The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 sees what is likely to prove one of the best matchups in the entire competition, when last year’s finalists Liverpool FC face the defending German champions Bayern Munich — with both teams already boasting five European cups in their trophy cases, as DW.com notes. But only one team will emerge from the two-legged tie with a chance at a sixth title in the first head-to-head meeting of the iconic clubs since 2001. The first leg of the elimination clash will live stream from Anfield on Tuesday.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the Liverpool FC vs. Bayern Munich UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first-leg showdown, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time at the iconic, 54,000-seat Anfield football ground, in Liverpool, England, on Tuesday, February 19.
Fans in Germany and throughout Central Europe can catch the kickoff at 9 p.m. Central European Time. Back in the United States, the game gets underway at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, noon Pacific. In India, the Reds vs. Die Roten (which also means “The Reds”) match kicks off at 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, February 20.
Something has got to give in the showdown, with Liverpool having been indomitable on their home ground in European matches, with 14 wins in their last 19 matches at Anfield without a defeat, according to the BBC. At the same time, Bayern Munich has recently established itself one of the top road teams in European competition, winning six of their last eight away with no losses. In addition, Bayern have reached at least the semifinals in seven of the nine most recent Champions League tournaments.
Liverpool’s German Manager Jurgen Klopp has a lengthy and fraught history with Bayern Munich. In seven seasons at the helm of Bayern’s chief Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund, Klopp guided his team to two titles — but lost out to Bayern in all but one of his other seasons in Dortmund. In fact, Bayern nearly hired Klopp 11 years ago, according to the Independent newspaper. But instead the Bavarian icons opted to hire German legend Jurgen Klinsmann as manager — only to fire Klinsmann after only nine months.
