Moldova's national football team was practically a "punching bag" during their World Cup qualifying group. They were "criminally" bad in every facet of the game, so it should come as no surprise that they picked up just one point from 10 games, scoring five and conceding an incredible 30. However, Moldova managed to redeem themselves with good results in the UEFA Nations League, but without effect, considering that they finished in the second position due to a bad mutual clash with Latvia.

Meanwhile, Romania is completely disappointed. They played quite well in the qualifiers for the World Cup, but in the end of this season, they ruined all their efforts. A 0-0 draw with Iceland in the last domestic qualifying match completely destroyed any hope of a playoff, and in the end they had to settle for third position and only one point less than second-placed North Macedonia. Their result agony continued in the UEFA Nations League, where they finished in last place, so the next cycle of this competition will be played in Division C.

Moldavia vs Romania Betting Tips: Team2 to Win

More than seven years have passed since these two teams met, and in 2015, Romania achieved a 2-1 triumph. It was the third victory in four duels with Moldova so far, so we don't expect anything other than Romania's victory.

For many teams, the home field is considered an "impregnable fortress", but not for Moldova, where "Stadionul Zimbru" often collapsed like a house of cards. They achieved only two triumphs in 10 home games, but it should be borne in mind that those two came against one of the weakest European teams - Andorra (2-1) and Liechtenstein (2-0).

Namely, Moldova's defensive line was very critical. The incredible fact is that they registered only one "clean sheet" in the last 10 home games, conceding 24 goals during that time, and at least two goals in 8 of those.

Romania are playing much better than the results show. Their attacking zone looks quite decent, but the defense "squeaks", considering that The Tricolours have conceded at least a goal in 8 of the previous 10 games.

Moldova lost the first November friendly match against Azerbaijan (1-2) at home, and now a team 5x stronger than the previous rival is coming to visit them. Romania are in desperate need of a win, so we believe they will give their last atom of strength to take all the spoils from this visit.
