Norway vs England prediction & best bets, Women’s World Cup preview
England will start favourite in the Women’s World Cup quarter-final against Norway at Stade Oceane In Le Havre on Friday.
Priced at $7.00 to win the World Cup, England is at $1.91 to defeat Norway ($3.60), while the draw is paying $3.40.
England, which is undefeated with four wins in France, has given up only one goal and finished top of group D.
The Lionesses defeated Cameroon 3-0 in their round-of-16 match, in what proved to be almost farcical scenes as the losing side threatened to walk off the pitch twice.
Steph Houghton (14th minute), Ellen White (45+4) and Alex Greenwood (58) scored the goals for England, who have never made a final at a women’s World Cup.
Norway finished second in Group A, behind hosts France, who beat them 2-1. Norway’s cool victory over Australia, a win coming via penalties, booked its ticket into the quarter-finals.
Norway, which won the 1995 title in Sweden, is an outsider in betting to win the Ladies World Cup, priced at $21.00.
We present our England v Norway predictions, for their quarter-final clash at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019.
Best bets: England v Norway
All odds are taken from WilliamHill.com and were correct at time of publishing.
Both teams to score
While England won 3-0 last start, it might easily have given up goals against Cameroon, whose forwards got in behind the defence far too easily. Norway has more quality than Cameroon so should take advantage of at least one of these opportunities. You can back both teams to score at WilliamHill, where it is paying $1.72.
Ellen White to score
England veteran Ellen White has been there and done it before at World Cups and has been on fire at the 2019 edition with four goals. In what is likely to be a high-scoring affair, we are tipping White to get her name up on the scoreboard. Back White at William Hill, where she is paying $2.90 to score at any time during the quarter-final.
Norway v England Prediction
England has justifiably been backed into heavy favourite in this one and it’s hard seeing Norway winning in regulation time. We are predicting England to win 2-1 with Ellen White the hero with a late one.
