The Spain vs Sweden Euro 2020 game starts today (Monday, June 14) 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 Spain vs Sweden live stream is on now, and it's set to be another match brimming with anticipation and maybe a little angst.
Three-time winners Spain will be looking to make a successful start to Euro 2020 as they bid for a record fourth European Championship. They'll have home advantage on their side, with all of their group games taking place in Seville, plus a very promising crop of young players that includes the likes of Adama Traoré, Ferran Torres and the 18-year-old Barcelona star Pedri.
Gerard Moreno, meanwhile, will pose a major threat to any defence in the competition and old hands such as César Azpilicueta and Jordi Alba should keep things tight at the other end.

Unlike their Spanish counterparts, Sweden arrive at the Euros without being one of the favorites, but with perhaps more confidence than in previous tournaments. Having reached the quarter-finals at the 2018 World Cup, they proceeded to deliver a lacklustre performance and lost to England — but they're arguably a stronger side three years on.
Striker Alexander Isak, who is arguably Sweden's star man, will be one to watch for the tournament ahead, netting plenty of goals for his domestic team, Real Sociedad, and hopefully able to translate that onto the bigger international stage.
Though you'd be unwise to bet against Spain in this fixture, especially with the home advantage, Sweden are tricky customers and it's sure to be a fascinating match to stream. It all kicks off today, Monday, June 14 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.
