Albania vs Wales
Date: Tuesday, 20 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK
Venue: Elbasan Arena (Elbasan).
Albania and Wales are going to face each other on Tuesday evening in an international friendly match.
Home side cannot be proud of their campaign in the UEFA Nations League Division C as they managed to snatch just one victory in three rounds. They are in a danger of going down to the lowest division as they’ve lost two times in a row in their group. Christian Panucci’s side managed to score just once in the campaign, while in the last three matches they failed to find the back of the net. Albania booked just one victory in the last seven occasions and they need to improve their game.
Wales are also in pretty variable form as they celebrated two times and suffered three defeats in the last five matches. They missed the chance to secure the spot in the top flight of the Nations League after losing to Denmark in front of the home crowd. Gareth Bale and the lads are the most productive side in their group, but their poor defending costed them the chance to finish the campaign on the top spot. .
Albania vs Wales: Head-to-head
These two sides had the chance to face each other twice and Wales still haven’t lost to their rivals. Those matches took place in the 1994/95 season in the European Championship qualifiers and Wales booked a 2-0 home victory. The match played in Albania ended with a 1-1 draw, so both encounters remained under 2.5 margin.
Albania vs Wales: Prediction
The hosts are not looking confident at all and although they are playing at home ground, it is questionable if they are capable of securing a positive result. We believe Wales are in better momentum and the visitors are going to get back home with a win.
Albania have been involved in low scoring matches lately and although they are not conceding too many goals, their finishing is pretty poor. Most of the action is going to take place in the middle of the park and we are expecting another tight clash with two goals in total at most.
Albania vs Wales: Bet Tips
Away win @ 2.30 (13/10)
Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.60 (3/5).
