Our prediction for this match:
Wales take on Belarus at Cardiff City Stadium in an international friendly on Monday evening. The Dragons are fully focused on booking their place at the 2020 European Championship, meaning that coach Ryan Giggs could use this friendly to test as many players as possible. Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is likely to be rested against Belarus, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, we believe that home win should be considered.
The Dragons have turned Cardiff City Stadium into a real fortress and given Belarus’ poor performances in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, we are positive that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Cardiff City. In their last meeting in a competitive match Wales recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Belarus (2001), with John Hartson scoring the winner.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Ramsey):
Aaron Ramsey is a Welsh football player born on the 26th of December in Caerphilly. Ramsey started his football career playing for Cardiff City. After 2 seasons playing for Cardiff City Ramsey got transferred to Arsenal for a unknown transfer fee. After playing for a loan for Nottingham Forrest and Cardiff City Ramsey returned to Arsenal in 2011.
Aaron Ramsey made his debut for the Welsh national team in 2008 and is one of the youngest players in the history of Welsh football. Ramsey is currently one of the most talentful midfielders of his generation. Because of his dribbling skills, vision and great passes and being two-footed Ramsey is known for being a player that dominates the midfield.
Despite several injuries in his still young career Ramsey managed to win the FA cup and the Community Shield twice with Arsenal. Ramsey is called Rambo by his fans. Ramsey and Gareth Bale are the biggest strength of the Welsh national team which will play in the EURO 2016 for the first time in history.
Highlighted Team (Belarus):
Belarus national football team have been competing on the international stage since 1992. The Belarusians played their first match against Lithuania on July 20, 1992, but the game was not FIFA-recognized. The White Wings faced Ukraine in their first official match, with the team sharing the spoils with the fellow former Soviet republic.
Belarus have yet to qualify for a major tournament and they have slim chances of booking their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Belarusians recorded their biggest win on September 4, 2014, with the team rolling over Tajikistan 6-1 in Borisov and speaking of their biggest loss, they were hammered by Austria (0-5) on June 11, 2003.
