The pair drew when they met in Brussels but with seven wins from their eight games so far Marc Wilmots Belgium side head into the penultimate group game with a five-point lead over their nearest rivals secure in the knowledge that a point will be enough to secure qualification for the first time since 2002.
The Belgians have emerged as many people’s dark horses for the world cup next year following an almost faultless campaign and Spurs star Jan Vertonghen says confidence is high in the camp.
“We have reached the point where the national team has certain expectations. There are certain things we expect and demand of ourselves.
“We know Croatia will be one of the hardest games in the group, but nobody thinks it will go wrong. We are very confident, and we are strong enough to win in Zagreb.”
Wilmots is likely to upset Manchester United by playing Marouane Fellaini despite an ongoing wrist complaint, but will definitely be without Vincent Kompany and Christian Benteke while Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is a doubt
While Croatia are already assured of a play-off spot a win would see them close the gap to two points but with the Croats playing Scotland away on Tuesday and the Belgians at home to Wales it would take a major turn of events to win the group.
Wales are currently bottom of the table after winning just two of the eight games so far and the country hit a new low last month when they lost 3-0 at home to Serbia.
Boss Chris Coleman needs a strong performance from his team to not only avoid the wooden spoon but strengthen his hand in contract talks with the Welsh FA, scheduled to take place once the qualification campaign ends.
The return of James Collins will certainly give the Welsh a boost. The West Ham defender is expected to go straight into the team after settling his difference with Coleman. The pair had been in dispute after the manager accused the defender of refusing to play for his country last month, something Collins denied.
Coleman made it clear face-to-face talks would be necessary to resolve the disagreement and, after discussions in Cardiff on Wednesday afternoon, Collins has been brought back on board, and will go straight into the team.
While Collins returns, the game marks the penultimate time that Craig Bellamy will pull on the red of Wales. The Cardiff forward has announced he intends to retire from International football at the end of the campaign.
Bellamy will start on Friday while Aaron Ramsey is expected to be fit to lead the side in the absence of Ashley Williams, a move which prompted the return of Collins.
