Romania vs Norway Predictions
- Sky Sports Red Button
- Norway have won three of their four Nations League games, including a crushing 4-0 success at home to Romania last month.
- The visitors have lost just one of their last eight away matches, winning four.
- Romania have lost three of their last four games and have won just one of their last five outings in Bucharest.
- The hosts are out on contention in League B-1 with just four points on the board from four matches.
Norwegians to Stay in Contention
Norway are fancied to follow-up last month’s resounding 4-0 win over Romania when the sides square off in Bucharest this weekend.
The Norwegians have to be seriously commended for their victory in October’s reverse fixture, in terms of both their performance and approach to the game.
Both sides had just suffered Euro 2020 qualification heartache several days earlier, but while the Romanians failed to turn up in Oslo, Norway came out and proved a point in emphatic fashion.
A subsequent 1-0 win over Northern Ireland kept Norway in contention to win League B-1 and they go into this Sunday’s clash level on points with Austria. Three points here should tee up a dramatic decider with the Austrians next week and we’re confident that Lars Lagerback’s side can get the job done.
On top of their impressive Nations League campaign, Norway have lost just one of their last eight away matches, winning four, while Romania have lost three of their last four starts. The hosts have also won just one of their last five outings in Bucharest, so the visitors look a solid proposition to beat them once more this Sunday – especially as the Romanian’s have effectively nothing to play for.
It may not be quite as easy this time around with Romania losing just one of their last 14 at home by more than a one goal margin, so 1-2 is our correct score prediction in favour of the travelling side who firmly have the wind in their sails.
