Netherlands lead the group with 20 points while Turkey and Norway are 2nd and 3rd respectively on 18 points each. This means that only a win will guarantee the Dutch direct qualification regardless of other results. With Norway as their final match opponents, it promises to be a hard-fought match for the hosts.
The Oranje could have secured qualification earlier in their match against Montenegro but they threw a 2-goal lead in the last 8 minutes to draw 2-2. Coach Luis Van Gaal will be keenly aware that failure to qualify will not be acceptable, especially since the side also missed the 2018 World Cup.
Third-placed Norway know only a win will do otherwise they will be looking to Montenegro to upset Turkey for them if they manage a draw. The Norwegians already drew 1-1 at home with Netherlands in the first leg of this group encounter.
A barren draw against Latvia in their last match underlined just how much Norway are missing the services of top striker Erling Halaand who is sidelined with injury. They will have to look for goals from other sources while the defense also has to be solid to help secure a win.
