Romania and Denmark have left themselves a lot of work to do, if they are to make it to Russia in 2018.
Romania, having won just one of their four games, which was an impressive 5-0 win in Armenia, have struggled to match that performance in their three other Group E games. The 0-0 draw in Kazakhstan and the 3-0 home defeat at the hands of group leaders Poland, have been particularly damaging and leave Romania sitting 4th in the Group with 5 points from four games.
Denmark have also struggled at the start of their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign. The Danes overcame Armenia 1-0 at home in their opening match but then lost to Poland 3-2 away and Montenegro 1-0 at home, the latter of which was extremely disappointing. However, the 4-1 home win over Kazakhstan last time out, will give the Danes a bit of confidence back ahead of the trip to Romania.
With one team qualifying automatically, both teams really need to win this match.
1. Bookies Choice
This is a very close match to call and the inconsistency of both teams in the group does not help matters. Bet365 have Denmark, despite being the away team, as the slight favourites to win this match at 2.60. The Danes have played only one away match in Group E and lost 3-2 in Poland, which is a difficult place to play. However, having played three matches at home and still sitting 4 points off the Poles, who top the group, the pressure is on for Denmark to pick something up in this match.
Romania are on offer at 2.90 with Bet365 to win the match and this underlines the close contest we could have instore. The Romanian’s lost 3-0 at home to Poland in their previous World Cup qualifier and nothing but a win will do, for them to stand any chance of making the 2018 World Cup. Romania’s home World Cup qualifying record shows them as a team who beat the teams they are expected to defeat but struggle against the stronger nations.
Therefore, perhaps the draw is the best bet here at 3.00 with Bet365.
2. Romania vs Denmark Betting Tips
One thing you can guarantee when Romania play World Cup qualifying games at home is goals. There have been at least 2 goals scored in each of their last twenty-six home World Cup qualifying games, stretching all the way back to 2001. Denmark have also seen plenty of goals in their recent away World Cup qualifying matches, with an average of 3.3 goals per game in their last seven. This suggests we should see goals and with the teams difficult to split, the draw and both teams to score is a decent bet at 4.50 with bet365.
To increase the odds, the 1-1 draw can be backed at 5.50 with Bet365 and considering Romania have drawn two of their last three home World Cup qualifiers with this result, it’s very tempting.
