Seeley’s Selections: Wales v Bosnia-Herzegovina
Wales v Bosnia-Herzegovina
Wales, or as I prefer to call them, Gareth Bale, host Bosnia and Herzegovina on Friday night as they look to make it two wins out of two in Euro 2016 qualification.
The Welsh are 9/4 to win this Group B clash with Boylesports which may sound like a bit of value but I don’t think I’ll be rushing to back them.
Wales coach Chris Coleman’s has a host of players missing for this game, including Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen and although they got the three points against group minnows Andorra, they were anything but impressive.
Bosnia are 5/4 favourites with Boylesports to win the match and again I couldn’t get involved in them either as they are far too inconsistent for my liking. They were very impressive during their World Cup qualifying campaign but didn’t quite live up to expectations during the tournament failing to progress to the knock-out stages.
Safet Susic’s side have started their Euro qualification poorly losing to the mighty Cyprus in their Group opener and I believe both managers would take a point if offered to them now.
Bosnia do boast a top international striker in Edin Dzeko and the Manchester City ace is a 4/1 chance to net the first goal with Boylesports, but it’s impossible not to get involved in the 7/2 on Gareth Bale. The Welsh talisman saved his nation’s blushes yet again with a brace against the Andorrans and at 13/10 to score anytime that looks mustard for Coleman’s side.
Remember that Boylesports will give you your CASH BACK if your first goalscorer scores the second goal and with goals expected in the game, that’s a very generous offer. That brings me on nicely to my final bet where I’m very keen on both teams to score in Cardiff.
Wales have only kept two clean sheets in their last 20 matches and I don’t fancy the Bosnian’s to be able to stop Bale. Both teams to bag is my bet of the game at 5/6 and the last time these two nations met in Wales, it ended in a 2-2 draw and at 13/1 with Boylesports I’m having a couple of quid on that again.
Gareth Bale First Goalscorer @ 7/2
Both teams to score @ 5/6
