In Group F all decisions have been made since Friday evening. While the Spaniards were already determined as a safe European Championship participants before the two qualifying games in November, the Swedes have now also solved their ticket for the EURO 2020. Thanks to a 2-0 away win in Bucharest, the Scandinavians are not to displace second place before the last matchday.
The meeting between Spain and Romania, in which according to the quotas the Iberians are acted as a big favorite, has accordingly no sporting significance. Much more will be given to the “Furia Roja” to lay down a positive conclusion to the proper qualification and at the same time rehearsing other automatisms.
To be ahead of the match Spain vs. To identify a suitable tip for Romania, does it probably make sense to deal with the question of how much passion and passion the “Tricolorii” can still put on the field after the disappointment on Friday? It will depend on whether the former World and European champion may land another victory or whether the underdog may even be able to celebrate a surprise coup.
However, because the clarification of this question depends on many factors that are difficult to assess or analyze, we would tend to refrain from predicting a home side handicap success between Spain and Romania. Instead, it is once again a lucrative option to bet that the team of coach Robert Moreno runs really hot only in the second half.
23 points from nine games, seven wins and two draws and a goal difference of 26: 5 – that’s the impressive record of the Spanish national team before the last round of the European Championship qualifiers.
If we exclude the two disappointing scores in October in Sweden and Norway (1: 1) and note the tragic circumstances of coaching change from Luis Enrique to Robert Moreno as a fateful measure, then the leaders of the association with the cutting of their country selection certainly be satisfied.
At no point in the current since March qualification had the feeling as if the “Furia Roja” feared for the European Championship participation. Especially in front of home crowd, the Spaniards were no nakedness and celebrated so far in four games four wins. In three of four cases, the Seleccion kept the “white vest” and just as often Paco Alcacer, Alvaro Morata and Co. get three or more hits.
Even more interesting, however, is the statistics that the Iberians seem to be real late starters, because only four of the 16 goals scored in front of their own fans fell in the first half of each match.
In twelve of the 16 cases, however, the game device only found its way into the opponent’s case after the page break. Also on Friday night, the original 2-0 half-time result against Malta was only screwed up thanks to an increase in the second half to 7: 0 in the height.
The bottom line is the “Red Fury” 23 out of the last 32 international goals from minute 46. For this reason, we also consider on Monday between Spain and Romania, the odds for more goals of the Moreno team in the second round for quite lucrative.
Personnel is expected that coach Robert Moreno, who was as a long-time assistant to Luis Enrique, the logical successor to the national team, but still never coached a professional team in charge, which will make one or the other change.
In particular, the actors who were not or only briefly used against Malta at home will, for the most part, get their chance from the start. These include Dani Olmo or Pau Torres, who celebrated their debuts in the A team on Friday. We also expect BVB ace Paco Alcacer against the Romanians in the starting eleven.
Before the international match doubles in November, the Romanians had the EM participation in 2020 still in their own hands. Admittedly, it was extremely unlikely that the “Tricolorii” could make their two final matches at home against Sweden and Spain victorious, yet hope was the big trump.
After a good half hour, however, the dream of the direct European Championship qualification on Friday night in the home game against the Scandinavian opponent was almost over. The Swedes already led 2-0 at that time and had the game completely under control. Romania disappointed in front of their own fans and now hope that the ticket can be resolved through the detour of the UEFA Nations League play-offs.
However, just before the final appearance at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, this second chance over the play-offs is a little encouragement. Because the team of coach Cosmin Contra, who is considered critical at home, wants to stay “in the flow” and does not want to pick up a good swat, we expect a motivated guests-elf who wants to work on their weak points, possibly even self-confidence for the To refuel games of relegation.
In particular, the world ranking 29th Be careful not to lose the game again in the first 30 minutes. A defensive approach – especially in the first round – therefore increases the likelihood that in Spain vs. Spain. Romania realizes a forecast for a more spectacular second half.
Incidentally, the Romanians have taken a step forward in recent years in terms of quality. More and more young, native players venture the step into the European top leagues and can even cause a sensation there.
The best examples are, above all, those talents who attracted attention during the U21 European Championship in the summer and led the Romanian youngsters sensationally to the semi-finals. Remember that in Spain vs. Romania our tip should be made in principle but in the direction of the favorite, but this does not change anything.
