A clash that a lot of rugby fans would normally not get to enjoy on the telly, week four also has Italy v Romania in store for us. Kick-off will be 5.30 p.m. at the Stadio Riviera delle Palme in San Benedetto del Tronto, and I think it should be an exciting encounter, despite Romania being a tier-two side.

The ref for this test will be Luke Pearce. The Welshman boasts an officiating career of over 10 years, with his first international test in 2013 actually being Romania v Russia.

It may come as a surprise to some, but Italy v Romania is an encounter that has happened more times than games that the home side has played in the Six Nations. Of the 42 tests played, Italy have won 23 times, Romania have won 16, and there have been three tied games. Last time out, Romania took a 13-45 drubbing, but perhaps, in light of both nations building towards the Rugby World Cup in mere weeks, we will see a different result on Saturday. Read on for my full Italy v Romania prediction insight.

🔍 Italy v Romania Match Winner Prediction

One of the key indicators for my rugby-betting predictions is form, and Scotland v Italy and Ireland v Italy have both ended in long, sulky walks back to the changing room for gli Azzurri. On the other hand, this will be the first run-out in the Summer Internationals for Stejarii, so it will be interesting to see the style of play for which they opt to combat Italy.

On paper, this is an easy game to predict: a tier-one team versus one from tier two - even if we are talking about the bottom of tier one and the historically established zenith of tier two. I think the gap in quality between the two teams will end up showing, but I don't think we'll see the kind of score difference that we did last time. I would put my money on Italy to win by at least 14 points.

✔️ Italy v Romania Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: Italy to Win

Let's keep it simple: your best option if the most obvious scenario plays out is Italy to win at 1.01 at TonyBet Sports. Are you interested in odds where your return would be €0.10 if you staked a €10 and you would be exposed to the risk of a shock defeat if Italy put out their second team to play? I'm not. Let's look at the handicap odds in the next section.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Italy to Win (-0)

This is where all the intrigue about any Italy v Romania betting comes in. I think this is going to be a much tighter game than last year's 13-45 spanking, so I would be more than happy to gift 37 points to Romania and go for Romania to win (+37) at 1.91 at BoyleSports. There wasn't even a 37-point gap in the last game, and I suspect that Italy are going to use this opportunity against a weaker side to blood some youngsters ahead of the Rugby World Cup. As ever, though, be sensible with what you are willing to bet. I don't want to see any of you betting the shirt of your back. Please, please, please gamble responsibly!
