The 2019/20 La Liga season is once again serving up the sort of high-flair, exciting football that we've come to expect from a league that boasts some of the world's most feted players. That's why we're here to help you get a La Liga live stream.

With the likes of Eden Hazard and Joao Felix added into a roster that already includes the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi, this year's Spanish top flight is already proving to be one of the most fiercely competitive seasons in recent years.

Having once again been honoured with the Ballon d'Or, Argentine wizard Messi is once again having a season to savour, with his Barca side odds-on favourites to make it three in a row.

While both Real Madrid and figurehead new signings Hazard and Luka Jovic haven't quite found the sort of form expected of them in the early part of the season, they've managed to still string enough wins together to keep very much in contention of improving on their 33(!) previous titles. 

Outside the big two, both Sevilla and Real Sociedad have made strong starts to this campaign, however Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid appear to be missing goal scoring powers of the departed Griezmann and will need to improve to finish the season within the top three.

It's shaping up to be another stormer of a season in Spain. And to make sure that you don't miss out on any of the biggest games, make sure to read on to discover how to get a La Liga live stream.

Use a VPN to watch La Liga Spanish football from outside your country

Further down this page, you'll discover how to watch La Liga football in the likes of the UK, US, Canada and Australia. It's even free in some places. You can generally tune in on TV or online.

But if you go to watch La Liga online from overseas, you'll quickly discover an obstacle - geo-blocking. That means you won't be able to watch the stream unless either you i) find some dodgy feed from Reddit (which we strongly don't advise), or ii) use a VPN (which we do, and it's really easy as well). 

A Virtual Private Network is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location (i.e. one that's back in your home country).

And it's ExpressVPN that tops the lot. We can confidentially say that because we've tested so many. It's fast, safe and super easy to download and operate. Plus, it's compatible on laptops, mobiles, tablets, consoles Apple TV, Smart TVs...ths list goes on.

And, because of its encrypted tunnels, ExpressVPN will just generally keep you safer and more anonymous online.
