Serbia vs Wales Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Serbia vs Wales betting tips and predictions ahead of this World Cup qualifier, kicking off at 7.45pm on Sunday, 11th June 2017. Read on for our tipsters’ best bets ahead of this game.


Wales may have enjoyed a brilliant run at Euro 2016 last year, but they are in danger of missing out on a place at the World Cup. Despite being top seeds for this campaign, they’re finding things tough and desperately need a result against Serbia.


Serbia vs Wales Predictions


With four sides in this group battling for a top two finish, every clash between them is key in the qualifying campaign. Wales travel to Serbia knowing a loss would effectively end their hopes of qualifying automatically, and it could also be a fatal blow to their play-off hopes. That’s worry when you consider that Serbia have struck five goals in two home games so far, but they’ve kept just two clean sheets in their last 10 matches. The Serbians have shipped two goals in their previous three home competitive games, so our first Serbia vs Wales betting tip is both teams to score at 6/5 with BetFred.


Wales have now drawn their last four games since hammering Moldova 4-0 in their opener. Serbia have drawn with both Wales and the Republic of Ireland, and they’ve been tough opposition for any side they’ve faced in the group. They’ll be facing a Wales side who are without the cutting edge of Gareth Bale, but Chris Coleman has made them organised enough to secure a draw here. Our second Serbia vs Wales prediction is for these two sides to share the points, with a draw priced at 13/5 with Ladbrokes.


Team News


Gareth Bale hasn’t been called up to the squad as he continues his recovery from an injury suffered with Real Madrid during the season. Neil Taylor is suspended following his red card against the Republic of Ireland. Serbia have no injury worries here.


Head to Head Stats


Wales lost 6-1 in their previous trip here, back in 2012. Things have changed quite a bit for them since, while they ended a four game losing streak against Serbia with a 1-1 draw in November.


Serbia vs Wales Betting Odds


Without Bale, Wales are going to need their scoring threat to come from elsewhere. While they don’t have too many options up front, they do have goals from midfield. Joe Allen is their second highest scorer having struck twice in qualifying, and he should have a more attacking role with Bale missing. We think Allen is terrific value to score at 7/1 with Bet365, so that’s our final Serbia vs Wales prediction.

Both teams to score – 6/5 with BetFred

Draw – 13/5 with Ladbrokes
