Wales v Turkey: Group D - UEFA EURO 2024 European Qualifiers
Wales will face Gibraltar on Thursday

Gibraltar will face Wales at the Estadio Algarve on Thursday in a friendly clash between the two teams. Team 54 endured an abysmal European Championship qualifying campaign and are gearing up for the UEFA Nations League in September.

They were in action on Monday, facing Scotland in a friendly clash in Portugal which they lost 2-0 and were perhaps fortunate not to have lost by a significantly larger margin as they were repeatedly carved apart by their opponents.

Wales, meanwhile, narrowly missed out on a spot in Euro 2024 after losing on penalties to Poland in the playoff final and will be targeting a positive return to action this week. Following Thursday's game, the Dragons will head to Trnava where they will face Slovakia in yet another friendly outing before kicking off their Nations League campaign against Turkey in September.

Thursday's game will mark just the second meeting between the two teams.

The two sides faced off for the first-ever time in a friendly clash last October which Wales won 4-0 featuring goals from three different players including Bournemouth striker Kieffer Moore, who netted a brace.

Gibraltar vs Wales Prediction

Gibraltar are on a wretched 13-game losing streak and have failed to score any goals in that period. They sit 174 places behind their midweek opponents in the FIFA rankings and now have a mountain to climb on Thursday.

Wales' latest result ended a seven-game winless streak and they will be looking to bounce back here. The sheer gulf in class and quality between the two teams should see the Dragons come out on top here.

Prediction: Gibraltar 0-2 Wales
