How to watch and stream Real Madrid against Barcelona in the United States, United Kingdom and India

Real Madrid host Barcelona in a La Liga encounter on Sunday at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in the first Clasico of the season. Los Blancos will be vying for revenge as they were outclassed 4-0 in March by the Catalan club in front of their home fans, and nothing but a convincing win over their eternal rivals will satisfy their ever-demanding fans.

The league standings add more spice to this blockbuster of a match, with the two sides level on points and separated only by goal difference at the top of the table.

Both drew their respective Champions League matches last time out; while an Antonio Rudiger equaliser helped Madrid to secure a point against Shakhtar Donetsk in Poland, Barcelona were held to a 3-3 draw by Inter at Camp Nou.

Real Madrid's defence has been a cause of concern for coach Carlo Ancelotti as they have conceded seven goals in eight matches in the league, and it is evident that the backline needs to tighten things up to stop Lewandowski and co. from celebrating at the Bernabeu. Meanwhile, their opponents boast the meanest defence having let in just once in eight matches. GOAL has all the details about the match, including how to watch it on TV and online in the United States, United Kingdom and India.
