Unbeaten in La Liga since September, Real Madrid look to keep that momentum going on Thursday when they head to Estadio Coliseum to take on Getafe.

Geta have lost three of their last five matches across all competitions, but they have held their own against Real Madrid as of late, with one win and one draw in their last three home matchups against Los Merengues. When these two sides met in September, it took a Jude Bellingham goal in added time for Real Madrid to prevail, so this one figures to be a compelling showdown.

The match is about to start, at 3:00 p.m. ET, and will stream live on  ESPN+ in the United States, as is the case with all La Liga matches. But this one is also televised on ESPN Deportes (Spanish broadcast), giving us several free live stream options.

Is There a Free Getafe vs Real Madrid Live Stream?

Fubo TV.

If you’re OK watching the match in Spanish, then you have three different ways to watch a free live stream. The Fubo “Latino” channel package, YouTube TV “Spanish Plan” and DirecTV Stream “Entertainment” package plus “Español” add-on all include ESPN Deportes, which televises most La Liga matches, including this one. They are all significantly more expensive than ESPN+, as they are designed to fully replace cable, but Fubo comes with a free seven-day trial, while the YouTube TV and DirecTV Stream free trials will last five days, giving you lots of options for watching Getafe vs Real Madrid at no cost.
