Turkey are the form team in the group having won their last three qualifiers scoring 9 goals and conceding none and they are currently unbeaten in their last competitive games.
Galatasaray striker Buruk Yilmaz has been one of their key performers scoring 5 goals in his last five games while his club team-mate Umut Bulut has scored 4 in his last three games, including a hat-trick in the 5-0 win over Andorra.
The pair are once again set to lead the line for Turkey and they will come up against a Dutch side that has conceded just 5 goals and scored 32, including 8 in their most game against Hungary.
That game saw Robin Van Persie claim a hat-trick and with it the record for most International goals for Holland. The Manchester United scored his 39th, 40th and 41st goals in an orange shirt to overtake Patrick Kluivert as his country’s top scorer despite being a doubt before the game with a toe injury.
Holland won 2-0 when the two sides met in Amsterdam and Dutch coach Louis Van Gaal wants his side to match the intensity they showed on that occasion as they bid to end a successful qualification campaign on a high.
“We put the opponent under pressure for the full 90 minutes. The effort and the willingness was enormous,” he said.
“It’s a difficult process to squeeze right from the start and then to sustain it.”
Should Holland beat Turkey then it would open the door for Romania and Hungary to move seal a playoff spot and with games against Estonia and Andorra respectively both teams will be confident of keeping up their end of the bargain.
Romania beat Estonia 2-0 when the two sides met in Tallinn and they will head into the game on the back of comfortable 4-0 win over Andorra.
Hungary meanwhile suffered a heavy defeat to Holland losing 8-1, a result that saw manager Sandor Egervori step down.
The result was a real blow to the Hungarian’s hopes of a play off and Egervori wasted little time in tendering his resignation, which was accepted.
“It is fair that I offered my resignation. It was a real blow for Hungarian football and it was appropriate,” the 63 year old told reporters.
“I hope the hard work of the last three years will not be lost.”
His assistant, Joseph Csabi, will now take charge of the team for their final game against Andorra.
Csabi should be in fairly easy night against the group’s whipping boys. Andorra have already conceded 28 goals in qualifying and have yet to both win and score in their 9 games to date.
Hungary won 5-0 when the two sides met in Andorra and a similar score is to be expected this time round despite the confidence draining defeat to Holland.
