Germany vs Romania Final – LIVE Reddit Soccer 08/10/2021

Die Mannschaft are not unbeaten in the group as a single loss came, under the tutelage of Flick’s predecessor Joachim Low, against North Macedonia in the final game before their eventful run to the round of 16 at Euro 2020.

The conclusion of that tournament saw Low finally depart after 15 years at the helm with the 61-year-old, despite at one point having been a national hero as he guided to the team to World Cup glory in 2014, perhaps having overstayed his welcome.

Under former Bayern Munich boss Flick, Germany appear to have rediscovered their mojo – they scored 12 and conceded none in the space of a week, as they beat Liechtenstein 2-0, Armenia 6-0 and then Iceland 4-0.

 

They may have struggled to convert chances in that first game, as they registered 29 shots against minnows Liechtenstein, but the performances in the following two games were mightily impressive and they will be confident of extending their lead at the top of the group in Friday’s game.

Romania will be doing their best to stop them, however, and arguably have more on the line as they battle with two other countries for the second qualification spot.

After a poor run of four consecutive defeats earlier in the year, Mirel Radoi’s side turned a corner and can match Germany in not having conceded in their three previous games.

Goals from Dennis Man and Nicolae Stanciu secured a 2-0 win away at Iceland, two more from Alin Tosca and Cristian Manea then matched that scoreline against Liechtenstein, and a goalless draw with North Macedonia concluded their last batch of qualifiers.

The Tricolorii are looking to reach the World Cup finals for the first time since 1998 and appear to have found form under their new manager at a crucial time.

They will head into this game aware that the odds are stacked against them, but every point will be crucial with just four games remaining and two points separating themselves, Armenia and North Macedonia in the likely battle for second in Group J.

Germany will try to extend its three-game win streak under new manager Hansi Flick when it faces Romania on Friday in a 2022 FIFA World Cup European Qualifying group-stage match. The Germans (5-0-1) have not conceded a goal in winning their three matches since Flick took over from Joachim Low as manager. Germany beat Liechtenstein, Armenia and Iceland by a combined 12-0 in qualifying last month. It is trying to recover from a decline that saw it lose three times in a seven-game span before its current win streak. Romania (3-1-2) is hungry to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1998, and it is unbeaten in its last three.

Kickoff is set for 2:45 p.m. ET at Volksparkstadion in Hamburg, Germany. Germany is the -1000 favorite (risk $1000 to win $100) in the latest Germany vs. Romania odds from Caesars Sportsbook, with Romania the +2200 underdog. A draw is priced at +800 and the over-under for total goals scored is set at 3.5. Before betting the Germany vs. Romania match or make any 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying predictions, you have to see what consummate soccer insider Martin Green has to say.

After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated well over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season, and he has his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.

The squad hasn’t conceded a goal in its past three games, and it has scored in four of its last six. One of those was a 1-0 loss to powerhouse England and the other was a scoreless draw with the North Macedonia team that beat Germany in March. Before its current run against inferior foes, the Germans had conceded in seven straight. The Romanians have a strong midfield featuring Slavia Prague’s Nicolae Stanciu, Ianis Hagi of Rangers and Cagliari’s Razvan Marin. Claudiu Keseru of Romanian club FCSB is the top scorer, with 13 goals in 46 matches.

Romania will be desperate to get a result Friday, as it has been to the World Cup seven times but not since France 98. It made three straight from 1990-98, and those were its only appearances since 1970. The 1-0 qualifying loss in March was the first time Germany held Romania off the score sheet in the last eight meetings, and Romania is 2-3-3 in those matches. In its other qualifying loss, the Romanians had a man sent off and played a man down for the final 12 minutes. Armenia scored twice in the final 10 minutes to take the 3-2 victory.
