Romania vs Montenegro
UEFA Nations League
Date: Friday, 7 September 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadionul Ilie Oana (Ploiesti).
Romania have been in fine form through 2018 and they host Montenegro for their UEFA Nations League on Friday evening looking to build on a four-game winning streak seen since March, hoping to capitalize on the rivals recent woes and bag the first points in League C’s Group 4!
Wolves have beaten both Israel and Sweden in their two March outings, going on to outclass Chile and Finland in late May and early June, respectively.
They’ve been great in the attacking third and Cosmin Contra will surely be happy with their shape ahead of the important opener at Stadionul Ilie Oana.
Ljubisa Tumbakovic doesn’t have much to be happy about on the other end and we’ve seen Montenegro fall short of the World Cup Play-offs spot in Qualifiers Group E, in a group where many thought it to be reachable.
However, narrow 1-0 win over Romania on Matchday 7 just wasn’t enough, with losses to Denmark and Poland seen after, and the Brave Falcons struggled to bounce back – with a six-game winless streak now behind them.
Romania vs Montenegro: Head-to-head
- The 1-0 win at Stadion Pod Goricom in September was also Montenegro’s first win over the rivals ever.
- Romania have bagged a 4-0 win back in 2008 and held Montenegro to a 1-1 draw in Cluj beforehand.
- We have seen both sides enjoy rather narrow clashes over the past couple of months.
Romania vs Montenegro: Prediction
We will now back Romania to confirm their fine form earlier in the year and capitalize on the rivals woes, going for a Home win at good-looking 1.90. Montenegro have depth in quality but their form could prove costly at Stadionul Ilie Oana, if Romania can turn another tight contest looming their way.
We don’t feel we’re in for many goals and just one could see this one bend one way or another too, which also has us going for Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.50. Both sides have based their success on solid defensive displays and this has been rated a banker bet by many in the know already.
