Featuring many of the best players in the world, fiery managers and some of the greatest rivalries in world football, La Liga is a must-watch for football fans in Australia. La Liga teams often enjoy deep runs in European cup competitions, which only adds to the excitement. You're guaranteed a thrilling time if you decide to catch up with the country's Primera División.
Last season, Real Madrid ended bitter rivals Barcelona's two-year reign as champions. The Madrid side finished the season strongly following the coronavirus hiatus to complete the campaign five points in front of Barca, with Atletico Madrid a distant third.
The off-season was dominated by talk of Lionel Messi's desire to leave Barcelona, with reports he was heading to England to join Manchester City. Instead, he decided to remain at Camp Nou and will be fiercely motivated to wrest the title back from Los Blancos. In Australia, you can watch the biggest La Liga matches on your TV or live stream them on your favourite device with ease.
