Gibraltar vs Wales Free Bets, Betting Tips & Predictions

Date:

Wales will begin their UEFA Nations League preparations in earnest with a visit to the Algarve on Thursday evening to take on Gibraltar.

After falling short in their attempts to qualify for Euro 2024, Wales will be targeting a convincing win over their opponents who are deemed international minnows.

Robert Page has picked five uncapped players for this friendly, with defenders Connor Roberts and Joe Rodon pulling out to face Gibraltar and Slovakia.

Gibraltar will be looking to frustrate Wales in the same way they did against Scotland before Steve Clarke’s men recorded a 2-0 win.

Indeed, it took 58 minutes for Scotland to break the deadlock against a team ranked 203rd in the world, despite being beset by injuries.

Can Gibraltar show the same kind of sturdiness that they did against Scotland?

I have provided some pre-match thoughts and unlocked a couple of betting tips for you to mull over ahead of kick-off.

Wales to make light work of Gibraltar

Given their stuttering performances during the opening games of Euro 2024 qualifying, it should come as little surprise that Page’s charges failed to punch their ticket to the Finals.

But their troubles should be put into some kind of context, Gibraltar have long been considered cast-offs on the international scene.

A 13-match losing streak underlines their malaise, and their last goal came in a 1-0 win over Andorra back in November 2022.

As mentioned, there were some positives for Gibraltar to take from the defeat to Scotland, and they made Clarke’s men work hard for the victory.

Wales coasted to a 4-0 victory when they faced Gibraltar in a friendly last October in Wrexham, and it could be a stress-free evening once again for Page’s charges.

For my first pick, I’ve gone with Wales to win & BTTS which is longer than the traditional to win to nil market at 11/5 with Ladbrokes if you are tempted.

Brennan Johnson to have a field day

Having shown glimpses of his promise at Tottenham last term, Brennan Johnson will be looking to kick on when the Premier League campaign resumes in August.

His pace is undoubtedly one of his biggest weapons, and he could twist the Gibraltar backline inside out, and he could well engineer plenty of opportunities.

Although his last goal for Wales came in a 4-1 thrashing of Finland back in March, Johnson may well rub his hands with glee at the prospect of facing Gibraltar and breaking his barren run.

To round things off, I’ve gone with a special and Johnson to fire off a treble, which if you fancy following up on, Ladbrokes is advertising a delectable price of 13/2.
