Romania vs Sweden
Date: Tuesday, 27 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Stadionul Ion Oblemunco (Craiova).
Romania managed to secure the late second half comeback to clinch a 1-2 victory over Israel on Saturday evening in Netanya. Substitute Nicolae Stanciu was the man who inspired the victory by bringing his fine spell of form to the national team. The striker who has joined Sparta Prague this January from Belgian Anderlecht has bagged a brace in the 3-3 draw with city rivals Slavia Prague and he could well earn the opportunity to make the start on Tuesday against Sweden after scoring in the mentioned win over Israel.
The Scandinavians will come into the game in a different mood after conceding the late stoppage-time goal to lose Saturday’s friendly against Chile. Back-to-back Copa America champions have managed to score two goals against the stern defensive line of Sweden’s. Prior to that clash, Sweden have kept consecutive clean sheets against mighty Italy to go past them in the World Cup playoffs.
Even though Marcus Berg was Swedish top scorer in the qualification campaign netting eight times, he failed to leave an impact on Saturday against Chile. Instead, it was Ola Toivonen who has bagged team’s lone goal in a 1-2 loss. Overall, Romania have been enjoying a tremendous run of four consecutive wins on home soil before falling 0-3 to Netherlands in November’s friendly.

Romania vs Sweden: Prediction
Romania have scored an impressive ten-goal tally in four straight wins in front of the home crowd before the 03 loss to Netherlands.
Since Sweden have shown a bit more attacking approach in Saturday’s clash with Chile, we have to back goals at both ends as our main betting option.
Alternatively, the value is in the draw at the 3.10 odds.
