Atletico Madrid v Barcelona live stream, 8.00pm BST, La Liga TV

Barcelona face a huge task on their return from the international break as they look to get their stuttering league campaign back on track away to Atletico Madrid.

Ronald Koeman has had a difficult start to life in Catalonia and his side are down in eighth place ahead of their trip to the capital.

A 5-2 win over Real Betis before the break was much needed, coming in the wake of a four-match winless run in La Liga that included a 3-1 El Clasico defeat at the hands of rivals Real Madrid.

Their form in the Champions League has been better, with wins over Ferencvaros, Juventus and Dynamo Kiev giving the Catalans a perfect start, but they are nine points behind league leaders Real Sociedad, albeit with two games in hand.

Atleti also have two games in hand but sit in third place and just three points off the top of the table.

Diego Simeone’s side have been in excellent form lately, going on a five-match unbeaten run before the break.

However, they will be without the injured Vitolo, Yannick Carrasco, Diego Costa and Sime Vrsaljko for the clash at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Barca’s injury list includes Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araujo.

Kick-off is at 8.00pm GMT, with the game being shown on La Liga TV in the UK. See below for watching details where you are:

How to watch an Atletico Madrid v Barcelona live stream outside your country

If you’re out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Isco nutmeg. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
