It's all over and Spain have completed the most emphatic victory in this year's European Championships with a 3-0 win over Turkey.
Alvaro Morata grabbed a double, either side of a goal from Nolito.
Only two minutes of injury-time to be played at the end of this one.
Turkey are seeing plenty of possession now but Spain have all of their players camped inside their own half. There's simply no way through.
Spain were caught napping at the back there but it looks as though they will their impressive defensive record will remain as we have just three minutes to play, plus additional time.
CHANCE! Turkey almost get on the scoresheet as Yilmaz breaks through the defence but takes a touch too many and allows Juanfran to get back and make the block.
Spain have been just a little impressive, eh?
STAT! Another clean-sheet for Spain would mean they haven't conceded a single goal in their last 680 minutes at the European Championships, the longest run in the history of the tournament.
- OffJordi AlbaSpain
- OnCésar AzpilicuetaSpain
So just under 10 minutes for Chelsea full-back Azpilicueta to make an impression.
And now they're preparing to make their final sub...
Spain have nine or 10 men behind the ball now and appear to be content with just the three goals.
Malli tries his luck from all of 25 yards but it's never troubling de Gea. Turkey have been so, so poor.
One sure way of knowing a contest is over - a Mexican wave. The Spain fans are thoroughly enjoying their evening.
Not too much happening in terms of action at the moment as both teams go through the motions.
Turan will stay on, despite being booed by his own fans.
- OffCesc FàbregasSpain
The fact Koke is on the bench highlights Spain's amazing strength in depth. Fabregas is given a fantastic send-off.
- OffSelçuk InanTurkey
- OnYunus MalliTurkey
Turkey make their third and final substitution.
The corner ball is swung in, it arrives to Pique at the back post who appears to control the ball with his hand before shooting straight at the goalkeeper.
Substitute Bruno tries to get his name on the score-sheet but he sees his shot take a deflection. Spain have a corner now.
Turkey fans now appear to be booing their own player, Turan. Embarrassing, really.
Next up for Spain is a tough match against Croatia, who of course let a two-goal lead slip to Czech Republic earlier today.
- OffDavid SilvaSpain
- OnBruno SorianoSpain
Spain's first substitution sees Bruno replacing Silva.
The beauty of Spain's comfortable position is that Vicente del Bosque can rest some of his key players. David Silva is about to be replaced now.
- OffOguzhan ÖzyakupTurkey
- OnOlcay SahanTurkey
Turkey can't afford to concede again this evening, if they are to have any hope of progressing in the tournament. Their goal difference is already -4.
Turkey are preparing to make their second change of the match...
Silva dances past a couple of challenges before unleashing a shot at goal but it's well wide of the target.
Spain are enjoying all of the possession at the moment. Exhibition stuff.
A wonderful tackle from Caner denies Nolito a fourth as the Turkey player gets across at the last second to make a vital intervention.
Cheers greets every Spain pass now. Their fans are in party mode.
Somehow, Turkey can still find a way out of Group E, but they need to beat Czech Republic in their final game and improve their goal difference significantly if they are to finish as one of the chosen third-placed teams.
Yilmaz breaks into the penalty area in a rare Turkey attack but he can't find a team mate. He wins a corner but the set-piece doesn't come to anything.
Some eye-brows were raised when Morata was included in the starting XI. It's fair to say his selection was justified...
CLOSE! Morata almost grabs a hat-trick as he meets Fabregas' cross but can't find the top corner of the net.
- GoalÁlvaro MorataSpain
GOALLLL! Spain 3-0 Turkey. Game, set and match. Iniesta plays a deadly through pass to Alba who unselfishly squares it to Morata who is left with an empty net to tap the ball into.
A deep cross towards the back post is well cleared by Alba as Turkey look to exert some pressure on their opponents at the start of the second-half.
- 2nd Half
We're underway at the start of the second-half.
- OffHakan ÇalhanogluTurkey
- OnNuri SahinTurkey
Turkey make a much needed change at the break.
- End of 1st Half
The referee brings the first-half to an end. Goals by Morata and Nolito and Spain are cruising.
One minute of additional time to be played at the end of the first-half.
Here comes Spain once more, Morata charges down the flank and delivers a cross aimed at the unmarked Pique in the penalty area... but Topal makes a vital intervention.
Truth is, Spain haven't moved out of second gear yet.
- Yellow cardOzan TufanTurkey
Tufan brings down Iniesta as is booked. That's the third yellow card of the half.
Turkey are looking vulnerable now. The half-time whistle can't come quick enough.
The floodgates have opened. There hasn't been a thrashing at this year's tournament - could that change tonight?
GOAAAAALLLL! Spain 2-0 Turkey. Nolito, provider of the first goal, gets on the scoresheet three minutes later. Fabregas delivered a great pass into the penalty area. Topal fails to deal with it and heads into the path of Nolito who makes no mistake from eight yards.
He received plenty of criticism for a poor performance against Czech Republic but that is the perfect way to respond...
- GoalÁlvaro MorataSpain
GOAAAALLLLL! Spain 1-0 Turkey. Morata puts Spain in front with a lovely header. Nolito cuts in and finds the forward with a delicious cross.
Close, but no cigar.
CHANCE! Another opportunity for Spain goes begging. Juanfran does well to cut in from the channel and find Nolito but the forward doesn't connect with the ball and it rolls wide of the goal.
It's been a thoroughly entertaining start to the match - both sides have had chances - but it's still goal-less.
CLOSE! Nolito finds space cutting in from the left and fires a curled effort at goal... but it's just wide of the far post. That's probably the closest we've come to a goal.
They've already provided more attacking threat than Czech Republic did in the full 90 minutes on Sunday.
This is Turkey's brightest spell of the game so far but you feel they need to take such chances when on top.
Turkey win a free-kick in a shooting position as Turan is brought down. Calhanoglu has another opportunity to have a pop at goal... but he can't find the target as the ball loops over the wall and over the bar.
Spain have only conceded one goal in their last 10 games in the tournament, which was scored by Italy's Antonio Di Natale on 10 June 2012 , in a 1-1 draw.
OVER! This is better from Turkey - Turan feeds the impressive Calhanoglu into space but the Bayer Leverkusen player can't direct the shot on target.
A promising Turkey attack collapses when the linesman raises his flag for offside.
Iniesta is caught by a late tackle from Tufan and the Spanish midfielder looks somewhat uncomfortable. We've already had two yellow cards this evening but that was probably the worst tackle.
There are plenty of talented players in this Turkey team too and Fatih Terim likes his team to play possession football. They've seen plenty of the ball in recent moments to take some pressure off.
First-half goals have been a premium in this competition so far. Still plenty of time for Spain to grab one before the half-time whistle though.
Spain have dominated possession in the opening 15 minutes but have to yet to find the breakthrough. Turkey's stern defence has limited them to only half-chances thus far.
BLOCK! Turkey are living dangerously at the moment. Spain work the ball well as Silva sets up Iniesta for the shot but Balta does well to make the block.
OVER! Pique, the match winner in Spain's opening match, should really score as he rises highest to meet the corner delivery but he heads the ball into the ground and it bounces harmlessly over the bar.
Spain win yet another corner as Alba's cross for Morata is deflected out of play.
- Yellow cardBurak YilmazTurkey
We haven't played 10 minutes just yet and the referee has already shown two yellow cards. Yilmaz is the most recent player to be booked after he throws a hand into the face of Busquets.
The corner delivery is poor from Nolito and Turkey is able to clear.
SAVE! A decent effort from Morata from 25 yards out forces Turkey's goalkeeper Babcan into his first save of the evening as he parries the shot out for a corner.
Spain have been rather clumsy in possession in the early stages - they've given the ball away cheaply in midfield twice now. It hasn't proved costly yet.
The corner is played short to Silva who delivers a cross to the far post but it's dealt with well by the Turkey defenders.
The first corner of the game goes Spain's way after Silva sees his cross blocked.
- Yellow cardSergio RamosSpain
A major concern for Spain as Ramos is shown a yellow card in the first minute. He fouled Yılmaz who had done well to nick possession.
- 1st Half
We're underway at the Allianz Riviera.
FIVE MINUTES UNTIL KICK-OFF: This will be the first time that they have met in the finals of a major tournament.
TEN MINUTES UNTIL KICK-OFF: Spain have conceded only one goal in their last six matches against Turkey, however that goal did come in their last meeting in 2009.
Turkey have won only three of their 13 games at the European Championship finals (D2, L8). Fatih Terim's side suffered a 1-0 loss to Croatia on Sunday and they'll have to raise their match significantly to improve their fortunes tonight.
Spain are unbeaten in 13 games at the European Championships, the longest run in the history of the competition. They looked far from convincing in their opening game - a 1-0 win over Czech Republic - but Spain have a tendency to make a slow start in major tournaments and shouldn't be judged too harshly at this stage.
KEY MAN: In their opening match against Czech Republic, Andres Iniesta contributed his fourth assist at a Euros, the joint-most for Spain alongside Cesc Fabregas and David Silva.
PRE-MATCH STAT! Turkey have only registered one win in 10 games against Spain (D4, L5) - a 1-0 victory in a World Cup qualifier in Istanbul back in March 1954.
Fatih Terim, Turkey: "I have never been the kind of coach to tell my players to sit back and try to clear as many balls as possible. You can't just go and play Spain without trying to actually play. If you just try to defend and close the game down, they will eventually open it up. We will try to play our own game."
Vicente del Bosque, Spain: "The important thing is that we got the three points in the first game, and we need to prepare for this game without being distracted by the first one. We also have to approach this game expecting Turkey to make it really difficult for us. They are a great team who play great football – they have great players and we have to prepare ourselves for the difficulties they will pose us."
Good news for Turkey as midfielder Mehmet Topal (injury) and defender Gokhan Gonul (sickness) both feature in the starting XI, despite fears they would sit out altogether.
Alvaro Morata keeps his place in Spain’s attack despite missing several chances against the Czech Republic while Aritz Aduriz and midfielder Thiago Alcantara remain on the substitute bench.
SPAIN: de Gea, Juanfran, Piqué, Ramos, Alba, Fàbregas, Busquets, Iniesta, Silva, Morata, Nolito. Subs: Casillas, Azpilicueta, Bartra, Koke, Vázquez, Pedro, Bellerín, Thiago Alcántara, San José, Bruno, Aduriz, Rico.
TURKEY: Babacan, Gönül, Topal, Balta, Erkin, Tufan, Inan, Ozyakup, Calhanoglu, Yilmaz, Turan. Subs: Kaya, Calik, Sahin, Tosun, Sahan, Recep Kivrak, Köybasi, Malli, Sen, Mor, Ozbayrakli, Tekin.
