  • Romania are on a 17-game unbeaten run in all competitions

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
