Spanish football is often a two horse affair between Barcelona and Real Madrid and it’s no surprise that both teams have won the title more than any other teams.
Barcelona is the current title holder and the most successful club in the competition with 12 titles and runners-up 9 times. Real Madrid isn’t too far behind holding 9 titles with 5 runners up positions.
Why do I need a VPN
The entire match is being streamed live on the Russian TV Network.
When you visit the website the first thing it does is check something called your IP Address.
An IP Address is a set of numbers that is unique to your internet connection at the time. One of the negatives of an IP Address in this case is it gives away your physical location.
As soon as the MatchTV website sees that you’re outside Russia it throws up a big block message.
A VPN allows you to get an IP Address from another country temporarily. When using VyprVPN you can get a Russian IP Address.
When you connect to the VyprVPN app or software the MatchTV website thinks you’re in Russia even though you’re somewhere else in the world and instead of blocking you allows to you watch Barcelona vs Real Madrid Spanish Super Cup online in any country.
Don’t forget, all you need is a VPN, just click the link below and follow the instructions earlier in this guide. We would love to hear who you’re supporting or who you think will win so why not leave us a comment below?
