Man of the second Cicaldau is predicted to retain his spot in assault for Romania, whereas skipper Vlad Chiriches might preserve his spot on the coronary heart of the defence.
After selecting up their first level in qualifying final day out, Sangol is unlikely to make too many modifications to his workforce this time round.
