A brief preview of the game:
Both teams have won 2 and lost 1. Very similar records against Portugal (NL lost 10-26, CH lost 10-28) and against Ukraine (NL won 12-54, CH won 54-18), but NL did much better against Moldova (NL won by 27, CH by 3). Both still have to play in Poland. So it looks like Netherlands has a slight advantage, especially with them playing at home.

Portugal has now 19 points and the Netherlands 14, with 1 round left. Isn't the match between them the first tiebreaker?
From this division Ukraine is relegated and Portugal plays a promotion-relegation match on May 20th in Belgium.
For the next round of RWC qualifying in November Portugal will host the winner of the conferences play-offs. My guess: Czech Republic.
