Wales are in a good place under Robert Page. The Reds finished second in their World Cup qualifying group behind Belgium and it was always going to be a tough task when it came to finishing above the Red Devils. However, their 3-1 reverse in Leuven was followed by seven successive matches without a defeat which included four wins and three draws.

Their matches haven’t always been spectacular, with just fourteen goals scored and nine conceded during qualifying although some pragmatism is required when you don’t have a big pool of players upon which to draw. However, it’s noticeable that Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey have both been included in the latest squad.

Since being thrashed 4-0 by Denmark at the 2020 European Championships, Wales haven’t lost a single game and that is a run now stretching over seven matches. Most recently, Page’s side held Belgium to a 1-1 draw and that came three days after a 5-1 thrashing of Belarus which will instil confidence for this encounter.

Austria Betting Favourites to Beat Wales

Austria are a difficult team to fathom. They are only in the World Cup qualifying play-off after their success in the Nations League, although the bottom line is that they finished fourth in the group stage of World Cup qualifying and the only sides below them were Moldova and Faroe Islands. Four defeats occurred during that phase and a sum total of seventeen goals were conceded.

Franco Foda remains in charge of the Austrian national team and there have been some calamitous defeats including a 5-2 beating at the hands of Israel. They were also beaten 4-0 at home to Denmark, although the visitors do come into this clash with lots of confidence after 4-1 and 4-2 victories over Moldova and Israel respectively.

Marko Arnautović and Marcel Sabitzer are likely to be the men tasked with finding a way to score in Cardiff, with Aleksandar Dragovic and David Alaba among the more experienced defenders within the ranks although it’s hard to trust a team who are so erratic when it comes to recent results.

What Are the Best Bets for Wales v Austria?

We’re going to keep this simple. Wales look a really good bet to win this game. They are never knowingly beaten and continue to have amazing team spirit. The return of Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey will be a big boost for a team who don’t tend to lose many matches and there are some bright young players who can rise to the challenge.

The Welsh have shown that they can match Belgium over ninety minutes recently, with Dan James looking lively for Leeds United over the past few matches and the Tottenham pair of Ben Davies and Joe Rodon tend to be strong for their country, with Harry Wilson having been a livewire for Fulham as part of their promotion season.

Wales do tend to concede at least the odd goal and perhaps you might secure bigger odds by backing them to win and both teams to find the net. When it comes to correct score betting, it might be worth considering a 2-1 or a 3-1 victory in favour of the home side.
