How to Watch the U.S. vs. the Netherlands at the World Cup

The United States successfully navigated the group stage at the World Cup in Qatar with a 1-1 draw with Wales, a scoreless draw with England and a 1-0 win over Iran. The Americans are now playing in the knockout stage and will meet the Netherlands in the round of 16.

Saturday at 10 a.m. Eastern time. That’s 6 p.m. in Qatar.

The game will be broadcast on Fox (in English) and on Telemundo (in Spanish).

To stream the English-language broadcast, you’ll need a subscription to a streaming package that includes Fox, such as YouTube TV, Hulu, SlingTV or Fubo. (Some offer free trials.) Tubi will stream the game for free, but only as a replay, after the game is over.

Peacock will stream the Spanish-language broadcast. (Peacock Premium is $4.99 a month.)

Betting odds, which factor in how some experts and prognosticators think about a matchup, favor the Netherlands. In Las Vegas parlance, the Netherlands is -215 to advance and the United States is +200. That means you would need to bet $215 to win $100 on the Netherlands and $100 to win $200 on the Americans.

That translates to roughly a 70 percent chance of victory for the Netherlands and a 30 percent chance for the United States, at least according to bettors and bookmakers.

Unlike the group stage games, knockout games cannot end in a draw. If the score is tied after the normal 90 minutes, the teams will play 30 minutes more. Should the score still be tied at that point, the teams will take five penalty kicks each. Whichever team converts more of them will advance.

The U.S.-Netherlands winner will move on to a quarterfinal game on Friday, Dec. 9, against the winner of a Saturday game between Argentina and Australia.

At this stage, the World Cup is now a win-or-go-home tournament, not unlike an N.C.A.A. basketball tournament. Here is the bracket.

This is the 11th World Cup for the U.S. men. The team’s best performance came in the first World Cup in 1930, held in Uruguay, when it made the semifinals. That tournament was missing several top teams from Europe, however. The best recent performance was a quarterfinal berth in 2002. (The U.S. women have won four World Cups, including the inaugural tournament in 1991.)
