With the top spot in Group B on the line, the Netherlands meet Chile at the Arena Corinthians in São Paulo. Here's how the two teams will lineup.

The Dutch have made two changes, one due to injury and another due to suspension. With both Bruno Martins Indi sidelined with a concussion, Dirk Kuyt enters the lineup to play at the left wingback position, which seems highly odd but it's been confirmed by Louis van Gaal. It appears that Daley Blind will slide back into the defensive back three. Up front, Jermain Lens replaced the suspensed Robin Van Persie.

Jorge Sampaoli has made just one change to his lineup from the win over Spain. Arturo Vidal's knee has forced him to rest this match, giving Felipe Gutiérrez a chance to get a start. Alexis Sánchez, who has played extremely well so far in the tournament, remains up top leading the attack for La Roja.

Netherlands lineups (3-5-2): Jasper Cillessen; Ron Vlaar, Stefan De Vrij, Daley Blind; Daryl Janmaat, Nigel De Jong, Georginio Wijnaldum, Dirk Kuyt, Wesley Sneijder; Arjen Robben, Jeremain Lens.

Chile lineups (3-5-2): Claudio Bravo; Gonzalo Jara, Francisco Silva, Gary Medel; Eugenio Mena, Mauricio Isla, Charles Aránguiz, Marcelo Diaz, Felipe Gutiérrez; Eduardo Vargas, Alexis Sánchez.
