Moldova v Wales Betting: Coleman's side to find their shooting boots against lowly hosts

Having regularly been frustrated in front of goal so far this campaign, Al Hain-Cole expects the Dragons attack to click into gear in Chisinau

Having closed the gap on second-placed Ireland by beating Austria at the weekend, Wales will be looking to give their World Cup qualification chances another boost when they travel to Moldova on Tuesday.

A debut goal for 17-year-old Ben Woodburn saw the Dragons come out on top in Cardiff, and they are available at 1/3 (1.33) with Genting to build on that with another three points at the Stadionul Zimbru.

Without a win in 17 competitive fixtures, Igor Dobrovolski's team are priced at 10/1 (11.00) to end that run with a shock victory in Chisinau.

Five of the guests' seven Group D matches so far have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on them being held to another frustrating stalemate in this one.

Having started their qualification campaign with a comfortable 4-0 home victory over this opposition, Chris Coleman's men would not have expected to wait until their seventh group game to secure another win.

This failure to collect maximum points has largely been due to a lack of cutting edge and inability to build on narrow leads, having gone ahead in four of their five subsequent matches before conceding equalisers.

With just six goals to their name in the last six qualification games, the visitors will certainly be looking forward to once again taking on the team they put four past last September - their biggest margin of victory since 2010.

Indeed, Gareth Bale and Co. should fancy their chances of significantly boosting their goal difference in Chisinau, where the Selectionata have conceded eight in their three group games so far.

Considering their only clean sheets in the last 24 competitive fixtures have been recorded against lowly San Marino, evens money (2.00) seems generous on a leaky Moldovan defence ensuring over 2.5 goals are scored for their fourth consecutive qualifier on home turf.
