England have made an assured start to their Women’s European Championship campaign and look worthy favourites to secure a third straight Group D success when taking on Portugal.
A point would be enough to see the Three Lionesses progress as pool winners but Mark Sampson will be keen to maintain the standards of earlier victories against Scotland and Spain.
With eight goals scored and none conceded so far, 7/10 for another win to nil is worth including in our Portugal Women vs England Women betting tips.
A Look At Portugal’s Betting Odds
Portugal are competing at this level for the first time and were understandably delighted to edge out Scotland 2-1 in their last match.
However, there is the feeling that was their cup final and now the emphasis will go back to damage limitation, as when losing 2-0 to Spain.
Head coach Francisco Neto promised: “Portugal will fight with everything we have, for sure.”
However, there was an air of resignation in the way he added: “We know it will be very hard, as England are a strong team. We will try our best, but we know England are in the top three in the European rankings.”
Looking at the Portugal Women vs England Women odds, we like 11/2 for a 3-0 scoreline in favour of the group leaders.
A Look At England’s Betting Odds
England had a paltry 26 per cent of the possession when facing Spain on Sunday but still managed to keep their discipline and claim a 2-0 triumph.
After Fran Kirby’s second-minute strike, the Three Lionesses were content to soak up pressure before Jodie Taylor wrapped things up late on, adding to her hat-trick in the 6-0 rout of Scotland.
“The spirit, resilience and will to win were all there,” beamed manager Sampson. “If you’ve got a great defence, striker and goalkeeper, you’re going to be a decent team!”
Defender Lucy Bronze added: “We knew Spain would be good in possession and that’s what they were, but we limited them to that. They didn’t force any saves.
“Our defensive solidity is impressive. There was concentration for the full 90 minutes. The fact they had so much of the ball doesn’t bother me.”
The self-belief displayed certainly caught the eye and 27/20 for the favourites to prevail by more than two clear goals here completes our Portugal Women vs England Women predictions.
Scotland 1-2 PORTUGAL – Carolina Mendes, Ana Leite
ENGLAND 2-0 Spain – Fran Kirby, Jodie Taylor
