Romania v Belarus – Betting Preview


Romania Summary

Romania came into qualifying with a confidence-boosting 5-0 win over Moldova. That was their final friendly game before the road to Germany began.

They carried that positive winning form into the first group match with a tidy 0-2 away win over Andorra last week. Their opponent was reduced to ten men and so it was a comfortable opener to the campaign.

Romania is a huge favourite to win this game and fancied to qualify from the group too.

If they manage to qualify for the championships, it would be the second time in the last three attempts.

The host looks very strong here, especially when taking their home results from the latest UEFA Nations League matches.

Belarus Summary

Making it even tougher to get to German for the 2024 Euros, Belarus will have no home advantage during this qualifying stage. This due to the war in Ukraine, where their ties with Russia prevent them from playing in their own country.

It led to a 5-0 hammering by Switzerland in their ‘home’ game on a weekend, which was played out at an empty military stadium in neutral in Serbia.

The mood in the camp is very low and it is difficult to see how it improves now they face Romania in front of a capacity of 55,000 in the capital.

One has to go back to September 2010 since their last win over a nation ranked in FIFA’s current top 50.

Betting Analysis

Looking at the 1×2 market first. Romania is a very strong looking favourites in this game and they are @ 1.33 to win.

Belarus is @ 10.0 to win the game and a draw, something the visitor would grab with both hands, is @ 4.75.

Moving onto the Asian handicap betting for this contest. Romana -1.5 will fancy their chances of winning the game well and anything less than a two goal win would be seen as an unconvincing result.

Belarus was flat and unmotivated in the empty stadium for the game with the Swiss, which they lost by five. There is a chance they liven up with the great atmosphere that a noisy 50,000+ crowd will bring for this match. They would need to defend well to avoid a two goal loss.

Looking at The Under/Over goal betting last of all. The line is set at 2.5. The Over is @ 1.87 and the Under is @ 1.90.
