Two of the best teams in European football meet this week in a Champions League match. So if you're asking yourself how you can watch PSG versus Manchester United, you've got options. And we've got answers.

The Champions League pits teams from different European leagues against each other in a months-long competition. The first group stage matchdays began in October. The Round of 16 lands February and March, with the finals not scheduled until May 2021. (Meanwhile, all the teams will continue to play in their respective leagues, of course.)

That's what makes this so much fun, though. We get to see the teams play their regular games in their usual countries — and we get to see them play on the road in entirely different circumstances.

So — how to watch Man U and Paris Saint Germain? You've got options.

How to watch Man U vs. PSG from anywhere

If you've already got your usual method of watching Champions League games but aren't where you'd usually be when you watch them, a VPN might be just the ticket to put things back in order. That's a method by which you fire up a little app, route all your network traffic through that app and its servers so that you're effectively back in your home location, then watch the game all you want.

The only trick here is that you need to be able to trust your VPN provider, because all of your network traffic will be going through it. For that, we've long been fans of ExpressVPN.

ExpressVPN is one of the easiest and affordable ways to watch what you want from anywhere you want to watch it. Plus it'll help keep your network traffic away from any prying eyes on public networks.

And it's a great way to watch all all the Champions League games no matter where you're from —  and from anywhere in the world.View Deal
