France Women News and Form – Another comfortable win for the hosts?

France, who are the 10/3 favourites to win the World Cup, started their tournament with a big win over South Korea in Paris. Eugenie Le Sommer got them up and running with a ninth-minute strike, with Wendie Renard adding two more to the tally before half time. With five minutes to go, Amandine Henry made it 4-0.

Last week’s opening World Cup victory at the Parc des Princes was France’s sixth successive win. In fact, the French have been in outstanding form over the past 18 months or so, winning a staggering 14 of their last 15 matches across all competitions.

Les Bleus will book their place in the last 16 with a win over Norway in Nice on Wednesday. After playing the Norwegians, France end Group A with a game against Nigeria at Roazhon Park in Rennes next Monday.

Diacre’s ladies are the clear favourites in this one, with bet365 pricing them at just 1/3 to pick up all three points. The French will no doubt take some stopping on home turf in midweek.

Norway Women News and Form – Difficult task in Nice for the Grasshoppers?

Nothing can really compare to France’s stunning recent record, but Norway are in decent nick themselves. Since losing 1-0 to Canada in a friendly at the beginning of the year, the Norwegians have won five of their last six, including big victories over the likes of Poland, South Africa and Nigeria.

The Grasshoppers began their World Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win over Nigeria in Reims. Martin Sjogren’s side were quick out of the blocks at the Stade Auguste-Delaune, scoring all three goals before the 37th minute.

With Norway in such fine fettle, could they be dark horses in the 2019 World Cup? Before facing the hosts in Nice on Wednesday, the Norwegians are available at the tempting odds of 35/1 (Unibet) to win the World Cup.

Despite Norway kicking off with a resounding win over the Nigerians, the bookies are not giving them much hope in this one, with BetVictor pricing them at 9/1 to cause an upset at the Allianz Riviera.

France Women v Norway Women Predictions

France win: Even though Norway are in terrific form themselves, I can’t see past a France win in Nice. Les Bleus have blown away the majority of their opponents over the last couple of years, and they should be too strong for a dogged Norwegian outfit in this one. Put a few quid on the French to win -1 at 20/21. There’s also excellent value in bet365’s 5/1 for the hosts to win by a 2-0 correct scoreline on Wednesday night.
