Brazil Women vs Jamaica Women Predictions
Brazil’s women’s side have been known to play with the same rhythm and flair as their male counterparts in the past but they have not enjoyed the same success in terms of silverware. Although they are clearly the dominant force in South America having won seven of the eight Copa America Feminina tournaments that have been played to date, as Canarinhas have never won the World Cup before, reaching the final on only one occasion.
Vadao’s squad are not exactly coming into this fixture in the best of shape either. Whilst they still possess some star power, not least in the shape of captain six-time World Player of the Year Marta, Brazil have been desperately struggling for form this year, losing all of their last nine consecutive matches in all competitions. Can they pick up a win when it matters as expected here though at odds of 1/12 with Unibet?
Jamaica’s national team have never reached a World Cup before and they’ve been on quite a journey since playing their first fixture in 1991. The Reggae Girlz had to briefly disband in the last decade due to a lack of funds, before avid supporter Cedella Marley, daughter of music legend Bob, invested her efforts into the team to help bring them back to standard and now, they’re at the highest point of their history after qualifying for the World Cup in France.
Given that the CONCACAF qualifying section is not the strongest, many expect Hue Menzies’ outfit to struggle in Europe, but they make the trip in fantastic form having lost just one of their last six matches and in the last 12 months they have picked up victories against more experienced Chile, Panama and Costa Rica sides. Can they spring perhaps the biggest possible shock of the group stages with a win here at 25/1 with Bet365?
Actually, we’re backing them to put up a real fight in this game. Brazil may have been preparing with friendlies against some of the strongest teams in the world, but that run of nine consecutive defeats will have dented confidence no doubt and although Jamaica haven’t faced many teams as strong as this Canarinhos outfit of late, they have picked up some impressive results and will be difficult to beat. Odds of 10/1 with Bet365 look worth a couple of quid to us.
The story of Jamaica striker Khadija Shaw is a remarkable one. Having lost four of her brothers, the young forward has battled through adversity to become the star turn of a Reggae Girlz outfit that have captured the imagination of a nation and at 22 years of age, she has already racked up no fewer than 31 international goals in just 21 games. Despite this, she’s out at 4/1 to score at any time in this fixture with PaddyPower.
