England vs Norway Women’s World Cup – Round of 16 Betting Preview

There is a lot of optimism running through the England Women’s camp at the FIFA 2015 World Cup. After their opening defeat against the talented and powerful French outfit, England Women have thrown off the shackles and put in decent attacking performances in 2-1 wins over Mexico and Colombia.

Now they face up to Norway Women in the round of sixteen, but this is far from a routine game for Mark Sampson’s troops. Even though England are narrow 11/8 favourites for the win, they have won just three of sixteen previous matches against Norway Women.

Football Betting OffersEngland Women 11/8, Norway Women 19/10, Draw 223/10 at Bet 365

Of those fourteen prior clashes, England Women have lost 11. Their one prior clash at the Women’s World Cup was won by Norway 2-0 back in 1995. Norway thrashed the Ivory Coast and Thailand in the group stage, but most notably held the powerhouse Germans to a 1-1 draw.

Of concern for England Women is that the goals they conceded against Mexico and Colombia both came in stoppage time, which suggests that they don’t keep their eye on the ball until the final whistle. Norway should rattle the Lionesses here and both teams to score is nicely poised at even money.

This genuinely may need extra time and if that happens, would lean towards England’s deeper squad to edge through. England to win in extra time is a 9/1 industry price.
