Post their 3-1 victory over Northern Ireland, The Netherlands will now be looking to secure all three points against Belarus.
A win will be vital for the Netherlands to maintain their position at the top of the group since Germany is level on points with them.
Date- Sunday, October 13
Kick-Off- 9:30 AM (IST)
Venue- Stadyen Dynama
Belarus Team News
Belarus maintained their impressive home record against Estonia by going 12 games unbeaten off the 16 games.
However, their last game ended in a goalless draw to Estonia.
Belarus has just one win in six qualifier games. Mikhail Markhel’s men have lost four and drawn one in the process.
The White Wings might persist with the same eleven that featured against Estonia. A back four of Matsveuchyk, Martynovich, Palitsevich, and Palyakow will be kept busy against the solid Netherlands attack. Meanwhile, Yablonski and Mayewski will be the transition from defence to attack in midfield.
Netherlands Team News
The Netherlands have recorded four wins and a defeat of the five qualifying games so far.
Ronald Koeman could also persist with the same eleven which featured in the 3-1 win over Northern Ireland.
Memphis Depay continued his good form on the bitch and earned himself a brace against Northern Ireland. Luuk de Jong did come off the bench and score but might have to wait for a start due to Babel’s presence up top.
Belarus- A Hutar; S Matsveyvhyk, A Martynovich, S Palitsevich, D Palyakow; E Yablonski, I Mayewski; P Savitski, S Drahun, I Stasevich; M Skavysh
The Netherlands- J Cillessen; D Dumfries, M de Ligt, V van Dijk, D Blind; G Wijnaldum, M de Roon, F de Jong; S Bergwijn, R Babel, M Depay
Off the nine previous meetings between the two nations, it’s The Netherlands who has registered seven wins to Belarus’ two wins.
The Netherlands are on a three-match winning streak against Belarus and have scored three or more in those games.
Memphis Depay has another opportunity to be amongst the goals and could feature in the scoresheet yet for the Oranje. Depay has scored six goals for his side so far.
For Belarus Yablonski and Mayewski can be the transition in attack since they plan to sit back and hit back on the counter.
