Spain Women vs USA Women Predictions
Spain don’t have quite as strong a tradition of success in women’s football as you may expect for a country that is quite so obsessed with the game. In fact, this is the first time that la Roja have managed to make it as far as the knock-out stages of the World Cup, having only qualified for the tournament for the first time in Canada four years ago. As such, reaching this stage is already a big achievement for the European side.
A comfortable 3-1 win in the opening match against South Africa set Jorge Vilda’s side in motion for the tournament. A narrow one goal defeat to a very strong Germany outfit followed, before a goalless draw with China was enough to secure second place in Group B on goal difference. Can they now cause one of the biggest shocks of WWC history by dumping out the tournament favourites at odds of 9/1 with Bet365?
USA lifted the trophy in their neighbouring country of Canada four years ago to become the first team in the history of the Women’s World Cup to win the competition on three separate occasions. Being the holders and possessing the best record in the history of the competition places pressure on the Stars and Stripes to perform in France this summer but they are answering that pressure with aplomb so far.
A stunning 13-0 win over minnows Thailand in the opening game drew the attention of football fans the world over and although they weren’t quite so ruthless in victories over Chile and Sweden, Jill Ellis’ team were still able to qualify with nine points, three clean sheets and an incredible 18 goals on the board. They should face few problems in overcoming their European opponents here, hence odds of 2/5 with Unibet.
We’re anticipating an assured victory for the USA here but it won’t be the kind of hammering that they dished out to Thailand in the group stages. Spain have remained strong at the back so far, conceding only twice in their group stage fixtures and USA’s have scored five in their last two games, indicating a slightly more reserved approach going forward. We think it will be comfortable, but not too comfortable and are backing 2-0 at 11/2 with Bet365.
Alex Morgan hasn’t scored in USWNT’s last two matches after racking up five goals against Thailand in her side’s opening fixture of the tournament. The 29 year old will not allow that drought to drag on for too long – she has 106 goals in 165 appearances for her country so far, so we have to back the Orlando Pride striker to get back amongst the goals here at odds of 5/4 with Ladbrokes .
