Romania vs Austria
Europe – UEFA Nations League
Date: Wednesday, 14 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadionul Ilie Oană.
With just one ticket being allotted per group for promotion, race is getting heated for the top-most spot. And especially with the Group Stage entering its second half, teams are getting desperate.
Norway have been on fire lately, and it would take a monumental effort now to stop them on their tracks. Likely, either of the Tricolours of Burschen do not have the luxury to play lightly and drop points. Here on, each and every fixture is a must-win one.
As such, we can count on a fierce encounter this Wednesday.
Franco Foda’s team appear to be the better of the two, and are placed higher in the table. They have also been scoring a lot of goals lately.
However, they had lost the reverse fixture, and they also do have an inferior h2h record against this opponent.
Considering these factors, along with the high-pressure scenario and desperation of the squads – expect a goal-fest at the Stadionul Ilie Oană.
Romania vs Austria: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter was a five-goal thriller. Then, Mirel Radoi’s men recorded a 2-3 win on the road.
- Three of the former four clashes had goals from both teams.
- The last Foda’s men won against this rival was back in 2009.
- At home, the Tricolours have a 100% unbeaten record.
Romania vs Austria: Prediction
Radoi’s men had lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Norway. In the meantime, Burschen had registered a 0-1 win away from home against Northern Ireland.
Going on, Foda’s men had also won nine of their preceding twelve overall games, and they had scored two or more goals in seven of their preceding eleven fixtures. In fact, they have lost just twice in the past 20-month period.
On the road, they had won three of their former four match-ups, and they have lost just once away from home since March of 2019.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost four of their previous six overall fixtures, and had conceded a total of 16 goals from their last six games.
Considering these stats, it appears that Austria will dominate proceedings this Wednesday, and will give a lot of problems for the hosts.
However, Radoi’s men have a good record at home. They have lost just thrice in such fixture since November of 2016 – and two of these losses had come against Spain and Netherlands.
On top of that, they also do have a good h2h record against this rival, and they also had won the reverse match-up. And to pile on, they are yet to lose on home soil against this foe.
Consequentially, count on Romania to score at least once as well.
