Spain will be without recent Premier League winner Aymeric Laporte as he pulled out of the squad through injury. Barcelona’s wonderkid Pedri is also a notable absence on the sidelines.

Similarly for the opposition, another Manchester City centre-half is absent in the form of Ruben Dias. Other than that, Portugal have their full line-up at their disposal.

Neither side have any injuries they need to worry about.

Spain Predicted XI:
Simon; Azpilicueta, E Garcia, P Torres, Alba; Thiago, Busquets, Koke; Gavi, Morata, F Torres
