Football Betting Preview: Austria vs WalesPublished October 6, 2016
The subjects of Euro 2016’s Freaky Friday style switcheroo clash in World Cup Qualifying tonight. Before the tournament in France, Austria were tipped as dark horses and Wales potential whipping boys but they swapped places in a flurry of fast and furious games. The jibes before this bout have been fired at an equally wicked pace by the home side.
Austria manager Marcel Koller said that Chris Coleman’s team were ‘lucky’ to reach the semi-finals. He hit back by saying lot of big teams ‘couldn’t handle the pressure’. He has a point. Not that it made their task any easier. Wales were still required to exploit that fragility. They did that with aplomb. Now they can claim another scalp
Aaron Ramsey is a big miss for Wales but he’s the only star name missing from their side for this clash. Austria have a full team. We think Wales should hold their own here.
