Roberto Martinez could utilise a three-man defence once more, with Vincent Kompany featuring despite a lack of game time for Manchester City. Yannick Carrasco and Thomas Meunier would feature again on the flanks if that is the case, with Mousa Dembele possibly partnering up with Axel Witsel in the middle of the park. Martinez has a decision to make on his lead striker, with Romelu Lukaku possibly given the nod ahead of Christian Benteke.

Maarten Stekelenburg is expected to start for the Netherlands between the sticks, though Jasper Cillessen is pushing for a place in the XI. Jeremain Lens could start following his good form for Fenerbahce, with Vincent Janssen and Memphis Depay completing the attack. Rick Karsdorp is injured, as is Arjen Robben.

Netherlands’ recent form has been patchy, with just two wins from their last five matches. Danny Blind will hope the meeting with Belgium can spark his team into some form.

Belgium look to have quickly adjusted to the demands of Roberto Martinez, with three wins from three, with 13 goals scored and none conceded. However, the meeting with Netherlands will be a tough test to navigate.

This has the potential to be an entertaining encounter at the Amsterdam ArenA, with a draw on the cards.
