What channel is Barcelona vs. PSG on today? Time, TV schedule to watch Champions League match in USA
The start of the Champions League features an intriguing matchup between La Liga’s Barcelona and Ligue 1’s Paris Saint-Germain.
Both teams feature among the best strikers in the sport: Lionel Messi is second in La Liga with 15 goals this season, while PSG’s Kylian Mbappe ranks first in Ligue 1 with 16. Whoever performs better on Tuesday could set their club up for success in the first leg of the Round of 16.

In that sense, Barcelona may be playing the best it has all season, taking a seven-game La Liga win streak into its match vs. PSG; it has also won three of its last four games in the Copa Del Rey, though it did lose its last match to Sevilla on Wednesday.PSG is playing inspired recently as well, taking a three-game Ligue 1 win streak into its match vs. Barcelona, as well as wins in the Coupe de France and Trophee des Champions.Here’s everything you need to know about the opening match of the Champions League, including time, TV channel, streaming info and more:MORE: Watch Barcelona vs. PSG live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)What channel is Barcelona vs. PSG on today?Cable subscribers can watch Barcelona vs. PSG on CBS Sports Network or on the streaming service CBS All Access (which will soon rebrand as Paramount+).
