Tuesday's Brilliant Soccer Selections Wholistically Analysed To Stake On

FINLAND VS WALES.

Wednesday night’s friendly in Helsinki isn’t exactly a priority for Wales, but Robert Page’s men should outpoint a Finland side who they beat twice in last year’s UEFA Nations League.

The Welsh have crucial World Cup Qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia upcoming in the international break, and both are must win affairs for The Dragons who appear to be in direct combat with Czech Republic for the runners-up spot behind Belgium in Group E.

Page could tinker with his line-up as a result for this midweek clash, though Wales still have to be sided with from a betting perspective after beating their opponents 0-1 here last September, before a 3-1 November victory in Cardiff.

Wales had a fair Euro 2020 campaign all told and probably did as expected by progressing from the group stage. Denmark steamrollered The Dragons 4-0 in the last 16, but that result shouldn’t deter punters too much here. The Welsh are someway behind Europe’s leading nations, but they’ve been extremely consistent against those below the top echelons in recent times.

As well as their defeat to Denmark, Wales have lost to England, Belgium. France and Italy over the past two years, however, their 18 other starts in that period have yielded 12 wins and six draws, including that pair of wins against the Finns.

With Finland winning just one and losing six of their last nine outings (and that sole success came in extreme circumstances against the Danes at Euro 2020), Wales are our fancy for small stakes in this one and we’re also tipping up a 0-1 correct score, with the hosts failing to net in four of their last five matches.
