Women’s World Cup Round 3 Predictions
Costa Rica vs Zambia
Costa Rica ($3.38)
Two sides that can’t qualify for the knockout rounds but can still salvage some pride at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup face off, with Costa Rica taking on Zambia. Both sides were thumped by Spain and Japan in their opening games, with this last game sure to be a chance for both teams to restore some credibility. This will be tight, with Zambia most likely to prevail.
Betting tip: Zambia to win the match ($2.2)
Zambia to win 2-0
Japan vs Spain
The two leading sides in the group face off, as Spain take on Japan. Both teams have been too strong through the tournament so far, cruising through to the knockout rounds but topping the group is very much on the line here. This should be a super game, between two attacking sides – with Spain most likely to come out on top.
Betting tip: Spain to win the match ($1.91)
Spain to win 3-1
Nigeria vs Republic of Ireland
Republic of Ireland ($3.25)
Group topping Nigeria will be looking to book their place in the knockout stages, as they take on the Republic of Ireland. Nigeria have shocked the group, getting results against Canada and Australia and now find themselves very much in the box seat for qualification. For the Republic of Ireland, this will be their last outing, having lost their opening two but they will want to put on a show here. This will be tight, but Nigeria seem confident and should get the job done.
Betting tip: Nigeria to win the match ($2.3)
Nigeria to win 2-1
Australia vs Canada
Arguably the biggest game of the tournament so far pits Australia against Canada, with defeat for either side likely to see them eliminated from the competition. Co-hosts Australia had their wings clipped against Nigeria last time out and now need a win to progress. Canada meanwhile could get through with a draw, but they will want to ensure qualification asap. This will be a belter, with home advantage potentially telling for the Matildas.
Betting tip: Australia to win the match ($2.26)
Australia to win 2-1
Portugal vs USA
USA will be looking to bounce back from their underwhelming draw with the Netherlands, as they take on Portugal. The Portuguese will present a decent challenge here, having overcome Vietnam in their last game, whilst the USA need a big win to ensure top spot in qualifying for the knockout rounds. This will be a good one and the USA should get their act together and pick up a win.
Betting tip: USA to win the match ($1.29)
USA to win 3-1
Vietnam vs Netherlands
Following their excellent draw with the USA last time out, the Netherlands will be looking to put a few goals past Vietnam. For the Vietnamese, this tournament has been a real learning curve and they will want to test themselves again here. The Netherlands meanwhile are through to the knockout stages with a point or better here and they should have way too much for Vietnam in this one.
Betting tip: Netherlands to win the match ($1.03)
Netherlands to win 3-0
China vs England
England will be eager to secure their place in the knockout rounds, as they take on a dangerous China side. A win for China would see them through to the last 16, whilst a draw could also be enough if other results go their way. England meanwhile have won both of their opening games 1-0 and they do have an ominous look about them currently, with the Lionesses likely to get the job done here.
Betting tip: England to win the match ($1.42)
England to win 2-1
Haiti vs Denmark
Denmark are another side looking to book their place in the knockout rounds, as they take on bottom of the group Haiti. Both China and England struggled to overcome Haiti and they are a tricky side, who should make life difficult for Denmark. The Danes meanwhile were unlucky against England, and they should be able to pick up a valuable win here against Haiti.
Betting tip: Denmark to win the match ($1.3)
Denmark to win 2-1
Sweden vs Argentina
Top of the group Sweden will be looking to maintain their 100% record as they take on Argentina. The Swedes have been very impressive in their opening two fixtures, and they look well placed to maintain a deep run. Argentina meanwhile earned a good point against South Africa, and they are a side that could cause problems for Sweden, but it should be a comfortable enough win for the Swedes.
Betting tip: Sweden to win the match ($1.54)
Sweden to win 3-1
Italy vs South Africa
South Africa ($5.5)
Italy have their fate in their own hands with the knockout stages looming and they take on South Africa next. Italy have been earmarked as one of the sides to keep an eye on in the competition and they will want to bag a win here. However, South Africa won’t roll over for this one, with plenty of solid players in their squad but Italy should get the job done here.
Betting tip: Italy to win the match ($1.67)
Italy to win 2-0
Jamaica vs Brazil
Brazil and Jamaica face off, with the winner assured of a place in the next round. Jamaica have been the surprise package of the competition so far and they currently have 4 points to their name, whilst Brazil sit a point behind them, with work to do if they are to qualify for the last 16. Anything other than a Brazil win would see Jamaica through but it is hard to see anything other than a Brazil win.
Betting tip: Brazil to win the match ($1.22)
Brazil to win 3-0
France vs Panama
France haven’t been at their fluent best so far at the World Cup, but a win here would see them through to the last 16. Beating Brazil last time out could prove to be a catalyst for France, who are one of the favourites to go all the way at this World Cup. Panama are yet to pick up a point at this World Cup and France should have way too much for them here.
Betting tip: France to win the match ($1.04)
France to win 3-0
Morocco vs Colombia
Top of the group Colombia have created history at this World Cup, and they will want to complete the job against Morocco. Both sides have upset the odds in Australia and New Zealand, and they can both reach the last 16 if results go their way. Morocco will be bang up for this, but Colombia are in excellent nick, and they should pick up another win here.
Betting tip: Colombia to win the match ($1.5)
Colombia to win 2-0
Germany vs South Korea
South Korea ($13)
Germany still have work to do if they are to reach the last 16 and they take on South Korea. Losing to Colombia was a real shock for Germany, who now need to beat South Korea to be absolutely assured of their place in the knockout rounds. South Korea meanwhile have run their race at this World Cup, and they will want to put on a performance, but Germany should prevail in this one.
Betting tip: Germany to win the match ($1.29)
Germany to win 2-0
