Cameroon Women vs New Zealand Women Predictions
Cameroon are one of several international teams that have benefitted from regional qualifying and improvements to structure in the women’s game in recent years, having managed to qualify for the last two World Cups. Now they have their eyes set on making it beyond the group stages, which is still possible despite their poor start to the tournament thanks to the progression of the four best-ranked third-placed finishes.
After Alain Djeumfa’s side lost narrowly by a 1-0 scoreline in their opening fixture to Canada at Stade de la Mosson, they were beaten by the Netherlands in Valenciennes in their second fixture but a win here would likely take them over Nigeria in the rankings of third-placed teams which could leave them in with a chance of progression to the next round. Can they get that win at odds of 2/1 with 888sport?
New Zealand are one of the teams that have found it easier and easier to secure qualification to the World Cup in recent years but they have struggled to make an impact once there. The Football Ferns are currently competing in their fifth edition of the tournament and yet they’re still waiting to progress from the group stages for the first time with no win to their name in a total of 14 matches at Women’s World Cups.
And yet like Cameroon, they can still qualify for the next round of the tournament thanks to the expanded nature of the tournament allowing for teams to progress as one of the best third-placed finishers. In order to do that, they will probably have to beat Cameroon by more than one goal and given that they’re yet to score in two defeats so far that doesn’t seem too likely, but you can back the Antipodean side for a win at 11/8 with Unibet.
We’re backing a low-scoring match here and are surprised to see that the bookies have under 2.5 goals at 21/20 (Unibet). New Zealand are yet to score in this World Cup but have limited the opposition to just three goals whilst Cameroon have only notched up one goal themselves in their opening two fixtures too. We can’t see a particularly high-scoring affair in this one.
It’s difficult to call a winner here as neither side have displayed much quality in the Women’s World Cup so far. With qualification to the knock-out stages still a possibility it could be quite a nervy affair and neither team will want to give too much away to the opposition. We can see the two teams cancelling each other out for a draw at Bet365, a result which will see both sides heading for the airport for the next plane home.
