Michael O’Neill, new Stoke boss, returns to Northern Ireland as he hopes a giant-killing can lead them to Euro 2012.
Northern Ireland did all the necessary dogwork, beating both Belarus and Estonia home and away in their first four fixtures, before getting dealt much tougher fixtures against Group C’s heavy favourites, Germany and the Netherlands.
One of the surprise packages of Euro 2016, their hopes of qualifying for next year’s tournament are hanging by a thread - at least through this traditional group process - and they come into Saturday’s match against the Netherlands needing to match Germany’s result (Jogi Loew’s men will simultaneously be playing Belarus).
Last month, they lost against both Germany and the Netherlands, beaten relatively comfortably 2-0 by the former, but putting in a spirited display away to the latter, going ahead but losing due to a late flurry of goals from Ronald Koeman’s Oranje men.
Expect Burnley’s Bailey Peacock-Farrell to start between the sticks, Leeds United’s Stuart Dallas to start at right-back and Kyle Lafferty - now with Norwegian side Sarpsborg 08 - to lead the line.
A draw is enough for the travelling Dutch to book their place at Euro 2020, but they won’t be at their strongest without PSV duo Steven Bergwijn and Donyell Malen both out through injury.
Memphis Depay is in excellent form, though, with five goals from his last five games for club and country. He’ll be their major goal threat here.
We recommend backing Memphis Depay to score here, and for superior quality of the Netherlands’ players to get the job done.
