Wales v Cyprus Preview, Euro 2016 Qualification, Monday 13th October 2014

Wales have had a good start to their 2016 European Championship finals qualification. Chris Coleman’s side were comfortable 2-1 winners away against Andorra in their opening game of the group and followed that up with a 0-0 draw at home to Bosnia-Herzegovina and another 3pts from this game at home against Cyprus on monday night would put them in a very good position to qualify for the finals in france.

Cyprus also won their opening game of the group when beating Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-1 away from home, but could not manage to follow that victory up in their second game, which they lost 2-1 away to Israel and now find themselves needing to secure at least something from this game to keep their hopes alive of qualification to the finals.

Wales Team News:

Aaron Ramsey, Sam Vokes and Joe Allen continue to remain unavailable for manager Chris Coleman as they continue to recieve treatment for respective injury problems. Gareth Bale will be looking to add to his two goals that he scored against Andorra in the opening game of the group and take up a position just behind striker Simon Church.

Cyprus Team News:

Manager Pambos Christodoulou has no reported injuries or suspensions to his squad and will most likely start with the same side that lost 2-1 at home against Israel last time out with 26 year old striker Dimitris Christofi looking also to add to his two goals that he scored in the 2-1 victory against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Wales v Cyprus Match Betting Odds Market

Wales have started the group well and have a good record against Cyprus at the Cardiff City Stadium, but they do have some of their key players missing through injury and for me their current best price of 4/9 with Coral – Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets, does look a bit on the short side in terms of value.

The Draw has not occured in any of the previous five meetings between the two countries, but with Cyprus desperate not to drop any more points, it could be a wise choice choice to get at least something on this game finishing all square as your main cover bet at a current best price of 7/2 with Bet365 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers.

Cyprus obviously know that they must get at least something from this game to stay in contention of having any chance of making the top two places in the group and with Wales not as strong as they could be due to injuries, the visitors will see this game as a real opportunity to cause a bit of an upset and do look value at their current odds of 8/1 with Ladbrokes – £100 Free Bets for New Customers.

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

Wales have a great opportunity to secure another important 3pts from this game against Cyprus on monday night and it will have certainly been a game that manager Chris Coleman had underlined as one that they should win once the group teams were announced.

However with a number of injuries to key players, this game could turn out to be more difficult than expected as with Cyprus having already caused a bit of an upset by beating Bosnia-Herzegovina in their opening game of the group the Crypriot’s will definitely see this as a game that they can win with Wales being under strength.

The average goals per game statistics are suggesting this match to see at least a couple of goals scored and with Gareth Bale in the form of his life at the moment he looks the perfect choice to opening up the scoring for the hosts in what should be a Wales victory come the full time whistle.
