WALES will be hoping this World Cup qualifier at home to Estonia is far more straightforward than their bonkers battle with Belarus in Kazan on Sunday.

Robert Page had talisman Gareth Bale to thank for sinking the Belarusians, with the Real Madrid star completing his hat-trick in stoppage time to seal an epic 3-2 victory.

It looks like the Welsh will be battling the Czech Rebublic for second place behind Belgium in Group E and they have the edge just now, having beaten the Czechs in Cardiff.

The Prague return in October looks like being pivotal but it's vital the Dragons avoid slipping up at home to the Estonians first.

Thomas Häberli's men have been whipping boys in the section so far, conceding 15 goals in three games, but they have also scored twice in each qualifier and have the firepower to hurt Wales if complacency creeps in.

So Page will be hammering home the fact his players need to be on top of their game to stay on track for Qatar 2022.

How the bookies view it

Estonia are rank outsiders at 22/1 with BetVictor while the best price for a Wales win is just 1/5 at SBK. The stalemate is massive too at 7/1 with Bet365.

Head to head

These sides have only faced off once before and it was far from a thriller. Wales came out on top 1-0 in a 2009 friendly thanks to a goal from Robert Earnshaw.

Players to watch

It's no surprise to see Welsh hero Bale (below) odds-on in the anytime scorer market and his best price is 8/11 at Bet365. That's not great value so I'm more drawn to the 2/1 on offer at SportNation for winger Daniel James to score.

Henri Anier is a name that's familiar to Scottish football fans after his spells with Motherwell, Dundee United and Inverness. The 30-year-old netted four times for Estonia last season and is 6/1 with William Hill to score in Cardiff.

Anything else catch the eye?

The stats point towards a thriller with the Estonians having scored twice against both Belgium and the Czechs while shipping 11 goals across those two games.

Wales conceded twice to Belarus at the weekend, busting the coupon of our man Mark after he tipped a win to nil for Page's side. So I reckon both teams to score looks overpriced here at 45/23 with SBK while over 3.5 goals stands a chance at 15/8 with BetVictor.

Estonia's Joonas Tamm has picked up four yellows from just eight games this season, including a booking in the defeat to Belgium. So the 3/1 on offer at Bet365 for Tamm to be carded in this clash looks well worth a punt.
