Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid - where and when

The Madrid derby takes place at the famous Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Saturday, September 29.

Kick-off is at 8.45pm locally, which is 7.45pm BST, 2.45pm ET, 11.45am PT and 4.45am AET on Sunday morning. 

Real Madrid have a chance to avenge the 4-2 Super Cup defeat to local rivals Atletico Madrid last month – and you can live stream the latest Madrid derby simply by following the instructions in this guide. 

Real have so far adapted pretty well to life after Ronaldo. Gareth Bale even commented that his teammates are now playing with more freedom without CR7, and the fine form of the Welshman and fellow forwards Benzema, Isco and Asensio suggests he may be right. 

Under Diego Simeone, Atleti have been formidable at stifling this kind of attacking talent and keeping pace with their city foes, and they'll once again need to be at their organisational best in El Derbi. They also have plenty of threat to pose themselves, with Diego Costa up against Sergio Ramos sure to be an entertainingly physical battle at the Bernabeu.

The Madrid derby is always one of the highlights of the La Liga season so make sure you don't miss out on a live stream of Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid tonight. Read on to find out how you watch wherever you are in the world.
