ROMANIA v ALBANIA BETTING PREVIEWRomania opened their Euro 2016 campaign with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of hosts France. In the second match, they drew 1-1 with Switzerland and need a win to secure their place in the knockout stages. They have yet to score a goal from open play in this competition (two Bogdan Stancu penalties in two games) and have already conceded more goals in their opening two matches (3) than they did in the whole of qualifying (2).
Mihai Pintilii is a doubt after being withdrawn at half-time last time out and that could see Ovidiu Hoban and Andrei Prepelita starting in the double pivot roles in midfield. Up front, Keseru and Andone are in contention for the lone striker berth. As to the other positions, Anghel Iordanescu may stick with the starting XI who played against Switzerland last time out.
Albania still possess hope of reaching the last-16 with three points on Sunday. They went down to 10 men in their first game Switzerland and suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat as a dreadful error of the goalkeeper, Etrit Berisha, granted the Swiss team a 1-0 victory. Then, Gianni De Biasi's men fought bravely against France, but fell to a 2-0 late defeat as France scored both goals during the injury time.
Boss Gianni De Biasi can welcome back Lorik Cana after he missed their 2-0 defeat to France following his red card in their group opener. Burim Kukeli is suspended after he picked up two yellow cards in the first two matches and he will be replaced by Ergys Kace. The formation could be a 4-3-3 rather than a 4-5-1, with Sadiku, Lenjani and Roshi up front.
