1) FuboTV

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) 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.)


3) Univision Now

Tigres vs. Cruz Azul: Why it matters

Coming off a resounding 3-0 road win at Tijuana last week, Tigres should be feeling comfortable this weekend and at their best against Cruz Azul. No doubt that Cruz Azul will still be reeling from that devastating loss against rivals Club America just a few months back in the Liga MX final, and their form has suggested that the hard times will continue. Tigres 2, Cruz Azul 0.
