This is one is for all the marbles. After playing to a 1-1 draw in a drenched semifinal first-leg match a week ago, Real Madrid heads to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea once more to determine which of the two teams plays in this year's Champions League final.

(Manchester City on Tuesday advanced to the final after a 2-0 drubbing of Paris Saint-Germain in their second-leg semifinal match.)

A lot has changed since the first leg just a week ago, however. The brouhaha over the European Super League has both died down with the proposed league all but dead, and flared up with the riots at Old Old Trafford on May 2 that led to the Manchester United-Liverpool Premier League game being postponed. While none of that directly affects this game, it still looms in the background because the Superleague would have directly affected UEFA and the Champions League itself.

But maybe folks can put that aside for 90 minutes. 

Here's how to watch the second-leg match between Chelsea and Real Madrid: 

How to watch Real Madrid vs. Chelsea in the United States

All the Champions League matches can be watched in the United States on Paramount Plus. (That's the streaming service formerly known as CBS All Access.)

In addition to live sports like the Champions League, NWSL and NFL football, Paramount+ also is home to the greater ViacomCBS catalog. That means all things Star Trek. It means the ever-expanding Yellowstone universe. And it means a world of other original content that you'll not find anywhere else.

The Paramount+ price lands at $5.99 a month or $59.99 a year if you don't mind advertising with the on-demand side of things. Or you can pay $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year and get rid of most advertising. In June 2021, that $5.99 option will be replaced by a $4.99 plan that drops online access to your local CBS affiliate.

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.
