Real Madrid takes on Barcelona in the world famous El Clasico.
Unfortunately, due to rights restrictions, it means the game won’t be able to be viewed in the UK without an expensive cable subscription.
So even if you’ve got a subscription to BT Sport or any of the other channels that usually show the matches then unfortunately this time you won’t be able to watch.
If you’re in the UK this leaves you minimal official options to watch the match.
The good news is there are overseas networks who are showing El Clasico and with a little tool called as VPN you can access these and stream the match live online.
How to live stream El Clasico online
To watch the match online you’re going to need to sign up for a service called a VPN. There is a lot of choice but my number 1 recommendation is Surfshark.
A VPN is a system to protect your online privacy and part of how it does this is by disguising your online location.
In Russia a service called MatchTV is showing Real Madrid vs Barcelona live online. The service is completely official and free to Russian viewers and if you’re outside russia, you can use a VPN to watch in any country.
Without using a VPN MatchTV is restricted but by using one you can unblock it and view El Clasico anywhere in the world.
What you will need
Firstly you need to sign up for a VPN provider that offers a ‘Russian server’ and is fast enough to stream video.
We’ve been testing some of the best VPN providers to see who is up to the job and the following three are my recommendations.
All you need to do is click on one of the names above or the blue button to visit our recommended provider.
Once you’ve visited the website sign-up and then download their software.
How to use the VPN
Below we’ve put together a simple guide using Surfshark but the process is much the same with CyberGhost VPN and VyprVPN only the layout will vary a little.
- Visit the Surfshark website and click Buy Now and sign-up.
- Click the Apps area and download the software for your PC, Mac, tablet or phone.
- Install and Run the software.
- Press Locations then search ‘Russia’.
- Choose Russia and tap Connect.
- Once connected head over to MatchTV to stream the game.
The Surfshark app will now make connection for you.
Once it has connected any website you visit will think you’re in Russia.
Head over to the MatchTV website
Now you’re connected to the Surfshark app or an app from one of the other providers any websites you visit think you’re in Russia.
All you need to do now is visit the MatchTV website at the time El Clasico is about to kick off.
You’ll now be able to watch the entire match between Real Madrid and Barcelona in El Clasico in any country in the world.
This, of course, means you can watch in the UK, France, America, Canada, Australia, Thailand, Brazil or any other country on the planet.
Enjoy El Clasico!
