Match status: 2020-21 Nations League - League B
Venue: Stadionul Ilie Oană (Ploieşti)
With just one ticket allocated per group for qualification into the top tier of the United Nations League, and with group fixtures heading into the second and decisive round, teams are getting more desperate to secure that first position.

And with three teams still in the running for the sole ticket, Group 1 of League B is one of those that is set to go straight down to the wire. And with two of the three teams contesting for the golden ticket in the group, Romania and Austria, locking horns in this fixture, we’re set for an entertaining affair.

Romania vs Austria Team News

Romania’s last outing came in the Nations League, where they were comprehensively beaten 4-0 by an Erling Haaland inspired Norway.

The Dortmund wonderkid opened the scoring early in the first half, and then proceeded to add two more goals in the second half to complete his hattrick. Leipzig forward, Alexander Sortloth was also on the scoresheet to compound the Romanian’s misery.

That defeat means Romania lost their spot atop Group 1 of League B, and they are now placed third on the standings with four points from their first three matches.

However, despite Romania’s heavy defeat at the hands of Norway, Mirel Radoi’s side are still very much in the race for the first position that guarantees qualification to the United Nations League A, and a chance to compete among Europe’s big boys.

If Romania are to do this though, then they need to find an urgent fix to a defence that has conceded seven goals in just the opening three matches!

Austria, in contrasting fortunes to their hosts, edged to a narrow 0-1 victory away at North Ireland. The Austrians went ahead via a Michael Gregoritsch goal on the stroke of halftime, and that was sufficient to secure all three points on the day.

Austria took control of Group 1 with that win, and Das Team are placed first on the standings, with two wins from the first round of fixtures. However, the race for the prized first position is far from over, as the Austrians have both Norway, and Romania breathing heavily down their necks.

Austria and Romania are no strangers to each other on the international football scene, having faced off 11 times in total. Romania has the better head-to-head record between both sides, having emerged victorious four times, and losing just twice, with five of those matches ending in a stalemate.

Additionally, Romania recorded an impressive 3-2 away win in the first leg of this fixture, and that’s enough reason for them to believe they can get the result in this one.

Romania vs Austria Predictions

Austria, having won nine of their last twelve games in all competitions, are in decent form, but they come up against a Romania side that has only lost thrice at home, since 2016 – two of these defeats came at the hands of Spain and Netherlands.

Both teams are not exactly the strongest sides defensively, hence we can expect to see a couple of goals in this one, with both sides finding the back of the net.
