Romania vs Belarus
Date: 11 November 2020, Wednesday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadionul Ilie Oana (Ploiești).
Romania will be looking for a win and some inspiration to take into the final round of UNL fixtures when they welcome Belarus for a friendly on Wednesday.
The Romanians were looking good in September when they drew Northern Ireland and defeated Austria. But things took a u-turn in October as they lost three on the bounce including the Euro qualifier to Iceland and then to Norway and Austria in UNL.
Mirel Radoi’s team have a lot to cover this month as they are 5 points behind Austria and Norway in the UNL group.
On the other hand, Belarus are looking good to finish at the top of their group having bagged 7 points from the 4 games, though they might have to win their remaining 2 games.
Also, the calendar year 2020 is looking good for the Belarussians as they won 4, drew 1 and lost 2 of the 7 games so far after winning just 1 of the 10 in 2019. However they haven’t met a team ranked as high as Romania this year.
Romania vs Belarus Head-to-head
Romania are unbeaten in the 5 h2h games against Belarus with 3 wins and 2 draws.
There have been over 1.5 goals by the Tricolores in 4 of those 5 games.
Their last meeting was in the qualifying round of Euro 2012 and the pair of fixtures ended in stalemates, 0-0 & 2-2.
Romania vs Belarus Prediction
Looking at the form table, Romania is in desperate need for a win and with 5 days left for the UNL round of fixtures, they are supposed to go for the victory here. Belarus tends to do well against lower ranked and depleted sides, but this is a different test for them and a test they normally fail. So, we go with the home win as the primary pick, it is a decent price at 1.50 odd.
For the second bet, we will take the hosts to score at least 2 goals here. Despite their poor results, they have shown plenty of promise going forward and this is their strongest area and could put a couple past the low ranked visitors.
