Wales appeared at the last two EUROs. They failed to qualify from their group but will have a great opportunity through the promotion playoff. If Wales wins against Finland on Thursday, they will host Poland or Estonia in the final tie. Wales played brilliantly in the last few months of 2023, as they are without a loss in the last six matches. In the previous game, they played 1-1 at home against Turkey. 

In the Finnish EURO qualifications group, Denmark and Slovenia finished with four points more than Finland, but due to the good Nations League performance, Markku Kanerva's team got a second chance in the playoff. Finland didn't finish well in 2023, as they underperformed in almost every of the last five matches. In the last game, they won 2-1 on the road against San Marino. Of course, Kanerva's team won that one, but Finnish fans certainly expected a win with a much bigger margin versus one of the weakest teams in the world. 

Wales vs Finland pick: Wales to win

Wales and Finland have met three times since 2020. In two of those three games, Wales won, while in the previous match (friendly), it was 0-0 in Helsinki. Wales seems too good for Finland at this moment, so we should expect their win in the upcoming tie.

Wales team news

The most surprising in the Welsh squad was that Robert Page included Aaron Ramsey. Ex-Arsenal and Juventus star appeared in only nine Championship games for Cardiff this season. He had two big injuries this season, so he played in only three matches in the last few months. Still, it is hard to expect the head coach to start Ramsey after he played only 18 minutes last weekend in his first game after a calf injury.

Finland team news

Finland doesn't have a big star in its team. Even after a draw, head coach Markku Kanerva already said that Wales are the favorite to win, but, as always, he said that we should expect to see a fighting Finland in that game. 

The Finnish best player is probably Glen Kamara. The midfielder, who appeared in 30 league matches for Leeds this season, will play his 59th game for Finland against Wales. Besides Kamara, we should also mention captain Lukas Hradecky and forward Joel Pohjanpalo.
