Barcelona vs Napoli live stream and how to watch the Europa League online and on TV ...

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Barcelona host Napoli tonight in what is the Catalan club's first game in the Europa League since 2004. Barca might be more familiar with the latter stages of the Champions League, but as their only realistic chance of silverware this season, Xavi's team will need to be at their best to see off a strong Napoli team.

Make sure you know how to watch a Barcelona vs Napoli live stream from anywhere the world. US soccer fans can stream Barcelona vs Napoli free on Paramount+ with this 7-day free trial. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're an American stuck outside the US.

Barcelona's recent difficulties both on and off the field are well documented. The club comes into this game sitting fourth in La Liga, a whopping 15 points behind Real Madrid at the top. A very late Luuk de Jong equaliser saved their blushes against local rivals Espanyol at the weekend, so Gerard Piqué and co will need to perform much better here if they want to take a lead into the second leg. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang makes his full debut up front with Adama and Ferran Torres on the wings, while Óscar Mingueza plays at right-back as veteran Dani Alves has not been included in Barca's Europa League squad. Troubled winger Ousmane Dembélé makes the bench.

Napoli qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League having finished second in their group but equal on points with winners Spartak Moscow. Currently occupying third place in Serie A, the Italian side are looking dangerous. Victor Osimhen starts tonight and is in particularly good Thursday-night form; the Nigerian striker is averaging a goal every 42 minutes in the competition. Lorenzo Insigne, Piotr Zieliński and Elif Elmas line up behind him, with André-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Fabián Ruiz anchoring the midfield.  

It's a 5:45pm GMT kick-off at Camp Nou tonight, Thursday 17th February 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch a Barcelona vs Napoli live stream wherever you are in the world.

Soccer fans in the States are lucky enough to be able to watch UEFA Europa League games live through Paramount Plus – and the first 7 days are free. After that, you'll pay $5.99 a month. No contract. Bargain, right? 

Barcelona vs Napoli starts at 12:45pm ET on Wednesday.

Of course, Paramount Plus is only available within the US. Stuck abroad? Simply use a VPN to access a live stream without being blocked. We recommend ExpressVPN as it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Football fans in Canada can watch every Champions League, Europa League and Premier League game – including Barcelona vs Napoli – live on DAZN.  

A subscription to the streaming service costs $20 (CAD) a month or $150 (CAD) a year.

DAZN is only available within Canada so be sure to use a VPN if you're stuck abroad. We recommend ExpressVPN as it's reliable and comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee.

Watch a Barcelona vs Napoli live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Barcelona vs Napoli live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

How to use a VPN

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the UEFA Europa League, you may wish to choose 'USA' for Paramount +.

3. Then head over to Paramount+ on your browser or device and enjoy the Barcelona vs Napoli live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.

Watch Barcelona vs Napoli in Australia

Stuck outside Oz at the moment? Don't forget that you can use a VPN to access a live stream without being blocked.

You can download the Stan app for Android and iOS devices. Fetch TV, Apple TV, Android TV, most smart TVs, Amazon Fire, and Chromecast also carry the app for smart TV viewing.

Those on Virgin Media will need the Virgin V6 box and a 4K TV to make sure they're getting the action at maximum resolution.
