Belarus vs Wales: Dragons to shade Kazan clash

Kick-off: 1400, 05/09/2021

Stadium: Central Stadium, Kazan

TV: Sky Sports

Wales will be eyeing a crucial win away to Belarus as the race to finish second behind Belgium in World Cup qualifying Group E hots up.

The Dragons look set to fight it out with the Czech Republic for the runner-up spot and have already beaten their rivals in Cardiff.

Seeing off the lesser lights is just as important, though, and we’re taking 8/13 for the visitors to prevail as our first Belarus vs Wales prediction.

A Look At Belarus’ Betting Odds

Belarus kicked off their campaign with an encouraging 4-2 triumph over Estonia, when Vitaly Lisakovich bagged a brace of goals.

However, the White Wings then had their limitations ruthlessly exposed in an 8-0 drubbing by Belgium.

Thursday’s 1-0 defeat by the Czech Republic in Ostrava was a more respectable effort.

Wales were clearly superior when successful in a friendly between these teams two years ago, though, when they should have added to an early Dan James strike.

James will be keen to celebrate his big-money move from Manchester United to Leeds and 6/1 for him to score first again catches the eye from the Belarus vs Wales odds.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

Interim Wales boss Robert Page has described going to the Russian city of Kazan for this fixture as a “logistical nightmare” but a professional approach is assured.

The Dragons emerged from Euro 2020 with plenty of credit, drawing with Switzerland and beating Turkey before losing to Italy and Denmark, even if they did go down 4-0 in that last contest.

Back in March, they recovered from a 3-1 loss to Belgium in Leuven by edging out the Czech Republic 1-0, with James again the match winner.

Having won four of last year’s six Nations League games 1-0, there is a recurring theme for punters to consider.

Wales warmed up for this game with a goalless stalemate versus Finland but would have shaded it had Harry Wilson’s first-half penalty not been saved.

Let’s finish off our Belarus vs Wales betting tips by taking 23/10 for the Dragons to win by any one-goal margin.
