The UEFA Champions League (UCL) experience will return on the 6th of September, 2022. As the custom is for DStv, all the games will be aired live on selected SuperSport channels. This article contains the TV programming details on all the Champions League matches, including exact times and the DStv channels that will show the matches.
The UEFA Champions League channels on DStv are SuperSport Grandstand (201), SuperSport Premier League (203), Supersport PSL (202), SuperSport Variety 1 (206) & 2 (207), and SuperSport La Liga (204). Other sports channels will only be able to show repeats and highlights.
As usual, most of the matches will be played from around 5:00 PM (WAT/GMT +1) which is also 6:00 PM (CAT/SAST) in the evening. From September 6, DStv will bring you live matches beginning with the match between Dinamo Zagreb and Chelsea.
There are lots of top teams on show which also means we will be having some very exciting clashes right from the start of this competition. If you are using DStv, you are in the right place. All the fixtures and times will be covered on our Facebook page also.
Here are some interesting encounters you should look out for in this season’s UCL:
- Group A: This promises to be a very exciting group right from match day 1 and the matches you should look out for include Napoli/Liverpool, Ajax/Napoli, and Liverpool Ajax.
- Group C: The match to look out for in this group is obviously the Barcelona/Bayern match-up as Robert Lewandowski will be playing against his former club, Bayern Munich.
- Group E: One very interesting fixture in Group E will be the game between Chelsea and Dinamo Zagreb. Zagreb may be underdogs but they’ll surely be a threat to the blues in this group.
Which team do you think will win this one? It’s too bad Arsenal did not make it to the Champions League again this year and we are not sure when they will return. Here is my prediction: Manchester City will bounce back to win the trophy for the first time. You don’t think so? Drop your predictions in the comments session.
