Panama Women vs France Women Tips

  • Over 4.5 goals @ 5/4
  • Wendie Renard to score at anytime @ 6/4

Team news

Wendie Renard shook off an injury to star for France in their win over Brazil and she will again marshal the defence.

France are likely to line up with a similar side to that which beat the Brazilians as they look to secure progression to the knockout stages.

Panama are playing for pride after their elimination and may rotate somewhat for this clash.

Over 4.5 goals @ 5/4

Panama have struggled at this year’s Women’s World Cup, losing 4-0 to Brazil in their opener before going down 1-0 to Jamaica in their second game to confirm their elimination.

Their two final warm-up games before the tournament were a 7-0 loss to Spain and a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Japan. It’s clear that they find high-class opposition hard to live with and they look set to find France very tough opponents.

Herve Renard’s side drew with Jamaica in their opener, but followed that up with an impressive 2-1 victory over Brazil and will be looking to go through as group winners with a win here.

The Netherlands’ 7-0 win over Vietnam showed that the top-level teams can rack up a score against the strugglers and that is fancied here, take over 4.5 goals in this clash.

Wendie Renard to score at anytime @ 6/4

Wendie Renard netted the winner in France’s victory over Brazil and her aerial presence can cause issues for Panama in this clash.

Three of the five goals Panama have conceded so far at this tournament have been headers and they may struggle to contain the French captain.

The strugglers have conceded 22 corners across their two matches to this point, so Renard should get plenty of opportunities to come up from the back and test the opponents’ aerial defences.

Against a backline that struggled to deal with balls into the box in their opening two matches, Renard could well add to her 35 goals for the national side in this clash.
