Commentary

FULL-TIME! Spain lose 1-0 to Georgia on home soil in their final friendly before Euro 2016, with a solitary goal from Okriashvili enough to wrap up a surprise victory for Weiss' men. Del Bosque's men enjoyed plenty of pressure, but couldn't find the cutting edge required to break down the away side's resilience. That's all that we have time for, we hope to see you again next time.
90' + 8' Spain win themselves a late corner, but the opposition goalkeeper is easily able to claim it. The referee gives a free-kick in favoiur of the Georgian shot-stopper, too.
90' + 7' Georgia wind down the clock by taking time over their goal-kicks, with Weiss' men close to what is a shocking victory on foreign soil. 
90' + 5' Koke takes aim from 25 yards out, but the Atleti midfielder blasts high and wide of the target. Moments later, a cross is hung up to the back post, but a nodded header is pounced upon by the goalkeeper.
90' + 3' Silva and Iniesta try to combine on the edge of the penalty area, but Kverkvelia slides in to frustrate La Roja. Moments later, Georgia counter, with Okriashvili opening play out to the right, but an eventual cross is headed away by Pique.
90' + 2' We're into the second of seven minutes of stoppage time.
90' + 1' Spain win themselves a free-kick on the left-hand side, with Alba being blocked off. Koke takes it, curling a right-footed delivery into the box, but Georgia clear their lines with ease. Moments later, Pedro drives down the right, but slides a terrible pass beyond the overlapping Bellerin and out for a throw.
89' Silva releases Pedro down the right-hand side, but Kobakhidze tracks back brilliantly to deny the Chelsea winger. Moments later, Silva opens play out to Iniesta, but Spain are forced to play backwards. The aforementioned Man City midfielder has been the only substitute to have a profound impact on this second half.
88' Nolito manages to win a corner for La Roja, which is flicked to safety at the near post. Koke then clips a secondary ball into the penalty area, but Pique can only divert a looping header just wide of the left-hand upright.
86' Silva scampers into the penalty area and to the left byline, but Lobzhanidze keeps pace with the ex-Valencia midfielder before muscling him off the ball entirely. Good defending from the Georgian right-back.
A. Kobakhidze
G. Navalovski
Georgia
84' Navalovski is replaced and hobbles off to the sideline for treatment, with Kobakhidze introduced into the fray for the dying minutes.
83' There is a brief stoppage in play yet again, with Navalovski going down in a heap. The Georgia left-back appears to land awkwardly, with Pique coming over to claim that the visiting defender is time wasting. A substitute is quickly readied.
San José
Yellow Card
Spain
81' San Jose picks up a late booking, with the Athletic Club getting a caution despite not being all that involved in the second half.
80' Only 10 minutes remain for Spain to try and spare their blushes, with La Roja being urged to get players forward by their home fans. But for a flurry of chances about 15 minutes ago, the hosts have struggled to test the opposition goalkeeper with regularity.
Z. Tsiskaridze
G. Aburjania
Georgia
78' Aburjania jogs off after a hardworking display, with Tsiskaridze adding some fresh legs into the Georgia midfield.
78' Okriashvili is found making tracks down the right-hand side, before the away side work possession out to the other flank. An attempted scooped pass over Bellerin is cut out by the Arsenal right-back, however. Spain respond with a counter-attack, but Silva can only win a corner from Lobzhanidze.
Pedro
Sergio Busquets
Spain
76' Busquets takes his leave, with Pedro his replacement. That shows that Del Bosque may just be throwing caution to the wind.
76' We're into the final 15 minutes in Madrid, with Spain continuing to bash their heads against an immovable object. Georgia are defending deep and in numbers, with La Roja appearing to have no way to crowbar their way through the resilient lines of the visitors.
74' Koke shoots from just inside the opposition penalty area, but his attempt is charged down by a ruck of defenders. Moments later, Georgia attempt to counter down the right-hand side, but Alba comes across to put the ball into touch. Time is slowly running out for Del Bosque's men.
G. Chanturia
V. Dvalishvili
Georgia
72' Chanturia comes into the game up top, with Dvalishvili taking his leave.
G. Kvilitaia
V. Qazaishvili
Georgia
72' Kvilitaia comes into the fray, freshening things up in place of Qazaishvili.
72' Spain win themselves a corner on the left-hand side. Pique manages to meet the curling delivery, but the ex-Manchester United defender can only steer his header well wide of the back post. La Roja are getting closer.
70' Alba is found by a diagonal ball into the penalty area, with Silva lifting a pass off the floor to find his team-mate. The Barcelona full-back manages to make contact with the cross, but he can only fire straight at the goalkeeper. Moments later, Nolito makes the same error, with Kvaskhvadze stopping a tame attempt.
68' Iniesta slides a pass out to Alba on the left-hand side, with Silva and Nolito then able to combine inside the penalty area. The latter slots the ball into Iniesta on the edge of the box once again, but the Barcelona midfielder shoots high and wide of the top right-hand corner!
66' Georgia break down the left-hand side, but a clipped pass from Navalovski is intercepted with ease. Iniesta slides a pass into Nolito, who flicks out to an overlapping Alba on the left, but a looping cross from the ex-Valencia full-back heads straight behind for a goal-kick.
64' Less than half an hour remains in this game, with Spain beginning to throw a few more bodies forward. Nolito takes aim from around 25 yards out, but the Celta Vigo man sends a skidding effort narrowly wide of the left-hand upright.
62' Del Bosque is cutting a frustrated figure on the sidelines, with his changes yet to take real effect in this game. Aduriz has had a quiet evening, with Morata still waiting on the bench for his chance to stake a claim for a starting berth in France.
David Silva
Lucas Vázquez
Spain
61' Debutant Vazquez takes his leave, with Silva coming into the fray for the hosts.
S. Kverkvelia
Yellow Card
Georgia
61' Kverkvelia goes into the book for a late, lunging tackle on Aduriz. The defender can have no complaints, as he even came through the back of his man.
59' Lobzhanidze is found progressing down the right-hand side, but the right-back is quickly forced back the way he came. The home fans are getting a little bit frustrated now, with grumblings audible from the stands. They need a goal to turn the momentum in this contest.
57' Spain continue to work possession from left to right, then patiently back across the field once again. La Roja are probing for an opening, but they simply aren't forthcoming. Aduriz has not had any service nor chances in the second half.
R. Kvaskhvadze
N. Revishvili
Georgia
55' Kvaskhvadze is readied for the away side, with Revishvili not being risked due to the possibility of the goalkeeper being concussed due to his clash with Busquets.
55' Play is stopped for a while, with both players receiving treatment to their heads, as both sets of physios try and stop the bleeding. It appears that Revishvili's jaw caught Busquest in the face, but either way the duo are in need of some tape and bandages to patch themselves back up.
53' Busquets goes down in the aftermath of a free-kick delivery, with the Barcelona midfielder being caught by a committed Revishvili. The Spain international takes a blow to the face and will need to go off briefly, with both the midfielder and his aggressor bleeding from the head.
51' Spain work the ball down the left-hand side, but a pass from Nolito is cut out by Kverkvelia. Moments later, Revishvili is able to gather up a loose pass, with Spain continuing to struggle to show quality in front of goal. A tame strike from Nolito, for example, is gobbled up by the Georgian goalkeeper.
49' Koke goes down in the penalty area while trying to shoot, but it was deemed that the Atletico Madrid midfielder went to ground due to losing his footing, rather than being fouled. Moments later, Iniesta drives into space on the edge of the box, before firing a few yards wide of the right-hand post.
48' Del Bosque's men have been refreshed at the break, with plenty of those inserted into the action needing to prove their worth to their coach before heading to the Euro 2016 tournament in the next week.
Koke
Thiago Alcântara
Spain
46' Koke slots into the midfield three, with Thiago taking his leave.
San José
Sergio Ramos
Spain
46' Ramos is another man to be hooked off, with San Jose given 45 minutes to impress.
Iniesta
Fàbregas
Spain
46' Fabregas doesn't take to the field for the second half, with Iniesta taking to the turf.
Bellerín
Juanfran
Spain
46' Bellerin comes into the fray at right-back for the hosts, with Juanfran replaced.
46' We are back underway in the second half at Coliseum Alfonso Perez, as Spain look to turn around a disappointing 1-0 scoreline at the hands of 137th-ranked nation Georgia. Del Bosque's men need another victory to keep their momentum strong heading into Euro 2016.
HALF-TIME! Georgia head into the break with a 1-0 lead, courtesy of a goal from Okriashvili, as La Roja's pressure comes to absolutely nothing in the first period. Thiago has hit the post, with Fabregas forcing a good save from the Revishvili, but Del Bosque's men remain frustrated.
45' + 2' Vazquez takes a terrible first touch, which bobbles out of play, which pretty much sums up the first-half performance from La Roja. They need to buck their ideas up and fast.
45' There are two minutes of stoppage time.
44' Spain work the ball from left to right, before Vazquez is released down the right-hand side. The pass from Thiago is too heavy, however, with Navalovski able to watch it out of play. The hosts have definitely been lacking a bit of quality in the final third.
42' Despite all of their early pressure, Spain find themselves trailing in Madrid. Del Bosque is now prowling his technical area, with a Georgian opener definitely not in any of people's minds at the opening whistle. Vazquez tries to drive down the right-hand side, but the young Real Madrid wide man is outmuscled easily.
J. Jighauri
Assist
Georgia
40' Jighauri takes advantage of a mix-up, breaking into the box at pace as a result, before cutting back an unselfish pass for his team-mate.
T. Okriashvili
Goal
Georgia
40' GOOOOOOOAL! JIGHAURI CARVES THE HOSTS APART! The midfielder cuts back a cross from the right byline, allowing for Okriashvili to stroke home a close-range finish. Georgia gallivant forward on the break, following an intercepted pass, and lax defending from both Alba and Ramos costs La Roja dearly. 
38' Vazquez and Juanfran continue to combine dangerously down the right-hand side, but the opening goal continues to be rather elusive. Nolito is picked out on the periphery of the box, but the Celta winger can only hook a poor effort 10 yards over the crossbar.
36' Narrowly less than 10 minutes remain in the first half, with Spain's control waning somewhat of late. Pique claims that he has been elbowed in the face by Dvalishvili, but the referee doesn't opt to go to his book to penalise the Georgia striker. The hosts quickly counter, but a cross from Juanfran is turned behind by Lobzhanidze.
34' Georgia manage to get a brief foothold in the game, with Kashia picked out on the edge of the penalty area. The midfielder takes aim with his second touch, but opens his body up too much, sending an awful attempt dipping and swerving some way wide of the right-hand post.
32' After a lengthy stoppage in play, Alba gives the ball back to Georgia, with Aburjania appearing to be alright to carry on. Navalovski curls in a cross from the left-hand side, but De Gea is quick off his line to pounce upon the loose ball and defuse the situation.
30' Aburjania goes down heavily after an awkward fall, with the midfielder attempting to compete aerially with Ramos. There is a break in play, with the Georgian appearing to be in some discomfort, but the Spain captain is back to his feet quickly.
28' Fabregas tries his luck from the edge of the penalty area, but can only shoot straight at the goalkeeper! Revishvili parries it, allowing for the hosts to keep their pressure on, with Thiago then curling a good shot onto the foot of the left-hand upright! La Roja are knocking on the door.
26' Pique slides in to stop a bursting run forward from Navalovski, with Spain still needing to be cautious with how many players they are pushing forward. Spain break into the box from the left-hand side, with Fabregas able to earn a corner for the hosts. It is taken short, before a second delivery from Juanfran is easily cleared.
24' The home fans are starting to be a little more vocal now, with that opportunity breathing new hope into their hearts. Juanfran is found on the right-hand side, before trying his luck with an ambitious shot from 20 yards out, but the Atleti defender lashes high and wide of the target.
22' So close for Pique! Vazquez races down the right-hand side to the byline, before clipping a great cross to the back post. The Barcelona centre-back is there to meet it, but he can only direct a header inches shy of the right-hand upright!
20' De Gea has been very sparingly involved in the opening stages, with the Manchester United goalkeeper appearing to be well on the way to an uncontested clean sheet. A few long balls haven't found their intended targets for La Roja thus far, but Thiago and Fabregas are starting to have more of an impact.
19' Spain win themselves a free-kick around 30 yards from goal, which Thiago clips into the box. Ramos meets it with his head, but the flick from the Real Madrid captain is from an offside position. The hosts continue to struggle to find the elusive first goal of the evening.
17' Aduriz breaks into the opposition penalty area, but promptly has the door slammed in his face by a covering defender. Captain Amisulashvili was there when it mattered, with the Athletic Club striker being subject to quite intense attention throughout this contest.
15' Del Bosque will be pleased with how his side have taken this game by the scruff of the neck thus far, as Georgia have only been able to venture out of their own half on one solitary occasion. Whenever the visitors have looked to be causing problems, Ramos and Busquets have been present to deny them.
13' Juanfran and Vazquez have been trying their luck throughout the opening 10 minutes or so, with Navalovski being forced to sit very deep indeed. The away side have no width at all, given that their wing-backs are being pegged back by constant La Roja pressure.
11' Jighauri is forced to go off briefly, after receiving some treatment due to a poor tackle from Busquets. A substitute is sent to warm up, but the midfielder should be fine to continue. Spain continue to move the ball around with patience and confidence.
9' Fabregas and Nolito try to combine on the edge of theb penalty area, but the former ends up firing wide of the near post from close range. Del Bosque's men are in total control at the moment, with Georgia clearly biding their time to counter at pace.
8' Ramos curls in a cross from the right-hand side, which Aduriz challenges for, but Kverkvelia heads clear. Moments later, Georgia head up the end in an attempt to counter-attack, but Mchedlidze drags an awful shot well wide from the edge of the penalty box. De Gea is finally involved.
6' The away side are already camped on the edge of their penalty area, playing with a desperation to keep La Roja at bay. Rushed clearances are already being thumped into the stands. Busquets opens play out to the right-hand side, but Spain are patient and take their time. Juanfran whips a cross in from out wide, which Lobzhanidze puts behind for a corner - which comes to nothing.
4' Nolito tries to drive down the left-hand side, before Thiago flights in a diagonal cross from the same flank. Ramos stretches at the back post to try and stab home a close-range finish, but fails to make contact at the vital moment!
2' Immediately, Spain look to take control of possession and take control of the game itself. Georgia are dropping very deep from the off, which will be no small part down to their awful recent defensive record. 
1' We are underway in the first half in Madrid! Spain will be looking to make it three friendly wins out of three tonight, which will be the perfect preparation for a successful Euro 2016 campaign.
Georgia substitutes: Dvali, Kakabadze, Kvilitaia, Okriashvili, Kvekveskiri, Revishvili, Kvaskhvadze, Dvalishvili, Kashia, Tsiskaridze, Tchanturishvili, Jighauri.
Georgia starting line-up (5-3-2): Revishvili; Lobzhanidze, Amisulashvili, Kverkvelia, Kashia, Navalovski; Aburjania, Dvalishvili, Jighauri; Okriashvili, Qazaishvili.
Spain substitutes: Casillas, Azpilicueta, Bartra, Iniesta, Morata, Koke, Pedro, Bellerin, San Jose, Bruno, Silva, Rico.
Spain starting line-up (4-3-3): De Gea; Juanfran, Ramos, Pique, Alba; Thiago, Busquets, Fabregas; Vazquez, Aduriz, Nolito.
TEAM NEWS: Navalovski and Lobzhanidze will try to offer some width as wing-backs, though their purpose may well be mainly defensive. There are few changes for the away side, with Okriashvili, Dvalishvili and Qazaishvili starting as a trident for Georgia. Jighauri will offer some drive down the right, with Kashia continuing in defence.
TEAM NEWS: De Gea is given the nod over Casillas, with Juanfran taking the right-back spot. Thiago will anchor the midfield alongside Sergio Busquets, with Lucas Vazquez given his La Roja debut on the right-hand side. Cesc Fabregas is preferred to Andres Iniesta, with Nolito also playing in support of Aritz Aduriz.
Georgia, meanwhile, have lost heavily to both Romania and Slovakia recently, and will be looking to be further whipping boys for teams going to Euro 2016 with an improved showing tonight. It will be tough, however, with La Roja looking to be in the mood for improvement during the upcoming competition.
La Roja are in high spirits, after respective 3-1 and 6-1 friendly wins over Bosnia and South Korea respectively, with Celta Vigo's Nolito staking a claim for a starting berth in France with consecutive braces. David de Gea will be looking to take the first-team torch from Iker Casillas soon, with various other bit-part players getting a chance to show their quality tonight too.
