Iceland Women vs France Women prediction & odds

Kick-off: 2000, 18/07/2022

Stadium: New York Stadium, Rotherham


Iceland will hope to take advantage of France already claiming top spot in Group D by joining them in the quarter-finals.

Les Bleues have won two out of two and can afford to take their foot off the gas here while Iceland need a win to be certain of finishing second.

France will surely rotate their squad and that makes their opponents worth backing with two goals on the handicap at 1.88 as our first Iceland Women vs France Women prediction.

Iceland Women Odds

Two draws from two games has given Iceland a decent chance of qualifying and playing France in the final round of group games has done them a favour.

They would have been in an even stronger position had they capitalised on taking a third-minute lead against Italy on Thursday but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Iceland, who also drew 1-1 with Belgium in their first game, took the lead from the first chance of the game. Sveindis Jane Jonsdottir’s long throw caused panic in the Italy box and Karolina Lea Vilhjalmsdottir let fly with a shot that flew inside the post.

Valentina Bergamaschi equalised in the 62nd minute, though, and both teams wasted chances to nick a late winner.

Iceland have the worst passing accuracy at the tournament after the first two rounds of matches so they will look to defend in numbers and hit France on the break.

Looking at the Iceland Women vs France Women odds, we like 3.50 for a goalless first half.

France Women Odds

France were not at their ruthless best last time out against Belgium but it was still job done after a 2-1 victory which followed on from a 5-0 win against Italy.

France took the lead early on when Sakina Karchaoui delivered a ball at the back post for Kadidiatou Diani to nod in from close range.

Belgium equalised in the 36th minute against the run of play but France grabbed what proved to be the winner five minutes later when Griedge Mbock Bathy emphatically headed home from close range.

France could even afford to miss a penalty late on and coach Corinne Diacre  said: “We are going to rest up and savour the victory and make the most of these joyful moments when they arrive.

“It’s very rare to qualify after two games so were going back to base camp, rest up and take stock regards to injuries and then prepare for Iceland.”

France should have the quality to win this, especially if Iceland start to throw more players forward later on.

For the last of our Iceland Women vs France Women betting tips, we’ll take 4.10 for Les Bleues to win after a drawn first half.
