The La Liga 2022/2023 season is about to get underway again after the winter break.
UEFA Champions League winners Real Madrid are reigning La Liga champions, having secured their 35th(!) top-flight Spanish league title last time out. But it’s Barcelona who top the table as things get started after the World Cup, with a slender two-point lead over Real.
As well as welcoming promoted clubs Almería, Real Valladolid and Girona, La Liga also features many new players for the 2022/23 season including Antonio Rüdiger from Chelsea, who’s now at Real Madrid, and Pepe Reina, who joined Villarreal from Serie A‘s Lazio.
Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski are among the players who’ve moved to Barcelona in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, there have been high-profile departures out of La Liga too – for example Gareth Bale, who has left Real Madrid for Los Angeles FC.
Here’s how you can tune into all the action this season live in the UK.
La Liga table – standings and stats
If statistics are your thing, then the official La Liga website has got you covered with the league table, results, the upcoming fixture schedule and so on. And if that isn’t enough info for you, then dive into the dedicated ‘Statistics’ tab where you can browse tables of the top scorers, top number of assists, passes, saves and even mini league tables for yellow and red cards. You’ll be an expert in no time.
La Liga winter break 2022/23
In line with many European leagues, La Liga paused for the World Cup on November 9 and starts up again on New Year’s Eve, December 31 – a few days later than the Premier League‘s resumption on December 26.
The final round of fixtures for the 2022/23 season are due to be played on June 4, which is also the final scheduled day of the season for Italy’s top men’s football division, Serie A.
La Liga – how to watch live online in the UK
La Liga matches in the UK are available to watch on LaLiga TV. The channel made its own big-name signing for the 2021/22 season in the form of Gary Lineker, who hosts coverage alongside pundits such as Gaizka Mendieta, Aitor Karanka and Gus Poyet. Gary, who played for Barcelona in the mid-to-late 1980s, said he was “thrilled” to join the channel and added he was a regular viewer, too.
