Germany is pretty much at the top of Group J, and they will try to move further away from their rivals in the group with another win this week. Romania will be the visitors as they want to move up to second place.
Preview World Cup Qualifying
Germany has a strong hold on Group J after six matches in qualifiers. It seems increasingly unlikely that they will be taken to the top of the standings, as they hold a four-point lead with just four qualifiers to go.
Germany’s form since a disappointing show at the EUROs is excellent as they have won all three international matches they have played. During this series of forms, they have scored 12 goals and have yet to concede. Their biggest win came in the form of a 6-0 win against Armenia, with Serge Gnabry scoring twice and further goals added by Timo Werner, Marco Reus and Jonas Hofmann. Their most recent win was another impressive success, beating Iceland 4-0.
Romania haven’t made it to the World Cup final since 1998, but they seem to be in a good position to finish second in this group. They are currently just a point behind Armenia in the second round, having won three times in qualifying so far.
Romania showed excellent form in the last international match, winning two of the three games they played. Like Germany, they did not concede a goal in their games in September, as they claimed victories against Iceland and Liechtenstein, before drawing 0-0 against North Macedonia. Their 2-0 win over Iceland was their biggest success, with goals scored in the away game by Dennis Man and Nicolae Stanclu.
Germany vs Romania Head to Head
Germany won nine of the 14 matches it played against Romania. Their most recent win came earlier in the qualifying campaign, winning 1-0 away from home. Romania’s last win in this match was a famous 5-1 success in a friendly match in 2004.
Germany vs Romania Prediction
Romania certainly seems to be the second best team in Group J, but they face a challenge to get something out of this match in Germany. The hosts have more than enough quality to get the win they need to extend their lead at the top, and they should claim a narrow win in Hamburg.
