Belgium vs. Romania Analysis

Romania won their opening match, beating Ukraine by a convincing 3-0 score. It wasn't quite as lopsided on expected goals (xG), per FBRef's model, with Romania winning the xG battle 1.1-0.7.

Belgium suffered a shock 1-0 loss to Slovakia, but they were pretty unlucky. Belgium won on xG 1.6-0.6 and also had two goals chopped off by VAR.

The Belgians breezed through qualifying, recording six wins and two draws across eight matches.

Romania also went unbeaten in qualifying, winning six times and drawing four games over 10 matches, although it was a fairly soft slate of opponents outside of Switzerland.

Belgium vs. Romania Prediction

Belgium has a massive talent advantage, and that plays out via the models.

Opta's model has Belgium as 62.8% likely to win, with Romania's win odds at only 16.6%.

MasseyRatings is even higher on Belgium, giving them a 68% chance to take all three points.

Belgium's -220 moneyline -- per the Euro 2024 odds at FanDuel Sportsbook -- is a big number, but it implies win odds of 68.7%, which is right in line with MasseyRatings.
