Los Blancos look to bounce back.
Los Blancos will look to bounce back after a 3-0 home loss to CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League, when they host La Liga newcomer Rayo Vallecano. Vallecano has only 10 points from 15 matches, although the Madrid-based club did hold a 2-1 lead over Barcelona for about 30 minutes before Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez stole a 3-2 win in the final five minutes. Here is everything you need to catch a potential upset on the Real Madrid vs. Rayo Vallecano live stream.
Real Madrid vs. Rayo Vallecano
- When: 12:30pm ET, Saturday, Dec. 15
- Where: Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, Madrid

Real Madrid vs. Rayo Vallecano 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 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 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.)
- 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 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.)
3) DirecTV Now
- Cost: $40-$75 per month (after a 7-day free trial)
- Devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire Stick
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. Rayo Vallecano: why it matters
The season could not have started much worse for Real, but nevertheless, Madrid won its group in UCL with ease and only sits five points behind Barca through 15 games. Not too bad considering club president Florentino Perez is already on his third manager this calendar year. As much as the world loves underdogs, there’s really no way to envision Real Madrid losing at home, twice, in four days, to such competition. Real Madrid 3, Rayo Vallecano 1.
