European football is back this weekend and all eyes are on Germany’s Bundesliga as the first top-flight continental league to restart live matches following the Covid-19 shutdown. Here’s how to watch one of today’s top fixtures and live stream RB Leipzig vs Freiburg online from anywhere in the world.
RB Leipzig vs Freiburg cheat sheet
Today’s kick-off is 3.30pm local time (CEST), which is 2.30pm BST in the UK and 9.30am ET / 6.30am PT in the US – where it’s on Fox Sports 2 and there available to stream with a FREE Hulu + Live TV trial .
RB Leipzig vs Freiburg takes place at the imaginatively named Red Bull Arena stadium in Leipzig. The home side currently sit third in the Bundesliga table and are just five points off league leaders Bayern Munich, so a win here could be huge in the race to the Salatschüssel.
Freiburg will be no pushover, however, with the Black Forest club entering the weekend in eighth place on 36 points. Just before the coronavirus shutdown, they notched an impressive 3-1 win over Union Berlin and will be hoping the restart finds them in similar form.
This is one of the tastiest Bundesliga fixtures this weekend so read on as we explain how to get a trustworthy RB Leipzig vs Freiburg live stream and watch the match online, no matter where you are in the world.

Anyone from these countries currently abroad may find they can’t access the streaming services they normally would at home. This is because of geo-blocking, but there’s a very easy solution in the form of a VPN…
Use a VPN to live stream RB Leipzig vs Freiburg from outside your country
If you’re abroad this weekend but still want to watch coverage of the match from your home broadcaster, you’ll need a VPN to do so. That’s because your normal coverage will be geo-blocked. It’s really easy to do and stops you having to tune in to some dodgy stream you’ve heard about on Reddit.
A VPN is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location. We’ve tested hundreds of VPNs and can recommend ExpressVPN as the best VPN service currently available.
ExpressVPN (which also comes with a 30 day money back guarantee) is the #1 rated best VPN in the world right now. You can watch on many devices at once including Smart TVs, Fire TV Stick, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android phone, iPads, tablets etc. Check out ExpressVPN and get 3 months extra free when you sign up for an annual plan.
And don’t forget that a VPN isn’t just for football…there’s loads you can do with them. From unblocking restricted sites and watching Netflix in other countries to adding an extra layer of security for online shopping and banking.
VPNs aren’t foolproof, though, and sometimes you’ll find that content still gets blocked even if you’re relocated your device back home. Sometimes, all you need to do is enter your browser’s private or Incognito mode to fix the issue – but on a few occasions, you may be plain stumped.
Based on our experience, this is the exception rather than the rule, but it’s worth being aware – and another reason we recommend ExpressVPN, as it offers 24/7 customer support to help you solve any server woes you may encounter.
