The Germans undoubtedly look like the better side and the odds seem to agree. However, the favoritism they’re showing Germany is extremely slight, making them a lucrative straight up option. This is likely due to the tumultuous start they had in the tournament. Facing a weaker China team, most online soccer betting fans were expecting a bit of a blowout. Instead we saw the Germans resort to a late-goal from Giulia Gwinn to pick up what should have been an easy win. Because Germany were top scorers in the UEFA qualifiers, the expectation was that they would have a hot start to the tourney. And if they struggled against the likes of china, what can we expect them to do against one of the Women’s World Cup betting favorites?
Players to Watch: Giulia Gwinn (1 GP, 1 G, 0 A), Lena Oberdorf (1 GP, 0 G 0 A), and Marina Hegering (1 GP, 0 G, 0 A).
Like the Germans, Spain had a less than stellar start to the tournament. Nonetheless, the team was surprised when South Africa took an early lead in the match. That lead was quickly erased by a three-goal volley from the Spanish that saw Jennifer Hermoso score twice. Hermoso should look to take advantage of Germany’s under protected center-halves in transitions this Wednesday. After all, that particular weakness was fully exposed in the match against the Chinese. In fact, had China not been so careless with their finishes, they could have easily upset the Germans in their World Cup debut.
Players to Watch: Jennifer Hermoso (1 GP, 2 G, 0 A), Lucia Garcia (1 GP, 1 G, 0 A), and Nahikari Garcia (1 GP, 0 G, 0 A).
