Scotland Women vs Argentina Women Match Preview
Scotland Women proved themselves a very tough nut to crack in France, as Lee Alexander showed off but it just wasn’t enough in narrow losses to England (2-1) and Japan (2-1) in their first two World Cup outings. They will now want more as they meet Argentina in Paris and will surely want to end the campaign on a positive note.
However, their struggles to retain stability at the back look worrying and Shelley Kerr will have to find a cure if they’re to deny the rivals, despite inspiring confidence ahead of the tournament – with a five-match unbeaten streak including four wins and a draw earned ahead of the trip.
Argentina have been rock-solid at the back and held Japan to a goalless draw on the opening day and only suffered a 1-0 loss to England, where Vanina Correa proved her worth but Jodie Taylor netted the winner just past the hour mark – leaving them with a vague chance at making the top 2 cut.
Albiceleste have thus conceded just one goal in two games in France and Jose Carlos Borrello will surely want to build on such performances, which should make his task of lifting their team spirits easier. They’re meeting Scotland for the first time ever and we now feel they can leave unbeaten, despite not seeing them into the knockout stages.
We have seen both sides enjoy very narrow occasions and we now hope for another such contest, as we stick our necks out for the sides to share the spoils and back a Draw at 3/1 with Paddy Power – which seems like more than just a lively longshot at this point.
We’ve also seen both sides rock-solid at the back and only slim margins could make the difference again, as we go for a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT as both sides enjoy a tough defensive approach and it comes at seemingly generous 41/50 with Unibet.
