In total, 139 million viewers tuned into pay-tv La Liga broadcasts in Spain, with 47 million on the free-tv side of things. On average, each game is seen by just over 542,000 viewers, with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid being the only teams to average more than 1 million per game.



Perhaps surprising is Betis' performance, coming in at 7th, but this due to them being featured a lot on Gol TV, which is a free station that transmits one game per matchday.


The least favorite team appears to be Leganés with less than 300,000 viewers on average, followed by Celta, Eibar and Getafe.
