Romania vs Sweden - 15/11/2019 Preview

Romania vs Sweden should be one of the most interesting games in UEFA Euro 2020 qualification Group F, which will be held at Arena Națională, in Bucharest. After 8 matches Sweden has 1 point more than their next rivals Romania. Both can take 2nd place so far, however, that depends on this game. However, after that match, Romania will face Spain, while Sweden got a much weaker opponent – the Faroe Islands in the final game. We saw already confrontation between these two national squads this season. At the opening round of Euro 2020 qual. in Stockholm Sweden won the match with 2:1 result. In general, both showed strong character and created lots of moments. The home ground gave an advantage to Blågult, but no one expects how important these 3 points will be. Read our thoughts about this thrilling and very important Euro 2020 Qual.  Romania vs Sweden match, here below.

Romania vs Sweden

At the moment there is only 1 point between these teams. Sweden has better chances to stay after 2 last rounds at 2nd place in Group F. They already played twice against strong group favourites Spain, while Romania will face them at closing round. Sweden even snatched a draw in a game with Spain, or it would be more correct to say that the Spaniards did it. Sweden led the match after Berg’s goal at 50th minute, and only in additional time Rodrigo equalled the result and took 1 point from Stockholm. During this qualification, Romania lost twice against Spain and Sweden, so their result also very reputable. No one expected from such a team such a strong and great results. Qualification is not over yet, so even Norway has chances to take 2nd place. The Tricolours at home look extremely well with only 2 defeats against Netherlands and Spain since the World Cup qualification in 2017. Even in UEFA Nations League, they were only 2 points away from taking 1st place in a strong group with Serbia and Montenegro. Even so, they stood unbeatable after 6 games in NL.

Key players

Hosts will obviously play the next game with 2 strongest forwards of the team Claudiu Keseru and George Puscas. During this qualification, both scored 11 goals already. Moreover, Ajax midfield Razvan Marin will also be the key players for Romania. Sweden can’t brag with such strong results from team strikers, however, the main goals in the next match will be to take as much as possible from the opponent. They will try to play a defensive game and use counter-attacks often. Very experienced defenders and well-know midfielders should make everything to save their gates strongly.
