Stadium: A. Le Coq Arena (Tallinn)
In the first-round match between Estonia and Wales, the teams drew 0-0. Will the opponents be able to decide the winner in this encounter? We predict that this time, the Dragons will be much stronger than their opponents!
The Estonian national team got off to a poor start in the current World Cup 2022 qualifying tournament. Their first game was a 2-6 defeat for the Czech Republic, followed by defeats to Belarus and Belgium 2-4 and 2-5, respectively. The Estonians’ defence is a real curse. Still, it is interesting to watch them play football, scoring two goals against each opponent, including FIFA’s all-time leading national team, and allowing their opponents to score. Moreover, the Estonians have even clung to a point in the last two rounds after drawing 0-0 with Wales and then beating Belarus 2-0 to move into last but one spot in the Group E standings.
The Welsh national team is gradually getting closer to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup tie. In the group where Belgium play, it’s impossible to count on first place, so we can only count on the second line in the standings. That’s exactly what the Dragons are doing now. On Matchday 1, they were beaten 1-3 by Belgium, but then claimed two straight wins against the Czech Republic and Belarus 1-0 and 3-2, respectively. The Welsh have since drawn twice in a row with Estonia and the Czech Republic 0-0 and 2-2, so they are currently sitting in third place in Group E, but are ahead of the Czech Republic on points lost and can seriously look forward to the playoff phase for the World Cup.
Expert Betting Tips
The Estonian national team has had an incredibly merry start to the current qualifying tournament, scoring two goals against the Czech Republic, Belarus, and Belgium while conceding 15 goals in those three games, that is, an average of five per game. Estonia’s scoring rate dropped slightly in their two previous encounters, but they are now in last place in the qualifying tournament and can still afford to make some serious noise. That is the chance for the Dragons, so we need to place a bet on Individual Total 2 Over 1.5 goals for 2.03.
The Welsh national team is a surprising team that has made frequent visits to major international tournaments, yet they show modest-quality football. Even in this year’s World Cup 2022 qualifier, they narrowly missed out on a defeat against Belarus. However, they snatched the win in the closing stages thanks to a hat-trick by Gareth Bale before drawing 0-0 at home to Estonia. Nevertheless, the Welsh find the opportunity to step up and get the result they need at the right time. That’s why Wales’ victory with a handicap (-1.5) at odds close to 2.76 seems to be the best option.
Aaron Ramsey has spent most of his career at Arsenal, but then he gave up on the London club and his ambitions by moving to Juventus in Italy, where he no longer has a leadership role but some trophies to his name. He has only played three games this season without scoring a goal, but he scored in his first game for Wales at the 2022 World Cup qualifier against the Czech Republic the previous day. The 30-year-old midfielder blossoms in the national team shirt, so it is worth looking at a bet on Aaron Ramsey’s goal with odds of about 3.60.
