Russia v Wales Preview, Euro 2016 Finals, Group B, Monday 20th June 2016

Russia have had a poor tournament so far, with their only real highlight being that late injury time equaliser against England in their opening match of the group. Since that 1-1 draw, Russia lost 2-1 against Slovakia and now sit bottom of the group and desperate for a victory if they are to stand any real chance of progressing through to the next round.

Wales have had a good tournament so far, but will have been very disappointed with their defeat against England last time out as it looked like they would hold on to a draw but for Daniel Sturridge to spoil their party with a world class near post finish deep into injury time.

Wales can still qualify for the next round though and a point in this game against Russia would be enough to see them through to the last 16.

Russia Team News:

Russia have no reported injuries or suspensions to contend with for their final match of the group, but with this match now being a must win game, the manager could make some changes to the side that lost 2-1 against Slovakia last time out and risk playing two strikers up front.

Wales Team News:

No injuries or suspensions for Wales either to worry about and they look likely to start with the same team that were so unlucky not to hold England to at least a draw in their last game played.

Gareth Bale will once again lead the welsh attack up front on his own as he looks for his third goal of the tournament.

Wales: D L L W L

Neither nation has been in particularly good form lately, but Wales just have the edge on the recent form statistics as they have managed one win, one draw and three defeats from their previous five matches played, compared to Russia who have won none, drawn two and lost three of their previous five matches played.

Russia v Wales Match Betting Odds Market

Russia need the maximum 3pts if they are to avoid being eliminated from the tournament and with a good record against Wales over the years their current best price available of 8/5 with BetVictor – Receive £25 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account does seem value and I can probably see quite a few people getting on the Russians to win this match.

The Draw is a current best price of 23/10 with SkyBet – Bet £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account and with Wales only needing a point to secure their place in the next round, this could be a sensible cover bet.

Wales will have felt very unlucky not to have secured a point against England last time out, but the side is playing well and all the playes will believe that they can win this game and their current odds on offer of 41/20 with Stan James – Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers Registering an Account also looks good value, especially with a certain Gareth Bale having scored two from two.

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

Russia have been a huge disappointment in this tournament so far and were extremely lucky to get a point from their opening match of the group against England.

A 2-1 defeat against Slovakia last time out has now put Russia bottom of the group and they must win this game to stand any real chance of progressing through to the next round, so I am expecting the Russians to go for broke in this game and attacking Wales straight from the first kick of the match.

Wales can qualify through to the last 16 if they can secure at least a point and with the way they defended against England last time out, they do look strong enough at the back to suggest that they can achieve this and with Gareth Bale looking a real threat from free kicks outside the box, the Real Madrid star could once again be the difference between the two sides.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip is going to be for this game to see Both Teams to Score as Russia have no option but to go all out for the win and this should leave enough space for Wales to exploit.

The last two meetings between the two nations has seen both teams score and I fully expect those statistics to continue when all is said and done on Monday night.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be for Gareth Bale to continue his excellent form shown so far in Wales opening two matches where he has scored two goals from free kicks outside the box as he really is the stand out player of both squads for this game and if he gets a chance, he will probably take it.
