Austria – 17/10


Prediction: Wales 2 – 0 Austria

Gareth Bale of Wales celebrates his team's 3-1 win after the UEFA EURO 2016 quarterfinal.

Despite Austria being a decent side, they have never beaten Wales before. Combine this with the fact that Wales are unbeaten in seven games, have no injury worries and have the full support of the Cardiff City Stadium behind them – we think they’ll come out on top.
