Wales vs Estonia: Dragons can maintain momentum

Kick-off: 1945, 08/09/2021

Stadium: Cardiff City Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Wales will be looking to make it three straight wins in World Cup qualifying Group E when entertaining basement dwellers Estonia in Cardiff.

The visitors have conceded 15 times in a trio of defeats so far, although they have done surprisingly well going forward, netting six goals themselves.

We reckon 11/4 for a home win and both teams to score could prove value for our first Wales vs Estonia prediction.

A Look At Wales’ Betting Odds

Wales were far from disgraced when beaten 3-1 away to Belgium in their pool opener and rallied well to edge out Czech Republic 1-0 at this venue.

The Dragons emerged from Euro 2020 with some credit, advancing from a tricky section before being hammered by Denmark.

Back in World Cup action, talismanic forward Gareth Bale kept his side on course to challenge for a top-two finish with a hat-trick in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Belarus.

After going nearly two years without an international goal, Bale converted twice from the penalty spot before squeezing home a winner in the third minute of stoppage time.

“To get that kind of last-minute goal, to get the three points, keeps the momentum going,” said the Real Madrid ace.

“Hopefully, we can keep that going into the next game. It’s massive because every game counts.”

Wales were without 13 players for the long trip to Kazan in Russia through a variety of issues, but interim coach Robert Page added: “What pleases me is the resilience we showed.”

With Bale back on song, 7/4 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game takes the eye from the Wales vs Estonia odds.

A Look At Estonia’s Betting Odds

Estonia are as low as 110 in the FIFA rankings but did beat Lithuania and Latvia in Baltic Cup matches over the summer.

In this competition, they have been predictably overwhelmed, although not without enjoying some positive moments of their own.

Swiss coach Thomas Haberli came in at the start of the year and the former Young Boys striker has encouraged his side to get forward.

The Blueshirts have been beaten 6-2 by Czech Republic, 4-2 by Belarus and 5-2 by Belgium, so nobody can accuse them of being boring.

Former Motherwell, Dundee United and Inverness forward Henri Anier is still banging in the goals at the age of 30.

We’re hoping the visitors come to play again in Cardiff and 11/1 for a 3-1 home win is added to our Wales vs Estonia betting tips.
