Surprise Champions League contender Alavez faces its biggest test yet.

Real Madrid returns to La Liga this weekend to host fifth-place Alaves in a big decider for the top-four in Spain. A win here for Alaves would go a long way toward the club’s hopes of playing in the UEFA Champions League next year, as the top four in England, Spain, Italy, and Germany qualify directly for the group stage of the 2019-20 UCL. Here is everything you need to know to watch the Real Madrid vs. Alaves live stream online for free.

Cost: $39.99 for your first month and $44.99 per month thereafter (after a 7-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 TV, NFL Network), entertainment (AMC, Syfy, FX), and news (MSNBC, CNN) channels in its core package. But where it really shines is with international soccer, offering UniMas, 10 beIN Sports channels, NBCSN, FS1 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 pricing: $25-$40 per month (after a 7-day free trial)

Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, and iOS and Android devices

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 to get the 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN Sports Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from LaLiga, Ligue 1, Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.)

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. Alaves: Why it matters

With 32 points from 21 games so far, relegation is no longer a threat for Alaves which makes the first half of the season a definite success. But the Basque club will not set its bar too low, and this season the small club with less than 20 top-flight seasons has a legitimate shot at making the UCL group stage. Four points separates Alaves and Sevilla in fourth, and three points over Real Madrid could give Alaves the confidence to get over the line. Everything will be in play on Sunday, where two teams who may be in UCL next season face off. Prediction: Real Madrid 2, Alaves 2.
