Gnabry twists and turns as the visitors look to snatch victory. However, van Dijk does enough to deny the Bayern man.

84' 

83' 

Kroos tries to catch Cillessen out with a disguised effort towards the near post, but he lacks the accuracy to trouble the Dutch stopper.

82' 

Kroos is tumbled by De Jong 25 yards from goal on the far left. This is a good situation for Germany.

80' 

Depay surges from deep and slips a ball through for the run of Wijnaldum, but Neuer is alert and flies off his line to smother at the Liverpool man's feet.

77' 

Holland continue to dominate and probe.

The hosts win another corner but van Dijk's towering header lacks the power to trouble Neuer.

75' 

Are we going to have a winner here? Germany have offered very little since the break but could yet put something together on the counter with Sane and Co.

GOAL! All square! Depay does it again! The Lyon forward rifles a low shot into the bottom corner after he and Wijnaldum had created panic in the heart of the German defence.

62' 

A Dutch free kick from deep almost catches Germany napping. Wijnaldum's late run appears to leave him completely free to meet the right-wing delivery, but Neuer denies him with a stunning save with his foot.

It wouldn't have counted though. The flag was up for offside.

61' 
59' 

The visitors are enjoying some much-needed possession, but the Dutch look far hungrier and more determined to retrieve the ball now.

Germany have barely had an attack since the restart. This is an impressive response from Oranje.

It should be three. Sane ghosts in behind van Dijk to surge into the area, but sees his low drive beaten away by Cillessen.

Schulz pings a deep cross to the far post for Kehrer, who comes flying in with a thumping header that is too close to Cillessen.

Van Dijk does just enough to deny Sane at the other end after the forward looked to race clear on to Gnabry's through pass.

27' 

Another stunning save. Babel meets a Promes cross from the right with a thumping volley, but it's too close to Neuer who somehow pulls off a wonderful reaction stop.

26' 

The resulting corner comes to nothing, but that was much better from the home side.

25' 

SUPER SAVE! Depay nods down for Promes who feeds it through for Babel who races free from the left. The Fulham forward drills a first-time effort towards the far corner but sees it brilliantly tipped over the bar by Neuer.

That was a super move from Die Mannschaft. De Ligt slipped to allow Sane the space to take aim and that ultimately proved costly.

Kimmich drives at the heart of the Dutch defence. It opens up for him but he takes too long getting a shot away and de Jong gets back to make a perfect sliding challenge.

12' 

Depay takes aim with a 35-yard free kick but sees his attempt fly harmlessly over the bar.

10' 

Depay gets a second chance to deliver from the right after seeing his initial corner come to nothing. He finds van Dijk with his cross but the big defender can't get enough purchase on it to test Neuer.

9' 

The hosts enjoy their best spell of possession. It's worked well from left to right, but Babel's arced delivery is easily repelled by the visiting rearguard.

Van Dijk powers an emphatic header well clear of the Dutch area after more good German play led to a corner on the right.

In contrast, a Germany side now in transition have picked up just one victory in their last seven competitive outings. Die Mannschaft were booed off following a 1-1 draw with Serbia in Wolfsburg on Wednesday evening.

DID YOU KNOW? Holland have lost just two of their 11 matches under Koeman.

3' 

It's been a very bright and purposeful start from Germany.

Sane raids down the left and sees his deflected cutback fall for Gnabry. The Bayern man turns neatly before firing in a thumping effort that Cillessen pushes to safety.

Plenty of surprise on Social Media regarding Reus' omission from the starting XI - but here's Joachim Low's explanation.

19.25 

Koeman: "Everyone knows about the strong rivalry between the two countries, but there is also a lot of mutual respect there too. Winning against Germany always means a lot, of course, and it did wonders for the players to get those results against them in the Nations League. Now it’s up to us to give the same kind of performances against them and make sure we’re back at a major tournament in 2020."

Marco Reus is on the bench this evening, but was in high spirits ahead of the contest. He told reporters: "If we have the right mindset and work together as a team, then we have every chance of getting a result. We need to be quick on the counter, stay compact in defence and we have to want it. If we do that on the night, then it's difficult for anyone against us and I'm confident that we will win the game."

Virgil van Dijk: "We must worry about ourselves and not Germany. The Germans still have fantastic players, even if they might be talking over here about a crisis. We also had a spell like that where things did not go for us. That was not a good phase. But I don't think we are favourites."

19.10 

Holland warmed up for this one with a comfortable demolition of Belarus on Thursday evening and it's just the one change from that side tonight. Quincy Promes comes in for Steven Bergwijn.
