Previews and team Information Before the European Qualifiers of Sunday, featuring Wales, Scotland, Croatia, Belgium, Holland and Germany.

Team information: Wales are sweating on the fitness of Aaron Ramsey, that encounters a race to recover from the knee injury which ruled him.
In the event the Juventus midfielder is cleared to perform, Ryan Giggs might change his choices with Gareth Bale going to direct the line after picking up a knock against Slovakia, instead of Kieffer Moore, who the Wales boss verified will be assessed.

Condition of play: Group E
The equation for Wales is a simple one. A win on Sunday renders their Euro 2020 fate in their hands, with three points taking them to within 3 of Croatia with a game in hand.
Croatia and lose will seal their passage into next summers championship, setting up a shootout involving Hungary, Slovakia and Wales for this runners-up spot to playwith.
Charlie Nicholas forecast:This is another difficult one. I would not be optimistic of Aaron Ramsey coming back in, but Wales have it so for that reason, you may have to elaborate them. Croatia have gone backward after the attractiveness of this World Cup. Theyve stepped up a mark with their World Cup showing and also the standing they gained, but theres something about Wales that tells me they are going in the perfect way with Ryan Giggs, and I am expecting them to win this.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-0 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Team information: after serving a suspension against Russia Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay is readily available for Scotland.
McTominays yield provides an increase to Steve Clarkes group, which has been decimated by injuries to Ryan Jack Oli McBurnie, Kenny McLean and Grant Hanley, most of whom remain inaccessible.
Steve Clarke also verified Jon McLaughlin will start in goal for Scotland in place of David Marshall.
San Marino goalkeeper Elia Benedettini (knee) remains a permanent absentee for the visitors.

Charlie Nicholas prediction:This is the 1 game Im convinced on! Steve Clarke owes no favours. There was a good deal of people that said they had been injured and did not wish to play Scotland – a select few wished to play with and turned up – Andy Robertson was one of these. Steven Fletcher was a very long slave for Scotland I believe he is their very best number nine now, despite not being selected. That should change for the San Marino match.
Not a great deal of people will turn up at Hampden, but let Clarke attempt something and get a win under his belt. Ryan Christie and Callum McGregor have been decent so I would play with them equally, and with Fletcher, Billy Gilmour and Lawrence Shankland set to come , Scotland will win comfortably and also get the development they want prior to the play-offs.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 4-0 (4/1 with Sky Bet)
Team information: Romelu Lukaku has been ruled out as the Inter Milan striker appears to recover from a back injury, meaning after scoring off the bench on Thursday Christian Benteke may be handed a start.
Roberto Martinez can subject a experimental line-up with qualification ensured: Divock Origi, Adnan Januzaj, Thorgan Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Axel Witsel were among the titles that failed to feature in the win over San Marino.
Kazakhstan can no more reach Euro 2020 through the European Qualifiers, and of progressing to the play-offs Michal Bilek can look to make modifications still later enduring a 2-1 home defeat to Cyprus.

State of play: Group I
Belgium qualified for Euro 2020 thanks for their 9-0 thrashing of San Marino out time, and it seems to be just a matter of time before Russia join them at the finals.
A point in Cyprus will be sufficient for Russia to achieve a consecutive key championship but a triumph for the hosts would breath life in their outside probability of beating the Russians to spot from the group.
Kazakhstan will be leapfrogged by scotland over San Marino, a dead rubber match that presents the side of Steve Clarke together with the opportunity to build towards next years Euro 2020 play-offs.
Team news: Belarus and Holland have no new injury concerns ahead of Sundays game in Minsk, meaning Dutch regulars Georginio Wijnaldum and Virgil van Dijk are most likely to keep their positions.

Holland and Germany boast equal records on top of Group C and may steal a march on Northern Ireland by opening up a three-point lead.
Northern Irelands defeat in Holland has made with them a daunting job to reach Euro 2020, a task that gets all the more difficult if the best two conquer Estonia and Belarus respectively.
Marchs play-offs seem to be their best bet and victories in win both games open up a possibility of them qualifying courtesy of some recording that is superior, although prior to finishing their effort from 15, Holland is hosted by northern Ireland in Windsor Park next month.
