We’re a few rounds into the 20/21 season of the UEFA Champions and Europa leagues, and there have been some cracking games already! This past weekend, Lionel Messi starred in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo to inspire FC Barcelona to victory at Juventus, and Hakim Ziyech scored his first Chelsea goal as Frank Lampard's side picked up three points in Russia.

All the UEFA action is available to livestream at www.showmax.com or via the Showmax app.
