World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
Moving on to the next group of the World Cup qualifiers, we see something very interesting. Group D has two games in which the first four teams (separated by only 3 points) play against each other.
The first game we will analyze from this day is the one between Wales and Serbia. Sounds very close on paper, but let’s see what more can we learn about the teams.

After a semi-final appearance in Euro 2016, most people would expect the Welsh to do a little better. They are undefeated in the group, but only won one game – 4-0 against minnows Moldova.
They went on to draw Austria away from home, which can be considered a good result, but only managed another draw at home against Georgia, 1-1, in a game which they really should have won.
All in all, the team seems to rely on a couple of star players like Bale or Allen too much. If they can’t win a game, the rest of the team isn’t likely to rise to the challenge.
Meanwhile, Serbia is the surprising leader of the group, with 7 points from their first three games.
After missing out on Euro 2016, nobody expected the Serbians to top the group after three games but wins against Austria (3-2) and Moldova (2-2) coupled with a draw against Ireland put them comfortably in first place.
Avoiding defeat against Wales could extend their unbeaten run even further, and coupled with a win against Georgia, can put them in a prime spot for qualifying.
Wales vs Serbia Betting Tips
That being said, we’re looking at a very close game, in which we expect both teams to score. Over 2,5 goals is another great bet, while Serbia +1 is also a good idea – since we don’t expect them to lose at all.
They should profit from the lack of form Wales is currently facing and at least avoid defeat, if not actually win the game. The only certainty we see here are goals.
Total Goals: Over 2.5 @ 2.15 or 23/20
Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.45 or 29/20
