Catch some of the most stylish football in the world, as La Liga takes centre stage for SuperSport viewers on DStv, with Round 22 action running from Friday 26 to Monday 29 January 2024.

DStv is the only true home of football in Africa, offering a range and depth of action that no other rival can match.

DStv also offers a wide range of language options, including English original, Swahili, Ki-Swahili, Amharic, Pidgin, Twi, Luganda and Portuguese, while DStv Stream allows viewers to watch their favourite football live anywhere, any time.

SuperSport is the only place where you can get English commentary on the legendary La Liga, where the pick of matches for this round sees Barcelona welcome Villarreal to the Lluis Companys Olympic Stadium on the early evening of Saturday 27 January.

While Barca are hoping to put themselves back in the title race, the Yellow Submarine want to rise up the table and put behind them a struggling first half of the campaign.

“I already said it. If you want I’ll repeat it again. The opponent doesn’t need much [to breach our defence],” said Villarreal manager Marcelino. “By shooting four or five times at the goal, and they don’t have to be clear, they score. We are vulnerable. If every game we win they score two goals, like against Celta, it is difficult. We will try to continue working hard to improve this absolutely decisive aspect.”

The two main title hopefuls, Girona and Real Madrid will be in action on Sunday 28 January. The Blanquivermell will be away to Celta Vigo in the afternoon, while Los Blancos will have to wait until the early evening to respond when they face Las Palmas at Estadio de Gran Canaria.

Girona manager Michel continues to play down his team’s chances of winning the title, though he has praised the mental strength of his players: “We have done many things well. My players have an incredible mentality, and resilience in bad times and always try to move forward. Our dream is to go to Europe, but we cannot fight face-to-face with Madrid.”

The round opens on Friday 26 January with Almeria hosting Alaves and closes on Monday 29 January with Granada visiting Getafe, while the key additional match to watch in between sees Atletico Madrid welcome an inconsistent Valencia to the Metropolitano Stadium in the Spanish capital.
