However, Amazon currently has the rights to the majority of Ligue 1 matches, and of course, Amazon owns Twitch, so it’s possible that the stream will be available for anyone worldwide.

Hopefully, viewers across the world will be able to watch the match as it will be a huge moment for football and Messi fans everywhere.
