Turkey take on the Netherlands at the Konya Torku Arena needing a win to overtake the Dutch side and move into third place in Euro 2016 Group A.

The Crescent-Stars currently trail the Netherlands by just one points. Turkey drew their last game 1-1 against Latvia while Danny Blind’s side lost 1-0 to Iceland at the Amsterdam Arena.

Turkey are expected to field a similar line-up to the side that drew against Latvia with the exception of Hakan Çalhanoğlu who could be replaced by Mehmet Topal.

The Netherlands will be without the injured Arjen Robben and Martins Indi who is suspended after being sent off for violent conduct against Iceland.

Manchester United Depay is expected to start but former Red Devils striker Robin van Perise is likely to be left on the bench again due to lacking match fitness.

Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder is almost certain to start while Southampton defender De Vrij could make his international debut.

Turkey have no new injury concerns or suspended players going into the game. Head coach Fatih Terim is however, expected to shift formation to a 4-3-3 with Şener Özbayraklı replacing Ozan Tufan at full-back. Tufan could be deployed instead in central-midfield alongside Selçuk Inan and Mehmet Topal. Barcelona star Arda Turan is likely to start on the wing with Gökhan Töre on the other flank and Burak Yılmaz up-front.
