B/R Live and TNT to air the UEFA Champions League Playoffs live

August 20, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The first qualifying round of matches will be shown live on both platforms.

As part of this season’s UEFA Champions League coverage, TNT is set to telecast the first-leg of all the six playoff matches scheduled for August 21 and 22 for soccer fans in the United States. The network has confirmed that the games will be streamed live on its newly launched premium live streaming sports platform, B/R Live.

Kick-off for each of the first-leg games is set at 3 p.m. ET each day. Prior to the commencement of every game, the preview show dubbed the B/R Football Matchday will air live at 2 p.m. with the halftime and post-match shows (B/R Football Halftime and B/R Football Postmatch) also scheduled for during and after every match.

At the Turner Studios, Kate Abdo will serve as the host for the B/R Football’s UEFA Champions League Playoff matches with Joleon Lescott, Owen Hargreaves and former USMNT pair Carlos Bocanegra and Tim Howard all confirmed to make appearances as guest analysts.

Meanwhile, Stuart Holden and Steve Nash will be the show hosts/analysts for B/R Football’s studio coverage in Los Angeles. See below for the schedule of B/R Football UEFA Champions League Playoffs matches (all matches begin at 3 p.m. ET on B/R Live):

Key UEFA Champions League Playoff matches

  •  BATE Borisov vs, PSV Eindhoven

The host, who the Belarusian top-flight league for the 13th successive time last season will fancy their chances against their Dutch opponents having defeated HJK Helsinki and Qarabağ in prior encounters to set up this one. They posses an admirable record in playoffs on the European stage as they boast wins in all four previous UEFA Champions League ones and three victories out of four in the Europa League.

PSV, on the other hand, will feature in their first UCL Playoff since the 2013/2014 season. The Dutch club has not quite had things go its way in Europe as it’s yet to record a single win in 11 outings (four draws and six defeats). Their last victory came via a 2-1 scoreline against CSKA Moscow back in December 2015.

Having recorded four wins in their five recent games, PSV should be well motivated to put up a strong test away to BATE.

  • Benfica vs PAOK

After a shambolic campaign in Europe last season Benfica will aim at getting back to winning ways, starting with their visitors from Greece. The Lisbon-based club failed to win any of its group-stage games in the Champions League last season despite making an eighth successive appearance.

They will, however, hope to build on the four wins they have recorded in their last five matches coming into an important game as this one. For PAOK, the objective will be to break the group-stage qualification jinx as they have been eliminated at the playoffs stage in the last four seasons.

Having defeated Basel and Spartak Moscow to set up the upcoming clash, the readiness of the Greek club cannot be understated.
