*Odds from Ladbrokes are subject to change

Germany Win-to-Nil

Germany have won three of their six previous encounters with Romania, including each of the pair's last two head-to-heads, and we're backing the home side to end Friday victorious once again. Germany have kept clean sheets in each of their last three matches against Iceland, Armenia and Liechtenstein, while Romania have failed to score in two of their last three away trips.

Under 3.5 Goals

While we are backing a comfortable win for the home side, we're not expecting there to be a lot of goals in the game. Under 3.5 goals have been scored in four of the last six meetings between these two countries. Fewer than four goals have also been scored in each of Romania's last five outings in all competitions and that includes a 1-0 defeat against England.

Timo Werner to Score

Timo Werner might not score a lot of goals for his club side but he is a key force in the German machine and has already netted three times during qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Werner has scored 19 times in 45 caps for Germany and we're expecting the Chelsea striker to find the back of the net against Romania on Friday.

Germany vs Romania: The Latest Stats & Figures

Germany to take one step closer to Qatar 2022 with a win against Romania

The hosts will be without the services of Gosens, Hummels, Can, Tah, Schulz, Gundogen, Brandt, Draxler and Volland this week but still have an experienced and quality squad well capable of picking Romania apart on Friday. Germany have won their last three games, 2-0, 6-0 and 4-0, rediscovering their solid defence and that creative spark that appeared to go missing for a period under Low. Romania are an improving side but look set to struggle against the might of Germany this week.

Romania are certainly in contention to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar as they currently sit 3rd in Group J a point behind Armenia and one ahead of North Macedonia, while Iceland and Liechtenstein continue to struggle. The visitors would be happy with a draw and may even accept a defeat as long as they can beat North Macedonia in their next game on the 11th of October, but will certainly be hoping to avoid a heavy defeat on Friday.


Germany: Neuer, Leno, ter Stegen, Rüdiger, Raum, Kehrer, Schlotterbeck, Süle, Klostermann, Ginter, Kimmich, Havertz, Goretzka, Wirtz, Musiala, Neuhaus, Hofmann, Müller, Reus, Werner, Gnabry, Adeyemi, Sané.

Romania: Niță, Vlad, Aioani, Moldovan, Chiricheș, Toșca, Bancu, Nedelcearu, Manea, Rus, Burcă, Rațiu, Stanciu, Maxim, Marin, Hagi, Cicâldău, Mitriță, Nedelcu, Mihăilă, Cordea, Moruțan, Albu, Keșerü, Pușcaș, Ivan.
