Daily Tips – Wales can end Russian hopes


Gareth Bale - WalesWales take on Russia later in a wide open Group B knowing a draw would probably be enough to see them reach the last 16.

Russia have been outplayed by both England and Slovakia already and the Dragons can inflict more woe on Leonid Slutsky’s men.

The Russians must win to stand any hope of qualifying for the next round and the more they push forward the more space Wales will have to exploit.

Russia will at least want to make a statement and a desire to attack and grab an early lead themselves could be their undoing, as the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Hal Robson-Kanu and Jonny Williams have the pace and quality to hit them on the break.

We haven’t really seen the best of Real Madrid man Bale in France yet but still he has managed two goals, with both coming from free kicks, and he is 33/20 to score at any time.

Wales are 19/10 to win the match in the standard match betting market but the 29/10 on offer for Chris Coleman’s men to be ahead at half-time is my top tip for this encounter.

The Welsh have been ahead at the break in both of their Euro 2016 games to date and they can make a fast start again today. They have the pace and ingenuity to cause problems from the off against a Russian side who found themselves 2-0 down at half-time in their last clash with Slovakia.
