Wales vs Panama: Canal Men can hold Dragons in Cardiff
Odds: Wales 67/100, Draw 27/10, Panama 4/1
Kick Off: 1945, 14/11/2017
Stadium: Cardiff City Stadium
TV: BBC Two Wales
Wales have been hit by withdrawals ahead of Tuesday’s international friendly with World Cup qualifiers Panama and the hosts look worth opposing in Cardiff.
Real Madrid star Gareth Bale was one of several players to miss out on Friday’s 2-0 loss in France and now Arsenal ace Aaron Ramsey has pulled out of Chris Coleman’s squad.
The visitors have named an experienced starting line-up boasting almost 600 caps and are rated good value at 23/20 to avoid defeat in our Wales vs Panama betting predictions.
A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds
Having suffered a heart-breaking near-miss in their World Cup qualifying group, Wales were predictably outclassed when taking on Les Bleus in Paris.
The Dragons were a touch unfortunate with Olivier Giroud’s deflected effort, but France hit the woodwork three times in a dominant display.
Youngsters Ben Woodburn, Ethan Ampadu and David Brooks caught the eye as second-half substitutes at Stade de France and could now start, with Coleman keen to give them further experience ahead of the 2020 European Championship qualifiers.
Those next-generation prospects have done enough at youth level to suggest the future is bright for Wales, but whether they are ready to beat a battle-hardened team like Panama remains to be seen.
Looking at the Wales vs Panama odds, we like 27/10 for the score to finish level.
A Look At Panama’s Betting Odds
Panama only scraped through the North, Central America and Caribbean World Cup pool as a distant third behind Mexico and Costa Rica.
However, they did hold the table toppers to a draw on home turf and beat Costa Rica 2-1 in Panama City in last month’s final round of fixtures to edge out Honduras and the USA.
Captain Felipe Baloy and leading scorer Blas Perez are both in the twilight of their careers at 36, but the experience gained in securing over 200 caps between them will stand The Canal Men in good stead.
Dinamo Bucharest goalkeeper Jaime Penedo has made 127 appearances for his country, while Toronto midfielder Armando Cooper is closing in on a century of caps.
Lausanne striker Gabriel Torres is another player to watch out for, with the 29-year-old impressing at this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup and scoring from the penalty spot in Thursday 2-1 loss to Iran in Austria.
We’re completing our Wales vs Panama betting tips by taking 19/4 for a score draw as both teams look to entertain.
