Romania Prediction – Can Romania overhaul Sweden?

3rd placed Romania will be looking to grab all three points when they play host to 2nd placed Sweden on Friday night as the hosts look to overhaul the Swedes who hold a slender 1 point lead prior to the next round of matches in Group F.

Recent wins against Malta and the Faroe Islands were expected but Romania also earned what could prove to be a valuable point in a 1-1 draw with Norway last time out on home turf, and the hosts have another chance to add to their points tally against Sweden on Friday.

It’s been a reasonable campaign from Romania so far and they possess a reasonable looking home record of 2-1-1 7/4 which includes wins over Malta and Faroe Islands along with a draw with Norway but a loss to Spain.

Results overall at home though have been encouraging for Romania as they’ve lost just 1 of their last 22 matches in Euro qualifiers, but their last encounter against Friday night’s opponents ended in a 2-1 win for Sweden.

Sweden Prediction – Can Sweden see off Romania challenge?

2nd placed Sweden know that they just need to avoid defeat in Bucharest on Friday night to take another step closer to qualifying for next year’s European Championships as they hold a 1-point lead over Romania, but then finish off their campaign with a home fixture against second from bottom, Faroe Islands.

The visitors have suffered just 1 defeat throughout their Euro 2020 campaign to date which was an expected 3-0 loss away at Spain, but otherwise, Sweden have shown some solid form in picking up wins against Romania, Faroe Islands and Malta twice as well as keeping Norway at arms length with 3-3 and 1-1 draws, as well as holding Spain to a 1-1 draw at home.

Despite making a slow start away from home in these Euro 2020 qualifiers, Sweden have made the most of their recent fixtures against the ‘minnows’ of the group with wins at Faroe Islands and Malta, both by 4-0 margins.

Having also lost just 2 of their last 12 Euro qualifiers away from home, Sweden look to be in the box-seat ahead of this clash, with the onus on Romania having to take chances and press forward.

  • Romania have lost just 1 of their last 22 matches at home in Euro qualifiers
  • Sweden have lost just 2 of their last 12 Euro qualifiers away from home

Betting Tips Verdict
