Champions League glory is on the line tonight as French giants Paris Saint-Germain take on RB Leipzig at the Estádio da Luz. Read on to find out how to watch this crucial match between RB Leipzig vs PSG, no matter where in the world you are.

The rejigged format of this Coronavirus-delayed tournament means tonight's match is a one-off game played at the neutral venue of Benfica's Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, with the spoils for the winner a Champions League final clash against Lyon or Bayern Munich.

Both sides hoping to progress to their first-ever Champions League final with a victory tonight, though PSG go into the match as favorites. The French side won a domestic treble this season with Ligue 1, Coupe de France, and Coupe de la Ligue trophies.

The Parisians saw off Atalanta in their quarter-final bout with two late goals from Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting needed in order to progress to this stage. There's no doubt that PSG have been a force in France this season, but the Champions League is the competition they will covet the most, especially when considering the talent at the club and the amount of money invested by the owners.

RB Leipzig have experienced a meteoric rise since the club was founded in 2009. The Red Bulls only entered the German top-flight in 2016 and finished in third place in the 2019/20 campaign. Having seen off the Premier League's Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 in the last-16 stage and bypassing La Liga's Atletico Madrid in their quarter-final tie, they will be no pushover.
