Nigeria Women and South Korea Women were both beaten in the first games of their Women’s World Cup campaign and another loss here would see them holding onto their hopes of progression by a thread. See our betting tips and predictions below to see which team we’re backing to win tonight.
The first matches from both of these nations did not inspire us to think they can go deep into the tournament and we might get a big of an upset today. South Korea are the favourites to win this match but they were really poor against the hosts France in their first match. They lost the game 4-0 and only managed one shot on target, one corner and 38% possession. Nigeria Women were also soundly beaten in their first game against Norway, but at least they got forward and created eight chances and had five corners.
It is a rather tentative selection for this one but at the prices we’re going for a Nigeria Women victory here. There is no appeal in backing South Korea based on their performance against France and before the World Cup got underway they failed to find the net against Sweden, and only managed a 1-1 draw with Iceland. Nigeria were scoring goals though, and beat Slovakia 4-3, Thailand 3-0 and fell to a narrow defeat to Canada.
Goals are not expected in this game and it could be a low scoring match. Neither side look particularly dangerous in front of goal but Nigeria Women do have the exciting Asisat Oshoala, who can play anywhere at the top end of the pitch and her pace could give Nigeria some joy in getting in behind South Korea’s shakey defence this afternoon.
Backing up the earlier betting tip of a Nigeria win, we’re taking a chance on Nigeria winning this match 1-0 at odds of 9/1 with Betfair. Under 2.5 goals is an 8/11 chance for this match and that would also appeal but given that these teams shipped seven goals between them in their opening World Cup 2019 fixtures, it is probably best to leave that alone and take a chance with a small punt on a correct score tip.
