After Iceland is before Romania. In the second game of the 2022 World Cup qualifying, the DFB team has to play against the Romanian national team on March 28, 2021 at 8:45 p.m. in the Arena Nationala in Bucharest. As against Iceland, the German national team is the favorite in this game.
At the start of qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the German national team presented itself in good shape. With two early goals from Goretzka and Havertz, Germany were already 2-0 up after 7 minutes, and ManCity star Ilkay Gündogan set the final score in the second half in 56 minutes. Romania was also able to look forward to a 3-2 opening win against outsiders North Macedonia.
Changes by Jogi Löw after the first game are quite possible – also because both Süle and Gosens could be part of the game again after muscular problems in the EURO 2021 venue Bucharest. Midfielder and playmaker Toni Kroos, however, is still out, and Leroy Sane looked a bit battered in the Iceland game and could be spared against Romania.
We dug out the most important statistics and information and provide you with possible lineups of both teams, the current squad and give in our forecast a tip on how the duel Romania vs. Germany could end.

Romania – Germany: The best odds & tips
No bookmaker gives Romania good chances against Germany in the 2022 World Cup qualifying odds. Tipico has a betting rate of 10.0 for the home team Romania, while the 2014 world champion Germany currently has a relatively low rate of 1.30.
* The odds can change constantly.
Of course, it is clear that the DFB team will almost always be favorites against teams like Romania due to the broad base in football. However, one or the other surprising loss of points can happen again and again. By the way, Betway currently gives you odds of 5.25 for a draw tip.
Romania is currently in 37th place in the world rankings. At the upcoming EM 2021, the Romanians under coach Mirel Radoi could have looked forward to home games in the Arena Nationala, but they failed in qualifying.
The full focus is now on the games in the 2022 World Cup qualification. It will definitely be difficult against a top nation like Germany, but the Romanians certainly have good cards in the fight for second place and the associated playoff place.
In our forecast, we are betting on a 2-0 away win for the Germans and think that the higher quality in the squad will be decisive. In the penultimate World Cup qualifying game by Jogi Löw, Kimmich, Gnabry and Co. should not be tripped in the DFB jersey.
