How the La Liga tiebreaker works
If two teams are tied on points at the end of the season, head-to-head records during the season are used as the tiebreaker. So, with Atleti on 83 points and Real on 81 points, an Atleti draw on Saturday, coupled with a Real win, would put both teams on 84 points. Real, by virtue of winning and drawing against Atleti this season, would emerge as La Liga champions. If Atleti wins on Saturday, though, there’s no need for a tiebreaker, as Diego Simeone’s squad would win its first La Liga title since 2014.
Atletico Madrid vs. Valladolid: Preview
After being on the front foot for most of the match last weekend, Atletico Madrid let in a Ante Budimir goal to go down to Osasuna with just 15 minutes to go. But then, thanks to late goals from Renan Lodi and Luis Suarez, Atleti pulled out the 2-1 win to place Simeone’s squad in control of its own destiny.
Valladolid is trying to stave off relegation, grouped with three other teams that could save their campaigns with a win.
According to the oddsmakers at Bovada, Atletico Madrid is favored on Saturday.
- Atletico Madrid: -305
- Villarreal: +850
- Draw: +405
Stream Atletico Madrid live: The best streaming services for Spanish soccer
The U.S. La Liga rights belong to beIN SPORTS, which can be streamed from the following platforms:
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $59.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo can entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at even Fubo’s most basic tier.
The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel.
Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports to catch a Real Madrid live stream. CBS Sports Network and TUDN are also findable via Fubo. To get the most sports, consider adding the Sports Plus with NFL RedZone add-on at $10.99 a month to a robust Fubo Elite package.
|Family with Showtime||$74.99 ($69.99 for first 3 mos.)|
If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.
There’s also a Sports Extras option for Orange + Blue subscribers, with MLB Network, NBA TV, and NHL Network part of the plan. There’s also a Sports Extra add-on for the Sling Blue package, and another one for the Sling Orange package.
You can stream Real Madrid in English and Spanish via the World Sports package for $10 a month, and you can get just the Spanish version for the same price in Sling’s Best of Spanish package.
|Orange + Blue||$50|
For under $40 a month, Vidgo brings more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Vidgo channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), NFL Network, and it’s one of the few streaming services that carries BeIN Sports. Like Fubo, it started out for streaming sports but carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.
Vidgo has two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels. At the Plus level on the English side, you get NFL RedZone and all the Pac-12 Network regional options.
Fanatiz is a streaming service created specifically for the soccer fan. It importantly carries La Liga and Ligue 1 action via BeIN Sports. (As soccer fans know, BeIN is essential yet absent from most of the big streaming services. It’s tough to find a Real Madrid live stream on most streaming services.)
With Fanatiz, though, you can stream Real Madrid, Barcelona, and the rest of La Liga for just $7.99 per month.
Fanatiz also carries Gol TV and TyC Sports, giving access to competitions like the CAF Confederations Cup, the Copa Libertadores, the Copa Sudamericana, and the Copa del Rey. Plus, it has additional content that will appeal to Boca Juniors and Real Madrid fans in particular.
Plus, there’s a daily pass option, so if you’re just trying to catch an El Clasico or Madrid Derby match, you can pay $4.99 and have access for a 24-hour period.
If you’re into Serie A, there’s a new package for you. Club Italia, for an additional $7.99 a month, gives you access to RAI Italia broadcast of Italy’s top-flight league the way Italians watch it. If you like what you’ve seen from Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli, and the surprising Atalanta this season in Champions League, you can now see them week in and week out in Serie A via Fanatiz.
Fanatiz has also just come out with a package covering the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, better known as the Brasileirão. For $7.99 a month, you can access Fanatiz-produced coverage of Brazil’s top-flight league, which is home to a number of rising stars in one of the world’s most soccer-loving nations.
