Nigeria Women vs Korea PR Women Match Preview
Korea PR Women meet Nigeria Women at Stade des Alpes in Grenoble looking to bounce back from a thrashing 4-0 loss to France on the opening day of the World Cup, where three goals in the first half already untangled the contest and there was just little Yoon Deuk-Yeo’s ladies could do.
Taegeuk Ladies came into the competition with a three-match winless streak already and while they’ve proven themselves a tougher nut to crack on some occasions, we’ve seen them all over the place against the tournament hosts – which will be just as worrying against African dominants on Wednesday.
Nigeria Women come far from their best shape too, though, and we’ve seen them qualify through African Cup of Nations with more trouble than ever. They’ve beaten Cameroon and South Africa both on penalties after goalless draws and will now want to show off in a tough defensive set up once again.
However, the 3-0 loss to Norway on Saturday was more indicative of their woes against big guns, as Super Falcons struggled to capitalize on the goals scored. Thomas Dennerby will now hope they’re not in for a same sort of challenge as attacking line led by Desire Oparanozie looks for the first goal in France.
We do see them getting it and we’ll now stick our necks out for Nigeria to hold off Korea PR in a Draw priced at 5/2 with Unibet, which feels like more than just a lively longshot with the Taegeuk Ladies’ unpredictable spell of form.
We do feel they’ll have to cope up front with many defensive shortcomings, though, and we’ll thus also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 8/11 with bet365. We’ve seen both conceding on the regular and this feels like more of a generous banker bet.
