World Cup Match Prediction: USA vs Wales

Concluding Day one of this World Cup is the game USA vs Wales, who qualified after their play-off final victory over Ukraine.

โœ”1X2 Prediction USA vs Wales

This game promises to be open and undecided between two teams of similar levels. We expect the Americans to win by two goals.

โœ”Correct Score Prediction USA vs Wales

For this big fixture of the 2022 World Cup, the United States seem to be the favourites on paper but watch out for the Welsh who will have nothing to lose in this World Cup. Our prediction for the correct score would be a two-goal win for the Americans to kick off their campaign in the best possible way.


This is the most likely outcome. The Americans have much more experience in World Cups than their opponent, and that could be important in this game. Scores of 2-0 or 2-1 are likely.


This is a possible scenario. The two teams seem equal and it is quite possible that neither of them will manage to defeat the other. In such a case, a draw with goals could be the outcome, 1-1 or 2-2.

Wales Win

The Welsh want to have a good time. The Dragons, who will be at the World Cup for the first time since 1958, will have nothing to lose in a group which also features a rival, England. They will not be favourites in this group but will give everything to win against the USA, with a possible score of 0-1 or 1-2.

โœ”Half-Time/Full-Time Prediction: Draw 1st Half : USA 2nd Half

We expect the game between these two nations to be balanced. They could therefore be neutralised at half-time before the Americans manage to take the lead and extend their lead in the second half.

โœ”Goalscorer Prediction USA vs Wales

This game will feature some great players. This fixture could be the opportunity for Christian Pulisic and his teammate Timothy Weah to shine. On the Welsh side, Gareth Bale will obviously be the one to watch out for.

โœ”Double Chance Goalscorer Prediction: C. Pulisic / G. Bale

This game could be a chance for stars to display their talents. As suggested above, this could be the opportunity to see Christian Pulisic and Gareth Bale score. So we offer you this double chance goalscorer prediction.

USA vs Wales Analysis

Pre-betting Analysis

The USA qualify on the edge. Finishing third in the qualifying group (third round), the USA finished behind Canada and Mexico and tied on points with Costa Rica. It is thanks to the goal difference that the USA qualified for the World Cup.

Wales in two stages. The Welsh came second in their qualifying group behind Belgium but ahead of the Czech Republic, Estonia and Belarus, then beat Austria (2-1) in the play-off semi-finals and had to wait until June to secure their place in Qatar after defeating Ukraine (1-0) in the final.

A first World Cup confrontation. The two teams have never met in a World Cup. The last time the Welsh were involved in such an event, Pele was the star of the 1958 World Cup.

Present Form

The Americans are solid. With three losses in their last sixteen games, the USA are going into the World Cup with a lot of confidence. The American players have dominated Mexico as well as Morocco in recent friendlies.

The Dragons are hard to beat. With only one loss in their last eleven games (to Poland in the Nations League), Wales is confident and has been proving it lately.
