Hungary set to face Romania in front of the empty stadium in Budapest in the key match of the group D. FIFA has decided to play the match without spectators due to the racist chanting by Hungarian fans.

Second-placed Hungary, who suffered one defeat and secured three victories in their four games, are three points behind the leaders Netherlands and are equal on points with third-placed Romania. They have good chances of reaching the play-offs for the World Cup.
