We have been informed there is a large planned demonstration and strike in Lisbon today.
Our travelling supporters are advised to leave the centre by 4pm (local time) to avoid getting caught up in the demonstration and risk missing the match.
This is a peaceful workers' union demonstration against the government. The demonstration is due to gather in the city centre by the official UEFA fan zone in Rossia Square at 5pm.
The visitors' section of the ground is open from 3.55pm, so ticket-holding supporters will be able to gain access in good time ahead of kick-off at 5.55pm.
Enjoy the match and as always, thanks for your support.
