Premier League: How Norwich can be promoted this weekend

Millwall vs Swansea live on Sky Sports Football on Saturday lunchtime; Norwich will be promoted to the Premier League if they beat Derby and Brentford and Swansea fail to win

Leaders Norwich currently boast a healthy five-point advantage over second-placed Watford, with the play-off spots occupied by Brentford, Swansea, Barnsley and Reading. Bournemouth are just one point outside the top six, while Cardiff, Millwall and Middlesbrough retain very slim hopes.

The Canaries could, in fact, be the first team to book their place in next season’s Premier League this weekend. Should they beat Derby at Pride Park on Saturday and both Brentford and Swansea fail to win their respective fixtures against Preston and Millwall, Daniel Farke’s men will secure automatic promotion with five games to spare.
