Wales face their second Nations League game on Sunday as they take on Bulgaria.

A win over Finland during the open round of fixtures means Ryan Giggs’ side lead League B Group 4.

Meanwhile, Bulgaria had two points snatched away from them late on against Ireland.

A 93rd-minute header from Shane Duffy meant Bulgaria had to settle for a point in their opening fixture.

Wales vs Bulgaria: Recommended bets

Bulgaria showed impressive fight against Ireland and were unfortunate not to take all three points.

Meanwhile, Wales were lacklustre, despite their win over Finland, showing they are a side who could be got at.

On Sunday, Bulgaria face a tough task in Wales but are good value for the win at 13/2.

Wales vs Bulgaria: Match preview

Wales successfully started their Nations League campaign with a win over Finland.

Kieffer Moore’s late goal proved to be decisive as Giggs’ side moved top of League B Group 4.

The Dragons produced a below-par display in Helsinki but were still able to come away with three points.

After playing such little football at Real Madrid since the restart, Gareth Bale was underwhelming for Wales on the night and was forced off at half-time in the win.

Fortunately, it proved to be just for precautionary measures, but Wales will be hoping for more from their star man.

Giggs could make changes to his side on Sunday with Harry Wilson and David Brooks both ready to potentially start the match.

Bulgaria’s late heartache

Bulgaria had a big three points snatched away from them in the dying embers of their clash with Ireland.

A Shane Duffey header in the final minutes of stoppage time denied them the victory.

Lyuboslav Penev’s team produced a big performance in Sofia and will take confidence heading into Sunday.

Next month, Bulgaria take on Hungary in the play-offs for a place at Euro 2020.

Wales team news vs Bulgaria

Gareth Bale was withdrawn at half-time against Finland with Wales fans fearing a possible injury.

However, Giggs has since revealed his substitution was simply precautionary.

The 31-year-old is therefore in line to start again on Sunday. Bale should play the majority of the match on Sunday.

Also, Bournemouth’s David Brooks is available for selection after returning from an ankle injury which saw him miss the win over Finland.
