There will be huge stakes in Group F on Saturday, as the top two seeds collide at the Women’s World Cup. The pressure will be on France, as they were held to a 0-0 draw in their opening match against Jamaica in Sydney. It was a below-par effort by the French, who have often flattered to deceive throughout their history at the competition.
However, their draw on matchday one was the second time that they have failed to win their opening match at an edition of the World Cup. But, they have kept clean sheets in each of their last four opening matches. Regardless, the pressure is now on France, as they must land victory against Brazil to ensure that qualification remains in their hands.
Brazil brought the samba style of soccer to the competition in their opening match, as they put down a marker for one of the early performances of the tournament. The pick of the goals was scored by Beatriz Zaneratto Joao, who finished off a swift attacking move by the reigning Copa America champions.
History was also made by Ary Borges, as the striker became only the fifth player in World Cup history to score a treble on their debut. Brazil dominated proceedings against a poor Panama side, registering 73% of the possession, and recording 32 shots. However, this will be a much bigger test against France.
France vs Brazil Prediction
France was very poor in their opening match against Jamaica, and there will be pressure on the European side coming into this second match. Therefore, we will be siding with Brazil, who could put down another marker signaling that they have the quality to go deep in the competition this year.
