One spot in the Champions League final will be decided on May 4 as Manchester City plays host to Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their semifinal round. Man City enters the game with a one-goal advantage after winning the first leg 2-1 in Paris last week.

That means PSG needs to win this match by at least two goals to head to the May 29 final in Istanbul. If the score is any less than that, tiebreakers will go into effect, leading to extra time or, worse, a penalty shootout.

This semifinal second leg kicks off with coverage at 2 p.m. Eastern (that's 11 a.m. Pacific) on Tuesday, May 4. 

(On the other side, Real Madrid hosted Chelsea in the first leg of the other side of the bracket for a 1-1 draw. Those two teams play again on May 5.) 

How, then, can you watch PSG and Man City in this second-leg match? It's fairly easy, in fact.

How to watch Manchester City vs. Paris Saint-Germain in the United States

If you're in the United States, there's one way to watch the Champions League. And that is on Paramount+. (OK, there are two ways — you also can catch it on TUDN if you want things in Spanish.)

The streaming service formerly known as CBS All Access has the exclusive to Champions League games in the U.S., and that's fine — because it's also done an excellent job in streaming them. Paramount Plus has a plethora of live sports. That includes the Europa League, the National Women's Soccer League in the U.S. — and it'll carry regional NFL games, too.

In addition to live sports, Paramount Plus is home to all kinds of new original shows, as well as some of the best movies from the greater ViacomCBS world. It's where you'll find the ever-expanding Yellowstone universe. It's where you'll find all things Star Trek. It's where you'll find some of the best series on TV.

And you can have all that for $5.99 a month, or $59.99 a year, provided that you don't mind seeing ads on the on-demand content. If you want to get rid of the advertising, it'll cost you $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year. In June 2021, that $5.99 option will drop to $4.99 a month — but it also will lose streaming access to your local CBS affiliate.

Paramount+ is available on every major streaming platform. That means you can watch Paramount Plus on Roku. You can watch Paramount+ on Amazon Fire TV. You can watch it on Android TV and Google TV and Apple TV — everywhere, really, including in a web browser.

The remaining semifinal games also will be available on CBS Sports Network, which is available on most major streaming services in the United States.

Serious sports fans will want to check out FuboTV, which while being the smallest live streaming TV service in the United States has a channel slate that competes with the best of them. It's got ESPN as well as CBSSN, plus other major sports networks like FS1 and FS2. 

FuboTV starts at $65 a month, same as Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV, which are the top two services in the U.S.

But FuboTV also has a number of premium sports add-ons that you simply can't find anywhere else.

How to watch Man City vs PSG in the UK
