THE TEAM NEWS

BELARUS

  • Any mathematical chances Belarus had of qualifying from Group C were ended by their goalless draw at home to Estonia on Thursday, but they will nevertheless want to put in a good display in their final home game.
  • Coach Igor Kriushenko is unlikely to make major changes from Thursday's game and he has no new injury or suspension issues to deal with.
  • Kriushenko started without an out-and-out striker against Estonia but Denis Laptev, Evgeni Shevchenko and Vitali Lisakovich - who made his debut on Thursday - are all options.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Gutor; Matveichyk, Martynovich, Politsevich, Polyakov; Yablonski, Maevski; Savitskiy, Dragun, Stasevich; Laptev

NETHERLANDS

  • Netherlands survived a scare at home to Northern Ireland on Thursday, scoring three goals in the final 10 minutes to win 3-1 and go top of the group based on head-to-head results.
  • Coach Ronald Koeman may be considering changes after a less-than-convincing performance against Northern Ireland, with the likes of Quincy Promes, Donny van de Beek and Luuk de Jong all in contention.
  • Top scorer Memphis Depay, who was the match-winner with a brace on Thursday, is walking the disciplinary tightrope having picked up his second booking of the campaign.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Cillessen; Dumfries, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blind; Van de Beek, F. De Jong, Wijnaldum; Bergwijn, Depay, Promes

Unavailable: Zoet (Injured), Propper (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Netherlands won 4-0 in the reverse fixture in March and will be hoping for a similar scoreline here to boost their goal difference in what is a tight group at the top. The Dutch have netted 17 goals in their five matches and they should add to that tally against a vastly inferior Belarus side.
