Finland and Romania face off on Friday in a League B Group 3 Nations League showdown at Helsinki Olympic Stadium. When these two teams faced off on June 11th it was Romania that secured the 1-0 victory.
Finland currently sits in 3rd place in the standings, having picked up four points. Finland’s last game came against Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 14th the offense scored two goals, but the defense gave up three goals and that led to the defeat. Finland had 61 percent of the possession, but they were out shot 7-3. Teemu Pukki has scored 36 goals for the National Team, and he will get the start again in this game. This is a team that is very healthy, and they should have most of their key starters in this game. Benjamin Kallman will also be getting the start, and they need him to be strong in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Romania, who sits in 4th place in the standings having picked up three points. Romania’s last game was against Montenegro, and the defense really struggled, giving up three goals and that led to the victory. They had two shots on goal and 60 percent of the possession. George Puscas is having a nice season, and he is going to need to have a big game here. The one big question for Romania heading into this game is who will be in goal in this game. Ionut Radu looks to be the guy who will get the start, but whoever it is will need to have a big game.
The last time these two teams faced off, there was only one goal scored, and I expect goals are going to be hard to come by again in this game. It wouldn’t shock me if this game ended in a 0-0 draw, but there won’t be more than a goal scored here. Back the under to cash here with ease.
