It's rare for Catalan giants Barcelona to come into a match as underdogs, but Lionel Messi and co are very much the less fancied team as they prepare to face the giants of German football. Read on to find out how to watch this crucial match between Barcelona vs Bayern Munich, no matter where in the world you are.

Bayern have looked imperious since football's restart, impressively brushing aside Frank Lampard's Chelsea in their last-16, second-leg clash last week - despite it being Bayern's first competitive game in over a month.

As well as having Polish goal machine Robert Lewandowski in arguably the best form of his storied career, the likes of Serge Gnabry and Alphonso Davies, are also firing on all cylinders for Hans-Dieter Flick's side.

Having let slip a lead in the Spanish Primera to lose out to Real Madrid, a first Champions League title in five years would make up for what has so far been a season to forget for Barcelona.

But with growing reports of strained relations between players and club hierarchy adding to their disappointing performances on the pitch, it may even be a task too big for the talismanic Messi to rouse his teammates and send the Blaugrana through to the last four here.
