The 2021-2022 UEFA Champions League gets underway with eight fixtures on Tuesday (14 September), followed by another eight on Wednesday (15 September). The top four Premier League teams from last season - Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool - will be opening their Champions League campaigns with slightly different squads that featured for them last year. The UEFA Champions League is the biggest club competition in European football history, and over the years, it has delivered everything the games produce.

If you are a football fan, you will agree with us that nothing is fascinating on a Champions League night than getting glued to your TV screen and watching every moment live.

How to watch the Champions League in South Africa: Use a good VPN service

If you're out of the country for any of the Champions League games, but don't want to miss out on the action, you can stream BT Sport or DAZN over a virtual private network, or VPN. A VPN conceals your location, making your device and apps think you're browsing from any country that you want. So, for example, you can log into BT Sport from the US and watch the game as if you were watching it on your PC at home. It's good practice to use a VPN because it protects all your browsing traffic from everyone, including your ISP. VPNs are especially useful if you travel often because public Wi-Fi networks can be easily breached.

ExpressVPN: This is our top-rated VPN because it's the fastest we've tested and one of the very few that have successfully completed an independent audit to prove that it doesn't log or store user data. You can use it on five devices at the same time and it's the only service we're confident will unblock BT Sport or DAZN regardless of where you are in the world. The service has a generous 30-days no-questions-asked moneyback guarantee. Even better, our readers get three months free when they choose the one-year plan, saving you a massive 49%.

NordVPN shares many features with ExpressVPN, including a strict no-logs policy, multiple simultaneous connections, 30-day moneyback guarantee, and a wide range of servers to let you watch the Champions League regardless of where in the world you are. Its desktop app has a nice map-based interface to let you instantly find the best servers based on what you want to watch. A single subscription also lets you use it on six devices simultaneously.

Champions League history: who won last year?

Thomas Tuchel transformed Chelsea from bewildering underachievers to Champions League winners in no time at all, the Blues from West London beating the heavily favoured Man City in the final.

Kai Havertz's cooly taken 42nd minute strike proved the difference but the 1-0 scoreline didn't reflect Chelsea's dominance, as City went down with a whimper on the stage they'd dreamed of, Pep Guardiola having selected a genuinely bizarre lineup.
