Germany have won three straight games for the first time in nearly two years as they return to the 2022 World Cup qualifying track at home against Romania on Friday.

Serge Gnabry finished alone in a tougher than expected fight against Mirel Rădoi’s men, which preceded a shock German defeat to North Macedonia three days later.
Hansi Flick’s side have won five and lost two of their nine games since then, on a three-game winning streak and hoping to make four on the rebound for the first time since 2017.
Romania occupy third place in Group J and have five points off the leaders before Matchday 7, with second place practically stalled if they pull off one of the biggest surprises in their history in Hamburg.
While the hosts have a squad reinforced by top talent from the Bundesliga, Premier League and beyond, Cagliari midfielder Răzvan Marin has confidence in his visiting team at the Volksparkstadion:
Romania have three games unbeaten before Friday, and like Germany, they have also kept clean sheets in each of those games, drawing 0-0 in North Macedonia last time around.
Rădoi has made the Tricolors savvy defensively in nearly two years as a first-team manager, but his attack is nowhere near as reliable and could use a touch of inspiration.
Veteran striker Claudiu Keșerü is the current squad’s top scorer with 13 goals in 46 caps, but the 34-year-old has been retired from the squad in recent times and has failed to score in his eight last appearances.
Leaders Flick will have a seven-point lead in the squad if Iceland can beat Armenia, while North Macedonia could rise above Rădoi’s side with a victory in Liechtenstein.
