Real Madrid continue the defence of their La Liga title on Saturday as they take on Cádiz at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano.
Premier Sports has the rights to show Spanish football in the UK and Ireland in conjunction with LaLigaTV, while Spanish football lives on beIN Sports in the US. (Don’t forget to use a VPN if you’re trying to watch from abroad.)
Zinédine Zidane’s Real side are currently undefeated at the top of La Liga, beating Levante 2-0 last time out to make it three wins and a draw from their opening four games.
The good news for the reigning champions is that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is available for the visit of Cádiz, but they start without injured pair Eden Hazard and Dani Carvajal. Modric, Kroos and Isco make a tidy midfield three. Benzema, Vinicius and Lucas Vazquez are the attack.
And the hosts shouldn’t be expecting a straightforward evening, either, with Cádiz having done exceptionally well since being promoted to La Liga this season. With seven points from their first five matches, Álvaro Cervera’s side sit eighth going into the weekend and have won both of their away fixtures so far.
Real Madrid vs Cádiz kicks off at 5.30pm BST Saturday 17 October. Read on to find out how to watch a LaLigaTV live stream wherever you are.
Watch Real Madrid vs Cádiz in the UK & ROI
Premier Sports has the rights to show Spanish football in the UK and Ireland in conjunction with LaLigaTV. Football fans can subscribe to Premier Sports on Virgin Media, Sky Sports or using the Premier Player web player platform.

LaLiga TV can be found on Virgin Media in HD on channel 554. It’s available to all Premier Sports customers and any Virgin Media subscriber can sign up for £9.99 per month through their on-screen service – Home > Apps & Games > All Apps > TV Channel Upgrades on the remote.

Watch Real Madrid vs Cádiz from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant LaLigaTV services, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal
Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
Watch Real Madrid vs Cádiz in the USA
Rights to show La Liga matches in the USA – alongside coverage of France’s Ligue 1 and UEFA cup competitions – belong to beIN Sports. It is quite easily bolted on to your existing cable package and includes the Connect service for watching games live on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or Roku box.
The Basic package costs just $10 a month, and includes the main beIN Sports channel as well as beIN Sports 7, 8 and 9 – all in HD – alongside a range of entertainment services.
Its dedicated Sports package will set you back $25 a month, giving you all the benefits of the Basic tier, plus beIN Sports channels 1 through to 16 – again all in HD – as well as its basketball service, beIN Sports NBA.
Two other tiers are also available – Premium at $30 a month and Elite at $45 – for various movie and entertainment add-ons to your full sports package.
The former is a dedicated sports platform, which offers a $45-per-month package including beIN Sports and its Spanish sister channel alongside a range of other sports, film and entertainment services. You can boost your channel list from around 80 to more than 100 – including beIN Sports 2 to 10 – for an extra $5 a month with fubo EXTRA. It also offers a free seven-day trial, for which you can sign up via the fuboTV website.
Sling TV offers a less comprehensive package of beIN Sports channels, but can save you a bit of money. It comes via the Sports Extra package, which is a bolt-on to Sling’s entertainment-focussed Orange and Blue services – each of which costs $25 a month, or $40 together.
Adding Sports Extra to your Orange package will set you back an extra $5 per month, offering access to beIN Sports as well as ESPN Goal Line, ESPN Bases Loaded, Stadium, Outside TV, Motorsport TV and Univision TDN.
It’s more expensive to add to the Blue tier – $10 each month – but you’ll get extra sport from NFL RedZone, NBA TV, NHL Network, NBC Golf, PAC 12 Network and The Olympic Channel.
You can choose your packages and get a free seven-day trial from the Sling TV website.
