Full shows and clips from the Spanish top flight available to British football fans for free
Life goes on for La Liga after losing one of the most iconic football players in history, Lionel Messi. There are rumblings that Kylian Mbappe could be moving to Real Madrid to fill that void, a move which would surely delight broadcasters. The big hitters in the league are paying the price for their reckless overspending and financial mismanagement as great players from both Real Madrid and Barcelona are shipped off to competing leagues. Nonetheless, Spain's premier football competition still has a lot of pull with fans. It is associated with a beautiful style of play, a generally higher level of technique than its opponents and it still possesses some of the best players and biggest names in the sport.
Whether Madrid manage to get Mbappe or not, there will still be a huge desire around the world to watch La Liga. Current champions Atletico Madrid boast the likes of Luis Suarez and Joao Felix, Real Madrid still have legends like Karim Benzema and Luka Modric as well as emerging young star Vinicius Jr, and Barcelona can still call on megastars Antoine Griezmann and the heir to the Nou Camp throne Pedri. Some of the world's most elite managers are still operating in the Spanish top flight. A combination of the historical legacy of the league itself, the name recognition of its biggest clubs and the superstars that are still plying their trade there make La Liga a fascinating league to watch and one with international appeal.
Britain is of course no exception when it comes to a desire to watch Spanish football and UK fans now have the opportunity to stay up-to-date with all the goings on in La Liga through highlights. Not everyone wants or can afford to subscribe to the various networks necessary to watch entire games from the world's top leagues. La Liga itself is available through Premier Sports or Amazon Prime Video in the UK. Many people simply don't have the money or even the time to subscribe to those providers and watch full 90 minute games from Spain but would like to keep up with the action. That's where highlights come in.
You can avoid those pricey subscriptions and see all the most important action completely free in the UK with highlights. Here's how:
Watch La Liga highlights with FreeSports
As the name suggests, FreeSports is available completely free in the UK. You can watch the channel on TV at Freeview 64. It's also on all the big subscription providers like BT, Sky and Virgin, but for the purposes of watching La Liga highlights for free, you can do so if you have a Freeview box or Freeview built into your TV, which is often the case with most newer models. You can also watch live on their website via their FreeSports Player. This channel, on TV and live stream, periodically shows a La Liga highlights program which is an hour long and consists of all the goals and highlights from that gameweek. It tends to air at least once a day, often multiple times, at various points throughout the day. Simply check the TV guide on their website for more details.
Watch La Liga highlights on YouTube
Another great free option is to visit La Liga's official YouTube channel, on which they upload all the goals from every game of the season. They also upload interviews and other content. The highlights on this channel are not as rigorous as those on FreeSports but if you're just looking to see the goals and key moments, this will do the job. The benefit is that you can jump on their YouTube any time you want and watch highlights of whatever games you particularly care about.
