Saturday, the 30th of September will see another Pool B match where fans are treated to Scotland v Romania. The two sides will clash at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille, with kick-off at 8 p.m. IST.

Officiating this match will be Waynes Barnes on the pitch, Andrew Brace and Chris Busby on the touchlines, and Brendon Pickerill in the TMO bunker.

Scotland and Romania have played over 40 years of rugby tests against each other, meeting 13 times in total - three of which during World Cup group matches (1987, 2007, and 2011). In that time, Scotland have won 11 times and Romania have managed just the twice. History seems to favour the Scots, but will my analysis reveal a hidden plot lurking in the shadows? You'll soon find out with my Scotland v Romania prediction.

🔍 Scotland v Romania Winner Prediction

This is a must-win fixture for Scotland, and they will need to extract as many points as possible out of this match before facing Ireland next week in the do-or-die match of Pool B. A win in this round will keep the door to the knock-out stages open for another week, but how likely are Scottish fans to get the result they need?

The Scots are currently just in the top five teams in the world, according to the rankings, and Romania find themselves in 19th as a tier-two nation.

Gregor Townsend's men have also had an OK run in the competition so far. They may have fallen shy of the mark against South Africa, but it was a closer encounter than some would have expected at a final score of 18-3. They also put together an excellent win against Tonga, hammering the Pacific islanders 45-17. Romania, on the other hand, have had a woeful Rugby World Cup, having been slaughtered in their match against Ireland, 82-8 before falling to a second humiliation of 76-0 against South Africa. You have to give credit to Stejarii for playing their hearts out, but a points difference of 150 in the table is something at which Romanian fans likely only view through their fingers.

Scotland have come on leaps and bounds this year, and I think they may have a real shot of qualifying to the quarter-finals if other results in the pool go their way. Romania will play a proud game for their fans around the world, but I believe the Aberdeen Angus of the Scottish pack combined with the precision and devastating intensity of their backs will lead this to be another cricket score against the Balkan nation. I think Scotland will win this game by at least 55 points.

✔️ Scotland v Romania Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: Scotland to Win

So, your best option is Scotland to win at 1.001 at Betway. Whilst gambling should be seen as a bit of fun and not a get-rich-quick scheme - how many horror stories have you heard about irresponsible gambling? - the idea of risking €10 for €0.01 seems ridiculous to me - especially given that there are no guarantees in rugby! It's a pass from me.

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Romania to Win (+56.5)

I've already stated that I think Scotland are going to smash this game by 55 points, so the handicap bet that appeals to me most is Romania to win (+56.5) at 1.90 at Betway. Just remember, however, that Scotland will be desperate to score as many points as possible in this game, so be wise about what you bet in case they hand out an even greater beating than I expect.
