UEFA Under 19 European Championship: Spain vs Portugal: Live Open Thread

Who said football had finished for the summer? The Under 19 European Championships are in full swing with Spain getting ready to kick-off in their second group game against Iberian rivals Portugal. After a Jekyll and Hyde performance in their opening game against Greece, Spain will need to up their game if they wish to claim all three points. With just one change from the line-up against Greece, clearly coach (and ex-Barcelona back-up keeper) Julen Lopetegui has faith in his team to improve and prove their dismal second half showing against the Greeks was merely a one-off.

The match kicks off in around half-an-hour (19:00 CET, 18:00 GMT) and is being shown live on Eurosport2 and on GolTV in America. Enjoy the game!

Line-ups (Barca players in CAPS):

Spain: Kepa, Manquillo, Joni, Osede, GRIMALDO, Campana, Oli Torres, Saul Niguez, Suso, Jese, DEULOFEU
