Romania reached the knockout stages in Germany following a successful campaign that saw them finish on top of Group E. Their stats showed one win, a draw, and a single defeat from three games, with four goals scored and three conceded. Interestingly, the Romanians posted the same number of points as Ukraine, who finished bottom of the pool in what was the tightest group of the lot.

It would be fair to say Team Romania benefited from a rub of the green and their fair share of luck, with each of the four teams in Group E collecting four points. But they won’t dwell on that too much as they now must set their sights on defeating the Netherlands. It’s now straight knockout football in Germany, and fans know anything can happen between now and the final. Will Romania progress? They are still in the race, and fans can’t ask for anything more from the players and coaching staff.

While their opponents progressed as group winners, the Netherlands scraped through by the tightest of margins to finish as one of the best-performing third-place finishers. If we were back in the previous format, when only the top two nations progressed from each pool, we would’ve already lost the Dutch at the earliest stage again. Thankfully for fans, they remain in the competition thanks to a safety net and a heap of good fortune.

The Duch posted Group D stats of one win, a draw, and a defeat, scoring four goals and conceding four. That means despite finishing third in their pool and playing the winners of Group E, the Netherlands didn’t perform any worse than their opponents. Tuesday’s game becomes a real 50/50, and it’s anyone’s guess which nation will progress if judging this one of the stats and the form of both teams in Germany.

Romania vs Netherlands H2H Record and Key Numbers

The head-to-head stats show Romania and the Netherlands have met 14 times previously, with the Dutch winning ten games, Romania with one victory, and three matches ending in a draw. The most recent clash produced a 3-0 victory for the Netherlands back in 2017, and fans would love anything near a repeat performance.

Despite the Dutch dominance of this fixture, it’s worth noting that the teams have met only once at a major tournament, and that clash resulted in a confident Netherlands win at the group stage of Euro 2008. Will you follow the stats and back the Netherlands to land an 11th win, or will Romania grab their second success?

Possible Lineups

  • Romania (4-1-4-1): Nita – Bancu, Burca, Dragusin, Ratiu – Marin – Coman, Stanciu, Marin, Hagi – Dragus
  • Netherlands (4-3-3): Verbruggen – Ake, van Dijk, de Vrij, Dumfries – Veerman, Schouten, Simons – Reijnders, Gakpo, Depay

Here, we have a meeting of two ambitious teams that performed well in the group stages without doing anything out of the ordinary. We’re happy to hazard a guess that Romania is playing its best football and deserves to be here, while the Dutch are yet to hit top gear, and there’s more to come from the camp.

If the Netherlands is anywhere near its best, it will get the job done and progress with room to spare. Back the Netherlands to win the game and continue their adventure, or aim higher and go with the Netherlands -1 goal on the handicap at higher odds.
