Brazil look to secure their spot in the Round of 16 on Wednesday in Moscow, as they take on Serbia in the final match of Group E play.
In the United States, the game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on both Fox (English broadcast) and Telemundo (Spanish broadcast). If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch the game–and every other World Cup game–live on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Fox (live in most markets) and Telemundo are both included in the “Fubo Premier” bundle, which has a channel package that is largely tailored towards international soccer fans and also has World Cup live streams available in 4K. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch any World Cup game live on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch the game live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch any World Cup game up to three days after it airs even if you forgot to record it.
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of live TV channels, including both Fox (live in most markets) and Telemundo. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch every World Cup game live on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch the game live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials), allowing you to watch any game after it airs.
Fox (but not Telemundo) is included in the “Sling Blue” package. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial of both, and you can then watch any World Cup game live on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.
If you can’t watch a game live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on.
Following a 1-1 draw against Switzerland and a 2-0 win over Costa Rica, the Brazilians look like a safe bet to advance to the knockout stage.
If they beat Serbia on Wednesday, they’ll definitely advance, and they’ll win the group unless Switzerland really puts a beating on Costa Rica. If they draw against Serbia, they’ll definitely advance, and they’ll win the group if Switzerland finish with any result other than a win against Costa Rica. If they lose to Serbia, they’ll need Switzerland to also lose to have a chance to advance via tiebreaker.
As for Serbia, they’ll likely need a win to advance, but if they draw and Switzerland loses, they’ll be tied for the runner-up spot at four points apiece.
Ultimately, if Selecao don’t go through, it will come as a massive surprise. Considered one of the favorites to win the World Cup before the tournament, they are -275 favorites to win on Wednesday, and according to FiveThirtyEight’s prediction model, they have a 64 percent chance to win the group and 25 percent chance to finish runner-up.
Serbia, meanwhile, is given a 15 percent chance of advancing to the knockout round. It’s certainly a long shot, but this is the World Cup, and we’ve seen crazier things happen. Only one thing is certain, and that’s that this will be a must-watch game.
