Wales vs Trinidad & Tobago Match Preview
Wales take on Trinidad and Tobago in a friendly fixture on Wednesday evening and they’ll be looking for three points after a difficult first few games under Ryan Giggs. Although the Dragons did manage to beat a Republic of Ireland side that would eventually sack manager Martin O’Neill both home and away in the UEFA Nations League, they were unable to stop Denmark from winning the group, losing both their matches versus Rode-Hvide.
There have been two highly disappointing performances and results in friendly fixtures under the former Manchester United winger too, with a rejuvenated Spain outfit winning 1-4 in Wales in October whilst lowly Albania also managed to beat the British side in November in a friendly clash. Ahead of a tricky qualifying campaign coming up in the coming weeks can Wales pick up a morale-boosting victory in this fixture at odds of 2/9 with Ladbrokes.
Trinidad & Tobago have not managed to build on their success around the turn of the century. The tiny Caribbean nation don’t have a vast pool of talent to choose from and that has shown in recent years as they’ve failed to qualify for the World Cup since their only solitary appearance back in 2006 and they’ve even struggled in regional competitions, failing to add to their eight CFU Carribbean Cup wins since 2001, falling short in the last six tournaments.
Although they have picked up a couple of wins in their last eight games, they were against minnows UAE and Guadelope and when they’ve faced stronger opposition, the Soca Warriors have struggled to compete. Panama, Thailand and Iran are among the teams that have emerged successful with recent tussles with Dennis Lawrence’s side and Wales are expected to do the same, hence why the away win is available at 14/1 with William Hill.
We’re backing the hosts for a win in this game. They may not have been at their best recently, but this Wales side has built a reputation as a difficult team to break down in recent years and they should have too much quality for a Trinidad & Tobago side that includes a handful of domestic-based semi-professional players. The Soca Warriors have failed to score in four of their last five games, so we’re backing the home win to nil at 4/6 with William Hill.
Wales aren’t the most prolific attacking side so it’s likely to be a low-scoring game, meaning there’s more value in the first goalscorer markets than the anytime markets and there’s only one man we’re backing to open the scoring at the Racecourse Ground. Gareth Bale has racked up 31 goals so far for his country, including five in his last six caps, so we’re backing him top open the scoring with another here at odds of 2/1 with bet365.
