Romania – Netherlands Predictions and Preview

  • In the midst of the sea of yellow in Frankfurt, Romania’s players listened to the pre-game rally from their manager, Edward Iordănescu, and achieved what he called a “historic moment” by progressing beyond the group stage of the European Championship for the first time since 2000.
  • Iordănescu vehemently denied claims that their 1-1 draw with Slovakia was manipulated to ensure the progression of both teams. The intensity of the fight and the total shot count of 22 suggested otherwise.
  • Thanks to taking points from two of their three group stage matches (W1, D1, L1), all of which they played as underdogs, Romania have secured a date with the Netherlands, Europe’s fifth-best team according to FIFA rankings.
  • Iordănescu’s men will certainly hope to leave a better impression than they did when they lost 2-0 to Belgium in the group stage. That was their sixth consecutive defeat against any of FIFA’s current top-ten nations.
  • Their most recent meeting with the Round of 16 opponents was against Ralf Rangnick’s Austria. They lost as marginal favourites (L 3-2), ending their five-game unbeaten run in competitive football (W4, D1).
  • An angry head coach, Ronald Koeman, slammed their performance as “appalling” and “awful.” This suggests he’ll go to great lengths to prevent a repeat performance.
  • Players to watch: Romanian midfielder Răzvan Marin rediscovered his scoring touch at this tournament, striking in two separate group stage matches. Dutch forward Memphis Depay equalized against Austria and will hope to repeat his feats from the previous H2H in 2017.
  • Hot streak: The Netherlands won each of the last four H2Hs by a 2+ goal margin.
