Edinburgh and Glasgow face off again today, less than a week after their last meeting. Edinburgh came out on top on Saturday, winning 30-15 as both sides got back into the swing of things behind closed doors after a five-month hiatus, with the victory sealing a home semi-final for Edinburgh in the playoffs next weekend. Read on as we explain how to watch an Edinburgh vs Glasgow Warriors live stream today and catch all the Pro14 rugby union action online.

Edinburgh vs Glasgow cheat sheet

The game begins at 7.35pm BST this evening (Friday, August 28), which is 2.35pm ET/11.35am PT for fans based in the US - or a 6.35am NZST start on Saturday morning in New Zealand and 4.35am AEST kick-off if you're in Australia. Full TV and streaming details are below - but wherever you are, you can access the same coverage you would at home by using a VPN - save nearly 50% on the best today!

Today's encounter will also be played at Murrayfield, but the Scottish government has given Edinburgh vs Glasgow the green light to be the first rugby match in the UK to be played in front of fans since lockdown! Around 700 supporters will be in the ground to cheer on their sides and inject some life into the final league game of the campaign.

The disruption that has been caused to the Pro14 season means this weekend's round of fixtures will be the last before the playoffs. Edinburgh's win last Saturday secured home field advantage for their semi-final against Ulster, while either Munster or Scarlets will be hosted by runaway Conference A leaders Leinster.

From their side, Glasgow will be out for revenge. As well as ruling them out of the running for the playoffs, last weekend's loss meant that Edinburgh retained the 1872 Cup - awarded to the cumulative winner of Glasgow vs Edinburgh matches each season. Danny Wilson's men would love to get one over on their derby rivals today, and plant some doubt in their minds ahead of the playoff campaign.
