Real Madrid will look to maintain their perfect start to the new La Liga season as they host Real Sociedad on Sunday.
Carlo Ancelotti's Los Blancos have notched up 12 points from an available 12 to open up an early lead over perennial rivals Barcelona. New midfield signing Jude Bellingham has proved an astute acquisition since his $110 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund, with five goals in just four games.

Madrid have only won two of their last six La Liga games against their opponents on Sunday, with Sociedad coming out on top 2-0 when these teams last met in May.

If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game -- that's where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it's also a great idea if you're traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you're able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, non-blackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors' Choice, ExpressVPN, make it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US, UK and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you're streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.
