We have prepared for you a prediction for the match Wales – England in group “B” at the World Cup 2022 in Qatar. England drew with the USA (0:0) and defeated Iran (6:2). The Wales national team played a draw with the USA (1:1) and lost to Iran (0:2).
England team – still may not qualify from the group
England is in first place in the UEFA rankings and in 5th place in the FIFA rankings. In group “B” the British have a victory over Iran (6:2) and a draw with the USA (1:1). After the match with Iran, there were more expectations from England, but in the game with the USA, they did not succeed in anything and a completely natural goalless draw. Remembering that game, 55% to 45% possession in favor of England. xG England had 0.5 and Wales had 0.6. The Americans looked very cool and could even beat the British.
Now the situation for the British is ambiguous, even with four points they may not leave the group. Some statistics on the England team: an average of 1.5 goals per match, scored in 5 of the last 10 matches, conceded in 7 of 10. If we take the World Cup in Qatar, then the top scorer in England is Bukayo Saka, and the best assistant is Harry Kane.
It seems to me that Gareth Southgate should forget a little about the victory over Iran and believe a little more in Rashford, Foden and Grealish. A little earlier to release them, as they can really make a difference.
Wales national team – it is worth moving away from such a defeat with Iran
In the game Wales – Iran, there were thoughts that the Iranians would lose without a chance, since they would not be able to return after the defeat from England (2:6). Everything fell apart already in the first half, when I saw the game of Wales in attack. The team plays very poorly and hardly even deserves to leave the group. This fully explains their results in the last 10 matches. Wales have a 0.9 goals per match average, having last won in June when they defeated Ukraine. Although even in that match, they could easily lose.
Since June 5, Wales have not won, out of 7 games, only two draws, and everything else is defeat. Wales’ top scorer is Gareth Bale, followed by Aaron Ramsey. In the ranking of assistants, Bale is also in the top, in second place is Harry Wilson.
Wales v England: Qatar 2022 World Cup match betting
England is more about technique, but Wales is about power struggle. I think that the British are many times stronger than the Welsh in almost all respects. For both teams, the fate of a place in the playoffs will be decided, and this is also a fundamental match between these two teams.
Wales last defeated England in 1984, since 2004 the British have always celebrated victory. Only in one of the six matches, already a new era, Wales managed to score, but even there they lost 1-2. I expect an easy victory for England against Wales, I would even believe in a difference of two goals.
Of the interesting markets for the match Wales – England, I would note the following outcomes:
- England win at 1.42 (most likely outcome)
- England individual total over 2 for 2.04
- Both teams to score – no for 1.77/Wales not to score for 1.98
Prediction: Wales won’t score against England
