Real Madrid vs Barcelona live stream: how to watch El Clasico wherever you are in the world
Real Madrid vs Barcelona live stream, LaLigaTV, Saturday April 20, 8pm BST
Real Madrid welcome Barcelona on Saturday night for what will be a much more consequential Clasico than many expected earlier in the season – so if you want a Real Madrid vs Barcelona live stream, this is the place to be.
Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid have topped La Liga table for months, and at one point had what seemed to be an unassailable lead – but either of the Clasico rivals will go top with a win tonight, ahead of Atleti’s game on Sunday.
British football fans got a taste of the form Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid have found earlier in the week, when they dismantled Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League. Toni Kroos, Vinicius Jr, Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio all appeared on top of their game against the Reds.
Ronald Koeman’s Barcelona, meanwhile, have also found their feet after a shaky start under the Dutchman.
Aside from a 4-1 defeat to PSG in the Champions League, they are unbeaten in the last month, scoring 29 goals in 11 games. During that period, they have overcome a 2-0 first-leg loss to Sevilla to book themselves a place in the Copa del Rey final next weekend, and they have not been beaten in the league since early December.
This same fixture earlier in the season saw a 3-1 win for Madrid in Catalonia, sparking a new round of speculation over Lionel Messi’s future that has yet to dissipate.
While questions hangover where the diminutive Argentinian will be playing next season, there is no surprise to see him at the top of La Liga’s goalscoring charts, with 23 – five ahead of Los Blancos’ top scorer, Karim Benzema.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST and the game is being shown on LaLigaTV in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.
Use a VPN to watch an Real Madrid vs Barcelona live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don’t want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that’s where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
There are plenty of options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
