Wales – Netherlands best football tips for today
Just few days after qualifying for the World Cup, Wales will host Netherlands in their second game from the Nations League 2022/23 campaign. Let us preview this clash in our best football tips for today.
The Welsh team will approach this game in the best possible mood – they just reached the World Cup for a first time in their history. The Dragons faced Ukraine in a decisive playoff in Cardiff and managed to secure a 1-0 win. Ukraine’s Andriy Yarmolenko scored himself an own goal in the first half and it was enough for Wales to secure the win.
The Welsh manager Rob Page could make some changes in the line-up after the historic triumph last weekend. They will have to check Gareth Bale’s fitness before deciding if he can start again on Wednesday. He’s crucial for Wales, but he’s also not on his top levels right now. Fulham’s Harry Wilson should be ready to replace him in the starting eleven if needed.
The Netherlands made headlines with their performance in the first round of the Nations League. Louis van Gaal’s boys totally crushed Belgium away from home as they scored four times for a 4-1 win in Brussels. It was a great illustration of Netherlands’ strength against one of the best teams in Europe.
Barcelona’s Memphis Depay proved once again that he’s one of the main players in the Dutch team. The forward scored twice against Belgium and improved his tally to 41 goals on international level. Most likely he will soon become Netherland’s all time top scorer as he’s just 9 goals behind Robin van Persie at the moment. He’s going to be one of the main threats for the Welsh defense on Wednesday.
That’s the best football tips for today for the Nations League game between Wales and Netherlands. The visitors are red hot favorites here after their display against Belgium. Let’s see.
