France Women v Iceland Women Betting Tips

France are such a powerful side that they should win this opener at the Euros pretty comfortably against Iceland. France are on a marble run of form at the Euros and wait until you hear this. They have won 41 straight qualifying group matches now for the Euros, a run which started ten years ago after a defeat against, yes, Iceland. Back in the 2008 edition, these two were paired up and France took a 3-1 win. But during qualifying for the tournament, back in June 2007, Iceland recorded a 1-0 over the French. The French did bounce back to take the home win over them and France holds a W7 D1 L1 record against Iceland in meetings. Across those games, France have scored 19 goals to Iceland’s six. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 is a price of 13/20 and if you want to push that over 3.5 goals that is a 13/8 punt.

France have scoring power in them and Eugenie Le Sommer is 1/2 bet365 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the match. France to win to nil is a price of 4/9 so it shows how easy this is expected to be for them. France have won both of their most recent meetings (in 2011 World Cup qualifying) with Iceland to nil, so there is a trend there. Interestingly, these two have never met in a friendly, everything has been competitive for them. It may be very difficult for Iceland to get a foothold in their opening match against such a quality side. They may hunker down and try and get a draw out of this one and take their chances against Austria and Switzerland in the group, but it’s hard to see them avoiding defeat.

France to win: it would be one of the biggest upsets of all time if the French didn’t win this. They will and from a bettering perspective, it just by how much. A three goal winning margin for the French has to have some appeal in this easy game for them.
