The last event which we have prepared for today is going to be from UEFA, Nations League, League C, Gr. 4 between the teams of Serbia and Romania. The game will be held in Stadion Partizana, Belgrade, Serbia. Meanwhile, the main referee who was assigned into the game is Vladislav Bezborodov, Russia. Moreover, the average yellow cards in this amazing contest are 4.44, that’s why our first tip is going to be from Over/Under Cards. Over 3.5 cards it looks great pick for betting and we will take it undoubtedly.
On paper, the Romanians, together with the Montenegrins, are perhaps the team that can thwart the Serbian group victory. However, Cosmin Contra's team remained guilty on matchday one and had to settle for a 2-1 at home to Montenegro. Therefore, the pressure is now already a bit on the Romanian shoulders, as a defeat would be synonymous with already five points behind after only two encounters. However, this situation does not change the fact that Serbia is considered to be the clear favourite against Romania in terms of betting odds. Who wants to bet on a success of Serbia against Romania, receives for it highest rate of 1.63.
The prelude last Friday was definitely on schedule. Thanks to a converted penalty from Dusan Tadic (38th), Serbia won with a routine 1-0 in Lithuania. In the end, the coaching staff around Chef Mladen Krstajic will have been satisfied with the result, but in terms of performance is certainly still plenty of room for improvement. By the way, Dusan Tadic missed the chance to win even more when he missed another penalty seven minutes from time. Real trembling was on the side of the "Beli Orlovi" yet announced, as the Baltic presented to harmless and not really dangerous to the gate of the Serbs came. This is likely to change on Monday evening when Romania travels a much stronger calibre to the capital Belgrade. For the Serbs, it is already a good opportunity a direct competitor to the group victory to five points to distance. There is nothing to shake the favourite role of the World Cup participant, which is mainly due to the home advantage and the greater individual quality.
If we said to the Serbian national team, that they are real "World Cup experts", because they were already twice at a World Cup, then the same applies to the Romanian selection, but in relation to the European Championship. In four of the past six editions, the "tri-colour" could qualify for the EURO. The last World Cup participation, however, is 20 years in the past (1998). When qualifying for the major event in Russia in 2018, the Romanians were far behind their own expectations. In ten games, only 13 points were collected (three wins, four draws, three defeats), so that in the final bill only fourth place was booked. Montenegro (16), Denmark (20) and Poland (25) were clearly on the move and therefore that with Cosmin Contra already in September 2017 a new trainer was installed, which followed on the German Christoph Daum. Initially, the ex-pro needed some time to put his ideas into practice, but now it seems like a team is emerging that is ready to surprise.
The start of the UEFA Nations League, on the other hand, would have been better for the Romanians. Home against Montenegro last week was just a 0-0 draw. In his very competitive game, the Romanians were the better team. Sixteen shots on the bulls-eye spoke a clear language, but in the end, the Contra-Elf missed a home win despite a 15-minute deficit from minute 77 onwards.
