Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Romania will look to keep their 100% record in meetings with Andorra intact when the two sides face each other at Estadi Nacional on Saturday evening. The Tricolori have big ambitions for the upcoming qualifying campaign, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Andorra in their opener. A man to watch in the home team will be Al Jazira attacker Florin Tanase, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.
The outsiders, on the other hand, suffered a shocking loss to fellow minnows Gibraltar in a November friendly, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered. Romania do not suit Andorra; therefore, we do not believe that the underdogs are going to claim a major scalp in Saturday’s encounter. In their last meeting in a competitive match Romania outclassed Andorra 4-0.
Highlighted Team (Romania):
Romania were one of just four European sides to take part at the first ever World Cup in 1930, and the team have since achieved respectable results on the international stage, albeit failing to challenge for major trophies.
Led by arguably their best ever footballer Gheorghe Hagi, the Tricolorii narrowly missed out on the semi-finals at the 1994 World Cup in the United States, losing to Sweden on penalties. Romania made a total of seven appearances at the World Cup finals, while qualifying for five European Championship tournaments. The Tricolorii went the farthest in 2000, when they were eliminated by Italy in the quarter-finals.
Tied at the top of the goalscoring charts, Gheorghe Hagi and Adrian Mutu are the only two Romanian footballers to have gained worldwide recognition, but Dorinel Munteanu, Dan Petrescu, Gheorghe Popescu and Viorel Moldovan are also worth mention. Romania play their home games at the Arena National in Bucarest.
