Wales vs Finland Euro 2024 play-off Predictions: Tips and Odds

Wales and Finland meet in a Euro 2024 play-off semi-finals on Thursday at 7:45 pm (UK time).

The winner of this single-leg tie will face either Poland or Estonia five days later to play for a place at this summer’s tournament in Germany.

Wales are seeking to secure a third successive appearance at the European Championships and reach a fourth major tournament out of the last five after last year, ending their 64-year wait to play at the World Cup. They finished third in Group D of qualifying, behind pool winners Turkey and second-placed Croatia.

After winning six of their ten fixtures, Finland finished third in Northern Ireland’s qualifying group – four points behind Denmark and Slovenia. They sit 60th in the Fifa rankings, 31 places below Wales, and are aiming to qualify for the European Championship for only the second time following their debut at Euro 2020.
