Romania hosts Iceland in round 9 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Thursday, November 11th at Stadionul Steaua (Bucharest).
The national team of Romania is now in the lead in the dispute that still continues in Group J. In general, the Germans expectedly took the first place, which guaranteed them a ticket to the World Cup back in October. It remains to find out who will be the 2nd in the end. There are as many as three contenders for this place, and the Romanians are one point ahead of their pursuers. They have 13 points, and North Macedonia and Armenia have 12. It is clear that in such a scenario, everything is in the hands of Mirel Radoi's charges. On the other hand, any misfire can be fatal. By and large, the fate of the Tricolors will be decided in the upcoming game in Bucharest. After all, it is unlikely that there will be a misfire in the match against Liechtenstein, the weakest team in this company.
The national team of Iceland turned out to be not a "king for a day", but a bright but rather short flash. They started talking about the Blues as a phenomenon five years ago, after the triumphant debut at the Euro. The representatives of a small remote island made their way to the quarterfinals, showing rather bright football. But then the results only worsened. Iceland still managed to play at the first World Cup for itself. And it even tied against Argentina, but that was the last success. The Icelanders couldn’t manage to get to Euro 2020 even through the additional playoffs. And now Arnar Vidarsson's men are only the penultimate in their group. In total, they managed to score only eight points in 2021, and six of them were gained in matches against Liechtenstein, that is, in fact, by default. Beyond that, the Scandinavians took points away from North Macedonia and the Armenians, having played in battling draws. All other games were lost. If we look at away matches (except for the voyage to Liechtenstein), they bear a depressing picture: 3-0 against the Germans and 2-0 in Yerevan.
Bookmakers give an advantage to the hosts of the upcoming game. Iceland is out of shape and doesn’t’ have any motivation, and the Romanians have to win the match to stay 2nd in the group. Let's believe that they will succeed.
