The sides cannot be separated going into the game, with both boasting four wins from their last five matches.
Wales, however, sit 21st in the world rankings, with their opponents currently fourth in the standings.
But world rankings are certainly not the priority for either country right now, with both using this friendly as preparation for their upcoming Nations League matches.
Gareth Southgate’s men sit second in Group A2, having narrowly beaten Iceland 1-0 and drawn 0-0 at Denmark.
They host group leaders Belgium on Sunday, before welcoming Denmark to Wembley on Wednesday.
Ryan Giggs meanwhile has guided his side to the top of Group B4 after 1-0 wins against Finland and Bulgaria.
They continue their pursuit of top spot with a trip to Ireland on Sunday, followed by an away meeting with Bulgaria on Wednesday.
But despite the friendly fixture against Southgate’s team, Giggs will still be keen to come away from the capital with a victory.
The hosts are, however, strong favourites. They can be backed at 1/3 to win the game, with an away victory currently available at 9/1.
A draw has been given odds of 4/1.
Southgate certainly has a long list of talented players at his disposal, many of which have started the new Premier League campaign in stunning fashion.
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has three goals and six assists already, but he now finds himself in competition for a starting role with Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The 23-year-old has six goals for the season, with fellow striker Danny Ings on three.
Kane is currently 5/2 to score first on Thursday, with Calvert-Lewin and Ings available at 4/1 and 9/2 respectively.
But many other star forwards will be keen to impress at the national stadium.
Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling can be backed at 9/2 to score first, with Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish currently 10/1.
The Villa captain has been given odds of 3/1 to score anytime after his remarkable display in the astonishing 7-2 victory against Liverpool.
Both teams to score at Wembley can be backed at 10/11.
