Romania and Northern Ireland prepare to make their first international appearance of 2020 this Friday, in the opening game of their new UEFA Nations League group. After both sides found themselves outmatched in their respective European Championship qualifying grounds, more competitive affairs await them going forward.

In a group alongside Austria and Norway, these two have a golden opportunity to get off to a victorious start this weekend. Can either side emerge with all three points here? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Romania vs Northern Ireland Betting Tips

One thing the pair have, is a steely determination to make up for lost time during this international break. Both were on the receiving end of comprehensive defeats in their most recent matches last November and won't welcome a reminder.

Spain swept Romania aside with a 5-0 thrashing, while Champions League winner Serge Gnabry scored a hat-trick as Northern Ireland lost 6-1 to Germany. There are changes within both camps as far as call-ups are concerned, but the bulk of players regularly involved have been included.

For Romania, that means Rangers playmaker Ianis Hagi and Sassuolo's new £8m defender Vlad Chiriches feature among Mirel Radoi's plans. After a successful three-month loan spell was made permanent in July, Hagi scored his first competitive goal since then against Hamilton Academical last weekend.

He'll be hoping to create havoc against a sturdy Northern Ireland backline here, which boasts a number of familiar faces. Leicester defender Jonny Evans, transfer-linked fullback Jamal Lewis (Norwich), Watford's Craig Cathcart and newly-promoted Stuart Dallas (Leeds) are likely to start.

It's Ian Baraclough's first match in charge, after a three-year stint as their under-21 head coach.

Romania vs Northern Ireland Correct Score Predictions

Interestingly, these managers have played twice at youth level. Radoi is unbeaten (one win, one draw) and would love to kick off his senior tenure victorious.

However, both managers are in the same situation. This should be a tightly-contested affair and unsurprisingly, I'm leaning towards BTTS because there are matchwinners across the two sides.
