Barcelona vs. Real Madrid start time and channels

The Barcelona vs. Real Madrid match kicks off at 10 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. PDT today (Sat, Oct. 24). BeIN Sports carries the match in the U.S. while UK viewers will be able to watch on La Liga TV.

It's time for the Barcelona vs. Real Madrid live stream, which is always a must-see, as this El Clasico (much like every installment) sees the stakes much more elevated than usual. Neither team enters the match topping the La Liga table; instead both Barcelona and Real Madrid have struggled in the early going with neither looking particularly dominant.

Real Madrid finds itself in even hotter water, having lost its last two matches — one in La Liga, the other in the UEFA Champions League. Barcelona lost last week, too, but it recaptured some momentum with a midweek Champions League win.

In other words, this is not your usual El Clasico, featuring Spain's two biggest teams. Still, any Barcelona vs. Real Madrid match is worth watching, and we can tell you where to find the match and how to use a VPN if it's not streaming in your area.

How can I use a VPN to watch Barcelona vs. Real Madrid?
