Pick a streaming option below soon, because the match kicks off at 4:00 p.m. ET. In the United States, you can watch on Paramount+ (English broadcast), Univision (Spanish) or TUDN (Spanish). You can also watch a free live stream a variety of different ways. Here’s how.

Is There a Free Barcelona vs Napoli Live Stream?

Whether you only want to watch this game, or you want to watch every Champions League match from here through the final, Paramount+ is by far the best choice. It includes every match of the competition in both English and Spanish–as well as a ton of other live sports, movies and TV shows–for just $6 per month, plus you can watch for free for the first seven days after signing up.

If you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber–you can get Prime for free for 30 days–you can watch Paramount+ through Amazon Prime Channels. It includes all the same content as the regular Paramount+ at the same long-term price, and it also comes with a seven-day free trial. The only difference is you’ll watch the match on the Amazon website or Prime Video app.

You can also get access to the Paramount+ website or app if you include the “Paramount+ with SHOWTIME” add-on when signing up for DirecTV Stream. This is much more expensive long-term because DirecTV Stream has live TV, but it comes with a free five-day trial.

That’s three different options, with three different free trials, for getting Paramount+. But if you’re only concerned with watching this specific match, there are two more ways you can do that for free.

Both Fubo and YouTube TV include TUDN and Univision (which will both televise this match in Spanish), and they both come with a free trial. Not every Champions League match is televised (Arsenal vs Porto, for example, isn’t on TV in the US), so you won’t be able to watch every game with these streaming services, but they are still nevertheless perfectly fine options for watching Barcelona vs Napoli at no cost.
