wales-v-fiji-rugby-predictionwales-v-fiji-rugby-prediction

The last match of the opening games of the 2023 Rugby World Cup will see Wales v Fiji on Sunday, the 10th of September, kicking off at the Stade de Bordeaux at 8 p.m. IST.

The referee for the match will be Matthew Carley, assisted by Wayne Barnes and Christopher Ridley. The TMO, locked away in their bunker, will be Brian MacNeice.

Wales and Fiji have met on 13 occasions in the run-up to this World Cup encounter. Wales have won 11 of those matches, Fiji claimed one win, and one clash ended with both sides on level pegging. You would be forgiven, going by the history books, for thinking this seems an open-and-shut case that will end in another triumph for Wales, but with shock victories for the Flying Fijians such as their last game in the Summer Internationals, England v Fiji, could we see a different result on the day? Let's find out as we delve down the rabbit hole into my Wales v Fiji prediction.

🔍 Wales v Fiji Winner Prediction

In a complete twist to the norm, Fiji find themselves seventh in the world rankings compared to Wales in tenth, so I would start by saying this game will certainly see a divide in opinion amongst fans. My analysis has given me a lot to think about, but ultimately, I think Wales may just nudge the win. Having said that, I believe they will have to fight every second of the game if they have any hope of smiles on faces after 80 minutes, so I am only expecting there to be three points difference on the final scoreboard.

✔️ Wales v Fiji Betting Tips

1️⃣ Match Winner: Wales to Win

I believe the bookies are offering competitive match winner odds for this game, so I would be tempted to place a small bet on Wales to win at 1.57 at Betway. As I've said throughout this prediction, however, this is going to be a tight game, so an upset very much could happen. In that case, as ever, I would recommend being smart about anything you might wager - only play within your means!

2️⃣ Handicap Winner: Fiji to Win (+5)

It's going to be a close one, and I'm predicting that Wales will only be three points to the good after 80 minutes. For that reason, my handicap pick would be Fiji to win (+5) at 1.96 at TonyBet Sports, meaning that your bet would be successful if Wales win only by four points.
