Wales – Belgium
Wales will face Belgium in Cardiff in a match from League A of the UEFA Nations League. Let’s preview this clash in our soccer bet picks.
Wales just qualified for the World Cup and that’s the most important thing, but in the Nations League they started pretty badly – with two consecutive losses. At this moment the Dragons are 4th in their group and they can feel the danger of being relegated back to League B. They must look for some wins now.
On Wednesday Rob Page’s team suffered a second consecutive loss in the group. The Dragons hosted Netherlands, but finished the game with a 1-2 defeat. It was not a good experience as they conceded the second goal in the 94th minute. It was a bad luck to suffer something like that.
Wales’ top star Gareth Bale could be returning to the line-up on Saturday. The striker started from the bench in the previous game.
Belgium made a solid statement on Wednesday when they scored six times for a terrific 6-1 win over Poland. This was the best way to answer the critics after the 1-4 defeat against Netherlands. Now Belgium are back in the game for eventually winning this group.
It was a near perfect performance by the Red Devils. Brighton & Hove’s Leandro Trossard scored a brace while Witsel, De Bruyne, Dendoncker and Openda scored as well. Eden Hazard started the game and didn’t score a goal, but provided an assist for De Bruyne’s goal in the second half.
Romelu Lukaku remains injured for Belgium and most likely he won’t play in the next game.
That’s the soccer bet picks for the Nations League game between Wales and Belgium on Saturday. The Dragons look for a first point in this group, but the Red Devils showed us what they can do in their last game.
