In many leagues across Europe, football is starting to wind down with leagues like the Premier League already finished. The Champions League final on English soil is one of the last major tournaments of the season.

If you are in this mood, keep reading this article to find out how to watch this final online in your country.

Where can I watch Dortmund vs Real Madrid?

In the past the UK’s BT Sport YouTube channel streamed the finals for free. Since BT Sport became TNT Sports they’ve now decided to show the game free on the Discovery+ app, so things will be a little different this year.

If you live in the UK you can download the Discover+ app, sign up for a free account and watch without restriction.

However, if you live outside the UK, you’ll find the streaming is blocked for you.

Luckily, there’s a simple solution to this.

With a VPN app, you can unblock any stream around the world, and watch the Champions League final completely for free as if you were living in the UK from any country globally.

What is a VPN?

A VPN is a virtual private network meant to protect your privacy online by allowing you to connect to a server located in another country.

By doing this, you remain mostly-anonymously online and your data is protected.

They also allow you to unblock multimedia content such as streaming websites, YouTube channels, and websites that have geo-restrictions.

In this case, you can unlock the live stream of the final wherever you are in the world.

Where can I get a VPN?

A VPN is easy to get, but the thing is to get the correct one.

We recommend ExpressVPN because it is the best due to its fast streaming speed which is perfect for live sports. It’s also very easy to use and it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you aren’t satisfied with the service.

If you want to check out some other options, we also recommend NordVPN and Cyberghost, which have similar features and fees. The choice is down to you.
