Germany Women vs China Women Predictions
Germany remain one of the dominant forces in Women’s international football and they are one of only two nations that have ever won the Women’s World Cup on more than one occasion. That being said, this Nationalelf vintage is not of the same quality as the teams that won those trophies in 2003 and 2007 and that’s perhaps why they’re only third favourites to win the trophy having finished fourth in the last World Cup four years ago.
There are still some serious star turns in Martina Voss-Tecklenburg’s squad though including captain Alexandra Popp and Lyon duo Dzsenifer Marozsan and Carolin Simon, who come into the tournament fresh from winning the Champions League with les Fenottes. They come into the tournament in fine form too, having not lost in their last 12 international outings, meaning it’s hardly surprising that they’re favourites here at 24/100 with William Hill.
China have a richer history within the Womens’ game than they do the mens. The Asian country hosted the inaugural World Cup back in 1991 and have hosted it again since, reaching the Quarter Finals stage on all six occasions that they have competed in the finals (although they did miss out on the last tournament in Canada four years ago). This year, the chances of equalling their best ever run and reaching the final seem minimal.
After qualifying for the tournament with relative ease, the Steel Roses preparations for the campaign faltered somewhat as they struggled to compete in the Algarve Cup three months ago, losing all three of their fixtures against Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands. Having then lost their final warm-up fixture against hosts France, a turnaround seems unlikely here, hence odds of 9/1 on a China victory with PaddyPower.
Instead, we anticipate a comfortable victory for a Germany side that not only possesses more star quality but have every reason to come into the tournament with morale high following the victories that they managed to rack up in advance of the tournament on that 12 game unbeaten run. With the attacking quality that they have, we expect die Nationalelf to win this one with a one goal handicap at odds of 5/6 with Bet365.
Wolfsburg striker Alexandra Popp is the star turn in this Germany side. The 28 year old has racked up no fewer than 46 goals in 96 international caps so far and six of those have come in her last seven outings. We’re backing the Witten-born superstar to open her account for the World Cup by scoring in her side’s opening game at odds of 11/10 with PaddyPower.
