The battle for the first place in Group F sees Northern Ireland travel to Romania for a fourth consecutive win, and if you need to bet on this event the best option for you is to open an betting account via betting agent right now. The hosts managed everything since the last round of matches; they changed the coach, and vow to keep the trend to concede very few goals. In the first three games, Romania conceded just one goal and have seven points out of the possible nine.
Anghel Iordanescu is aware of the danger Northern Ireland has and stated: “They are dangerous on the counter-attack and from set-pieces. The match is extremely important; perhaps it’s the most important this year for us. It’s delicate because there are many problems.” And it is exactly those problems that might disrupt the pace of the game: the visitors have been plagued by recent injuries with Jamie Ward, McLaughlin, and Stuart Dallas to miss the qualifiers.
Romania are not injury free either even if they are still unsure whether Razvan Rat will be fit to play. During the last training of the team, Iordanescu used Sepsi in the back line and Keseru as a sole striker. Whether this will also happen on Friday remains to be seen, but rumors have it Stancu should also be given the chance. For Northern Ireland Kyle Lafferty is the player to turn to for goals in hopes he can break through Romania’s defensive line.
The teams met four times and so far Northern Ireland won three games, and Romania only won once back in 1985.
