The modified UEFA Champions League tournament resumes on August 12th, with all four quarterfinals played as a one-game knockout in Lisbon. Barcelona and Bayern Munich are the only two remaining clubs to have won a European Cup, each with five to their name. Coincidentally, the two face off in the quarterfinal stage on August 14th.
The Round of 16 saw three just-crowned domestic league champions exit: 2018-19 Champions League and 2019-20 Premier League champs Liverpool, perennial Serie A winners Juventus, and La Liga victors Real Madrid.
Atlético Madrid has had two runs to the UCL Final this past decade, and it’s set up well to make it a third. After knocking out holders and Premier League winners Liverpool at Anfield, Atlético is on the same side of the bracket as the three other teams who also have never won this competition.
RB Leipzig is no easy opponent though, although the German side will be without superstar Timo Werner, who is already moving on to his next club: Chelsea.
The winner will face a PSG side with a history of premature Champions League exits—and it needed two late goals to vanquish Atalanta.
Here’s how to catch the Atlético Madrid vs. RB Leipzig live stream.
RB Leipzig vs. Atlético Madrid live stream: How to stream UEFA Champions League
The 2020 UEFA Champions League is streaming live on CBS All Access.
CBS All Access
Paramount+ is the network’s official entry into the streaming arena, and set the tone for other major networks launching their own streaming services. (Looking at you, Peacock.) CBS All Access anchors itself in the vast CBS show library, going into TV history as well as relying on the Star Trek series and the crime dramas that help define it today. It also has a selection of movies tied to Paramount’s ownership by CBS parent Viacom. It’s also a destination for live events like the annual Grammy Awards, and it’s becoming a destination for live sports fans. The 2020 NWSL Challenge Cup and a new role as Champions League soccer host makes it a legitimate player in sports programming.
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. FuboTV starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The ESPN suite of channels was added as part of an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN.
AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.
At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. Considering that AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Xtra and Ultimate tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package, you can find whatever sports channel you’re seeking in at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans. If you’re looking for TUDN, you can get in at either the Optimo Mas or Ultimate tiers to stream it.
Atlético Madrid vs. RB Leipzig: Preview, odds, starting lineups
Atlético Madrid is riding high after its elimination of Liverpool in the Round of 16. Not much has changed with the squad since February, apart from Álvaro Morata’s move from Chelsea being made permanent. The remaining teams in the tournament make this season as good a chance as any for Diego Simeone to bring a UCL trophy back to the Wanda Metropolitano. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak is one of the best in the world, and Brazilian-turned-Spanish striker Diego Costa is mercurial and a blast to watch (unless your team’s playing against him).
RB Leipzig has arrived at the place the club dreamed of being when it was founded in 2009, when the global Red Bull soccer network made its controversial move into German soccer. Leipzig has been a consistent top four finisher since arriving in the Bundesliga four seasons ago, and now finds itself in the quarterfinals alongside five other teams without a European Cup. Atlético Madrid may have the experience in this matchup, but Leipzig definitely has the talent to make a run to the final in this shortened Champions League format. If you need an American reason to root for Leipzig, USMNT star Tyler Adams is a key player for the squad.
