Group B4 of the Nations League continues on Wednesday night with Bulgaria hosting Wales.

A last-gasp header from young Liverpool full-back Neco Williams secured a 1-0 win for the Dragons in the reverse fixture last month. Ryan Giggs' side currently top the group on seven points after three games and can take a huge step towards promotion to the top tier should they win here.

Wales will be without their star players Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey through injury, though, as well as striker Kieffer Moore through suspension, which obviously makes life much tougher.

However, given that Wales have kept a clean sheet in their last five competitive matches and Bulgaria have scored just four goals in their last 11 matches, they'll still fancy their chances.

 Indeed, Bulgaria recorded only two shots on-target in their 2-0 defeat at Finland on Sunday. Nine of Wales' last 11 competitive matches, meanwhile, have seen under three goals scored at either end.

Given Bulgaria's lack of offensive quality and Wales' absences in attacking areas, then, I fancy a low-scoring showdown to land again here.

Elsewhere, Wales have collected 20+ Booking Points in 10 of their last 11 competitive matches, as well as in the 3-0 friendly defeat to England last week, so I feel safe in backing them to pick up a yellow card too.

And even with their notable absences, I'm still struggling to see them losing to a Bulgaria side who have won just one of their last 18 matches.

Wales Double Chance, Under 3 Goals, and Over 0 Cards for Wales is evens on Bet365's Bet Builder feature, which looks a good price. 

This bet covers 0-0, 0-1, 0-2 and 1-1, providing Wales do pick up at least one card of course.

About Author

I've been a football fanatic ever since my five-year-old self saw Michael Owen score *that* goal against Argentina. My dad's a Liverpool fan so I never looked back from there. As an avid watcher, player, and writer of the game, I suppose betting on it was always an inevitability at some point. It started off with a weekly accumulator and the odd punt on national tournaments, but with the rise of player markets and custom bet builders in recent years I feel there's more fun, control and value to be had these days, which is what it's all about, really. I'll always ensure I research the stats and probabilities behind my tips (where possible) so that my experienced eyes aren't playing tricks on me!
