A point will be enough for Romania to guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs at the very least but a win and Romania will get automatic qualification for the Euro's and this Romanian side are eager to get their qualification over and done with rather than having to get something from their last game. Romania have played three 0-0 games in a row and are definitely struggling up front but obviously defensviely they have been excellent of late. Keseru will be hoping to bring his fine club form to the International scene as he has netted five goals in six games this season for Ludogrets, including three in his last three outings. Budescu has also had a solid start to his domestic scene and will be hoping to provide goals and assists at the internation level on Thursday night, this is an exciting Romania team and one that I think will be capable of causing a stir at the Euro's once they get there.
Standing in Romania's way is a Finland team that simply must win to give themselves a chance of getting into the Euro's. Finland have won back to back games in the Group to give themselves an outside chance of qualification but must make it three in a row on Thursday if they are to upset the odds. With Pukki, Eremenko and Pohjanpalo this is a side that has some goals in it but they really struggled this qualifying campaign to find the net. Winning their last two by the bare minimum has given them an outside chance of sneaking into the playoffs but they simply have to get a win here in Romania, a tough ask.
Taking the unders here. I cant see Finland finding a way past Romania and while I think that Romania will get a goal I dont see them going goal crazy. This has unders written all over it and is what I will be on.
