What is the state of play in Group D? Previous month, republic of Ireland look after their comeback attraction in good shape with Switzerland and beating Georgia out next time will render them into sterling contour Switzerland and Denmark going head-to-head on exactly the same night.
If Switzerland fail to win that one, should Ireland take points in Georgia it would give them a chance.
Georgias surprise attraction Denmark last time outside gave his point of qualifying to them, however they are removed this weekend – worse news for Gibraltar, whove lost every match and are out of contention.
Coming up in Group D: October 12 – Georgia v Republic of Ireland, Denmark v Switzerland; October 15 – Switzerland v Republic of Ireland, Gibraltar v Georgia
Charlie Nicholas prediction:This is another difficult game for the Republic of Ireland. Mick McCarthy has was able to get some benefits, however they lack targets – . That said, they have only conceded two in that moment, which is remarkable. Richard Keogh is out, so who will associate Shane Duffy at the back? McCarthy gets 100 per cent from his players all the time, but all these are dangerous fittings.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
Team news: while Arsenal playmaker Dani Ceballos and first-choice left-back Jose Gaya are doubtful with hamstring strains Spain are with no Nacho and defenders Jordi Alba. Real Madrid forwards Marco Asensio (knee) remains a long-term invisibly.

Further down Malta and Faroe Islands are both back, with just 3 points to reveal between them – though that will change if they move head-to-head next Tuesday.
Coming up at Group F: October 12 – Malta v Sweden, Faroe Islands v Romania, Norway v Spain; October 15 – Sweden v Spain, Romania v Norway
Charlie Nicholas forecast:Norway are always a challenging act, but Spain have talent across the park. Rodrigo is doing exactly the exact same, nevertheless they extend from enjoying them together front and elect for front three alternatively, although paco Alcacer is having a fantastic time at Borussia Dortmund. Itll be another passing masterclass by the Spanish, however, I cant see past an away win.
