SC Freiburg vs Bayern live stream: Can you watch for free?

After an important win over RB Leipzig last weekend, Bayern Munich look to keep pace atop the Bundesliga when they take on SC Freiburg at Europa-Park Stadion today. Bayern secured three points with a 3-0 result when these sides met in October, but Thomas Tuchel’s club has dropped three straight away matches, so this is anything but a guarantee.

If you live in the United States, you can watch the match–which starts in just about an hour, at 2:30 p.m. ET–on ESPN+. There’s unfortunately no way to watch for free, but ESPN+ is a must-have streaming service for every soccer fan. Here’s everything you need to know and how exactly to watch SC Freiburg vs Bayern.

If you want to watch any ESPN+ content from outside of the United States, you’ll need to use a virtual private network (VPN). A VPN can hide your location and “trick” your computer into thinking you’re located somewhere, thus allowing you to access content that is normally location-restricted.

NordVPN is our recommendation. It comes with everything you need, it’s fast, it works on all streaming devices and it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee in case you decide you don’t want it. If you want some other options, we’ve compiled lists of both the best VPN services and the best VPN deals available right now.

With no room for error, these matches for Inter continue to get more and more compelling.
