How to stream the game from anywhere
If you aren’t sure if you can access BT Sport where you are, then the best way to get around your issues might be a VPN. That’s because access to normal coverage might be geo-blocked – that is, you are prevented from watching outside your home country, usually due to rights reasons.
VPNs encrypt and anonymise your data and enable you to appear as if you are watching from your home country, so they are useful for much more than entertainment.

Lyon vs Juventus match preview
Containing Juventus will be a huge task for Lyon tonight, with free scoring Cristiano Ronaldo racking up 19 goals since the start of December.
The French side won’t find comfort in their league form either. Lyon’s 2-0 away win over Metz on Friday ended a streak of four league games without a win. They currently sit in seventh in the league.
French striker, Moussa Dembele, may be the club’s one slither of hope this evening. The former Celtic forward is a stand-out talent in the squad and, in a recent statement, the club tried to brush off interest by saying he would not be sold.
Conversely, Juventus sit top of the Serie A, albeit only by one point. The Italian giants are heavy favourites going into tonight’s match but will need a good performance tonight to repeat their previous wins over Lyon.
On that score, things are once again weighted in Juve’s favour. They’ve won three of their last four meetings with the French side, drawing the other.
Lyon are hoping to upset the odds tonight but will have to do so without star man, Memphis Depay, who is out with a knee injury.
