Spain Starting XI: De Gea, Nacho, Piqué, Ramos, Alba, Busquets, Iniesta, Koke, Isco, Silva, Costa.
Portugal Starting XI (To Be Confirmed): Patricio, Soares, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro, Silva, Moutinho, Carvalho, Fernandes, Guedes, Ronaldo.
Spain have the deeper team here and will be expected to beat Portugal. However, they've been under a lot of pressure lately because of the sudden departure of coach Julen Lopetegui, who was sacked after his deal with Real Madrid was announced this week.
