Tip Reasoning

Romania are still in the running in Group C4, but they trail both Serbia and Montenegro in the standings. With only two games left, the hosts face a must win game when they clash with Lithuania. The visitors come into this one as the group whipping boys, and they’re already on course for relegation to the bottom tier. Can Romania pile onto their misery with a victory in this clash?

The hosts have six points from their four matches in this competition so far. While they lie in third, they still have a chance of going up. The main aim will be to make the play-offs for the Euros, which they can achieve by winning this group. With a visit to Montenegro in their final game, Romania have a decisive few days in their push for promotion.

Lithuania will kick off the Nations League in the basement tier come 2020. They are six points shy of Romania, and the hosts are heavy favourites to claim a win and send them down. The visitors will meet group leaders Serbia in the final match, so their chances of avoiding that fate seems incredibly slim. However, will they put up a fight regardless, or are we going to see Lithuania limp out of League C when they make this tough trip to Romania?

The visitors are in torrid form ahead of this one, losing six straight games. They’ve won just once since October 2016, an awful run from the away side. Meanwhile, Romania are unbeaten in the Nations League, having won the reverse fixture last month. They are heavy backed to come away with three points on Saturday, which would put them in the running for top spot. The hosts can’t afford anything but a win, so we’re tipping them to grind out a result in this clash this weekend.

The home side have kept a clean sheet in four of their last five matches at this ground. With Lithuania scoring just twice in their four games in this competition, we’re backing their forwards to struggle in this encounter. Given that the away side have failed to score in four of their last six matches, we think a home win to nil is the best bet here. We’re tipping Romania to win and keep a clean sheet, and keep up the pressure on Serbia.
