La Liga action begins for the 2022-23 season with Osasuna taking on Sevilla Friday on Matchday 1. Sevilla will be hoping to challenge the hierarchy of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid this season. That trio will likely be in a heated race for the league title.

While you won’t be able to catch many La Liga matches on network TV, all 380 league games will be streamed live on ESPN+. Select games will be broadcast across their ESPN networks as well, but if you really want to watch any game of your choosing, ESPN+ is the way to go. If you’re not already signed up for ESPN+, they offer a rate at $9.99/month or you can get in on a bundle with Disney+ and Hulu as well.

There’s not a lot of intrigue for this first set of games. Barcelona’s new additions will get a soft landing spot when they face Rayo Vallecano. Getafe and Atletico Madrid is likely the best matchup of this slate.
