The Russia vs Denmark Euro 2020 game starts today (Monday, June 21) 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 BBC. Full channel details below.
The Russia vs Denmark live stream is on now and it's one to watch, as both teams need points to keep their Euro 2020 hopes alive. As it stands, Russia will progress to the knockout stages with a win — or a draw, should the concurrent Finland vs Belgium game go in the latter's favor.
Denmark, however, are currently bottom of Group B and will need an emphatic win to have any hope of progressing. As this UEFA permutations guide (opens in new tab) explains, there's no shortage of "What if" scenarios, but the short version is that both teams will be desperate for all 3 points.
Russia will likely be able to count on defender Mario Fernandes, who is believed to be fit despite ending Russia's game against Finland on a stretcher. Left-back Yuri Zhirkov is still missing, but Denmark sadly won't be at full strength either, with midfielder Christian Eriksen recovering from an on-field cardiac arrest in their opening match.
Russia vs Denmark kicks off today (Monday, June 21) at 8 p.m. BST (3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m PT). You can watch the full Russia vs Denmark live stream for free, wherever you are in the world — just read out guide below to learn how.
