Following that win over Austria, they have since lost their last two games against Iceland and Norway with the latter loss being a heavy 4-0 loss on Sunday. They continue to look extremely fragile defensively but they will be under some pressure to improve at home. That could lead to this being something of a shootout so expect both teams to score in what should be an entertaining if unpredictable game.
Austria face Romania in the UEFA Nations League on Wednesday evening looking to record their third successive away victory in Group B1.However, the home side sit just two points adrift of the leaders at the halfway stage, giving them the licence to push for victory on home territory.
Romania started their campaign in solid style, building on a 1-1 draw against Northern Ireland with an excellent 3-2 triumph away in Austria.However, Mirel Radoi now faces a difficult task to lift a side which have suffered two costly defeats in less than a week, most notably against Iceland in the Euro 2020 playoffs.Radoi would have hoped that a stern test against Norway in this competition would have kept his players focused on earning promotion to section A, but a heavy 4-0 defeat has further highlighted their limitations.
Romania have recorded just one win in their last seven outings, and Radoi is aware that another setback on Wednesday will realistically end their hopes of progress in this tournament.Although he was appointed with future years in mind, their victory over Austria in the corresponding fixture last month was simply a brief upturn in their downward trajectory since Euro 2016.
There have been more positive signs from the visitors, who have won 16 of their 25 matches since the appointment of Franco Foda.While they have not squared off against any of the leading European nations over the past 12 months, a return of six victories from eight attempts can only be viewed as a positive.
