Football predictions Spain vs Romania – The Tricolors missed the qualification at Euro 2020 on the preliminary stage, yet they have a new chance because they will play in the dam offered by the classification of the League of Nations.
Cosmin Contra could be at the last match at the helm of the national team and we all expect a different attitude of the players even if they meet the strongest team in the group.
⚽️Spain vs Romania: The Last Matches, Goals, Team Formation, Injured and Suspended.
◾️He secured both the qualification for the final tournament and the winning of Group F, having the best attack and the best defense.
◾️3 days ago he played 7-0 with Malta, under the conditions in which Robert Moreno did not use the best 11.
◾️Paco Alcacer, Santi Cazorla, Alvaro Morata or Sergio Ramos were partially rested, while De Gea, Busquets, Carvajal or Saul Niguez did not play for a minute.
◾️According to prosport.ro, coach Robert Moreno wants his victory even if the match is totally devoid of the stake for Iberians: “In the short term, my goal is to win the last two games in the group.
◾️I want to be in the first ballot box at the draw and finish the campaign with two victories. ”
◾️The team is extremely valuable, so players like Jordi Alba, Dani Ceballos, Isco, Asensio or Sergi Roberto have not been summoned.
◾️It comes after a 0-2 defeat at the National Arena in front of Sweden, after a match in which many important people in Romanian football declared that they had never seen the national team playing so poorly.
◾️Daniel Pancu blames the players’ attitude first and foremost: “They are the main people in charge! Neither Mircea Lucescu has anything to do with them ”(source: prosport.ro).
◾️I hope I’m not mistaken, but I think it’s for the first time in history when Romania has a 21:00 odds for victory!
◾️It will most likely be Cosmin Contra’s last match on the national bench and we should see a completely different attitude of the team, especially as Spain will play relaxed.
◾️Ciprian Deac and Vasile Mogos had very weak evolutions with Sweden and did not find themselves in the first 11, but other changes in the starting team are possible.

✔️In the last three matches played at home, Roberto Moreno’s team has beaten 7-0 in Malta, 4-0 in the Faroe Islands and 3-0 in Sweden.
✔️All the football fans in Spain expect the national team to beat Romania, especially since this match has no stake for “tricolors”.
✔️Rodrigo has minor medical problems, but chances are he will be recovered by the time of the match. He will certainly play Alcacer, a very good striker.

Romania: Team shape, news and statistics
Î E V V Î
✔️About 12,000 Romanian supporters are expected by Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid. Undoubtedly, they do not want to see a defensive match from the team coached by Cosmin Contra, especially since there is nothing to defend.
✔️ Contra will leave after this match and it would be normal to approach an offensive tactic, in order to erase from the bad impression left in this campaign, where he has always acted as a frightened technician.
✔️The main goal of the “Tricolori” is to score at least one goal in the Spanish gate.
✔️They will play the League of Nations play-off anyway and can qualify for Euro 2020 through this competition.
✔️So far, it is not clear who will be the coach of Romania at this “dam”, even advancing the variant Mihai Stoichiță.
✔️Criticized for using Mogoș against Sweden, Contra can hold Benzar on the right side of the defense. Also, Ianis Hagi can be introduced on the ground from the first minute, along with Stanciu and Mitriță.
✔️Florin Andone and Vlad Chiricheș are the most important of the injured players.

Football Prediction of the Day Spain vs Romania
Romania’s team is down to morale after the 0-2 defeat against Sweden.
Not so much the result, especially the poor game of the tricolors makes the players are not confident in a good result in Madrid.
Defensive was completely overcome in the match at the National Arena and there are not enough solutions for this compartment.
In the absence of Chiriches and Dragos Grigore, Contra is obliged to send in the field a defense without homogeneity, with inexperienced players.
Spain comes with a first 11 of great value and has the stated objective of winning this match, even if the victory does not change its situation in the standings.
Paco Alcacer, Morata, Sarabia, Niguez or Alcantara will face Benzar, Rus, Bancu and Tosca, so a success with at least two goals from the hosts is an absolutely normal result.
Bet Tips: Victory Spain (Handicap -1)
Romania plays without pressure. A defensive evolution, to lose to a difference of the smallest score, would be more embarrassing than a brave game, with the risk of a big difference on the table. It would be normal for the “tricolors” to attack and to be discovered in defense. Only they could score, but at the same time, they can receive more goals from a team from Spain for which the match has a stake. I think we’ll see at least three goals.
