Watch the Bayern Munich vs Manchester United live stream on Paramount Plus

Paramount Plus is a relatively new streaming service having began in March 2021 after previously being known as CBS All Access. It's the home of the UEFA Champions League so you need to sign up to it to catch the whole tournament. It costs $6 per month but you can watch solely the Bayern Munich vs Manchester United live stream for free by signing up for a Paramount Plus free trial. It only lasts seven days but it's a good taste of what the service has to offer.

Week 2 of the NFL season brings a special edition of Monday Night Football on September 18. There will be two games on Monday night for the first time this season. The first game will see the New Orleans Saints (1-0) traveling to North Carolina to take on the Carolina Panthers (0-1). The game will be played at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium, home of the Panthers. On FanDuel, the Saints are a 3-point road favorite.
With new quarterback Derek Carr under center in Week 1, the Saints gutted out a 16-15 victory against the Tennessee Titans. Carr looked good in his first game wearing the gold and black, throwing for 305 yards and one touchdown. The Panthers also started a new quarterback in Week 1. Bryce Young, the first pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, struggled to find a rhythm, throwing two interceptions in the Panthers 24-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
