Barcelona and Bayern Munich are the only two remaining clubs in the 2019-20 Champions League tournament club to have won. Coincidentally, the two five-time champions face off Friday.

Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich live stream: How to stream the UEFA Champions League
You can stream Champions League live on CBS All Access.
CBS All Access
If you want to stream Champions League live, you should have CBS All Access. (You may have noticed all the quarterfinal matches aren’t on CBS Sports Network, which will be an option for the semis and finals. It’s becoming an increasingly important streaming service for sports fans. But it’s also a great destination for fans of CBS shows, other ViacomCBS shows, and Paramount movies.
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.
Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich: Recent form, starting lineups, odds
Barcelona has one last chance to win a trophy in this elongated season, but the oddsmakers don’t think they’ll get past the Bayern hurdle. Barcelona hasn’t quite looked like an elite team since the soccer world restarted in June. Barca couldn’t get results down the stretch in ceding the La Liga title to Real Madrid. And yet, Lionel Messi has had a brilliant season; he may be uniquely qualified to carry Barca into a semifinal past a formidable opponent.
Bayern Munich has won every game but two in 2020, and has not dropped a single point since drawing with RB Leipzig back in February. The Bavarians won an eighth straight Bundesliga title anda record 20th DFB-Pokal. It demolished Chelsea in the previous round of the UCL 7-1 on aggregate. Striker Robert Lewandowski might have been a favorite for the Ballon d’Or this season if it had been given out, and Canadian sensation Alphonso Davies is in the midst of a breakout season. If they can’t shut down Barca, they certainly have the ability to outscore them.
According to BetMGM, as of August 14:
- Bayern Munich: -105 (bet $105 to win $100)
