This Friday, Helsinki will host the match of the fifth matchday of the Nations League between the national teams of Finland and Romania.
At the start of the tournament, Finland were the main favorite of the B3 quartet, but after four rounds, they only hold the third position with four points in their asset and a goal difference of 5:5. Moreover, the Eagle-owls have a minimal advantage over Montenegro (2:0), and they failed duels with Bosnia (1:1, 2:3) and Romania (0:1).
However, Romania's performance is even worse - fourth place, three credit points and a 1:6 scored-conceded ratio. The Tricolors' only achievement was their 1-0 home win against Finland, while in other cases there were defeats against Montenegro (0:2, 0:3) and Bosnia (0:1).
Finnish football has progressed a little over the past few years, while the once formidable Romania cannot even make it to the European Championship. We believe that this match will be held with a slight advantage of the more ambitious hosts.
