Wales vs Serbia: Prediction
This is a big affair for the two teams, as there no favourites in the fixture. Aaron Ramsey’s return will be a great boost to Wales midfield as he was missed a lot in their last game. Furthermore, Gareth Bale is expected to shoulder a lot of responsibilities in the wales team, powering them to a win. We expect Wales to win this one and go above Serbia in the group.
