That brings to an end Vavel's live commentary to this lively goalless draw between Portugal and Austria. I have been Brandon Sayer taking you through this game and until next time have a good night. 

Austria have got their first point of Euro 2016 which leaves them bottom of the group. Austria can still qualify though if they defeat Iceland on Wednesday. 

The draw leaves Portugal in third position in the group with two points from two games. Portugal's final game is against Hungary on Wednesday were if they win they will go through. 

Portugal have been held to a second successive draw at Euro 2016 after Cristiano Ronaldo missed a second half penalty. Portugal also missed a number of other chances and were left frustrated on the night. 

90+3' - The referee blows his whistle to end the game. FT Portugal 0-0 Austria. 

90' - The referee has decided to add on three minutes at the end of the second half. 

89' - Portugal substitution: Nani is replaced by Rafa Silva. 

87' - Austria substitution: Ilsanker is replaced by Kevin Wimmer. 

86' - Ronaldo puts the ball in the net but he is flagged offside. A beautiful free kick was floated into the box and Ronaldo who standing in an offside position headed it into the net.

85' - Austria substitution: Sabitzer is replaced by Hinterseer. 

83' - Portugal substitution: Andre Gomes is replaced by Eder.  

79' - Ronaldo steps up to take it and he hits the post! Ronaldo sent the keeper the wrong way but he sees his penalty come back of the post. It's just not Portugal's night

78' - Penalty to Portugal! Hinteregger pulls down Ronaldo inside the box. 

71' - Portugal substitution: Quaresma is replaced by Joao Mario.  

65' - Ronaldo hits a free-kick from just outside the box over the bar. It just won't go in for him tonight.

60' - Christian Fuchs receives a yellow card for a late foul on Quaresma. 

56' - From the resulting corner Ronaldo headed Quaresmas corner on goal but it was well saved by Almer. 

55' - Ronaldo let's fly with an absolute thunderbolt from outside the box which is well saved from Almer. Ronaldo made that effort from nothing. 

48' - Harnik receives a yellow card for a late tackle on Moutinho. 

47' - Austria go on the attack from the start of the second half and Ilsanker let fly from the edge of the box and Rui Patricio had to get down well to keep it out. 

46' - The referee blows his whistle to begin the second half. 

It is now starting to become a reoccurring theme for Portugal with them failing to take their chances during games. Portugal should be leading but if you don't take your chances then it will come back to bite you. Austria haven't really been in the game apart from a couple of opportunities. Hopefully there will be goals in the second half with both teams really needing to win the game. Stay tuned as we bring you the second half in a few minutes time.

45' - The referee decides to add on no time at the end of the first half. HT Portugal 0-0 Austria. 

41' - Alaba takes the free-kick and it was going in but Vierinha cleared the ball of the line with the goalkeeper beaten. Unlucky from the Bayern Munich man. 

40' - Pepe receives a yellow card for bringing David Alaba down just outside the box. 

38' - Ronaldo has a another chance but his snapshot is too weak and it is easily saved by Almer. 

35' - Ronaldo is starting to become a very frustrated figure on the field after being flagged offside when he was actually onside. 

31' - Quaresma receives the first yellow card of the game for showing dissent to the referee's decision. 

29' - Nani hits the post! Andre Gomes produces a lovely cross into the box and Nani with a free header sees it come back of the post. The Portugal players can't quite believe they are not winning this game. 

22' - What a chance for Ronaldo to open the scoring! A well worked move from Nani and Guerreiro got the left back in down the left and he cut the ball back to Ronaldo who put the ball wide when everyone was waiting for the net to ripple. 

19' - Ricardo Carvalho got up well to get his head to a Quaresma corner but it went well wide of the goal.

13' - Nani has another chance this time as he forces a good save from Almer who saved well with legs before Vierinha unleashed a good follow up effort from outside the box which Almer gets down well to save again. 

6' - Nani has a header from inside the box for Portugal which goes harmlessly over the bar. 

3' - What a miss from Harnik! Austria go down the other end and Sabitzer produces a wonderful cross into the box to were Harnik was and the striker somehow put his header wide of the goal when it was easier to score. Big let of for Portugal. 

2' - Portugal win the first corner of the game very early on. Ricardo Quesema takes it short before getting the ball back and he delivers a long cross which almost goes straight in but Almer clawed it out from under his bar. 

1' - The referee blows his whistle to begin this highly anticipated game. 

Both sets of players are out on the field and ready to sing their national anthems. This is a massive game for both countries so stay tuned as bring you the commentary from the game which promises to be a cracker in just under five minutes time. 

Austria team: Almer; Klein, Hinteregger, Prödl, Fuchs; Harnik, Baumgartlinger, Ilsanker, Alaba, Arnautovic; Sabitzer.

Portugal team: Patricio; Vierinha, Pepe, R.Carvalho, Guerreiro; Moutinho, Gomes, W.Carvalho; Nani, Quaresma, Ronaldo. 

The team news from tonight's game is in. Stay tuned it's coming up next!

We'll have confirmed team news for you at around 7PM BST but before that, stay with us as the build up to the game continues.

Austria predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Almer; Klein, Garics, Hinteregger, Fuchs; Baumgartlinger, Alaba; Harnik, Junuzovic, Arnautovic; Janko.

Portugal predicted XI (4-1-2-1-2): Patricio; Vieirinha, Pepe, Carvalho, Guerreiro; Pereira; Gomes, Mario; Moutinho; Nani, Ronaldo.

Austria on the other hand, Austria will be without defender Aleksandr Dragovic who is suspended for the game after picking up a red card during the game against Hungary. There could also be many other changes to the team as Marcel Koller goes in search of a response from the first game.

In terms of injuries for the game, Portugal should have a full squad to pick from if Ricardo Quaresma came through his few minutes from the opening game unscathed. Danilo who picked up a back injury from the Iceland game has returned to training in time for the match.

In the last four matches between these sides Portugal are unbeaten having drawn three and won one versus Austria. The last meeting between the sides was back in October 1995 when they drew 1-1 in a Euro Qualifier. This is the first time though that both of the sides will meet at a major tournament so it will be down who takes their chances on the day.

Austria will also be hoping their stars also step up after failing to do so in their opening game. David Alaba and Marko Arnautovic are the main two and if Austria are to progress out of the group they are going to need both to play up to their normal standards.

Portugal's main man Cristiano Ronaldo will be hoping things improve for him in this game after he wasn't at his best during the first game. For Portugal to go far in this competition they are going to need their star man to step up and now is the time after a poor first result.

On the other hand, Austria, who were tipped to do well in this group, were stunned by Hungary who ran out 2-0 winners with goals from Adam Szalai and Zoltan Steiber to produce the real shock of the first round of fixtures.

In their opening game, Portugal were held to a 1-1 draw against Iceland. Luis Nani gave Portugal the lead before they were pegged in the second half when Birkir Bjarnason scored for Iceland. Portugal will need to be better in this game as they missed a number of chances to take the three points which they may regret not doing.

Both teams head into the game needing the three points with both failing to win their opening games. Group F is a group that is wide open for all four teams but whoever can win this game will put themselves in a good position in the group with one game to go.
