Romania – Finland Today’s Soccer Prediction
These two national teams did not qualify for Russia 2018. Recently, however, they often managed to shine.
Romania is back from three wins in a row, the most recent of which occurred last Thursday against Chile, punished by goals from Nicolae Stanciu, Ciprian Ioan Deac and Constantin Budescu, which have made vain those of Guillermo Maripan and Lorenzo Reyes. Finland comes from eight consecutive useful results: it has exploited the possibility of facing Kosovo, Estonia, Jordan, Macedonia and Malta, but it has also been good at beating Iceland, which has now become an important football reality, as well as blocking Croatia and Turkey.
The friendly of Ploiesti, city of Romania, promises to be balanced. The hosts – coached by Cosmin Contra, former Milan right-back – will probably struggle to find space, because Finland should take the field with a cautious 4-4-1-1 and play with great tactical attention.
The probable Romanian – Finland formations
ROMANIA (4-2-3-1): Tatarusanu; Benzar, Sapunaru, Nedelcearu, Tosca; Cicaldau, Nedelcu; Rotariu, Stanciu, Grozav; Tucudean.
FINLAND (4-4-1-1): Hradecky; Granlund, Vaisanen, Toivio, Uronen; Lod, Lam, Kamara, Yaghoubi; Taylor; Vayrynen.
