The Champions League 2015 live stream and TV time for Juventus vs. Barcelona arrives on Saturday afternoon for United States viewers. With reigning champions Barcelona eliminated, this latest UEFA battle will feature both teams looking to add another title to their resumes. Juventus is going for their third overall and Barcelona attempting to get their fifth with the matchup to be settled in Berlin, Germany. Live streaming online and televised coverage will allow fans in the U.S. to enjoy this epic showdown.
According to NESN.com in their June 4 article, it was reported that Juventus will be without their top defender, Giorgio Chiellini who tore his left calf muscle. That will make it much tougher for his side to stop the talented trio of attacking scorers for Barcelona consisting of superstars Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar. Most likely, the Juventus lineup will feature Leandro Bonucci partnered up with Andrea Barzagli. Angelo Ogbonna is another potential candidate to help with the defensive work, but it certainly doesn’t appear it will be an easy task.
That said, Juventus is going for the huge upset here against the team looking to replace rivals Real Madrid as the new champions. Barcelona last hoisted the trophy in 2011, while it’s been 19 years since Juventus has done so. To get here, Juventus defeated Real Madrid and Barcelona outlasted Bayern Munich in their semifinals legs. The two teams will now meet at Olympiastadion in Berlin to settle this major sports championship. A capacity of nearly 75,000, or more, fans will be in attendance live with millions more watching on television or online.
