How to stream Germany vs. Netherlands in a key Euro 2020 qualifier

Germany had a less-than-satisfactory 2018 World Cup. They were one of the consensus tournament favorites, but couldn’t get out of the group stages, and went home with plenty of questions about what went wrong. You could say, though, that the Netherlands’ 2018 World Cup was even worse. They missed out on qualifying altogether, failing to advance out of a group that sent eventual champions France and surprise quarterfinalists Sweden through. Both teams are trying to recover from those disappointments with a key Group C matchup in Germany on Friday … but both teams currently trail Northern Ireland in the standings and only two teams from each group advance to Euro 2020. 

Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Germany vs. Netherlands, including what to watch for on the pitch.

Sling Orange + Blue

Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NBCSN (where many Premier League matches appear), NFL Network, FS1 and FS2, and local channels. (Sling Blue customers in select markets get NBC, where some matches appear; see if yours has it here.) If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. To add beIN SPORTS and maximize your soccer-watching potential, you’ll want to add either Sports Extra: Sling Orange ($5 per month) or Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month). (The latter also includes NFL RedZone.)

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from La Liga, Ligue 1 and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

Germany vs. Netherlands: Why it matters

With just two teams advancing from the group into the Euros, this is a chance for each team to earn a decisive three points. As the home team, Die Mannschaft may get a bit of a bump in front of a Hamburg crowd, but Timo Werner, who should have stepped into a goal-scoring role by now, has only scored three international goals since November 2017—including a scoreless World Cup. 

With FIFA Best Men’s Player candidate Virgil van Dijk joined by Matthijs de Ligt in the center of the park for the Netherlands, it might be challenging for even a team with Germany’s range of weapons to break through. 

It’s unlikely that Northern Ireland will keep their torrid pace and top this group, and it wouldn’t at all be surprising if both teams playing Friday advance to the Euros. But the fact that Northern Ireland has won all of its first four group games puts pressure on Germany and especially the Netherlands to keep pace. As they learned in the World Cup qualifiers last time around, leaving it for a miracle final game to vault from third to second usually doesn’t work out.
