Whats the state of play in Group C? Last time was ripped apart by Germany out but Michael ONeills side have their fate in their own hands. A visit to the Netherlands, who have been straight back with a bang over the previous 12 months, expects on Thursday night however defeat because would not be deadly, even though it would be a bitter blow.
Leaders Germany could wind up leapfrogged by Netherlands at the end of the break, particularly if theyre held by Estonia on Sunday, although Belarus must beat Estonia too to stand some opportunity.
Coming up: October 10 – Belarus v Estonia, Netherlands v Northern Ireland; October 13 – Belarus v Netherlands, Estonia v Germany
Charlie Nicholas forecast:I think Northern Ireland are punching above their weight for a while. Steven Davis has held it together for a long time. Its a team that is together but. The youngsters are coming for the Netherlands, while Georginio Wijnaldum Memphis Depay and Ryan Babel have now shrunk. We know all about Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt in the Core of the Dutch Treaty. It will be a cozy night for the hosts. Northern Ireland do not normally lose many targets but I think they will be put to the sword here.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 4-0 (17/2 with Sky Bet)

In addition, it is a final throw of the dice for Scotland at Group I. Steve Clarkes side must beat Russia to have any chance of qualifying, however if they do not they could still attain Euro 2020 as theyre guaranteed a play-off location for winning their Nations League group.
In case Russia, who are eight points clear of Cyprus and Kazakhstan in third and fourth beat Scotland and also Kazakhstan draw with Cyprus group I might be achieved and dusted on.
Coming up in Group I: October 10 – Kazakhstan v Cyprus Russia v Scotland; October 13 – Kazakhstan v Belgium, Cyprus v Russia, Scotland v San Marino
Charlie Nicholas prediction:Where do we start here? But on a positive note, I believe Scotland are going to play . They must construct to your play-offs in February – . Them humiliated in the past international break in Glasgow. Everything Steve Clarke is trying to do I shall accept. It will be defensively along with a gentle counter-attack. It is the case that both groups are in, however Russia are very average. They havent secured second position but I think theyll be there or thereabouts after this.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (5/1 with Sky Bet)

Whats the state of play in Group E? Wales might be fourth Group E but things are not all as they look. A triumph over second-placed Slovakia on Thursday will take them par with a game in hand, and its near enough a game for Ryan Giggs also moving head t head to the night.
Croatias blip from Hungary aside theyve been consistent up in the top, but there is a reason they are very much in it and Hungary qualified for its last Euros.
Azerbaijan are out, despite having an eye-catching draw with Croatia in September.
Coming up in Group E: October 10 – Croatia v Hungary, Slovakia v Wales; October 13 – Hungary v Azerbaijan, Wales v Croatia
Charlie Nicholas forecast:This really is a great test for Wales. He should if theres a possibility of Aaron Ramsey playing. Gareth Bale is relied upon by wales but Daniel James comes in and done nicely. Slovakia are tough to forecast and youre able to get in them. Wales are patient beneath Ryan Giggs. Their counter-attack on and off the ball is so strong. The importance of Bale playing with is critical, but this looks promising for Wales.
