  • Match Details – Romania vs Chile/ International Friendly Match/ Date: Tuesday, 13th June 2017/ Venue: Cluj Arena.

Chile will use Romania as the final test for the Confederation Cup challenges.

The competition which serves as an introduction to World Cup kicks off in six days and South Americans will want to grab a positive result from a friendly with Romania ahead of the trip to Russia.

Romania

The hosts, on the other side, won’t come in the game in high spirits since their World Cup ambitions suffered yet another blow on Saturday when Robert Lewandowski and Poland eased past Christoph Daum’s men.

Romania are now miles away from the second position in the qualifying group E and only a miracle could help them reach Russia.

Chile

Chile’s campaign is also on thin ice since they hold fourth position in the South American WC Qualification with four games left to play.

However, Copa America winners will be completely focused on Confederations Cup success at the moment.

The Spanish manager Pizzi will be without Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez leaving Arturo Vidal as the key figure on the pitch. Bayern Munich’s midfielder was a real leader in team’s quality displays in friendlies with Burkina Faso and Russia earlier this month.

Romania vs Chile: Head to head

Interestingly, the two sides have never previously met each other before.

Romania vs Chile: Prediction

It will be super hard for Daum to find the way to motivate his players after a defeat in Poland.

The hosts have been in a disastrous form in the final third having netted only a single goal in last five matches and we don’t see them as a threat to Chile this Tuesday.
