With only four games to go for Brentford B this season, the squad are flying out to northern Portugal tomorrow (Tuesday 17 April) to get their final European tour underway.

Kevin O'Connor's side will meet two opponents in Continental Europe, FC Porto Under-19s and SC Braga B. The first match against Braga is scheduled for Wednesday at 4pm before the boys travel to Estadio de Pedroso at 11am on Saturday.

You can follow live updates of the matches via Brentford's social media channels. Our Twitter page @BrentfordFC will have live updates from the match, while the BrentfordFC on Instagram will be the place to go for photos of the tour.

This will be the squad's fifth full tour of the season after visiting Hungary, Germany, Italy, Ireland and now Portugal. The side have faced teams from 12 different nations this year including; Slovakia, Scotland, China, Belgium and Poland.

Brentford B also flew to Lisbon, Portugal in pre-season when Marcus Forss scored four goals in a 6-0 victory over Benfica B.

Upon their return to England, Manchester City are the opposition for O'Connor's final two matches this term. The first is away at the Etihad Campus on Tuesday 1 May before a return fixture at Griffin Park on Tuesday 8 May under the lights in TW8.
