World Cup – Qualification: Wales vs Serbia

Wales vs Serbia Betting Tip and Predictions. In the the qualifying round for the World Cup 2018, in Group D, Wales host Serbia at The Millennium Stadium, in Cardiff. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Wales vs Serbia.


Wales started the qualifications for the World Cup 2018 solid and after three rounds they are standing at the 3rd position with 5 points, two points lees than Serbia and Ireland. Home side started very good and smashed Moldova 4-0, but after that the next two games against Austria and Georgia were finished without winner. Wales had improved their performance in the last few years and they made the greatest result in their history, after they finished on the 3rd position on EURO 2016. Their main star Gareth Bale is in the great form and he is the one who can make the difference on the pitch. Good news for home side is that Aaron Ramsey, who has been absent since the summer, has recovered from an injury and he will be available for this game, but his form is questionable. Another player who play very good this season is Joe Allen and he will be very important in the midfield. In the last two matches between Wales vs Serbia, in the qualifications for the World Cup 2014, Wales was disappointed and lost both games (0-3, 6-1), but now they have much better team and playing very good football.

Serbia started very good the campaign for World Cup 2018 and they are sitting at the top of the table. Visitors missed the EURO 2012, EURO 2016 and World Cup 2014, so they will be fully motivated to qualify directly and play on the World Cup 2018 in Russia. In the first round they took only one point against Ireland (2-2), but they have improved their performance and won two matches in a row. In the second round they smashed Moldova 0-3, while in the last round Serbia beat Austria 3-2 upfront their supporters. Their new manager Slavoljub Muslin is doing good job so far and his formation with only three players in the defence give him the chance to include more players in the midfield and attack. They are creating many goal chances and scored at least two goals on each game, but their defence is a little bit shaky and that part of the team should improve their performance. Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov is suspended for this game and that’s a big blow for Serbia, but the good news is that Nemanja Matić get back in the squad after suspension and he will be in the first eleven against Wales.

Team News

Home side miss Collins and Davies, while on the other side visitors will be without suspended Kolarov.

Wales vs Serbia Predicted Lineups

Wales: Hennessey; Gunter, Chester, Williams, Taylor; King, Ledley, Allen; Ramsey; Bale, Vokes.
Serbia: Stojković; Rukavina, Ivanović, Nastasić, Mitrović, Tošić; Matić, Milivojević; Tadić, Mitrović, Kostić.

Wales vs Serbia Prediction

Home side is looking for the three points upfront their supporters and they believe that can win this game, but I can’t underestimate visitors who play very good. I expect interesting match between Wales vs Serbia in which both sides could be satisfied with one point, but I won’t be surprised if Serbia take all three points.
