Barcelona travel to Valladolid knowing there’s plenty of work to do if they’re to retain their Spanish league crown. Barça find themselves four points behind Real Madrid as they kick off at 6.30pm BST.
And with only three games left of their season, it seems almost certain the reigning champions will have no room for maneuver as they wait for Zinedine Zidane’s side to slip up.
They do at least have a favourable run in, with all three opponents in the bottom half of the table, beginning with Real Valladolid this weekend.
The hosts are all but safe from relegation in 14th place, despite having won only eight of their 35 matches so far this season. Barça’s biggest worry, however, will be Valladolid’s record of 15 draws, which is a league high.
Real Valladolid vs Barcelona kicks off at 6.30pm BST. UK viewers can watch on the LaLigaTV channel through Premier Sports. Those in the States will need BeIn Sports.
Watch a Real Valladolid vs Barcelona live stream in the UK and Republic of Ireland
Premier Sports has the rights to show Valladolid vs Barcelona in the UK and Ireland in conjunction with LaLigaTV. Football fans can subscribe to the LaLigaTV channel through Premier Sports on Virgin Media (£9.99), Sky Sports (£5.99) or by using the Premier Player web player (£5.99).
Premier’s sister site, FreeSports, will also show select La Liga games each weekend. Keep an eye out on the FreeSports schedule to find out which ones. You can watch the games on the FreeSports app or the FreeSports player.
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. The bundle includes Premier Sports 1 HD (CH 551) and Premier Sports 2 HD (CH 552) as well.
Home also to Italy’s Serie A, a Premier Sports package is available to Sky TV customers for £9.99 per month, including LaLiga TV plus the two Premier Sports channels as well.

Watch Real Valladolid vs Barcelona from abroad using a VPN
UK citizens away from home or stuck abroad will need a VPN to access the free Premier Sports live streams from outside the UK. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access – even if you’re a UK national.
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 Valladolid vs Barcelona in the USA
Rights to show Real Valladolid vs Barcelona in the US – 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.
