Expert prediction

Mark Pitman, match reporter
As in the narrow defeat by Poland when his youngsters impressed, Wales manager Robert Page is expected to revert to a more experimental side having watched his senior players achieve FIFA World Cup qualification on Sunday.

Highlights: Belgium 1-4 Netherlands

The Netherlands were exceptional against Belgium on Friday night in their 4-1 win, but Louis van Gaal is also likely to make a few tweaks to his starting line-up, with Mark Flekken potentially replacing Jasper Cillessen in goal. The Netherlands have won all eight previous games against Wales.

What the coaches say

Rob Page, Wales manager: "We're confident going into games now. We don't hope to qualify for the World Cup or EUROs now: we believe we can do it, so there's been a massive change in the mentality. We're going in the right direction. We need to continue to develop these young players that we have, and it's only going to get better for us."

Louis Van Gaal, Netherlands coach: "If everyone does what they are supposed to do, then in every position on the pitch we have one player extra. It also has to do with the opponent – every opponent plays differently. And I adjusted to Belgium [for their 4-1 away win]. I adapted my midfield. And my midfield won the game."
