Serbia vs. Denmark live stream: Time, TV schedule and how to watch Euro 2016 qualifying online

Serbia will be looking to bounce back from their points deduction with a win at home to Denmark on Friday.

Srdjan Stevanovic

Euro 2016 qualification may have only just begun, but already Group I is shaping up to be one of the most closely-fought. After three games, Denmark and Albania sit joint-top of the group, albeit having played a game more than Portugal, Serbia and Armenia. However, the Danes would really put themselves in a commanding position if they win away in Serbia on Friday, with Dick Advocaat's side currently sitting joint-bottom with Armenia.

However, it's worth remembering that Serbia are only occupying such a lowly spot thanks to a three point deduction they were handed in the aftermath of the riot that was their abandoned game at home to Albania. Had they not suffered such a punishment, they'd be joint-top. On squad alone, Advocaat's side is probably stronger than Denmark's and their home advantage ensures they'll head into this match with every intention of winning and getting their qualification campaign back on track.

Key player - Nemanja Matić (Serbia)

Nemanja Matić has established himself as one of the Premier League's top midfielders since returning to Chelsea last season, and the 26-year-old is now one of the key cogs in Advocaat's midfield, too. Capable of breaking up opposition attacks and turning defence to attack in an instant with long, accurate passes, he's a very capable player, and probably Serbia's best.

Key question - Will Denmark's defence hold up?

Though Serbia are a pretty solid team at the back, they've also got plenty of attacking talent going forward -- so much so that Advocaat has left AS Roma attacker Adem Ljajić at home, despite his recent impressive form for the giallorossi. If Denmark want to stand any chance of picking up a point or three from this game, they'll have to hope their unconvincing defence holds firm.
