In the UK

In the United Kingdom, Football Fans can tune into BT Sport, as it has detailed coverage of the UEFA Europa League in the United Kingdom. You can connect BT TV to your Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk TV packages for £10 – £25 a month, Sportingfree noted.

From outside the country

Scroll down for all the ways you can watch the Europa League online in a number of countries around the world. But first, you should know that if you're abroad at any point during the season, you probably won't be able to watch the footy like you normally would at home. This is because of geo-blocking, a digital restriction that means certain streaming services are only accessible in the region they're based in. Don't sweat it, though, as you've got the option of using a VPN to tune to your preferred coverage wherever you are.

U.S. Viewers

Fox Sports and ESPN are two subscription-based broadcasters licensed to stream. Fox Soccer 2Go is a great option if you have the cable subscription.

You can also get your UEFA Europa League coverage via many streaming services that include Fox Sports or ESPN in their plans, such as SlingTV, FuboTV, Hulu Live TV, PlayStation Vue, or YouTube Live TV.

The next three seasons will be broadcast by UniMas (free), Turner Sports, and UDN (both paid).

UK Viewers

The UK fans are in a better position since BT Sport and ITV2 air the matches for free while BT Sport also offers premium coverage. NOW TV has an ample choice of affordable daily and weekly passes, which is convenient if you don’t want to get locked into a contract.

Worldwide

Sport1 (free) and Sky Deutschland (paid) have the rights to broadcast the UEFA Europa League matches in Germany while beIN Sport (paid) and M6 (free) are licensed in France.

In Australia, your only option is the paid beIN Sports while in Canada it’s TSN, RDS (in French), and beIN Sports again. In China, check your PPTV, listed by Bestvpn.

How to watch Europa League football from outside your country

Scroll down for all the ways you can watch the Europa League online in a number of countries around the world. But first, you should know that if you're abroad at any point during the season, you probably won't be able to watch the footy like you normally would at home.

This is because of geo-blocking, a digital restriction that means certain streaming services are only accessible in the region they're based in. Don't sweat it, though, as you've got the option of using a VPN to tune to your preferred coverage wherever you are.

Use a VPN to live stream Europa League football from anywhere

ExpressVPN is the world's top VPN right now

We've taken the time to try out all the biggest VPN providers and we found ExpressVPN to be the best of the bunch. It works with lots of devices and offers super fast connections across its many servers.

Throw in its robust security features, and ExpressVPN is the best all-round VPN for streaming - and perhaps best of all, it has a 30-day money back guarantee plus 3 months FREE when you subscribe for a year.

Access ExpressVPN via your laptop, iPhone, tablet, Android phone, PlayStation, Xbox and plenty more. Express is a do-it-all service that also benefits from 24/7 customer support.

- Try ExpressVPN 100% risk-free for 30 days

Subscription channel BT Sport once again enjoys exclusive rights to 2020/21 Europa League football in the UK and will be showing every single match of the competition, either on TV or online, including this game.

It's being shown on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting at 5.15pm GMT ahead of an 5.55pm GMT kick-off.

BT Sport is available to BT TV customers from just £10 a month on contract, and can be added on by Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk subscribers as well.

However, if you don't want to be locked into a lengthy (and, when all's said and done) pricey contract, BT Sport also now offers the option of a Monthly Pass.

Plus, if you choose to snap up a VPN as described above, it means you'll be able to watch your preferred UK Champions League coverage from anywhere in the world.

How to watch live stream in the US

Paramount Plus costs $9.99 a month for the ad-free version, or $5.99 a month with ads, but if you sign up for Paramount Plus before the end of March, you'll be able to get a 1-month FREE Paramount Plus trial

You can watch live CBS content via your local affiliate if you have a full subscription. That includes the $9.99 deal, and the cheaper $5.99 subscription for now.

Watch Europa League soccer without cable

For cord-cutters, another option is FuboTV – which offers a FREE 7-day trial of its own. It carries CBS, as well as plenty of other local US and cable channels, including Fox, NBC and ESPN.

Priced from $64.99 a month for a more fully featured cable replacement service with over 100 channels. It's really easy to sign up for, accepting a wide range of credit and debit cards for online payment plus PayPal.

If you find yourself outside of America and want to watch the game using your normal streaming service, don't worry – a good VPN is all you need to tune in just like you would home.

Spanish language coverage is also available in the US via TUDN and Univision.

How to watch FREE live stream in Canada

For the 2020/21 season, live Europa League matches are being broadcast by ever-growing sports streaming service DAZN.

It's an absolute steal as DAZN costs just CA$20 a month or $150 a year - there's even a free DAZN trial deal currently running that will get you access for nothing! Not only do you get Europa League and Champions League soccer, but also every single NFL game for the forthcoming season, including NFL Game Pass and RedZone access - making DAZN a great option for the all-around sports fan.

It comes with support for iOS, Android, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, PS4, and laptop/PC streaming (including Mac devices).

How to watch in Australia

In Australia, Optus Sport is once again home to the Europa League soccer action this season, making it the place to head for this match.

Optus coverage can be streamed via mobile and tablet with the channel's app, while chord-cutters can also access the service on Fetch TV, Chromecast or Apple TV.

If you're outside Australia and want to tune in to Optus Sport, you can use one of our favourite VPNs above and watch from another nation.

How to watch live stream Europa League online in New Zealand

The official broadcaster for the Europa League in New Zealand is Sky Sport and the network will be broadcasting the biggest games from the 2020/21 competition throughout the competition, including this clash.

Anyone with Sky Sport as part of their pay TV package can use the BeIN Sport Connect app to stream coverage either online or via the app on most modern mobile devices, but the service isn't available on a standalone basis.

However, Sky Sport Now exists as an option for Kiwis who want access to Sky Sport channels on a contract-free basis.
