2nd, You will be disappointed after installing these apps. Because you still can’t watch the game because heavy server load and too many ads. You will end up with a headache and mobile full of notifications and some kind harmful viruses.
Google Play and Apple App store banned these apps for a reason. because these are not safe to install for users.
