Chelsea vs Barcelona Live Stream: Watch the Champions League online this Wednesday
The Champions League knockout stages are now well underway and, with Manchester City and Liverpool already through to the quarter finals and Tottenham and Man Utd out of the competition, all eyes this Wednesday (March 14) fall on Camp Nou for the final round of 16 tie, where Chelsea take on Spanish heavyweights Barcelona. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Barcelona vs Chelsea online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.
Barcelona were lucky to come away from Stamford Bridge with a draw in the first leg, with the blues putting in a terrific performance in front of their home supporters. However, a late mistake allowed Lionel Messi to cancel out Willian’s opener, and the Blaugrana will be feeling confident about tonight’s game.
The Champions League has helped develop a fierce rivalry between these two clubs, and each side will be desperate to eliminate the other. Not that the occasion requires any extra spice.
A place in the last eight of this year’s Champions League is at stake, and both Chelsea and Barcelona have underperformed in the competition over recent years. Barcelona last won the trophy in 2015, which is by no means an age ago. However, their team boasts some of the best players in the world, and they’ve had to watch their arch-rivals Real Madrid lift the trophy in 2016 and 2017.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have only won the Champions League once, back in 2012. They aren’t among the favourites for this year’s competition, but we all know they’re capable of performing heroics at the Camp Nou. With the team struggling in the Premier League, Antonio Conte needs to make a huge statement elsewhere, and while they’re still in the FA Cup, Champions League glory is the number one priority.
Watching the big Barcelona vs Chelsea Champions League match couldn’t be easier – as long as you’ve got the right TV package.

Failing that, we fear you’re out of luck. UEFA won a recent injunction against illegal online football streams, meaning that UK ISPs will be required to crackdown on pirate Champions League feeds. We wouldn’t recommend going down this route anyway, as not only does it fall foul of the law, but it can open you up to all kinds of malware and other digital nasties.
