Barcelona v Real Madrid in the first El Clasico of 2016-17 is NOT on live TV in the UK – but you can still watch all the action as it unfolds at bet365.
You probably know that Sky Sports have the rights to broadcast La Liga matches in the UK and show as many games as they can, sometimes even nine of the 10 that take place over the course of a weekend.
The problem, of course, is that a Sky subscription can be pretty expensive and if you’re only really interested in watching the big La Liga games, it’s hard to justify forking out a big sum every month.
And now Sky must be cursing the Spanish football authorities for the scheduling of this El Clasico match because it means they are unable to show it live!
The reason is that when the English football season is in progress, TV companies are not allowed to show live games from anywhere around the world between 15:00 and 17:00 on a Saturday so that it does not impact upon attendances at matches taking place in this country.
Therefore, with El Clasico kicking off at 15:15 GMT on Saturday, Barcelona v Real Madrid will be one of only two La Liga matches not being shown live on Sky during the weekend of December 3-4, the other being Leganes v Villarreal.
You can watch Alaves v Las Palmas live on Sky or Sporting Gijon v Osasuna, but not El Clasico!
Of course, Barcelona v Real Madrid will be shown in full just as soon as Sky are permitted to, but you’ll want to know the result ASAP won’t you? Even if you try to avoid it, it will be pretty difficult given the amount of coverage it will have on social media.
