Competition: Nations League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/13 @ 888sport
Looking to sign off their Nations League campaign with three points and top spot, Wales will welcome Finland to Cardiff on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while they still might not have Ryan Giggs in their dugout, Wales managed to secure a 1-0 win against British rivals Ireland over the weekend and have impressed many in this year’s tournament. Sat in pole position to secure promotion to League A for next time, the Dragons find themselves enjoying a real purple patch. Despite their expected defeat away at Wembley last month, they have managed to collect 13 points in their five Nations League appearances and have really impressed with their performances at the back. Along with collecting a 1-0 win away in Finland when they opened this year’s campaign, it should also be noted that Wales are yet to concede a single Nations League strike so far this season.
As for the visitors, shocking many across Europe as they secured what was a famous 2-0 win in Paris last week, there is no doubt that the mood in Finland’s camp should be at a red-hot high. Keeping up that momentum with victory away at Bulgaria on Sunday, Markku Kanerva’s men are enjoying a four-match winning run across all competitions and will be looking to right their wrong in Cardiff. Knowing that three points on Wednesday will see them secure promotion to League A and leapfrog Wales, Finland have also impressed with their own displays at the back. Recording that shock clean sheet away at the defending world champions last week, Huuhkajat have conceded just a single Nations League goal in over 350 minutes of action.
