Real Madrid vs. Valencia 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) Sling TV

Sling Orange + Blue

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.)

2) 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.)

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.)

Real Madrid vs. Valencia: Why it matters

Four weeks and two promotions ago, Santiago Solari was a Real Madrid youth coach who had none of the concerns that come along with managing the world’s biggest club. Now tasked with taking over a team that has won three straight UEFA Champions Leagues, he has no room for error and is on the hot seat barely two weeks after being named permanent manager. Real Madrid sits in sixth place in La Liga, which is exactly four spots below what is considered acceptable for this club. This is a team that should be favored in every game, but Real has consistently lost to some of the worst teams in La Liga since the start of the 2017-18 season. The talent is always on display in the Champions League, so you have to wonder if the team’s struggles are down to a lack of focus and intensity against smaller teams. This squad is too expensive to break up, and the depth is necessary now more than ever since Cristiano Ronaldo departed this summer. It seems to me right now that whether or not the team wins is up to the players, and either way the blame is on the head coach. Players know a must-win game when they see one, so expect a performance worthy of their reputation.
