What is the team news?
Louis van Gaal’s main selection dilemma revolves around who will partner the in-form Cody Gakpo up front: will he stick with Davy Klaassen and Steven Bergwijn or drop one of those in favour of Memphis Depay? Matthijs de Ligt could also come in, perhaps for Justin Timber.
For Qatar, Mohammed Muntari is pushing for a start after his excellent goal - Qatar’s first and only goal in this World Cup - after two substitute appearances so far, while Abdulaziz Hatem could also come in after impressing in the second-half against Senegal.
Netherlands XI: Noppert, Timber, van Dijk, Ake, Dumfries, de Roon, de Jong, Blind, Klaassen, Gakpo, Depay.
Qatar XI: Barsham, Mohammad, Ro-Ro, Khoukhi, Hassan, Ahmed, Al Haydos, Madibo, Hatim, Ali, Afif.
Netherlands win: 1/5
Qatar win: 15/1
To guarantee top spot, the Netherlands need a big win against the host nation and, judging by Qatar’s first two matches, there’s no reason why the Dutch can’t go out and do just that. Netherlands 4-0 Qatar.
