England Women vs Scotland Women Predictions
England Women are among the favourites to lift the World Cup in France this summer. Although they’ve never made it as far as the final of the competition in the past, the Lionesses have improved vastly in recent years, and have reached at least the last eight stage of the last three World Cups including a semi-final appearance at the last tournament in Canada four years ago and on paper, their side has improved even further since then.
Under Phil Neville, the Lionesses have shown rather unpredictable form in the last year or so and they come into the tournament having won four, drawn one and lost three of their last eight fixtures, with defeats to New Zealand and Canada a cause for concern for the former Manchester United coach. The likes of Fran Kirby and Toni Duggan will be expected to fire England to a winning start here at odds of 1/5 with Bet365.
Scotland’s women will take part in their first ever World Cup in France this summer. The Tartan Army have been increasing the funding in the women’s game and improving steadily over recent years and are now reaping the rewards with a first ever qualification to the finals of the tournament. A run of five straight victories to end the campaign were enough to secure their route through, a run that included home and away wins over Poland.
Preparatory friendlies against the likes of the USA and Iceland didn’t go to plan, but Shelley Kerr’s side have returned to form since those defeats and make the trip to France on the back of a five game unbeaten run. There is plenty of experience and quality in this Scotland squad and players like Rachel Corsie, Joanne Love and Kim Little will prove key if they’re to cause a shock and beat their old enemies here at 14/1 with William Hill.
We’re anticipating quite a low-scoring game here. England may have smashed Scotland 6-0 in the last meeting between these two rivals, but Scotland have certainly improved in the last two years, especially defensively, and they won’t want to go down without a fight in their first ever World Cup outing. We’re anticipating few chances in what is sure to be quite a nervy fixture so under 2.5 goals at 21/20 with Bet365 looks good to us.
