Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 8pm BST. BBC Four and BBC Four HD will provide live coverage of the match in the United Kingdom.


Both Romania and Albania need a win to progress into the next stage of the tournament, if at all, especially with the top two spots already booked by France and Switzerland. The new format in this year's iteration of European Championships allows the provision for four teams who finished third to qualify into the next round, something both Albania and Romania will be looking at.

Romania come into the fixture having taken one point from their last two games against France and Switzerland, drawing against the Swiss while losing to France in a heartbreaking 90 minutes. Patrice Evra's foul in the box had resulted in a penalty for Romania which allowed them to equalise but Dimitri Payet's screamer before the end of the contest saw them come out with no points.

Meanwhile, Albania, having been beaten comfortably by Switzerland, put in a good fight against France, dropping deep and defending in numbers and kept the hosts out for majority of the contest. However, Antoine Griezmann's header and Payet's goal late in the match saw them seal three points and seal a top spot in Group A.
