France Women vs Brazil Women Predictions
France have never been one of the dominant forces in women’s international football, having only ever made it as far as the final four stage of the World Cup on one previous occasion and having never even made it beyond the Quarter Final stage of the European Championships. There is a feeling however, that all that could change on home soil this summer just one year after the men lifted their version of the trophy in Russia.
With the home advantage, les Bleues have been in fine form so far, kicking off the tournament with a rampant 4-0 win over South Korea and following that up with victories over both Norway and Nigeria, having even used the game against the African side to rest some key players with the group tied up. Can those refreshed players come back into the mix to help them overcome Brazil in the Round of 16 at 7/20 with Unibet?
Brazil, like France, have never quite been able to reach the heights expected of them on the World Cup stage in the past. Canarinhas have been undoubtedly the stand-out side in South America, winning all but one of the eight Copa America Feminina tournaments that have taken place since 1991, but they are yet to lift the most coveted trophy of all, losing in the final once back in 1999.
Vadao’s side kicked off the tournament with a comfortable 3-0 win over World Cup debutants Jamaica, but things had seemingly gone awry after the second game as they lost 3-2 in a thrilling clash with Australia. A penalty from Marta was enough to secure the victory in the final group game against Italy that would send the Selecao through to this second round game – can they now spring a shock and knock out the hosts at 8/1 with Bet365?
True to the country’s traditions, Brazil always seek to play with an attacking swagger and despite winning only two of their three group stage games, Canarinhas did manage to rack up six goals across those fixtures. France may struggle to contain their opponents’ attacking qualities at times here, but we still expect them to have enough quality to win, which is why we’re back les Bleues to win the game and both teams to score at 23/10 with Ladbrokes.
We’ve already successfully back Eugenie le Sommer to get on the scoresheet twice in this tournament. The France vice-captain found the net in the victories over South Korea and Norway and she will come back into the starting eleven in this game after being rested against Nigeria. Having already racked up 76 international goals we think the Lyon forward will add another to her tally here at PaddyPower.
