The hosts are guaranteed a World Cup play-off spot in March through their Nations League results, but Rob Page's side still need to secure a point at least against the world's top-ranked team tonight to potentially secure second spot in the group and home semi-final advantage in the playoffs.

Wales's star man Gareth Bale will not start this decisive game, after coming off after 45 minutes in their 5-1 victory over Belarus at the weekend, with the talisman still nursing a long-standing hamstring issue.

While Bale's absence is a blow, Page will nevertheless be relived that the visitors will themselves be missing Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku through injury, while Martinez is also being tipped to drop Eden Hazard down to the bench.
