Watch La Liga Games Online
If there’s a debate about which football league is the best in the world, you can guarantee that it will include Spain’s La Liga. Not only is La Liga home to some of the world‘s top clubs, but it’s also home to some of the world’s top players, like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, David Villa, Sergio Aguero, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and more.
The presence of those names makes La Liga one of the most exciting leagues in the world, and as a result, many fans around the world love to watch live La Liga games.
Even if you’re fortunate enough to be able to catch live La Liga games in person, or even on television, there are many La Liga fanatics who are unable to do so. As a result, or just out of preference, many football fans turn to watching live La Liga games online.
La Liga Past And Present
La Liga’s first season was in 1929. Ten teams took part in that first 18-game season, but today’s La Liga consists of 20 teams and a 38-game season in which each club plays one another once home and away.
The two most decorated clubs in Spain are Real Madrid and Barcelona, who along with Athletic Bilbao, are the only clubs that have never been relegated from La Liga. Real Madrid have won 31 La Liga titles and finished second 18 times, while Barcelona have won 19 titles and finished second 22 times.
The top three finishers in La Liga earn direct entry into the Champions League group stage, while the fourth-placed team earns a place in the Champions League playoff round. The reigning champions are Barcelona, who captured a historic treble last season by winning La Liga, the UEFA Champions League, and the Copa del Rey (Spain’s domestic cup competition).
While it’s a safe bet that the La Liga title will come down to Real Madrid and Barcelona in most seasons, the presence of talent-laden clubs like Sevilla and Valencia, along with the competitiveness from top to bottom, make watching live La Liga games online with Live Sport Network an entertaining experience.
