Romania are set to participate in just their sixth European Championship with hopes of advancing out of the group stages. However, Liechtenstein are looking to beat their opponents for the first time.

Romania vs Liechtenstein prediction: One-way traffic is expected

Key stats

  • Romania have won six straight against Liechtenstein
  • Liechtenstein's last win was in October 2020
  • The Tricolorii went unbeaten in 2023, but are yet to win this calendar year

Pre-game odds and win probability: Romania expected to complete a rout

  • Home: 1/18 (1.06) – 94.7%
  • Draw: 12/1 (13.0) – 7.7%
  • Away: 40/1 (41.0) – 2.4%

It's quite astounding how favoured Romania are for this picture, but on paper, it's also no surprise. Liechtenstein are just two places above their lowest-ever FIFA ranking, so they are certainly not going to be pulling up any trees in Romania.

Because of the reasons outlined above, we are avoiding the outright betting market and the little value it offers. Instead, we'd suggest either copying our bet of Romania to win and BTTS or looking on our free betting tips page for further inspiration and ideas.

Last five H2Hs: Tricolorii hoping to maintain their 100% record

These two have actually met on two occasions quite recently and it was Romania who came out on top during their World Cup qualifying group winning by an aggregate scoreline of 4-0 in 2021. In the six matches between Romania and Liechtenstein, the former have won by a confined score of 31-1, so there is little hope of anything but a home win occurring this week.

Romania preview: Perfect confidence-boosting match

Romania are in a group this summer they will see as possible to advance out of having gone unbeaten in qualifying. However, zero wins in 2024 has them stuttering, so a comfortable hem game against a side ranked outside of the top 200 is perfect.

Predicted lineup: Moldovan (GK), Bancu, Burca, Dragusin, Ratiu, Marin, Coman, Stanciu, Cicaldau, Hagi, Dragus

Liechtenstein preview: Damage limitation is key

Liechtenstein head into this away clash knowing they have not won a game since 2020 and are ever close to eclipsing their worst-ever FIFA ranking. So, if they can keep things tight at the back and make it a frustrating game for Romania, that will be regarded as a small win.

Predicted lineup: Ospelt (GK), Kindle, Wolfinger, Goppel, Beck, Meier, Luchinger, Sele, Buchel, Saglam, Beck

Player to watch: Nicolae Stanciu

If there is one player who is guaranteed to start whenever fit for Romania, it's their captain Nicolae Stanciu. The 31-year-old is capable of playing in an advanced number 10 role or further back in a deep-lying playmaker position, but whatever he's asked to do, it's always at the heartbeat of this Romanian side.

Experience will be critical

Not just for this match like this one which many believe should be a walkover, but hearing into Euro 2024, Romania will need their captain to guide them through some difficult moments.

Sranciu scored three goals during the qualifying stages while also starting every single match, so whatever Romania do well, he's usually involved.
