Belarus vs Romania Lineups and Last Match

Belarus

Belarus made the trip to Israel last time out where a solitary goal decided the destination of all 3pts. The home side scored that all-important goal in the 3rd-minute of time added on at the end of the match, breaking Belarus' hearts in the process. Belarus sit 4th out of six in Group I with 4pts to their name. A win this week could take them to within 4pts of Israel but even then, their chances of qualifying for Euro 2024 are slim at best.

Predicted Lineup – Plotnikov (GK), Politevich, Polyakov, Karpovich, Volkov, Pechenin, Korzun, Kaplenko, Kontsevoy, Bocherov & Morozov

Romania

Romania ran out 2-0 winners at home to Kosovo in their last Group I match-up, but needed a bit of a helping hand from their opponents. A tight and tense first forty-five ended goalless but just before the break, Kosovo had their main goal threat Muriqi sent-off for two bookable offences. The game opened up for Romania in the second half and goals from Stanciu and Milhaila secured all 3pts.

Predicted Lineup – Moldovan (GK), Burcă, Drăgușin, Rațiu, Stanciu, Bancu, Cicâldău, Hagi, Screciu, Drăguș & Coman

Player to Watch: Valentin Mihăilă

Romanian midfielder Valentin Mihăilă top scores for his country in the Euro 2024 qualifiers with three goals.

Despite being named on the bench for his country's last game against Kosovo, Mihăilă came on and scored a crucial second goal for his team, wrapping up another important victory.

The young Parma midfielder is impressing in Italy and has made the step up to international football with 14 caps and 4 goals to his name. Whether he starts the game or comes off the bench, we think it's worth keeping your eye on Valentin Mihăilă in this game and fully expect him to leave his mark on the Belarus defence.
