Spain will take on Romania on Monday in UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers as the qualification campaign comes to a close. Spain go into this game as the favourites.
Kick-off : 8:45 PM (Local)
Venue : Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid
Spain are already in next year’s Euro’s after securing qualification and they now look forward to ending the qualifying campaign.
La Furia Roja have topped the group and have 23 points from nine games. They scored 26 goals during the qualifying process while conceding only five times.
Their next opponents are Romania at home. It shouldn’t much of a difficult task in this dead rubber for Spain to beat Romania who are low on confidence.
Roberto Moreno will tell his stalwarts to focus on the task in hand. And get the result to finish off the qualifiers as they look forward to the next big tournament in the Euro’s.
On the other hand, Romania are already out of next year’s Euro’s after failing to qualify from this tough group.
The Eastern Europeans are third in the group with one game left. They have played 9 games and got 14 points. The goal difference is +7.
Against Spain they will have to be at their absolute best for a result. Tactical solidity is needed in Madrid as they finish off the campaign. Good luck to them.
Spain are ahead in terms of the head to head against Romania and they will be confident ahead of the fixture.
