    For NYC cablevision / optimum customers: BeiN is broadcasting the match on channel 155 at no extra charge.

  2. jtm371 says:

    RM over ticky tack. all depends who is better at diving.

  3. Brn442 says:

    “More electrifying than a hair dryer in a hot tub” brilliant.

  4. nick p says:

    this commentary is a joke right? does anybody think this is even remotely OK?

  5. Brn442 says:

    Ah Benzema

  6. Brn442 says:

    Ah Messi and his “garlic milkshake” – yes, the commentary is a series of jokes.

  7. Cantona says:

    Don’t even waste your time with BeIN… Sky Sports 1 is broadcasting the match.. Just find a stream..

    I couldn’t find the Arabic BeIN stream.. Curious to see who is calling it


  8. Faithless says:

    This commentary team for bein sport is an absolute joke
    I never watch Spanish football except for one offs like this but these two twits have made this unbearable.. I guess I’ll find an alternative source than bein.

  9. Guy says:

    You have to love the double face-grab dives after the goal. These guys are pros. La Liga!!

  10. Flyvanescence says:

    Bloody awful dive and he got the call????

    That wasnt even convincing is this ref blind?

  11. United7 says:

    Gotta love the pro diving. That neymar one was spectacular. A definite 10.

    The ball control and skill is fun to see in spanish soccer but i hate all the theatrics.

    At the same time more english teams need to understand this whrn they come up against continental sides. Tho i’m not sure which is worse, the players or the referees who let it happen. I choose to blame the referees.

  12. jtm371 says:

    very sad the best diver wins what a waste of all this talent.

  13. United7 says:

    wow, really? that’s how the “biggest game in spain” gets decided? Two contentious penalties given by the referee to benefit tax cheat messi.

    spanish soccer is pathetic.

  14. Flyvanescence says:

    This referee is a disgrace. Obi Wan Kenobi shouldv lightsabered his instead of just arguing after that penalty.

  15. United7 says:

    I wonder how much Barcelona paid this referee?

  16. jtm371 says:

    glad to see the ticky tack boys had their water wings on for all the diving they did. Ref was out of his comfort zone awful performance. Just makes La Liga cheap and scripted. EPL is the best league in the world from top to bottom.

  17. Ivan says:

    An absolute feast today, a beautiful game of football this afternoon, with arguably the best players in the world involved.

    BeIN is replaying the game at 10pm. The first 45 mins: some of the best football I’ve ever seen. Amazing!
