Romania vs Germany Prediction & Match Preview


Romania vs Germany Prediction & Match Preview



28 March 2021 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET World Cup Qual

All eyes will be on Arena Nationala when Romania and Germany face each other in the Group J derby on Sunday evening. 

Romania kicked off their World Cup qualifying campaign in great manner, with the team beating North Macedonia 3-2, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Germany. 

Talented attacker Florinel Coman, who suffered an injury in the win over the Macedonians, is unlikely to feature in Sunday’s clash.

Joachim Low’s men, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over Iceland. 

The Germans aim to get their job in the World Cup qualifiers as soon as possible, and we are positive that Low will count on key players for the Group J derby. 

Since Romania experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the second half of the clash against North Macedonia, away win should be considered.

Team News:

Romania's hero of the hour Hagi should certainly earn a starting role after his winner on Thursday, but Florin Tanase also found the back of the net on the night and will not relinquish his place easily.

Parma starlet Valentin Mihaila also came off the bench to score and is pushing for inclusion on the left ahead of Florinel Coman, while Reading's George Puscas is battling with Claudiu Keseru to lead the line.

Radoi will be reluctant to rotate too much for a game of this magnitude, so Nicolae Stanciu and Razvan Marin are set to man the engine room for the second time in three days.

Germany lost Toni Kroos, Niklas Sule and Robin Gosens to injury before their victory over Iceland, and while the former has now returned to Real Madrid, the latter two remain major doubts for matchday two.

Jonas Hofmann and Marcel Halstenberg have both been forced to quarantine after the former tested positive for coronavirus - with Halstenberg self-isolating after playing backgammon with his infected teammate - so Emre Can had to deputise at left-back in midweek and could do so again here.

Low is expected to save the bulk of his changes for next week's visit of North Macedonia, so barring the possible inclusion of Timo Werner, the Germans will likely field an almost identical XI to that of Thursday's win.

Romania possible starting lineup:
Nita; Popescu, Chiriches, Burca, Bancu; Stanciu, Marin; Man, Hagi, Mihaila; Keseru

Germany possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Klostermann, Ginter, Rudiger, Can; Kimmich, Goretzka, Gundogan; Gnabry, Havertz, Sane
