Romania Team News:
Nicușor Bancu remains on the injury list and will miss the game against Malta. The 26-year-old midfielder, who can also play as a left-back, is the only player on the Romania's injury list at the moment.
Possible INs and OUTs of this game:
Alexandru Chipciu is set to return to the lineup after missing the Spain game due to a suspension. The 30-year-old right-back is expected to start ahead of Romario Benzar, who despite being a right-sided midfielder, was shoehorned at right-back in the last game.
Florin Andone came off the bench to score a goal and is pushing for a start here. If the Galatasaray striker starts, Claudiu Keșerü may be the guy making way for him in the starting 11.
