Russia take on Wales to finish off Group B in a game where either side still has the possibility of qualifying. That being said, a win for Russia will be much important that a win for Wales so it will be interesting to see how that plays in the minds of players as we head into match day.

Wales has been led well by Gareth Bale who has been in fine form. The Real Madrid superstar has scored in both games and leading into this game he will look to net another winner. That being said, the likes of Ramsey and Ledley have also been in fine form. This side was so close to beating England only to end up losing and it will be important that they bounce back if they want to qualify. A point will probably be enough to get second place but knowing the Welsh mentality they will look to get all three points.

Russia on the other hand will know a win is the only way they can get out of the group. This side was ok against England but against Slovakia they were poor. The problem with Russia is that their midfield is just too weak at the moment. I think this will be exploited by the Welsh again this game and as a result I think they will lose this match as well.

As far as betting is concerned, we are actually getting a decent price on Wales to win this game. I think that is the best bet in the game. The goal line is also an acceptable bet it we take the over 2.5 goals. Both teams will look to win so attacking football will be played so I am expect a 3-1 or 3-2 win for Wales. 

Pick:
Wales
