Belarus vs Wales team news
With no new injuries or suspensions to deal with, the hosts are likely to stick with the same line-up that ran the Czech Republic so close last time out.
Adam Davies, Joe Rodon, Neco Williams, Aaron Ramsey, David Brooks, George Thomas and Kieffer Moore have all been forced to withdraw from the squad due to injury, while Harry Wilson is suspended following his red card in the Euro 2020 defeat against Denmark.
Belarus vs Wales preview
After suffering their heaviest ever defeat against Belgium, Belarus will have been pleased to put in a far more resolute performance in their narrow 1-0 defeat against the Czechs.
Fresh from that performance, they will back themselves to make life extremely difficult for a visiting team that are missing some key attacking players.
Having scored just three goals in their last five fixtures – failing to fire in any of the most recent three – Rob Page’s team do not arrive at the neutral Russian venue in particularly encouraging form in front of goal.
Belarus vs Wales predictions
Nevertheless, the quality of Gareth Bale and Daniel James should be enough to see the Welsh just about escape Kazan with a win, making odds of 2/1 (3.00) seem generous on them beating Belarus in a game featuring under 2.5 goals.
