On his own ground he defeated only Iberian selected in 2018 and 2019.
Ionut Radu was not called for this action, with Silviu Lung being preferred.
Florin Andone was injured and will be missing for this reason. In the same situation is the captain Vlad Chiriches.
Another absentee is midfielder Paul Anton.
He is in 2nd place and has 15 points in the first 8 stages.
In 10 of the last 11 disputes he registered and in 5 of them he escaped without collecting a goal.
Spain is the only one who has lost in the previous 12 matches, and half of these matches won them.

⚽What is the form of the teams in the last 5 matches?
- Last result: 1-1 vs Norway
- Shape: D W W L W
Capital match for the national of Romania. In order to qualify for Euro 2020, the tricolors need four points double with Sweden and Spain.
The game with the Nordics is all or nothing – the Contra players need a 1-0 victory, or at least two goals difference.
The calculations would have been simpler if, in the last match of the National Arena, the Romanians did not escape between the fingers 2 points.
They scored empty, from the representative of Norway, in the 90 + 2 minute.
The Tricolors scored six times in the last four Group F disputes. All successes were after the break.
It is hard to believe that the Romanian team will attack in the first minute of the match with Sweden, even if it will be pushed back by 50,000 fans.
It remains to be seen what tactics the Contra will approach – he has to decide whether to call on a single attacker, or whether he will title Puscaș and Keșeru.
Injured on the club team, Florin Andone misses the yellow-blue duel.

The national of Sweden continues to be a nightmare for Romanians.
The elimination from the World Cup quarters of 1994. have not been forgotten yet.
In March, at the Friends Arena in Stockholm, the yellow-blue team secured their victory from the first half.
Quaison and Claesson scored, and the success of Keșeru didn’t matter.
For Sweden, the match with Romania is not decisive. Andersson’s band retains significant chances of qualifying even in the event of a failure.
If he loses he gets to two points behind the tricolors, but in the last stage he plays on his own field with the Faroe Islands.
Therefore, a defeat of Romania in Spain can provide Vikings with Euro tickets.
