Spain vs Romania Match Preview
Romania have a decent record against Spain to encourage them as they try to bounce back from their Euro 2020 qualification heartbreak with a positive showing in Madrid.
Cosmin Contra’s side were among three teams hoping to join Spain as the duo to advance automatically from Group F but, along with Norway, they suffered disappointment as Sweden ended up celebrating with a match to spare.
For Romania, it was worse as it happened on home soil. They lost 2-0 to the Swedes in Bucharest, conceding both goals in the first half and then failing to create any real clear-cut chances after the break as their opponents produced a professional display to see it through.
It looks like the end of the road in this campaign for Romania because they are highly unlikely to reach the play-offs, being too far down the standings among the list of countries who competed in the third tier of the inaugural UEFA Nations League.
But as the stats above outline, the Tricolours have given Spain quite a few problems down the years and this is a dead rubber for the former world and European champions who booked their place last month for next summer’s tournament.
Spain manager Robert Moreno fielded a strong starting line-up for Friday’s 7-0 rout of Malta in Cadiz and as he may be tempted to ring the changes here, Romania, with a point to prove, could just be capable of running their hosts close.
