Benfica v Liverpool live stream, BT Sport, Tuesday 5 April, 8pm BST

Looking for a Benfica v Liverpool live stream? We've got you covered. 

Liverpool (opens in new tab)’s quest to reclaim the Champions League title takes them to Lisbon on Tuesday, as they face Benfica in the first leg of their quarter-final clash. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side, who were last crowned European champions in 2018/19, earned a 2-1 aggregate win over Inter Milan in the last 16 to reach this stage. 

They are favourites to reach the semi-finals, but Benfica have impressed in this season’s tournament and upset Ajax with a 3-2 aggregate win in the last round. 

The Lisbon outfit smashed Barcelona 3-0 at home in the group stage, before taking a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou, as they finished in second place at the expense of the Spanish giants.

Liverpool have been in imperious form in the Champions League this season, though, winning all six of their group games to top a difficult-looking section ahead of Atletico Madrid, Porto and AC Milan.

Their 1-0 loss to Inter in the last 16 second leg last month was the first game they haven’t won in Europe this season, but they responded to that with four consecutive victories in the Premier League and FA Cup.

The most recent was a 2-0 win against Watford at Anfield on Saturday, where Diogo Jota and Fabinho were on target to keep the Reds in second place, one point behind leaders Manchester City.

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT and the game is being shown live on BT Sport 3 (opens in new tab) in the UK.

Use a VPN to watch a Benfica v Liverpool live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal stream that decides to buffer at the worst possible moment. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
