Japan Women vs Scotland Women Match Preview
Scotland Women failed to take revenge for a EURO 2017 loss as they opened their first World Cup campaign with a 2-1 loss to England, where Lee Alexander showed off but failed to save points. They now travel to Rennes for their Matchday 2 against Japan and surely hope for more after a rock-solid streak seen beforehand.
Indeed, Shelley Kerr’s ladies have bagged four wins and a draw in five outings since early March and we should now see them very motivated to make an impact after a great finish to the Qualifiers as well as some very good displays since.
Japan Women have, on the other hand, been denied points in a somewhat surprising goalless draw against Argentina on the opening day of the campaign in France. Not only that, they now have to end a five-match winless streak across competitions and Asako Takakura’s ladies could have a lot on their minds.
Nadeshiko have been scoring goals on the regular beforehand, though, and we now expect them very motivated to make it count as well. We thus expect a more exciting contest on their part this time around and we do see them overcoming the challenge on the day.
We will thus stick with Japan to bag the points and finally return to the winning ways at a crucial time, as we back them at 10/13 with Unibet and hope to see them convert their chances this time around.
We should thus be in for a more exciting contest this time around too, which has us going for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 11/10 with bet365. We’ve seen Japan regularly enjoy such clashes ahead of the tournament and we now hope for a display more reminiscent of such occasions.
