The UEFA Super Cup is an annual single-match competition that pits the winner of the UEFA Champions League against the winner of the UEFA Europa League for the chance to prove who is the ultimate champion of European football.  

La Liga’s Real Madrid claimed their 14th Champions League title last season after defeating Liverpool in the final in Paris. The only goal of the game came via a strike from Brazilian forward Vinicius Jr and it ensured that the most successful team in the tournament's history lifted the famous trophy once again. 

Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt of the Bundesliga won their first European trophy in more than 30 years after defeating Scottish side Glasgow Rangers on penalties in Seville. 

Real Madrid will of course come into this game as favorites, and manager Carlo Ancelotti has picked pretty much his strongest possible team, with the likes of Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Vinicius all starting. 

Here's how they line up:

Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Éder Militão, Alaba, Mendy, Kroos, Modrić, Casemiro, Valverde, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior

Eintracht Frankfurt: Trapp, Touré, Tuta, N’Dicka, Knauff, Sow, Rode, Lenz, Kamada, Borré, Lindstrøm

Soccer historians might be aware that this is actually a repeat matchup of the 1960 European Cup final. On that night more than six decades ago, Real Madrid cruised to a comfortable 7-3 victory. Could this year’s UEFA Super Cup see a similar scoreline? Find out by watching a Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt live stream, and we’ll show you how to do so below. 

How to watch the Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt live stream wherever you are

The Real Madrid vs Eintracht Frankfurt live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long term.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.
