France have been backed well ahead of this tournament. With home advantage on their side, they will be hoping that can tip the balance in their favour. They are the pre-tournament favourites alongside holders USA to win the crown this summer. France have such a wonderful squad, and with domestic club Lyon dominating the European club scene again, they are in good shape. Captain Wendie Renard is a brilliant leader at the back. They have superb quality in driving forward through Amandine Henry and Eugenie Le Sommer.

France Women -2 Handicap
5/4

They are strong in all positions and one of the top youngsters at the event could be French forward Valerie Gauvin. France will be expected to get a few goals on the board in this opener, so she could make a bright start. Gauvin is an 8/11 anytime goalscorer option. France have never made it to the semi-finals of a major tournament. But they should easily win this group and push on from there in this competition. France are currently on a five-match winning streak, and they scored at least two goals in each of those. They actually totalled 18 goals in those five games and conceded just the two.

 

Key-Facts – France Women v South Korea Women

South Korea Women News and Form

What a night for South Korea. They are a big outsider for the tournament and they start in one of the most daunting games they could be in. Nerves are going to be high after the opening ceremony and then they have to face one of the tournament favourites. South Korea are not in form either and have gone W2 D1 L4 in their last seven matches. They are winless in three (D1 L2). Four years ago in Canada, they did make a splash in beating out Spain to get out of their group.

They were then stopped in the round of sixteen by France. Not seeing enough of them against top opposition, it’s hard to judge South Korea. But they are not even one of the strongest teams from the AFC. That is based on the last three editions of the Asian Cup where they have taken a third-place finish in each. South Korea only qualified for the 2019 Women’s World Cup via a playoff match against the Philippines. They may struggle to make an impact.

France Women v South Korea Women Predictions

France to win: The French should walk their way to a good strong win in this one. It’s tough to see South Korea getting enough of the ball to raise any threat in this one. France to win to nil is a great fit.
