A beautiful one-two between Cengiz Under and Burak Yilmaz sees the Lille Striker fire in from 10 yards. Lifeline for Turkey. How will Portugal respond?

STILL COMFORTABLE FOR PORTUGAL
It's cruise control for the hosts who are comfortably playing in second gear. Should Portugal turn it up a notch, it could quickly be lights out for Turkey who are offering very little.

TURKEY CAUSIING THEMSELVES A HEADACHE
Lapses in concentration are causing Turkey all-sorts of problems and they nearly paid the price when Diogo Jota took advantage of some poor defensive play, but a last-ditch challenge denied the Liverpool striker.

It's a second for Portugal. Otavio's pinpoint cross finds the head of Jota who makes no mistake from six yards. It's all going to plan for Fernando Santos' men.

PORTUGAL PLAYING RISKY GAME
Portugal are still comfortable but have been sloppy at times, gifting Turkey half-chances. If they continue in this fashion, they could be punished.

CHANCE FOR TURKEY
Kutlu gets on the end of Akturkoglu's cross but his header goes inches wide. Much better from Turkey who have been anonymous so far in the first half.
