Argentina Women vs Japan Women Predictions
Argentina Women make their return to the finals of the World Cup after missing out on the last two tournaments in Canada and Germany. Albicelestes had reached the two consecutive tournaments that came previously and they have had some success in regional tournaments too, winning one Sudamericano Femenino and reaching the semi-final stage in the last two Copa América Femenina competitions.
After securing their route through to France with a 5-1 aggregate victory over Panama in the play-offs, preparation hasn’t exactly been perfect for Carlos Borrello’s side. They may have won their final friendly against fellow South American outfit Uruguay, but they lost all three of their FFA Cup of Nations fixtures earlier this year to Korea PR, New Zealand and Australia. Can Argentina spring a shock here at 28/1 with Unibet?
Japan have become one of the strongest teams in Women’s Football over the last few years. Although they have always possessed a competitive side and have never failed to qualify for any of the eight iterations of the Women’s World Cup, Nadeshiko have really been particularly impressive in the last two tournaments, lifting the trophy in Germany eight years ago and reaching the final in Canada four years later.
Although there are still some of the stars of those two campaigns remaining, this squad doesn’t look quite as strong as previously and the Asian outfit do make the journey to France on the back of a four game winless streak that may have dented confidence somewhat. That being said, Asako Takakura’s side have played better opposition than Argentina in those fixtures and they should still win out with ease here at 1/8 with Bet365.
We’ve gone for two banker bets in this game. Although there’s no value at all in the 1/8 on Japan to win, there may be some better value in adding them to win to nil to your accumulator at 8/15 with Bet365. This Argentina side has failed to score in three of it’s last four outings and through players like Aya Sameshima and Rumi Utsugi, Nadeshiko possess both quality and experience at the back that should see them through here.
At the other end of the pitch, Yuika Sugasawa is one to watch out for. The Urawa Red Diamonds striker has 18 international goals to her name already, including her side’s goal in the 1-1 draw with Spain in their final pre-tournament friendly. We’re backing the 28 year old to get on the scoresheet in this game at any time at odds of 3/4 with William Hill.
