Turkey is currently at fourth position at the table, in group A of qualifications for European Championship, only one points behind Netherlands. In previous match against them they got a draw, and they must try to reach third position, which leads them to play offs, in front of their fans. Turkey played in variable form so far, and they didn't showed some great performances. They must give their best in this match in order to achieve positive result and try to qualify for Euro 2016. They have goal difference 8:9, and defense is their biggest problem, they must try to improve that part of their game. They have negative record against Netherlands, and in last five matches against them they suffered three defeats and got a two draws. They will for sure try to end series of bad results against Netherlands and to made one step closer to European Championship. Goalkeeper Zengin, defender Golun and midfielder Altintop are injured and won't play in this match.
On the other side, the Dutches disappointed in these qualifications, and in seven rounds they got only ten points. They are currently at third position, they have six points less than second placed Czech Republic, and they now must try at least to keep their position and try to reach European Championship after play offs. They have imperative to win, and they must show their best and achieve victory at all costs, otherwise they can be eliminated and stay out of European Championship. They are in pretty bad shape, in last ten matches in all competitions they suffered five defeats, and they must improve their form, they have quality and experienced players and they can achieve positive outcome in this match. They have a lot of absent players for this match and coach can't count on defenders, Janmaat, Vlaar, Martins Indi and Willems, midfielder clasie, and strikers Robben and Lens.
Netherlands is favorite in this match, they are in bad form but they must win in this match, for sure they have quality for that, while Turkey is not in very good shape and they will give their best to stay undefeated, but I expect that Dutches will give their best and win in this match.
