Is Barcelona vs Juventus on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Champions League fixture

Barca are Group G leaders on a maximum 15 points from five matches, while second Juve have 12 points – having won all of their games in the tournament so far this term with the exception of the reverse fixture against the La Liga club.

The Catalan side won 2-0 against their 10-man opponents in Turin in October, and Juve coach Andrea Pirlo will be eager to see his team achieve a wholly different result this time.

With third-placed Dynamo Kyiv and bottom Ferencvaros both on one point each, Barca and Juve have already qualified comfortably for this term’s knockout stages. Juve still have a chance of finishing top of the group, but they’ll need to win by a three-goal margin or any two-goal margin other than 2-0 to do so.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Champions League fixture:

When is it?

How can I watch it?

The game will air live on BT Sport. Subscribers can also stream it live on the BT Sport website and app.

What is the team news?

Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is once again suffering from a hamstring problem so will miss out here, joining fellow absentees Ansu Fati, Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto. Samuel Umtiti is also unlikely to feature as a result of a knee issue.

Juventus, meanwhile, will be without the injured Merih Demiral, Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon, but Alvaro Morata is expected to appear as his suspension is only keeping him out of domestic fixtures.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Dest, Araujo, Lenglet, Alba; Pjanic, De Jong; Pedri, Messi, Coutinho; Griezmann
