Romania U23 vs New Zealand U23 Top Free Betting Tips

After a winning start, Romania were brought back to earth by a humiliating 4-0 loss against South Korea. New Zealand suffered a late defeat to lose the 3-2 thriller against Honduras and put them outside the top two places going into the last game.

The odds presented here are always subject to change. These odds are from NetBet, who are our recommended bookmaker for the big game. One should check with NetBet before placing the bet.

New Zealand U23 win

New Zealand might have lost the game against Honduras but it was mightily close. The team will find itself in a better position if not for conceding the late winner. Romania will be low on confidence after the crushing loss against South Korea. Despite having brought a strong squad, Romania may lack the confidence required to come up with one final push.

Total goals over 2.5

The opening matches for New Zealand and Romania produced a tight encounter, but the upcoming game could be vastly different as both need to go for a victory to have any chance of qualification to the final stages. This might result in an end-to-end game that will produce a lot of goals.

Chris Wood to score anytime

New Zealand have benefited from the presence of an experienced forward like Chris Wood, who has already scored two goals in the group stages. After scoring in back-to-back games, Wood is showing the kind of form and momentum that will make him a threat against any team.

Romania U23 vs New Zealand U23: Team News and Match Preview

Romania U23

The campaign which started in such a promising fashion with the unlikely win over Honduras is threatening to end in disappointment for Romania, who would not have been prepared for the crushing loss against South Korea. Now, there is very little time left for Mirel Radoi to pick up his players.

New Zealand U23

New Zealand were in a strong position going into the last few moments of the match against Honduras, but the late goal from Rivas has changed the dynamics completely going into the last group game. New Zealand will be under pressure to win their match and hope that other results go their way.
