Two attacking sides that are both in the mix for Champions League qualification next season should guarantee goals – so don’t miss a moment of the action with our guide to watching a Gladbach vs Leverkusen live stream, no matter where you are in the world today.
Gladbach vs Leverkusen live stream
Today’s game takes place behind closed doors at the Stadion im Borussia-Park. Kick-off is at at 3.30pm local time (CEST). That means a 2.30pm BST kick-off in the UK and a 9.30am ET / 6.30am PT start in the US – where Fox Sports provides coverage and can be streamed as part of a FREE 1-week Hulu trial in most of the country.
Gladbach came out of quarantine in impressive style last weekend, chalking up a nifty 3-1 victory on the road at Eintracht Frankfurt that keeps their hopes of winning the league on track – going into this weekend, they sit on 50 points, just six behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.
That win may have come at a price, however. French forward Marcus Thuram was on target for Gladbach’s second, but was forced off the field with a knock and is now a major doubt for today’s game.
Leverkusen also made the perfect return after lockdown, scoring four goals to brush past struggling Werder Bremen. Now unbeaten in their last six matches, boss Peter Bosz looks set to have Kevin Volland, Lars Bender and Brazilian star Wendell at his disposal, with the trio having all recovered from injury.
With both teams looking in excellent shape, it’s a game that could go either way – so check out our guide below and find out how to watch a Borussia Monchengladbach vs Bayer Leverkusen live stream today.
Use a VPN to watch Gladbach vs Leverkusen from outside your country
If you’re abroad this weekend but still want to watch coverage of the match from your home broadcaster, consider trying a VPN. If your normal coverage is geo-blocked, this is a good solution that stops you having to tune in to some dodgy stream you’ve heard about on Reddit. Here’s how it works.
A VPN 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.
