France (w): Six wins in a row ( Recent Form: W W W W W )
A much better start would have the French women's national team last Friday, can hardly imagine. In the opening match of this World Cup, the protégés of Corinne Diacre prevailed 4-0 against South Korea and thus prove after the first match day in Group A, as expected, the first place. Already at break, "Les Bleues" were 3-0 up front and therefore did not even start to doubt the successful debut in the approach. Outstanding player on the pitch was center-back Wendie Renard, who scored two goals in her inimitable manner and defensively sealed the shop against harmless Asian women. Thanks to the excellent performance in the so important opening match, the French are now going into the second match with a big chest. On Wednesday evening, then a very different caliber waiting for the nation, which has so far been ranked fourth as the best result in a World Cup finals. Nevertheless, the odds of bookmakers between France and Norway imply a clear favorite role of the hosts. Although the media perception of the women's team can not keep pace with the recent almost positive coverage of the men's World Cup, France is currently sparking a new euphoria, which must certainly be cited as a pro argument to play in the match France vs. Norway to make a suitable prognosis. In the current calendar year, the world ranking fourth won seven of his eight internationals before his own spectators. Only against Germany put it at the end of February a 0-1 bust. Incidentally, this match against Alexandra Popp and Co. was also the only one in 2019 that ended with less than 2.5 goals. In the other seven matches, the co-favorite for the World Cup title scored a whopping 25 goals, well over three per game. From a statistical point of view, it can not be denied that on Wednesday evenings - even if it is a competitive match against an uncomfortable opponent - bets could pay off for at least three hits. Coach Corinne Diacre, who coached France's second-division men's club Clermont from 2014 to 2017 and was voted best coach in Ligue 2 by the association, usually prefers an offensive goal and has set himself the goal, not only with local spectators good results, but also with a bold playing style forward to inspire. The individual quality of internationally outstanding players like Eugenie Le Sommer, Kadidiatou Diani or Delphine Cascarino underpins Diacre's concept as well as our advice.
Norway (w): After two great wins ( Recent Form: W W L W W )
With two European champion titles (1987, 1993) and the biggest success so far with the triumph at the 1995 World Cup, the Norwegian team remains one of the most successful women's national teams in Europe. In recent years, however, the development curve of the Scandinavians did not necessarily point in the right direction. In the recent World Cup edition Norway dropped out in the second round; two years later at the EURO 2017 even after the preliminary round was over. Consequently, the "Gresshoppene", as the nickname of the women's team, are currently granted in France only outsider chances on the title coup. At least the prelude was for the team of the Swedish coach Martin Sjögren absolutely according to plan. Thanks to a convincing first half, in the world ranking 12. After all three goals, it was after 90 minutes 3: 0 for the Norwegians against Nigeria. Similar to the French women, the Northern European women have the opportunity on Wednesday evening to make the premature entry into the round of the last 16 perfect. Even in the event of a defeat, the Sjögren-Elf would keep all trumps in their own hands and would eventually have the chance to increase their own account to six points against the underdog from South Korea next Monday. Nevertheless, the eagerly awaited top game offers the opportunity to review the team's current level of performance at the highest level of competition. As a result, we assume that the team from the Kingdom of Norway will throw everything in the balance to ensure a good result.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, both teams were known to play attacking football this calendar year. With the fan support in the back, especially the Diacre ladies want to burn down another fireworks and thus incite the euphoria in the home. The individual quality is usually higher for women's teams on offense than on the defensive. Personal mistakes in the defense network are by no means a rarity, so we also give a tip to over 2.75 goals. A 2-1 win for the Grande Nation favorites would also be included in the right score segment, such as a 3-0 draw or a 2-2 draw which, despite the clear distribution of odds, we do not consider it impossible.
France (w) VS Norway (w)
O/U Pick: Over 2.75 Goals
