My name is Dave, a European football enthusiast, I believe all leagues have their own charms. This is the reason why I have been watching and studying those less popular leagues for 20 years.

Romania face off with Iceland in Thursday’s big WC Qualifiers - Europe fixture.
Romania are in second spot and already out of the running for automatic qualification. They have won five of their last seven matches across all competitions on home soil. Romania boosted their hopes of World Cup qualification after securing a slender 1-0 victory in a crucial encounter against Armenia last month. Romania have a tight defence as they have conced only 3 goals their previous 6 outings standing.
Currently sit in fifth spot on eight points, Iceland be looking to extend their unbeaten away run to three games. Iceland's hopes of qualifying for their second successive World Cup are hanging by a thread, despite their comfortable 4-0 victory against Liechtenstein in their most recent match last month. Iceland head into Thursday's clash with a decent away record in 2021, winning two and drawing one of their last four matches on the road across all competitions
Romania have won three of their four encounters against Iceland, including a 2-0 victory away from home in September. And they need two wins from their final two games against Iceland and Liechtenstein to secure a playoff berth. Therefore, expect the hosts to secure maximum points with a narrow victory in front of their fans.
Romania to Win
