Competition: EURO Nations League
Market: Wales win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Hoping to build off of their victory on foreign soil earlier in the week, Wales will welcome Bulgaria to an empty Cardiff on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, with new Cardiff arrival Kieffer Moore continuing on his eye-catching international run on Thursday night out in Finland, Wales opened their Nations League campaign with a noteworthy victory on foreign soil. Deserved winners earlier in the week and with the mood in their youthful camp at a real high, Ryan Giggs’ squad appear to be enjoying a real purple patch either side of football’s enforced break. Along with landing a 1-0 win out in Helsinki, the former Manchester United icon now finds his side in the midst of a seven-match unbeaten run and really showing some new-found resolve at the back. Also signing off their European qualifying campaign with back-to-back victories against Azerbaijan and Hungary, Wales should be looking to make another statement this weekend.
As for the visitors, left heartbroken after watching Ireland grab a 92nd-minute equalizer on Thursday night, Bulgaria have continued on what has been a worrying 18-month spell. Drastically struggling to make any real impact in their failed EURO 2021 qualifying campaign last year, the Greens have remarkably managed to win just one of their last 15 appearances across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to November 2018. Last seen on foreign soil playing out a lacklustre stalemate against whipping boys Montenegro back in November, Bulgaria have failed to land a win outside of Sofia over the past 24 months and are in desperate need of a morale boost. Hit with a 1-0 defeat when the two nations last faced off, we’re backing a similar outcome in the Welsh capital this weekend.
