Faroe Islands vs Romania Prediction
The hosts were never front runners to make it out of the group stages, and have been the whipping boys in each of their clashes so far. Their previous matchup on the road against the 2010 World Cup Champions, saw them at the losing end of a 4-0 scorecard, prior to which they lost to Sweden at home, by the very same scoreline.
Furthermore, the home team are on a six-match losing streak and are deservedly at the bottom of the cluster with zero points to their name.
On the other hand, Romania are mounting the pressure on Sweden for a top-two finish and are currently just a point away from the latter in the table. The squad bounced back from the loss they suffered at the hands of Spain by pulling off a 1-0 win over Malta at home.
Also, Cosmin Contra’s men have admitted defeat just once on the road and will be coming into the fixture this week on the back of a two-match unbeaten run in their outings. Taking into account that Romania have secured the bragging rights in each of their last three visits to Faroe Islands, Romania are the outright favorites to come out on top in this one.
Additionally, the away side have scored two goals or more in each of their previous two outings. And, have amassed a total of seven goals from their trips on the road alone. To make things worse for the Faroe Islands faithful, the hosts have been vulnerable at the back, and have let in ten goals from their previous three games here.
Given that two out of their last three head to head meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the final scoreboards, a high scoring clash is definitely in the reckoning on Saturday.
