La Liga’s Schedule

The first match-up between Barcelona and Real Madrid came just before Halloween, Oct. 25, at the Camp Nou in Catalonia. The sides head to Madrid on April 11.

The first Madrid Derby was Dec. 13 at the Bernabeu, won 2-0 by Real to spoil Atleti’s previously-unbeaten league season. Real repays Atleti’s visit when it heads to the Wanda Metropolitano on March 7.

The season kicks off with a Valencia derby between Valencia and Levante on Sept. 13 and runs through Matchday 38 on May 23, a final day highlighted by Villarreal’s visit to Real Madrid.

The dreadful calendar year of 2020 closes up shop with the Basque Derby between Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao, the two rivals also set to meet in the Copa del Rey sometime near that Dec. 30 league date. The second meeting will come April 4.

How to watch La Liga in USA

Photo: World Soccer Talk
Photo: World Soccer Talk

beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS Español have the exclusive television rights for La Liga matches through May 2024.

While beIN SPORTS Español is a Spanish-language network, the programming on that channel is usually slightly different than the English-language beIN SPORTS channel. There will be games shown on beIN SPORTS Español that won’t be shown on beIN SPORTS, and vice-versa. Your best bet is to review our La Liga TV schedule, which is updated throughout the season.

beIN SPORTS, the relatively new sports channel (created in 2012), won the contract to air the Spanish league’s matches here in America in 2012, as the Qatari-based company outbid ESPN, FOX Sports, and GolTV in the process. And in the summer of 2015, beIN SPORTS renewed its agreement to continue broadcasting La Liga for five more seasons in both English-language and Spanish-language through 2019/2020. Surprisingly, given concerns about distribution, LaLiga in August 2019 extended its TV rights agreement with beIN SPORTS for four more years, which will ensure that LaLiga will have been on beIN SPORTS for 13 consecutive years by the time the contract ends in 2024.

On a typical weekend, the Real Madrid and Barcelona games are shown on both beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español, while the games featuring Atletico Madrid are almost always televised on beIN SPORTS. Elsewhere, the majority of the games from La Liga each weekend are shown across beIN SPORTS Connect, beIN SPORTS and/or beIN SPORTS en Español.

While La Liga’s coverage is pretty comprehensive on TV thanks to beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español, not everyone has access to those channels. Or other people prefer to watch games online, on the go via mobile or not subscribe to TV (i.e., a cord cutter).

Streaming La Liga online

fuboTV (free 7-day trial),

• Fanatiz (free 7-day trial, and then upgrade to their $7.99/month plan)

• Sling World Sports (free 7-day trial),

• Vidgo – includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, FS1 and more,

• Sling TV (free 7 day trial); beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español are available via the Best of Sports and Spanish TV Extra packages, and

• beIN SPORTS Connect.

The advantage of watching beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS Español on fuboTV is that, unlike some beIN SPORTS networks on US TV, the picture quality is in HD (not SD). Plus no TV subscription is required and fuboTV also integrates access to beIN SPORTS Connect streams via the signup page. The same applies to Fanatiz, too, at a much more cost-effective rate ($7.99/month).
