Romania vs Sweden Prediction
In the tournament, Romania has lost the game when facing the stronger teams in the group like Spain and Sweden.
Their opening match on the road with Sweden and the home match with Spain ended in a 2-1 score in each. Also, Romania has struggled with Norway at both home and away sufficing two draws from it. Moreover, 12 points in their form came from the clashes with Faroe Island and Malta that resulted in a win.
On the contrary, Sweden has lost only one match in the contest so far. With their opening win against Romania at home, the Blue and Yellow have shown a pretty good form in the table to stay close to Spain in second place in the group (W4 D3 L1).
Sweden lost only against Spain on the road in their fixture. They did how their strength at home when they kept the Spaniards at bay in the match with a 1-1 draw.
Swedish contingents have also tied with Norway in both legs. Unlike Romania, Sweden has won against a team other than the bottom dwellers of the group which is the host itself.
Since the host has been defeated earlier on their trip to Sweden, the chances of the Blue and Yellow to repeat the event is alive at Bucharest. Even so, the Romanian dugout has not fallen into depths when playing at home.
So, we can also expect the hosting squad to deliver a fight in the ninety minutes.
Apart from that, their previous h2h encounter was won by Sweden at home. Also, the score was settled in a 2-1 figure. Hence, based on their current form, there is a probable chance to see both the teams finding the back of the net in the game.
Overall, it is safe to go with a double chance and a BTTS.
