Wales will be hoping for a confidence booster ahead of their Nations League fixtures when they host USA on Thursday evening.
Wales have won seven of their last 11 matches dating back to September 2019 and bet365 make them 7/5 (2.40) favourites to extend that run.
This will be USA’s first match since February and they are priced at 21/10 (3.10) to emerge victorious at the Liberty Stadium on Thursday.
Only one of the visitors’ last 15 matches have finished in a draw and another stalemate can be backed at 21/10(3.10).
Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are unavailable for this friendly match although the on-loan Tottenham man should be back for the Nations League clashes.
Berhalter could hand international debuts to as many as 10 players, with Dortmund forward Giovanni Reyna and Bayern Munich defender Chris Richards amongthose pushing to feature. Christian Pulisic has, however, returned to Chelsea due to injury.
It is set to be a busy week for Wales with three games in eight days, and they will be hoping to get through this first fixtureunscathed ahead of their Nations League clashes that could see themearn promotion.
With not a lot riding on the meeting with the USMNT,an already low-scoring Wales side that has managed just three goals in five games since the start of September are unlikely to offer much attacking threat, especially without Bale and Ramsey.
Chelsea star Pulisic would no doubt have been USA’s main attacking threat but his absence only further points to a potentially abject affair in Swansea.
All three of Wales’ goals in their five games since September have come after the break and given that USA have not been together as a unit in nine months, it is likely that Berhalter’s men will also struggle in the opening 45 minutes.
