More Belgrade misery for Coleman


Just 12 months ago, Wales were embarking on an unlikely run to the semi-finals at Euro 2016, but they now find themselves struggling to qualify for next summer’s World Cup finals in Russia.

Chris Coleman’s team have drawn their last four qualifiers and would be happy to escape with a point from Sunday’s game in Belgrade against Serbia, with the draw available at 51/20.

Serbia currently top Group D although they’ve only managed to keep two clean sheets in their last 10 matches, conceding twice in each of their last three competitive games at home.

Goals could be plentiful this weekend although Wales will be hoping they are distributed more evenly than when they were humbled 6-1 in a qualifier for the 2014 World Cup by Serbia in September 2012.

The odds on Over 3.5 Goals in the match can be backed at 33/10 while a 2-1 victory for Serbia is available at 31/4.

Wales came close to beating Serbia on home soil earlier in the qualifying campaign before they had to settle for a 1-1 draw after an 85th-minute equaliser by Aleksandar Mitrovic. The Newcastle United striker is 17/4 to score the first goal on Sunday.

Aston Villa defender Neil Taylor is missing for Wales as he is serving the first of a two-game suspension for his sending off in the 0-0 draw with Ireland in March, the challenge that broke Seamus Coleman’s leg.

Coleman is also without the suspended Gareth Bale and injury victims James Collins and Andy King, but he can call on the services of Aaron Ramsey, who was so impressive in France last summer.

The Arsenal star, who scored the winner in last month’s FA Cup final triumph against Chelsea, can be backed at 9/2 to score anytime against Serbia while Southampton’s Dusan Tadic is available at 47/20 in the same market.
