Congo DR vs Romania Team News
Key attacker Dieumerci Mbokani has been left out of the squad. The Norwich City ace will not take part in Wednesday’s friendly against Romania, but he will miss the 2017 Africa Cup of Nation qualifier against Madagascar. Fellow Premier League star Yannick Bolasie will be rested against Serbia, with Benik Afobe missing the game as well. Villarreal ace Cedric Bakambu is widely expected to lead the line for Congo DR against Romania.
Florin Andone, who plays for Segunda Division team Cordoba, misses the match due to club commitments. Ludogorets trio Prepelita, Keseru and Moti are out of contention as well, but they will return to the squad when Bulgaria national championship comes to an end. There are no new faces in the roster, but the likes of Dorian Goian, Raul Rusescu and Gabriel Tamas have been left out of the squad. Southampton defender Florian Gardos has yet to recover from his long-term injury.
Injured: Florian Gardos (14/0)

Congo DR vs Romania Prediction
Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia in Como will host Wednesday’s friendly between Congo DR and Romania. The Romanians were impressive at the back during their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign and considering that under 2.5 goals were netted in nine of Congo’s previous ten friendly matches, there is every chance we will see a low-scoring affair in Italy. Congo DR key attacker Mbokani will be sorely missed in Wednesday’s friendly and, taking everything into account, under 2.5 goals bet should be considered.
Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.40 (2/5) @Ladbrokes
