Wales vs Belarus: Dragons can roar to convincing victory

Kick-off: 1945, 13/11/2021

Stadium: Cardiff City Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Wales are already assured of a place in the World Cup play-offs due to their Nations League exploits but are still chasing second place in Group E.

The Dragons could secure a home semi-final if runners-up to Belgium and will boost those hopes with a convincing victory versus Belarus.

With everything to gain and little to lose, we like 93/100 for the hosts to score in both halves for our first Wales vs Belarus prediction.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

Wales shaded a five-goal thriller when these teams met in Kazan a couple of months ago and are enjoying a good campaign.

The Dragons kicked off with a 3-1 loss in Belgium but are unbeaten in five subsequent qualifiers.

They have taken four points off both the Czech Republic and Estonia and have every chance of securing that second spot.

Robert Page’s side are only behind the Czechs on goal difference and have a game in hand, although their final fixture is against runaway table toppers Belgium on Tuesday.

That puts greater emphasis on trying to fire in a few goals here and having Gareth Bale back available is a huge boost, as he hit a hat-trick in the first meeting with Belarus.

Bale has recovered from a hamstring injury and Page said: “Gareth is in a good place. He’s exactly where we and the medical team thought he should be…he’s raring to go.”

Looking at the Wales vs Belarus odds, we reckon 21/20 for the Dragons to score more than twice is another solid option.

A Look At Belarus’ Betting Odds

Belarus are bottom of the table with just three points, courtesy of an opening 4-2 triumph over Estonia back in March.

The White Wings have since suffered six straight defeats, going down 8-0 to Belgium and 1-0 to the Czech Republic before the 3-2 loss to Wales.

Only losing 1-0 versus Belgium in Kazan was a gutsy effort but 2-0 defeats versus Estonia and the Czechs suggest their spirit has been broken.

Head coach Georgy Kondratyev has named a relatively young and inexperienced squad for this game and a friendly with Jordan.

Let’s go with 11/2 for a 3-0 home win to finish off our Wales vs Belarus betting tips.
