How to watch and stream Athletic Club against Real Madrid on TV and online in the United States, United Kingdom and India

Real Madrid will be making a trip to the Basque region to take on Athletic Club in a La Liga encounter on Sunday.

The hosts have not won any of their last 14 games against Real Madrid in La Liga (D4 L10), losing each of the last five. It is their longest winless streak against the Whites in their history in the top flight. Athletic are going through a rough patch as they have won just once in their last five league matches and sit in the eighth spot on the table with 26 points from 17 matches. However, their manager Ernesto Valverde has not lost any of his last five games against Real Madrid in La Liga, during his stint with Barcelona, which might boost their morale before taking on the capital side.

Meanwhile, Karim Benzema, who has scored in each of his last four games in the league (five goals overall), likes to play against Athletic as he has netted 16 goals in 25 games, more than against any other opponent in La Liga. They are chasing Barcelona in a fascinating title race and being three points behind does not give them the luxury to further slip at San Mames.

GOAL brings you details on how to watch the game on TV in the US, UK and India, as well as how to stream live online.
