Belarus vs Wales prediction, odds and team news: Gareth Bale and co should be too strong for Belarus in Kazan

Wales are up against it if they are to get even close to qualifying from Group E but three points in Russia on Sunday will do their cause no harm and that is what Rob Page’s side should come away with.

Wales have clocked up a serious amount of air miles this summer having twice travelled to Azerbaijan during Euro 2020 and they are on their travels once again because this game is taking place behind closes doors in Kazan, Russia – a decision described by Page as ‘crazy’, because of international sanctions against Belarus.

Belarus benefit from passionate and often hostile support when they play in Minsk so it’s a blow to Georgi Kondratiev’s side to lose that backing and Wales can cash in.

Belarus, ranked 89 in the world, have already shipped 11 goals in three Group E games, although eight of those came against a rampant Belgium. They also managed to concede twice against Azerbaijan, ranked 112 in the world, in a June Friendly and they have kept only one clean sheet in their last eight matches.

Wales limped out of the Euros after a 4-0 thumping against Denmark but they acquitted themselves with great credit against Turkey and in the 1-0 defeat to Italy, and Sunday’s opposition represent a big dip in class.

Rob Page fielded an experimental side against Finland in the week and although Wales failed to break the deadlock, they created numerous good chances and really should have made the breakthrough from the penalty spot, but Harry Wilson fluffed his lines.

The loss of Aaron Ramsey is a blow but the likes of Daniel James and Joe Allen look set to join Gareth Bale in the Wales starting eleven so they have more than enough quality to cause Belarus major problems.

Wales are short enough to win this at 16/25 but we can boost that price to 13/10 with Grosvenor Sport by backing Wales to win to nil. Belarus have struggled in front of goal recently, netting just once in their last three outings.
