They will broadcast the match on BeIN Sports 1, which can be found at Channel 280 in high definition and 513 in standard definition, with coverage set to start at 4am (AEST) with a pre-game show and end at 7:30am (AEST) following a post-game show.

To watch the coverage on Foxtel, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package.
