Nigeria Women News and Form

Nigeria suffered a 3-0 loss in their opener against Norway. That was a tough start for them and they had conceded all of their goals in the first half of the game. So that game went beyond their reach before they really had a chance to settle into the tournament. They did then, however, manage to produce a response in their second game when they took a 2-0 victory over South Korea.

In their last seven games, Nigeria are W3 L4 with their other wins in that sequence coming against Slovakia and Thailand. In their last nine World Cup fixtures now, the African nation have managed to come up with just the two wins (D1 L6). They were on a three-match scoreless streak in World Cup games before their strikes against South Korea. This is a massively difficult challenge for them though in trying to beat the host nation. Nigeria pulled off a surprise in the 2011 edition in beating Canada in their final group game.

Key-Facts – Nigeria Women v France Women

  • Nigeria have scored in one of their last four World Cup games
  • France have won 16 of their last 17 games
  • The French have scored at least two goals in each of their last six

 

France Women News and Form

France were ruthless in attack in producing a 4-0 win over South Korea in their opening game of the tournament. They were made to work by Norway though to get their second. France got the win courtesy of a really controversial penalty decision that was awarded them through VAR. It was a dodgy decision to be fair to Norway. But Eugenie Le Sommer dispatched the spot kick and gave France a 2-1 win. Valerie Guavin was involved in everything up front for them in that game, netting the opening goal. She is a 4/5 anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 14th, 2019 at 9:00 p.m.)

France have put together a six-match winning streak at the moment. In their last sixteen games, they have produced a W15 L1 record. The only team to have beaten them in that sequence of fixtures is Germany. In each of their last six games, France have scored at least two goals, picking up a clean sheet in half of them. There’s not much chance that they are going to ease back at all here. They want the group win. That will put them through to the round of sixteen fixture against one of the best third-placed teams.

Nigeria Women v France Women Predictions

France to win: Hard to see anything other than a victory for France coming up to make it three from three in the group stage. Nigeria are not likely to get much of anything going against them and France to win to nil looks something of a banker.
