Romania already knows how important this game is to them, if they lose in this game, they will be out of the competition and won’t progress into the knock out stage. Romanians need at least a draw in this game but a win for them will be a major boost as they will be in the same point with Switzerland who is currently 3 points and perhaps with France should they lose against Albanian on same night.

Meanwhile Switzerland will need at least a draw to keep their qualifying hopes alive or better say a win to shoot themselves straight into the knock-out round. Their next game is against the host nation France, which is a harder task than the one at hand. The 1-0 win against Albania in the first game has not been that impressive and the head-coach Vladimir Petkovic will urge his players for an improved performance.

Romania: Team news

The Tricolorii head-coach Anghel Iordanescu could handle the experienced Gabriel Torje the start ahead of the ineffective Adrian Popa. Their striker Florin Andone has also failed to impress against France, but he is likely to start unless Iordanescu decides to use Bogdan Stancu as a false nine.

Romania: Predicted Line-up (4-2-3-1)

Tatarusanu – Sapunaru, Chiriches, Grigore, Rat – Hoban, Pintilii – Torje, Stanciu, Stancu – Andone.

Switzerland: Team news

Vladimir Petkovic has no injury concerns and he is able to pick the strongest eleven.
Eren Derdiyok could start ahead of Haris Seferovic, as Petkovic often rotated his strikers in recent fixtures. Basel wonder Breel Embolo is also an option, but he is likely to start from the bench.

Switzerland: Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)

Sommer – Lichtsteiner, Schar, Djourou, Rodriguez – Behrami, Dzemaili, Xhaka – Shaqiri, Derdiyok, Mehmedi.

Romania vs Switzerland: Head to Head

These two sides have played in a major tournament group match before. During 1994 World cup second group game, the Swiss won 4-1.

They have played a total of 12 games together which have been shared among them as both sides have won and lost 5 games each, leaving the remaining 2 games to draw.

Their last meeting was in a friendly in 2012, a second half strike from winger Gabriel Torje earning Romania a 1-0 win at the Swissporarena in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Romania vs Switzerland: Prediction

The two side will be cautious in their game plan to avoid giving away full points to the opponents. A conservative approach will be deployed by both coaches, which might cause the game to drift towards a stale mate. Also, either team were not that impressive in their opening matches against respective opponents.

But, if Shaqiri and Xhaka plays at their absolute best, the Romanians could be in for a big trouble. Also, if the Swiss are allowed too much possession, they will in for a flurry of goals. The fact that Romania haven’t won a single game against a team of similar or higher stature since June 2015, lays the background for my prediction.

I predict a score line of 2-1, in an expected Swiss victory over Romania.
