Venue: Stade Josy Barthel, Luxembourg City.
Luxembourg still have the fighting spirit despite being the bottom team in a competitive group A of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers. They will be hosting Netherlands at Stade Josy Barthel on Sunday night.
Luxembourg narrowly lost the first 2 games of the campaign, they lost 4-3 to Bulgaria and 0-1 to Sweden. Later they drew 1-1 against Belarus away from home in the game-week 3 given them a point. They have been impressive upfront having scored in 2 of their 3 games, but have failed to address their backline.
Netherland were among the big teams that missed out on Euro 2016 Championship and they haven’t been superb this time. They have accumulated 4 points from 3 games, having lost 1 drawn 1 and won 1. They are currently 3rd in the group behind France and Sweden. Netherlands may be struggling against big countries, but games like these are always a gift to them.
