How to watch Europa League fixtures live on TV and highlights

All the details on how to watch Europa League fixtures live on TV and highlights throughout the 2021/22 season.

Europa League

Live football on TV continues with a fresh batch of Europa League fixtures with dreams to be made and crushed this evening as the competition hits boiling point.


Rangers face Sparta Prague in a make-or-break clash that will define their campaign. Win and they look good to progress, lose and they must defeat Lyon and rely on other results to fall in their favour.

Celtic and Leicester’s campaigns are also balanced on a knife-edge. The Bhoys know they need to topple group leaders Bayer Leverkusen to keep realistic hopes of qualification alive, while defeat for Leicester would also give them a mountain to climb.

Elsewhere, West Ham can sit back and relax as they have already qualified for the next stage.

Fans across the world will be able to tune in for more live games than their TV setups can handle as the Europa League returns to spice up your ever-colder Thursday nights.

RadioTimes.com brings you the complete guide on how to watch Europa League fixtures, including every game you can watch live in the UK and highlights. We’ll keep you updated throughout the whole season.
