Match preview

A huge relegation six-pointer in Helsinki, with both nations desperate to remain in League B.

When these two met in București in June, Nicușor Bancu was the only scorer in a 1-0 Romania victory.

However, Edward Iordănescu’s side have actually lost their other three matches in this group, conceding six goals and scoring none.

Most recently, the Tricolours were hammered 3-0 by Montenegro at Stadionul Rapid-Giulești, their biggest competitive home defeat since 2016.

Thus, Romania sit rock bottom of this section, staring down the barrel of relegation to League C.

Realistically, the only team they can catch are Finland, who kick off just one point above their visitors.

The Eagles-Owls are unbeaten at home in this group, drawing 1-1 with Bosnia before a 2-0 victory over Montenegro.

Joel Pohjanpalo with a brace in the latter, a result that means Finland have only lost four of their last 19 competitive home fixtures.

These defeats, incidentally, have come at the hands of France, Ukraine, Wales and Italy.

That’s great news for Markku Kanerva’s team who know victory here would secure their second-tier status, thereby sending Romania down.

Who will win this pivotal clash at Helsinki Olympic Stadium?
