Romania – Spain, Euro Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR ROMANIA - SPAIN
Romania is playing very high quality football right now. Their U21 team reached the semifinals of the European Championship a few months ago, and it can be said that a very talented generation is coming soon. The game of the Romanians has nothing to do with what they showed in the League of Nations. In their last 3 Euro qualifying matches they have scored 10 goals.
Spain is in a serious series of victories. They are 12 points out of 12 possible and this match, together with the visit of Sweden, will be their toughest games until the end of the qualifiers, but everything in the Spanish side is ok at the moment. Enrique is no longer the coach of the team. Something terrible has happened to him personally and football is not his priority at the moment. Roberto Moreno is the current head coach. He has a lot of experience in all Spanish teams, but as an assistant manager.
Expert view : Spain, in addition to having a coach who has no experience and is not really planned to be the boss here, will also be without important names in the squad such as Isco, Roberto, Koke, Asensio, Azpilicueta and others. Their defense has also been replaced. Ramos and Alba remain the most experienced there. Considering the great play of the Romanians, their desire to win and the home side factor, we think that they will be able to score at least 1 time, moreover that this is unlikely to be fatal for Spain. Of course, guests are the favorites and it is logical to take the win or score at least. Prediction – BTTS at 2.00.
Spain have scored at least a goal in 34 games in a row
Romania have scored at least a goal in 16 of their last 18 home games for Euro qualifiers
