Colombia vs Romania Betting Tips: Colombia to Win

Despite their undefeated streak of an impressive 20 matches (W14, D6) being in danger of coming to an end as they faced none other than the mighty Spain, Nestor Lorenzo's men managed to pull off a stellar display and defeat the toothless La Roja with a narrow 1-0 scoreline, courtesy of Daniel Munoza's second-half winner.

The historic victory over the three-time European champions marked the fifth success on the bounce for Los Cafeteros, who are now aiming to maintain a strong momentum in their warm-up matches before embarking on their Copa America adventure in June, where they are pitted against Paraguay, Brazil, and Costa Rica.

In the midst of their triumphant run, Colombia stands out with the unforgettable 2-1 comeback win against the fearsome Brazil, thanks to a pair of goals from Liverpool ace Luis Diaz, followed by a solitary one-goal unanswered celebration over Paraguay that solidifies Nestor's soaring squad as the only unbeaten side in the World Cup qualifying campaign.

Looking at it from Romania's viewpoint, the start of the calendar year didn't unfold as planned, as they were forced to split the spoils in a 1-1 stalemate against the mediocre nation of Northern Ireland, a result that unfortunately shattered their triumphant streak of three matches, having bested Andorra, Israel, and Switzerland during that period.

The trio of successive triumphs, especially the decisive one on the closing qualification matchday against the Red Crosses, propelled Edward Iordanescu's squad to the summit of Group I, securing them a direct passage to the EURO in Germany, while navigating through their journey unharmed with six wins and four draws.

Astonishingly, Romania is yet to taste defeat at the hands of Colombia, having triumphed over them on both occasions at the World Cups in 1994 and 1998, before settling for a goalless draw in a friendly back in 2006. Despite this, we reckon the full-of-confidence Colombia can sprint to a comfortable victory, dealing Romania their first setback since November 2022.

As for the visitors, they might also consider making some changes to the starting eleven, given the noticeable dissatisfaction from boss Iordanescu regarding the performances of certain individuals.

Despite netting the equalizer against Northern Ireland, Parma's right winger Dennis Man could make way for his Deportivo Alaves peer, Ianis Hagi, while George Puskas remains at the helm of the attacking line.
