Price Boost: Gareth could Bale out injury hit Wales with first goal

| 10.10.2014

As injuries continue to hit his squad Chris Coleman is likely to turn to one man to lead the way for his Wales side as they look to cause an upset against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Young midfielder Emyr Huws was the latest name added to a list that include Aaron Ramsey, Joe Allen and James Collins who will miss out in Cardiff, putting the pressure on Gareth Bale even more as the stand out performer for the Red Dragons.

And with the Real Madrid man showing fine scoring form for his national side, we have boosted Bale to score first from 9/2 to a whopping 11/2!

The former Spurs wide-man hauled Wales out of a potentially embarrassing situation last month when bagging two goals to rescue a 2-1 victory in a trip to Andorra.

That brace added to Bale’s impressive record in competitive fixtures for the side ranked 29th in the world, having now bagged nine of their last 17 goals in European Championship and World Cup qualifiers.

Backers of the 25-year-old will be encouraged by the start to the season he has made in Spain.

Although the Galactico hasn’t found the net in his last two La Liga matches, he has already got five Real Madrid goals to his name this campaign.

He is likely to be pushed into an even more attacking position at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Simon Church the only other recognised striker in the Wales squad.

The hosts can be backed at 23/10 to see off Bosnia-Herzegovina who had a frustrating World Cup, while the draw is 11/5 and the visitors are available at 5/4.

But for those with even more faith in Chris Coleman’s side there may be worse shouts than Gareth Bale to score in a Welsh victory, priced with Ladbrokes at 31/10.
