Match Preview

The action in Group B gets underway with two thrilling fixtures in the Women’s World Cup at the end of July. Canada has often been a nation that has surpassed expectations in the tournament, and they will be bidding to win the World Cup for the first time in their history this year. Their previous best performance came in 2003, as they reached the semi-finals.

However, they could face a battle to make it out of the group stage, as they come into the World Cup in exceptionally poor form. They have lost each of their last two internationals, and four of their previous five. Their most recent defeat was suffered against France in the middle of April, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat.

Nigeria certainly appears to be a nation that are on the rise in the women’s game, as they will be playing in their tenth World Cup. They achieved an excellent result four years ago, as they made it through to the round of 16. Their best showing came in 1999, as they made it through to the quarterfinal stage.

Nigeria could be primed to outperform their odds at the World Cup this year, as they come into the tournament having won their previous three internationals. Their most recent success was a standout win over New Zealand, as they landed a 3-0 success over one of the hosts of this year’s edition of the World Cup.

Nigeria vs Canada Prediction

The odds suggest that this is a miss-match on the opening day of the tournament, but there is certainly reason to question Canada at the World Cup. They come into the tournament in poor form, and an aggressive Nigerian side is likely to pose serious questions. It may be worth siding with Nigeria on the spread.
