Barcelona vs. Villarreal live stream: How to watch online for free

There are only three live TV streaming services that offer beIN Sports, which you’ll need to watch any La Liga matches. Here’s what you need to know about each one and how to get a free trial.

1) FuboTV

  • Cost: $39.99 for your first month and $44.99 per month thereafter (with a seven-day free trial)
  • Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices

FuboTV is one of the leading live TV streaming services, offering a compelling combination of sports (NBA TVNFL Network), entertainment (AMCSyfyFX), and news (MSNBCCNN) channels in its core package. But where it really shines is with international soccer, offering UniMas, 10 beIN Sports channels, NBCSNFS1 and FS2, and more, so you can watch everything from English Premier League to La Liga all in one place. You’ll also get three-day replay for games and 30 hours of cloud DVR. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)


2) Sling TV

Sling TV offers two base channel packages, both of which cost just $25 per month: Sling Orange, which contains three ESPN channels, and Sling Blue, which boasts FS1 and FS2, NBCSN, and plenty more, in addition to local channels. Sling Orange + Blue combines the two packages for $40 per month. To get the most international soccer action, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month) to get BeIn Sports. The main difference between the two is that the latter also includes NFL RedZone. Alternatively, you can add Español: Best of Spanish TV package for Sling Orange or Sling Blue and get two beIN Sports channels. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)


3) DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now’s Todo y Mas package

DirecTV Now, the online alternative to DirecTV, offers five different channel packages. While the entry-level Live a Little package ($40 per month) covers most of your bases, for international soccer, you’ll want to get the Todo y Mas (“Everything and More”) for $45 per month. This package is geared toward Spanish-speaking viewers, with channels like Univision, ESPN Deportes, Telemundo, and CNN En Español. It’s the only DirecTV Now option that includes beIN Sports, which you’ll need for La Liga matches. (You can view the full DirecTV Now channels list here.)


Barcelona vs. Villarreal: Why it matters

Following the 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid last weekend, Barcelona finds itself in second place thanks to a Sevilla home win over Real Valladolid. Valverde must have his team firing on all cylinders even this early in the season; the top four in Spain are all within three points of each other. Anything other than a win here is not acceptable against a Villarreal team that only has three wins in 13 matches and that will be desperate to get a point at the Camp Nou. With Philippe Coutinho healthy again, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez should have no problems finding the back of the net, as both have nine goals so far this season.
