The match is over.
Northern Ireland may have started the group off in excellent form by winning their first four games – but the Netherlands’ victory in Germany has really shaken things up.
Northern Ireland may have found life fairly easy against the likes of Belarus and Estonia at the start of the campaign but the game against Germany showed that things would be different from now on in. This could be a struggle for the visitors.
The Netherlands managed to score four goals away from home against Germany – so things could get a little busy for the Northern Ireland keeper here. Memphis Depay is in particularly good form at the moment and would fancy a goal or two.
Head to Head
There have not been many meetings between these two nations – but the Netherlands enjoys the upper hand and won the last fixture 6-0 at home in 2012.
Netherlands to win
Northern Ireland’s early victories did give this group a curious look – but now it does seem like it will be a fight between old rivals Germany and the Netherlands for who tops the table. There is no room for error however, so Ronald Koeman will be making sure his side is ready for this one.
