Ajax vs Benfica live stream: two sleeping giants of European football go head-to-head in Amsterdam
After a 2-2 draw in Lisbon, Ajax welcome Benfica to Amsterdam on Tuesday night for a round of 16 tie that could go either way. With both teams consistently finding the back of the net of late, this could be a high-scoring encounter. Make sure you know how to watch an Ajax vs Benfica live stream from anywhere the world.
US soccer fans can stream Ajax vs Benfica free with the free 7-day trial of Paramount+. Don’t forget to use a VPN if you’re a US citizen stuck outside the States. UK fans can get a BT Sport Monthly Pass.
Benfica are unbeaten in seven in all competitions, but remain 12 points behind Primeira Liga leaders Porto after a 1-1 draw with Vizela on Friday night. The Eagles have only won one of their last 10 games against Dutch opposition but have scored in every competitive match they’ve played since Christmas, so there’s every chance that record could change here.
Ajax have won all three of their home games in the Champions League this season, but the Eredivise leaders’ defence has been slightly unconvincing since the first leg of this tie, conceding four times in their last two league games. They’ve also scored at least twice in each of their European games so far, though, so we could be set to see some goals on Tuesday night.
It’s an 8pm GMT kick-off at the Johan Cruyff Arena tonight, Tuesday 15th March 2022. Read on for more details on how to watch an Ajax vs Benfica live stream wherever you are in the world.
Watch an Ajax vs Benfica free live stream
Soccer fans in the States are lucky enough to be able to watch UEFA Champions 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?
Ajax vs Benfica starts at 3pm 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.
Watch an Ajax vs Benfica live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Ajax vs Benfica 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.
- Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.
- Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For the Champions League, you may wish to choose ‘USA’ for Paramount+.
- Then head over to Paramount+ on your browser or device and enjoy the Ajax vs Benfica 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.
