View all of the Israel v Romania predictions, poll and stats below (plus the best game odds).
Israel prepare for this game following on from a 1-1 Euro - Qualifiers draw against Switzerland.
The only scorer from Israel was Shon Weissman (88'). Ruben Vargas (36') was the scorer for Switzerland.
It’s been all too rare in recent times where Israel haven’t conceded. In fact, Israel have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 7 goals in the process. However, we must now wait to see whether that trend shall be replicated in this next game or not.
Romania come into this clash following a 4-0 Euro - Qualifiers win with the downing of Andorra in their most recent outing.
For Romania, the goals were scored by Nicolae Stanciu (23'), Ianis Hagi (28'), Răzvan Marin (44') and Florinel Coman (50').
A run of effective showings from the Romania defensive unit has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their past 6 outings in total. During the same period of time, their own forwards have managed to score 9.
Head to head
The previous league meeting featuring the two was Euro - Qualifiers match day 5 on 09/09/2023 which finished with the scoreline of Romania 1-1 Israel.
The referee was Slavko Vinčić.
Team News: Israel
The Israel manager Alon Hazan will be grateful not to have any fitness concerns at all before this game owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
It seems likely that The Blues and Whites will probably opt for a 4-3-3 system this time featuring Omri Glazer, Eliazer Dasa, Miguel Vitor, Sean Goldberg, Roy Revivo, Dor Peretz, Neta Lavi, Oscar Gloukh, Dor Turgeman, Eran Zahavi and Anan Khalaili.
Team News: Romania
Due to a fully healthy group available for selection, the Romania boss Edward Iordănescu has zero fitness worries to report ahead of this match.
It’s our belief that Tricolorii seem most likely to make use of a 5-3-2 formation with a starting lineup of Horatiu Moldovan, Vladimir Screciu, Andrei Burca, Radu Dragusin, Andrei Ratiu, Nicusor Bancu, Ianis Hagi, Razvan Marin, Nicolae Stanciu, Denis Dragus and George Puscas.
In our opinion, Romania and Israel could both end up scoring in what appears to be a good match-up, with little separating these two teams.
It could well end in a draw. We’re therefore anticipating a very close game with a 1-1 score draw when the full-time whistle blows.
