Luxembourg v Netherlands – Sunday 17:00, Sky Sports 1
On Sunday night Luxembourg will be looking to withstand a Dutch side hungry for competitive success after missing out on a trip to France this summer. Luxembourg remain rooted to the foot of Group A after taking just one point from their first three games, and the Netherlands will be looking to gain a foothold in the group after early slip-ups have left them chasing France and Sweden.
The two teams have both struggled with player availability in the run-up to the clash. Netherlands will be seeking to banish the inconsistency that saw them concede a late midweek equaliser to Belgium and a solo Pogba goal in the recent loss to France, and will look to the returning Arjen Robben in the absence of the concussed Janssen to make an impact against the minnows, who are missing their starting keeper following injury.
Despite the disparity in size and prestige, this will be no walkover for the visitors. Luxembourg will be looking to improve on a run that has seen them score in four of their last five games but nonetheless lose four of these. The Netherlands have failed to win by more than two goals against low-ranking opponents since thumping Latvia 6-0 almost exactly two years ago. Interestingly Robben has appeared in just two of their 19 games since then – lasting 30 minutes before an injury against Iceland and scoring twice in a 3-2 win over Wales – and his absences have coincided with the Netherlands’ woeful run of form. With their star player back we expect the Dutch to look much more dangerous but with just one clean sheet in 15 the minnows will fancy their chances of a consolation and 3.4 about Netherlands to win and Both Teams To Score looks value, with the Netherlands 3-1 correct score worth a small punt at 13.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
