What Fifa World Cup games can I watch today? Denmark v Australia, France v Peru and Argentina v Croatia
Lionel Messi looks to fire Argentina to their first win while Christian Eriksen and the Danes hunt more success
Groups C and D provide the match day two action on Thursday and another night with three games is something to be treasured before you have to pick and choose what to watch with the synchronised kick-offs of the final group games.
But that’s a future problem and all you have to do tonight is tune in and enjoy.
There’s something for everyone, too, with likeable underdogs and the game’s biggest names all on the bill.
It all starts with the free-to-air game when Denmark come face-to-face with Australia. The Danes have a win under their belts, while the AFC side are looking for their first points in Russia.
Samara Arena is set to see a Danish win ($1.9) and the Socceroos hopping with frustration based on the odds. Australia to win is at $4.6 with honours even paying $3.5.
The game is the only one of the night on Viu TV (channel 99) as well as the Now TV World Cup channels (618 and 619). Kick-off is at 8pm.
Onwards and upwards, at least in terms of their average transfer value, for game two with two teams whose openers were defined by VAR penalties.
France, fresh from a win over Australia set on its way by an Antoine Griezmann spot kick, take on a Peru side still reeling from Christian Cueva’s missed penalty turning into a loss to Denmark.
The French are fancied to win again ($1.55) with a draw paying around $4. A win for the South American side is $7.
The game comes live from Ekaterinburg Arena on Now TV, with kick-off at 11pm.
And it only gets better as the night draws on. Argentina v Croatia is your reward for staying up. Lionel Messi’s side are expected to right their campaign but they were also expected to stroll past Iceland.
Around $2 is the reward for backing the favourites while a win for the group D leaders is closer to $4. The draw will pay $3.4.
You can catch what could be the end of the 2014 finalists from Nizhny Novgorod on Now TV at 2am.
