Norway Women v Australia Women Betting Tips – Women’s World Cup, 22nd June 8.00pm

The Norwegians finished second to France in the group stage and were pretty tight and never looked in danger not qualifying. They will get a pretty strong test in this one though as they step out against Australia. There has been plenty of character shown by the Matildas after having looked down and out.

Norway Women News and Form

With wins over Nigeria and South Korea in the group stage, Norway easily got enough on the board to take second in the group behind France. The Norwegians lost their scrap with the French 2-1 but in a controversial manner. But that’s all behind them now and the defeat against France was just their second in their last seven games, Norway winning the other five in that run of form. Norway really are not a bad side at all, they are generally well organised and give the opposition a tough time. They have surprisingly not been quite as strong at the back as expected.

Sam Kerr – Australia Score & Win Double
9/4

Paddy Power

Norway have taken one clean sheet in their last five games, which, in having to stand up to the Australian attack, is going to be a bit worrisome. The Norwegians have netted in six of their last seven games and have scored at least two goals in three of their last four. So the output from them has not been bad. It suggests that they should be able to create chances against the Australian defence which doesn’t look great. So this could be a really interesting knockout game.

 

Key-Facts – Norway Women v Australia Women

  • Norway have won five of their last seven games (L2)
  • The winner could face England in the quarter finals
  • Matildas’ striker Sam Kerr has five goals for the tournament

Australia Women News and Form

Australia powered their way to the next round with a 4-1 win over Jamaica in their final group stage game. Their superstar forward Sam Kerr netted all of their goals in that game, taking her tournament tally up to five. It wasn’t the greatest of starts by Australia in this tournament though. They threw away a lead in their opener against Italy to end up losing. Then they had to fight back from 2-0 down against Brazil to collect a win. So they have been down and they have certainly had their ups as well in an eventful tournament. Kerr is the even-money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for this one* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 21st, 2019 at 6:24 p.m.).

Australia’s overall form is actually a bit shaky at the moment and it’s nothing to write home about. They were on a three-match losing streak, conceding ten goals in those fixtures. The wins over Brazil and Jamaica have left them in a better place but there still remains big questions about their defence. They continuously produce well going forward, but they are really slack at the back. Six of Australia’s last seven games have gone over 2.5 goals. The Australians are now W4 D1 L2 in their last seven World Cup fixtures. They are just one of those awkward teams to play against as they are direct, quick and competitive. England could be facing the winner of this game in the quarterfinals.

Norway Women v Australia Women Predictions

Australia to win: Norway are a tidy side but they are missing that star touch that Australia have in Sam Kerr. It’s never a great thing to rely on one player of course, but the Matildas have something special in her and as long as they keep getting the ball to her, she will continue to be a huge threat. Australia to win & both teams to score.
