Wales will overcome several disappointing results in their past fixtures as they travel to take on Wales in the UEFA Nations League. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 9:45 pm.
After a 3-0 disappointing friendly loss to England, the Dragons followed with a goalless draw against the Republic of Ireland. Despite the misfortunes, the side still is in control of Group B4.
Ryan Giggs might not have the worst result following their stalemate at Dublin. The Dragons managed to keep top spot in their group rankings midway through their campaign. However, the Dragons must be weary of Finland closing in with only one point adrift.
One standout feature for the Welsh side is the lack of attacking threat in their last four matches. It took late goals in their opening fixtures of the UEFA Nations League to record a win over Bulgaria and Finland. The side failed to push through with the same luck over England and the Republic of Ireland.
However, something that Giggs can cherish is their results over the past 18 months. The away side managed to lose only one match in their past ten matches. The defeat came on their friendly against England.
Bulgaria enters the match from back to back defeats without scoring. The side recorded a 1-0 loss to Wales back in Cardiff and a 2-0 defeat to Finland in their last outing.

Bulgaria Team News
Following their defeat to Hungary, the home side has made eight changes to their Euro 2020 qualifying playoff. We expect a rotated squad especially following their 2-0 loss to Finland. New candidates for the starting XI include Kraev and Velkovski.
Wales Team News
Kieffer Moore was fit to take on the Republic of Ireland despite a toe injury. However, he picked up a yellow card in the game and remained suspended in this match. Chris Mepham remains ruled out from this match. It could see Etham Ampadu drop into the defensive line.
