Wales vs Finland Match Preview and Prediction

Wales vs Finland: Wales has scored goals in all three of its recent encounters. Finland’s last four qualifiers all featured three goals or more. In his previous eight Serie B games for Venezia, Joel Pohjanpalo scored 10 goals.

On Thursday night, there will be a lot of excitement in and around Cardiff City Stadium. For Wales, it’s playoff time once more. In the semifinals of the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifying playoffs, they will host Finland.

The Dragons had a few notable performances throughout the previous year’s qualifying campaign. In the struggle for the top two spots in Group D, teams like Croatia and Turkey finally proved to be too strong for them. Even yet, it says volumes that this Welsh team only lost two of their eight games in such a competitive league.

Finland had a successful qualifying campaign the previous year as well. Despite winning six of 10 games in Group H, they were four points behind Slovenia and Denmark for the top two spots. With the attacking performances his team has exhibited in the last two qualifiers, head coach Markku Kanerva can be highly satisfied. In November of last year, Finland scored six goals in back-to-back victories over San Marino and Northern Ireland.

Wales vs Finland: Betting Analysis

The last friendly between these two clubs took place in September 2021. There was no goal at the end of the match. Wales enters this game having faced Finland three times previously, winning two and drawing one. Of the four prior head-to-head matches between these rivals, just one resulted in three or more goals.

Although Wales is considered the favorite to win at home, we don’t think it makes sense to support them at 1.85 odds. Alternatively, the goal markets offer much better betting opportunities. At the 2.20 price point, we are especially interested in the selection of both teams to score. This may appear to be a low-scoring game to the typical football fan.

Although Danny Ward only gave up four goals in his last game for Leicester’s U-21 team, he will probably start. Wales has now scored goals in all three of its recent games. We have to aim for the Both Teams To Score wager at 2.20 odds because Finland has scored three goals or more in each of their last four qualifying matches.

Finland not to lose in the ninety minutes of play is the second wager, with odds of 1.95. The visiting team features a number of players who are hot right now and could exploit the weak Welsh defense. We specifically mention Joel Pohjanpaolo. In his previous eight Serie B outings for Venezia, the striker scored 10 goals.

The run includes a brace in Friday night’s 3-0 away thrashing of Palermo. We can find value in this wager given the circumstances surrounding the Welsh goalie and Finland’s strong qualification campaign.
