Manchester United – FC Barcelona live on TV

Manchester United – FC Barcelona live on TV

  • The Red Devils host Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League quarter finals
  • Kick-off is on Wednesday 10th April at 8pm (GMT) / 9pm (CET)
  • First meeting in the knockout stages since 11 years
  • Broadcasters: BT Sport 2 (UK), Sky (Germany), RMC Sport 2 (France)

 

Barca face United in the last eight of the competition in April

FC Barcelona travel to Old Trafford for their quarter-final first leg on April 10 before Manchester United go to the Nou Camp on April 16. Obviously Barca will be favourites, thanks to Lionel Messi and the fact that they’re having a far more sensible season.

United’s interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will return to the scene of one of his most famous nights, probably the scene of his greatest night as a Manchester United player, almost 20 years on from his heroics in the 1999 final at the very same venue against Bayern Munich. The Norwegian will conjure up the kind of performance which allows Manchester United - who are only fifth favourites for this competition at the moment - to overcome a Barcelona side who ironically are chasing a treble in La Liga, the Copa Del Rey and the Champions League.

Did you knew? The winner of the United-Barca duel will face Liverpool or Porto in the Champions League semi-finals.

 

Suarez expected to return from injury in time

Luis Suarez should be fit to take part in Barcelona’s Champions League quarter-final tie against Manchester United despite injuring his ankle at Barca’s 4-1 defeat of Real Betis.

Solskjaer recently suggested he hoped that Alexis Sanchez could return to action around the time of the Everton game in the Premier League, but the trip to Spain comes earlier that week, with the second leg taking place at the Nou Camp on Tuesday 16 April.

Formula 1 (F1) - Free Satellite TV Channels

Formula 1 (F1) - Free Satellite TV Channels

F1 2019 is just around the corner, but what can we expect from the new season as Lewis Hamilton searches for his sixth world title? Formula One (F1) is the highest class of single-seat auto racing that is sanctioned by (FIA). The FIA Formula One World Championship has been the premier form of racing since the inaugural season in 1950.

Formula 1 had a total global television audience of 490 million people during the course of the 2018 season, what is a global growth of 39% compared to 2017.

Despite a huge move of Formula TV rights on pay-TV, there are a lot of FTA (free-to-air) satellite broadcasters having Formula 1 live TV rights or even highlights.

 

Vettel vs Hamilton or Verstappen vs Leclerc

Lewis Hamilton will be favourite for the Formula One world title again this season. Despite Ferrari producing much more competitive F1 cars in the past two years, Sebastian Vettel suffered two heavy defeats against Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' championship, while the Scuderia has not succeeded in ending Mercedes' streak of constructors' titles.

Yet Vettel's Ferrari team have emerged from Formula One's winter hibernation boasting the fastest car. Charles Leclerc will partner Vettel at Ferrari this year and is fancied to put the heat on his teammate. Leclerc says he has not set any “particular target” for his race debut with the team at the Australian Grand Prix. The 21-year-old Monegasque has moved to partner Sebastian Vettel in Ferrari’s revised driver line-up for the upcoming campaign after his impressive rookie season with Sauber in 2018. Vettel should be kept on his toes by Leclerc but is expected to restore his reputation while Max Verstappen will have his hands full with Pierre Gasly at Red Bull.

 

Formula One UK TV rights

Sky Sports F1 have the lion’s share of live coverage in the Formula 1 2019 season after the broadcaster signed an exclusive deal to F1’s live TV rights in the UK. Channel 4 (DVB-T Free in UK, DVB-S FTA on Astra 28.2°E) will showing highlights of all the Qualifying and Formula 1 races this year, along with the British GP at Silverstone in full. NOW TV has just released a special F1 Season Ticket that gives you access to all nine months of the F1 season for a reduced overall price. The F1 Season Ticket for NOW TV will cost you a single £195 payment for the entire season.

 

F1 remains on free-to-air TV in Germany

German broadcaster RTL will have the exclusive free-to-air rights to cover Formula 1 Grands Prix from 2018 to 2020. The agreement includes the coverage of the three free practice sessions on Fridays and Saturdays, qualifying sessions on Saturday afternoons and races on Sundays.

RTL has covered Formula 1 live in Germany since the middle of the 1991 season. RTL Germany is available via different satellites, but it is only free-to-air via Astra 19.2° satellite position.

After a one-year break, pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland will show the Formula 1 again in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The new agreement covers the 2019 and 2020 seasons across all race weekends. Customers with the Sky Q box can watch all races live in Ultra HD on Sky Sport UHD. The rights package includes the live broadcasting rights via satellite, cable, IPTV, streaming and mobile TV in Germany and Austria as well as the German-language rights in Switzerland.

Liverpool - Bayern live on TV

Bayern – Liverpool live on TV

  • The Bavarians host Liverpool in the second leg of the Champions League round of last 16
  • Kick-off is on Wednesday 13th March at 8pm (GMT) / 9pm (CET)
  • Robben could be healthy in time - Liverpool are planning with Lovren and van Dijk
  • Broadcasters: BT Sport 2 (UK), Sky (Germany), RMC Sport 2 (France)

After a 0:0 draw in the first leg the Reds will travel to Munich’s Allianz Arena on Wednesday for another titanic battle between two of Europe’s best sides for a place in the quarter-finals. Liverpool are back on top of the Premier League, a point ahead of Manchester City, while Bayern are now just three points off title rivals Borussia Dortmund. So let us give you the most important news straight away, including injury updates and TV and live stream info.

 

Bayern Munich battle for draw in Liverpool

Niko Kovac said before the game that the first leg wouldn't end goalless, but that's exactly what happened at a wet Anfield three weeks ago. Liverpool, with Virgil Van Dijk suspended and Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez both injured, began to dominate midfield possession, led once again by the excellent Henderson, without carving out a real chance against a well-organized Bayern defence.

Jürgen Klopp may not have looked happy after the game, but the coach insists he is "absolutely OK" with Tuesday's goalless draw, even if he has come to expect better from his team. Klopp was visibly angered when he spoke to Kovac after the final whistle. The Liverpool boss gestured after shaking hands with Kovac, who pulled the German's arm to remonstrate with him on the touchline before the Liverpool coach went on the field to speak to his players. Klopp: "That was funny. We were on English soil. In Germany it is normal when games end, you shake hands with your players. In England, first the coaches shake hands so I did what I did in Germany, said sorry and made up for it and, in Germany, we will do it as we do it in Germany."

 

Robben returns to Bayern first team training

Arjen Robben has lately been struggling with a recurring thigh injury that has kept him out since November. There was even a genuine concern that he might not play for Bayern again this season. Robben’s availability for Bayern could give Kovac some interesting options for the clash with Liverpool.

Virgil van Dijk was suspended for the first leg match having been booked in Liverpool’s final group stage match. The Dutchman, who became the world’s most expensive defender when moving to Anfield in 2018, is ‘the best centre-back in the world’, according to Liverpool team-mate Andy Robertson. Van Dijk is set to retain his place at the heart of Liverpool’s defence.

 

Where and how to watch Bayern – Liverpool live on TV oder via live stream

The second leg is being shown in the United Kingdom on BT Sport 2 with coverage starting at 7pm. Fans in Germany can watch the match live via Sky Sport and SkyGo. Streaming service DAZN will be permitted to show highlights from FC Bayern vs. Liverpool on their platform at 11.30pm (CET). RMC Sport 2 will air Bayern – Liverpool in France live/en direct.
