Barcelona vs Real Madrid live stream: how to watch 2021 El Clasico from anywhere today

It's time to embrace the age of the post-Messi El Clasico

There's no Messi and no Ronaldo, but there's plenty at stake in the first El Clasico of this La Liga season. Follow our guide to watch an Barcelona vs Real Madrid live stream and catch all the La Liga football action wherever you are this weekend.

Today's latest instalment of Spanish football's greatest rivalry may lack some of the big names of the recent past, but should nevertheless provide the same level of intrigue and high-octane El Clasico action we've come to expect from this hallowed fixture.

Despite an uptick in domestic results, the now Messi-less Barcelona remain a shadow of their former glory, with boss Ronald Koeman pleading with fans to manage expectations. Recent Champions League defeats to Bayern Munich and Benfica illustrate how far they've fallen.

The Catalan crisis club may currently find themselves in the unfamiliar realm of La Liga's mid-table, but there has at least been some positive news for the club coming into this huge game, with Ansu Fati joining fellow youngster Pedri in signing a new contract with an incredible release clause of over €1 billion.

Madrid have had to navigate a financial crisis of their own, the fallout from their involvement as key conspirators of the ill-fated European Super League and a failed attempt at signing Kylian Mbappé. 

But aside from an embarrassing defeat to European minnows Sheriff Tiraspol, Real's troubles haven't quite extended onto the field, and win here over their old foes would see them keep pace with early La Liga pace setters Real Sociedad.

It's a huge game for both sides, so read on for how to watch an El Clasico live stream today.

How to watch Barcelona vs Real Madrid from outside your country

Scroll down for all the ways you can watch this clash between these two Spanish footballing rivals online in various countries around the world. But first, you should know that if you're abroad, you probably won't be able to tune in like you normally would at home.

This is because of geo-blocking, a digital restriction that means certain streaming services are only accessible in the region they're based in. Don't sweat it, though, as you've got the option of using a VPN to tune to your preferred coverage wherever you are. It's really easy to do, so don't feel you have to miss out because you finally got to take that well-earned holiday - here's how to get started.
