NL: Romania - Serbia

Played at 16:00 on Sunday (Oct. 14th), on the National Arena in Bucharest



Squad:

Portari: Ciprian Tătărușanu (FC Nantes, 53/0), Costel Pantilimon (Nottingham Forest, 27/0), Florin Niță (Sparta Praga, 2/0)

Fundași: Romario Benzar (FCSB, 13/0), Cristian Manea (CFR Cluj, 4/1), Cristian Săpunaru (Kayserispor, 29/0), Alin Toșca (PAOK Salonic, 13/0), Gabriel Tamaș (Hapoel Haifa, 65/3), Ionuț Nedelcearu (FC Ufa, 2/0), Nicușor Bancu (U Craiova 1948 Club Sportiv, 5/0)

Mijlocași: Răzvan Marin (Standard Liege, 12/1), Tudor Băluță (FC Viitorul, 1/0), Adrian Stoian (Crotone, 2/0), Dorin Rotariu (AZ Alkmaar, 7/1), Nicolae Stanciu (Sparta Praga, 24/9), Alexandru Maxim (Mainz, 30/2), Alexandru Mitriță (U Craiova 1948 Club Sportiv, 5/0), Florin Tănase (FCSB, 3/0)

Atacanți: Claudiu Keșeru (Ludogoreț, 25/6), George Țucudean (CFR Cluj, 6/2), Denis Drăguș (FC Viitorul, 1/0)


Tadić and Mitrović are coming for blood.

We have quite a few absences: Chiriches, Pintilii, Andone, Chipciu, Budescu, Anton all potential starters given the circumstances, though probably not all together.

The Serbs are missing a few as well (Kolarov, Matić, Ljajić).

Possible team... unsure. Really not enough info to even try to guess.

Head-to-head: Serbia 5 played 1 win 1 draw 3 losses

I'll take a guess at the starting 11 but it's no more than that...

Possibility 1:

Tatarusanu

Manea -- Sapunaru -- Tamas -- Bancu

Marin -- Stoian

Rotariu ----- Stanciu ----- Maxim

Tucudean

Possibility 2:

Tatarusanu

Manea -- Nedelcearu -- Tamas -- Bancu

Marin -- Sapunaru

Maxim ----- Stanciu ----- Mitrita

Tucudean


Anton's card was a big blow. Maybe it's time to reactivate Bourceanu

I think Option 2 is a bit more likely. But maybe Contra will start another 19 year old vs Serbia.

Mitrovic, Tadic and Milinkovic. That's Serbia at the moment. If we can't stop those players we're ****ed.

Being realistic, winning this group is almost impossible. We need to win all the games remaining and I don't see it. Let's hope for a good group in the traditional qualifiers and Serbia qualifying directly (to see if we somehow can enter the play-off in case we need it).

Yeah, our team is only starting to build, many doubts and some weak spots

Next year we'll be stronger, but we could get an infernal group

So we need to aim for a win tomorrow, it's a team we drew away, not impossible

I'd play T.Baluta as starter. He was called for something and the boy needs a contact with the high level football.

His physique can be helpful.

Some reports say Tosca (as LB), T.Baluta, Maxim and Dragus will be starters.

I like the line up but I think our defense will be shaky.

With Stanciu it's like with Robben, you always know what he's gonna do/try (just on a different level). Baluta and Maxim looking good. Serbia's defense have Tucudean in their pocket.
We shouldn't waste set pieces like we do and we give set pieces away too easily.

Defense not good (our pressing is bad) and as always we are clueless in offense trying useless long balls when we counter.

Individually our players can do harm, but they don't combine

Stanciu having a bad day just like against Lithuania. We are going nowhere for decades now, is there any plan...?! It's painful to watch.

We can't repeat a team, and I can't blame Contra for that

Not smart from Tamas. Red card seems very harsh.

We are screwed again. They misssing the penalty gave one more life, but it's almost impossible
