Netherlands (@1.03) vs Romania (@9.5)

Our Prediction:

Netherlands will win

Netherlands – Romania Match Prediction | 23-08-2019

Expert Verdict: The Dutch side started qualification slowly, and they were ultimately made to pay the price for that. Against Romania away from home shouldn't be too big of an ask. Now, though, it will have to be channeled toward friendlies as they build for the next tournament. Of late, though, they have been playing well and could have been viewed as a favorite next summer if they had continued their upward momentum.

We will thus take the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.72 odds. Alternatively, well back Romania not to lose at 1.60 with all these absences in the Chilean squad. On the other hand, Romania might struggle to create in the final third here knowing that Chiles defensive line allowed just a single goal in last two friendlies with Sweden and Denmark.

Prediction Romania - Netherlands

The highly rated shot-stopper joined the most famous club on domestic stage Steaua via Juventus Bucuresti and Gloria Bistrita and he would go on to spend next seven years in the capital, making over 130 league appearances and featuring in over 40 matches in European competitions. Anton Ciprian Tatarusanu is one of Romanias most famous goalkeeper at the moment, and he has surprisingly spent the majority of his career up to date in his native country.

The goals make it just four for him in 22 appearances, meaning he doubled it against the country of his employing club, Karakbukspor. Two goals on either side of half time for winger Gheorghe Grozav gave Romania a very nice win over Turkey on Thursday. He has scored just two goals for his new club this season since joining, but he picked up his form at the right time for all involved.

Romania vs Netherlands PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 14/11/2017

The Dutch are still a quality team in the grand scheme of things and have actually been playing well of late. It might have been too late to rescue their World Cup hopes, but they still have the future to build for and to. Just because the Netherlands have come up short in qualification doesn't mean that it's not worthwhile to play them, or that it means little to take results off of them, after all.

In previous three meetings between the two teams Netherlands emerged triumphant, but we believe that the two teams will share the spoils in Bucharest. After failing to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, Netherlands now begin preparations for EURO 2020 qualifiers. Their rivals Romania failed to impress in their World Cup qualifying group as well and they are ready for a new beginning. Arjen Robben is no longer part of the Dutch national team, but coach Dick Advocaat has a number of young and talented players to choose from. The Oranje take on Romania in their last game of the year and they certainly want to make amends for the unsuccessful World Cup qualifying campaign. The Tricolori are tough to beat at home and seeing that Netherlands are no longer considered European football giants, we predict that the two teams are going to play out a draw at Arena Nationala.

Romania have not been great of late, and that disappointment looks like it could be set to continue for a while. A home match with Holland is a good time for players to step in and show what they can do. The likes of Chivu are no longer around, and they have found it hard to get results and climb up the European ladder without them in the past few years.

Match Schedule

Cruyff won three European Cups with Ajax as a player and he clinched the European Cup with Barcelona as a coach. However, many people consider Johan Cruyff the best player in the history of Dutch football. A number of top-class players were part of the Netherlands national team that won the Euro 1988 trophy, with the likes of Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten, Frank Rijkaard and Erwin Koeman all starting the match against the Soviet Union.
