How Scotland and Romania play and some statistics
The Thistle has a solid forwards game (where the wing Jamie Ritchie stands out) but they are constantly looking for one of their main stars, Stuart Hogg, a player with an imposing physique who gives security from the back of the field. The Robles play a more physical game, although at a lower level than their opponents. They have very strong forwards at the time of contact but in general they are a team with little imagination and somewhat childish. They show some flaws in their defense. It is important to highlight the presence of the captain, Mihai Macovei.
