Where’s the betting value in Romania vs Malta and Finland vs Italy?
<div><h2>Romania vs Malta</h2><p><strong>Sunday, September 8th, at Ilie Oană Stadium (Ploieşti)</strong></p><p>Romania’s 2-1 home defeat to Spain was their 2nd defeat in their previous 15 matches across all competitions. Despite the deserved defeat, Romania still have chances to book their EURO 2020 tickets and finish 2nd in the group after Spain. The hosts have impressed going forward in this group with coach Cosmin Contra promoting the stars of the Euro U21 team, Ianis Hagi and George Puscas but bringing in also experienced players like Nicolae Stanciu or Florin Andone. They’ve scored 13 goals in 5 matches, scoring at least twice in 4 of them. The reverse match saw a 4-0 Romania win with 2 goals scored by Reading’s striker George Puscas. On the other side, Malta earned just 3 points in 5 matches beating Faroe Islands in their group opener. They only managed to score just 2 goals so far conceding 12 in the process. They enter this match on the back of a 2-0 defeat in Norway, but they were very lucky to concede just 2 goals with Norway failing to covert into goals their 16 goal-scoring opportunities. Sweden and Norway are 3 and 1 point respectively above Romania in the standings, but they play each other this weekend so Romania have a great opportunity to close the gap on at least 1 of them by beating Malta on their turf. Romania should easily win this match by covering the -2.5 Asian Handicap line.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="EURO 2020 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Romania to win with -2.5 AH at 1.8 with Unibet</strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="EURO 2020 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Extra Tips: George Puscas and Florin Andone to be anytime goalscorers priced each at 1.72 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Finland vs Italy</h2><p><strong>Sunday, September 8th, at Ratina Stadion (Tampere)</strong></p><p>Italy’s coach Roberto Mancini is continuing to improve his team going into the tournament next summer. They are dominating their group sitting 1st in the standings with maximum points earned in 5 matches and a brilliant 16 goals scored in the process. On the other side, Finland are sitting 2 with 12 points losing just 1 game, the reverse match 2-0 away in Italy. Finland are another animal on their turf. They are scoring goals for fun they are winning matches with their player and Norwich’s star striker Teemu Pukki being in top shape. He scored 5 goals in 4 Premier League matches this season but he also helped his national team add 3 points to their group tally on Thursday by scoring the winning goal against Greece. They will surely enter this match determined to pull off the upset and beat Italy (which might be tougher than expected). Italy conceded in just 2 matches so far, but we expect them to struggle to keep a clean sheet against a talented Finish side. One of their best defenders Giorgio Chiellini is ruled out with an injury. Finland are dangerous on set pieces and we expect them to find the back of the net in this match.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="EURO 2020 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score at 2.2 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
