Over 1.5 first half goals 
Brennan Johnson to score first

Gibraltar v Wales
Friendly match at the Estadio Algarve
TV: Premier Sports 1/S4C on Thursday, 5:00pm

Despite missing out on Euro 2024 qualification, Rob Page’s Wales are still in action this month, with a friendly double header against Gibraltar and Slovakia this month. The Dragons take Gibraltar in the sunny Algrave, but heading to Slovakia to help prepare their hosts for the tournament.

What might have been, eh?

Over 3.5 goals

Wales failed to fire when it really mattered, as they eventually lost out in a Euro 2024 playoff final on penalties against Poland, following a 0-0 draw across 120 minutes in Cardiff. Page’s team smashed in four goals in their semi final win over Finland and they do carry a real forward threat.

With no Euros on the horizon, Page will be looking for some positives to take into the September’s UEFA Nations League games, and his side hammered Gibraltar 4-0 in Wrexham back in October.

Over 1.5 first half goals 

Wales’ four goals against Gibraltar in October, and their four against Finland in March, included an even spread as they scored two either side of the break in the latter. The victory against Gibraltar was more straightforward with a 4-0 lead at half time.

Wales have scored in the first half in five of their last seven games and will fancy their chances against a dismal Gibraltar defence.

Brennan Johnson to score first

Page has opted for a rotated squad for these games, with captain Aaron Ramsey not included, on the back of a demanding campaign in the EFL Championship. Tottenham striker Brennan Johnson enjoyed a mixed first season in London, ending the campaign with five Premier League goals, as Wales’ leading scorer in the top flight.

He found the back of the net for Wales in that win over Finland and will be looking for a boost ahead of preseason back at Spurs.

Daniel James to score anytime

Daniel James was also on target against Finland, but the Leeds United winger missed the crucial spot kick against Poland. and missed out on Premier League promotion with his club side last month.

The nippy attacker will be looking to take some of that frustration out on Gibraltar on the back of netting 13 league goals for Leeds in 2023/24.
