Carlo Ancelotti’s side sits atop the La Liga table, while Atletico are 10 points back and will enter the unfriendly confines of Santiago Bernabeu likely needing a victory to remain alive in the title chase. As we’ve already seen three times this season, the Madrid Derby is a must-watch event with tons of goal-scoring firepower on both sides, and this one will be no different.

The match is about to start, at 3:00 p.m. ET, and it will be on both ESPN+ (English or Spanish broadcast) and ESPN Deportes (Spanish). There are many different ways you can watch a live stream of the Madrid Derby, including three free options.

If you would rather watch the match in English, then ESPN+ is your only option in the US. A subscription costs $11 per month (or $15 per month for a bundle of ESPN+, Disney+ and Hulu) or $110 for the year, and there’s no free trial, but it’s by far the cheapest long-term option to watch La Liga, as it will have every match of the season in either English or Spanish. It also includes live Copa del Rey, FA Cup, Bundesliga, English Football Championship, other domestic leagues and international competitions, as well as more live sports, documentaries, original shows and exclusive written content.

Fans holding Dortmund scarves in the air at a soccer match.

Undefeated in their last seven Bundesliga games, Dortmund look to continue that momentum on Saturday when they travel to Volkswagen Arena to take on 12th-place Wolfsburg, who are on an opposite sort of run with zero wins in their last six.

The match is starting very soon, at 9:30 a.m. ET, and will stream exclusively on ESPN+ if you're in the United States. That means there is unfortunately no way to watch the match completely free, but ESPN+ remains one of the better deals in all of streaming, especially if you're a Bundesliga fan.
