Finland Vs Wales Prediction, Odds And Team News

Wales return to international action for the first time since the European Championships when they take on Finland on Wednesday evening.

The Welsh savoured yet another Euro adventure in the summer, but tonight’s friendly with the Finns is all about building momentum, with the Dragons bidding to reach a World Cup for the first time since 1958.

Robert Page’s side didn’t quite replicate their heroics of the class of 2016, however, their campaign was still a successful one after coming through a tough group with Turkey, Switzerland and eventual tournament winners Italy.

There hasn’t been much between these two nations in recent years, with Wales claiming six victories, Finland four and the other four meetings ending in stalemates.

Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Finland vs Wales to get your teeth stuck into.

Prediction: 0-1 (11/2)

Half-Time/Full-Time: Draw/Wales (10/3)

Wales will be looking to warm up for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers with a win when they travel to Helsinki to take on Finland in tonight’s friendly encounter.

The opponents met each other twice in 2020 in the Nations League and Wales won both games and we’re backing the Welsh to continue that fine form and lead from the first to last whistle in this one.

First Goalscorer: Gareth Bale (7/2)

Gareth Bale walked away when he was asked about his international future following the last-16 defeat by Denmark at Euro 2020.

Since then, though, Bale has since been named in Wales' squad for their World Cup qualifiers this month and we’re backing the Real Madrid outcast to silence his critics and draw first blood this evening.

Win to Nil: Wales (3/1)

Wales have found the net just three times in six matches, however, they did run out 1-0 winners at this ground in last year’s Nations League meeting.

Based on that performance alone, we’re backing the Welsh to have what it take to claim another victory in the Finns' backyard, all while keeping a clean sheet.
