South Korea Women vs Norway Women Match Preview
Fans of the Norway women’s football team may feel a sense of déjà vu from 16 years ago, assuming their memories stretch so far back, when their ladies face South Korea in Reims.
At the 2003 World Cup in the United States, Norway, South Korea and France were in the same group, as they are again. Norway had to beat South Korea in their last game and did so 7-1 to ensure they reached the quarter-finals along with group winners Brazil.
It’s a similar story this time except France are now the hosts, they have already qualified and instead it’s Nigeria whom the Norwegians are aiming to pip for a guaranteed last-16 place by getting the better of South Korea.
All the evidence suggests Norway should not have a problem. They very much appear to be the second best team in the pool after a narrow defeat to France and a 3-0 victory against Nigeria, also in this Reims stadium. Plus, they have the back-up that Nigeria play France simultaneously and are big outsiders for that contest.
South Korea have been beaten to nil by both France and Nigeria and while they still have a mathematical chance to qualify, it looks like they will be going home after this game.
From a betting perspective, the best value appears to lie with backing Norway to be ahead at the end of both halves, especially because all three of their goals against Nigeria were scored in the first 37 minutes.
