Sling TV

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Real Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao: Preview, recent form, upcoming fixtures

Real Madrid (Last 5 La Liga matches: WWWDD) will look for its first win in three after dropping points against Valencia last weekend before Wednesday’s El Clásico. Los Blancos have drawn Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, and certainly have the more difficult draw than their Catalan counterparts, who play Napoli. Another slip up here and things may start to get intense for Real Madrid.

Athletic Bilbao (Last 5 La Liga matches: WWW)LD has been very good this season, sitting only two points out of Spain’s fourth UCL spot. Bilbao last got a point in the Bernabéu in 2018 after a 1-1 draw, before losing 3-0 in the spring rematch earlier this year.

Upcoming fixtures

Real Madrid, Saturday, Jan. 4 at Getafe (La Liga); Wednesday, Jan. 8 at Valencia (Spanish Supercopa)

Athletic Bilbao, Friday, Jan. 3 at Sevilla (La Liga)
