Romania vs Ukraine:
International Friendly.
Date: Sunday, 29 May 2016;
Kick-off: 18:30 GMT,
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Italy).

Romania and Ukraine will play each other at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino Italy as the preparation of Euro 2016 continues.

Romania qualified for their 2016 Euro competition undefeated with 5 draws and 5 wins, scoring 11 goals and conceded just 2 goals in the qualification stages, they finished 2nd in the qualifying group just 1 point below the top spot. They are also undefeated in their last 4 friendly games as they drew with 0-0 Spain, 2-2 with Italy, won Lithuania 1-0 and drew 1-1 with DR Congo. Their strong point seems to be their defence.

Ukraine on their own part qualified for the competition through play-offs, Ukraine finished 3rd in the group C of the Euro qualifying stage, they were 3 points behind Slovakia in 2nd and 8 points behind Spain in top spot. They hit Slovenia 2-0 at home in the play-off and drew away with them which qualified them (Ukraine) for the Competition. They have been excellent this year, they have won the 2 friendly games played this year though with a narrow 1-0 win.

Romania vs Ukraine: Head-To-Head stats

There have been 5 games played between these two teams and all have been friendly games. Romania are slightly ahead in the h2h record, after having won 3 of the 5 fixtures and lost twice to Ukraine.

Romania have scored 11 goals in their 5 fixtures against Ukraine, who scored 6 goals.

The last 4 games between these two teams have seen at least 2 goals.

Romania vs Ukraine: Prediction

This is indeed a contest between two evenly matches sides and none of the teams can be seen as outright favourites. But Romania’s defence prowess has to be highlighted and they could prove a hard nut for the Ukrainians to crack. Ukraine can also boast of the same as they have let just one goal in their last four matches.

This game has a very high probability to end in a stalemate as most Romania games recently have been; including their last friendly against DR Congo. I would go for a draw in this game, but that’s a high risk bet, though it has big odds. A safe prediction for this match is to tip Romania to win or draw.
