Wales v Moldova Preview, World Cup 2018, Qualifier, Monday 5th September 2016

After an excellent performance during the European Championship over the summer, the whole of Wales will no doubt be tuning in to see their team face off against Moldova on Monday night and the hosts are expected to win this game quite comfortably according to the online bookmakers.

Wales have been handed quite an easy group which consists of Serbia, Republic of Ireland, Georgia, Austria and Monday night’s visitors Moldova and most people will probably expect them to be amongst the top two nations in the group after their performances during the Euro’s.

Moldova have never qualified for the World Cup Final’s but have beaten Wales 3-2 during the 1996 European Championship’s qualifiers. However, this looks a very tough group for them and their outlook of qualification to the 2018 World Cup Final’s do look quite bleak at best.

Wales Team News:

The hosts will be without the services of both Aaron Ramsey and Jonathan Williams who are both recovering from respective injury related problems. Gareth Bale will lead the attack up front, but with fellow striker Robson-Kanu still without a club this season, he looks unlikely to feature.

Moldova Team News:

The visitors have no fresh injuries or suspensions and will probably line up with the same starting line up that lost 2-1 to Switzerland in their last International friendly match.

Wales v Moldova Head to Head Statistics:

Monday night’s game from the Cardiff City Stadium will become only the third ever meeting between the two nations and as we can see below from our head to head statistics table, it shows both countries having recorded one win each, which came during Euro 96 qualification.

Wales v Moldova Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Impossible to really give Moldova any chance of winning this game up against this Wales side who seems to look better and better each game they play. The visitors could possibly snatch a draw if they were really lucky on Monday night and Wales had an off game, but even that looks extremely unlikely.

Moldova have lost three of their last International matches played with their only victory coming against minnows Andorra which is hardly anything to get excited about.

Wales on the other hand are coming on the back of their best ever performance in a major tournament and the players will no doubt be very confident of picking up where they left off on Monday night in front of their home fans.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game will be for the match to see between 2 or 3 goals scored, as I am expecting something along the lines of a 2-0 or 3-0 victory for the hosts.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be for none other than Gareth Bale to open up the scoring for his side as with having been so instrumental during the Euro’s, the Real Madrid star will be licking his lips in anticipation of delivering yet another world class performance in front of his home fans.
