Belgium need just one point to qualify for their first international tournament since 2002 and with a star studded side, their golden generation will be hopeful of securing a result in Zagreb.
Croatia v Belgium is available in the UK and Ireland.
It is not available in Canada, Spain, Sweden, Croatia, Belgium, Italy, San Marino, Vatican City, South Korea, Japan, Andorra, Germany, Carribbean, the Middle East and North Africa as well as the USA.
Belgium’s star-studded squad has injury problems, perhaps as a result of so many of their players appearing for some of the biggest clubs on the planet.
Vincent Kompany has been ruled out and Christian Benteke is not expected to take part. The Manchester City captain’s replacement Thomas Vermaelen has also struggled for game time at Arsenal after his own lengthy lay-off.
Marouane Fellaini should start with his wrist strapped and all signs point to a powerful and talented front three of Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard for Marc Wilmots’ Belgium.
Croatia’s hopes have been severely dented by a 1-0 home defeat to Scotland but they are guaranteed second spot. no matter what happens.
Igor Stimac will have to do without suspended centre back Josip Simunic and captain Darijo Srna.
This should be a classic clash as Croatia look for one final fling at overhauling Belgium whilst the visitors have a naturally attacking side and will look to secure World Cup qualification in style.
Croatia also have plenty to play for as they could go within two points of first place Belgium if they can secure victory on Friday night (October 11, 2013) and hold a glimmer of hope to ensure an automatic spot at the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
