The France vs Germany Euro 2020 game starts today (Tuesday, June 15) at 8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.
The France vs Germany live stream is here, and it's undoubtedly the biggest game of Euro 2020 so far: a star-studded firecracker between two of the most successful international teams ever.
France, of course, are the reigning world champions and pose threats from just about everywhere on the pitch. Kylian Mbappe has the ability to change the course of a match in a moment, and he's just one part of France's world-class front three, alongside Antoine Griezmann and Karim Benzema.
However, while Germany's footballing mastery is world-renowned, there's a very real prospect that Joachim Low's men could be knocked out in the group stages, such is the caliber of their rivals in the Euro 2020 'Group of Death'.
Here's the current odds on France vs Germany via William Hill Sportsbook via CBS Sports:

Unusually, Germany arrives at this tournament in the clutches of an abnormally low ebb of confidence after a rare first-round exit in the 2018 World Cup. They'll be hoping to make amends in Munich.
Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels are expected to start the match, and the onus will be on Muller to create openings for Serge Gnabry and Kai Havertz, whose link-up play is a serious attack vector. Hummels, meanwhile, is the core of Germany's backline and will need to pay strict attention to Mbappe and Benzema.
The game kicks off today (Tuesday, June 15) at 8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT, and you can watch it all live, for free, wherever you are.
