The teams are in and Portugal start with their big hitters. That means Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva, Diogo Jota and Bruno Fernandes are all in from the off in an attacking lineup from Fernando Santos. Manchester City pair Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo also return to the back four.
For Spain, Alvaro Morata gets the nod up front, with Ferran Torres to his right and Pablo Sarabia to his left in Luis Enrique's fluid front three. There are three changes in midfield as Koke, Rodri and Carlos Soler come in for Sergio Busquets, Pedri and Gavi. Dani Carvajal gets the nod at right-back.
Portugal have one of the richest attacks in international football, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Diogo Jota, Joao Felix, Bernardo Silva and Rafael Leao all competing for as few as three starting spots. A late equaliser from Ricardo Horta in the reverse meeting with Spain was enough to record a draw in Seville back in June.
Missing a few first-team players through injury, Spain fell to a surprise 2-1 defeat against Switzerland on Saturday. Though Marco Asensio and Jordi Alba combined well for la Roja's goal in that loss, the Real Madrid and Barcelona players' plight is indicative of Luis Enrique's current problems – that Clasico pair join Ferran Torres and even Dani Carvajal in lacking minutes for their clubs, despite being regulars for their country. Midfield three Sergio Busquets, Gavi and Pedri, however, form an in-form Barça unit that boss Enrique will look to base his team around.
The match kicks off at 7.45pm BST today, Tuesday 27th June at the Estadio Municipal de Braga in Portugal. Follow our guide on how to watch a Portugal vs Spain live stream for free from wherever you are in the world.
