Spain vs South Africa | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Stade Oceane will host Saturday’s game between Spain and South Africa, who face each other in Group B at the 2019 Women’s World Cup. South Africa have been struggling to find their best form in 2019, but they should not be written off just yet. Spain are eager to book their place in the knockout stages of the showpiece tournament and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the opening match of their World Cup campaign.
Match Preview Spain vs South Africa
Spain did remarkably well to beat Brazil in a friendly in April, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the 2019 World Cup opener against South Africa. The Banyana Banyanaaim to put an end to their eight-game winless run in 2019, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s clash against La Roja, who are eyeing a place in the last 16 of the tournament in France.
In 2015 Spain participated for the first time ever at the Women’s World Cup finals, with the team failing to impress in the group stages of the tournament in Canada. La Roja picked up only one point from possible nine and, as a result, they failed to advance to the last 16. Jorge Vilda’s women are determined to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign and they are likely to go all guns blazing at South Africa in the opening match of the 2019 tournament. Olga Garcia, who was scoring goals for fun for Atletico Madrid in the 2018/2019 season will be one of the women to watch in Jorge Vilda’s team and we predict that she is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
Form South Africa
South Africa were producing fine showings at the 2018 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations and, as a result, they booked their place at the World Cup finals. However, the Banyana Banyana are seen as underdogs in Group B, but one thing is for sure, Desiree Ellis’ troops are going to leave their hearts on the field in every single game at their first ever major tournament. South Africa are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in their opener against Spain, but seeing that they have been struggling at the back in 2019, we do not believe that they are going to keep a clean sheet in the Stade Oceane clash. The Banyana Banyana failed to win previous nine games in all competitions.

Spain vs South Africa | Odds and Predictions
Spain are more of a team than South Africa. La Roja have been in a much better form than the Banyana Banyana in 2019 and it is no surprise home win is priced no more than 1.18. The African side, on the other hand, are 15.00 to make a miracle in Le Havre on Saturday afternoon. Betting odds for draw are 6.50.
Expert Betting Tip
Spain want to make a flying start to their 2019 World Cup campaign and they are regarded as hot favourites to emerge triumphant in the Stade Oceane showdown. La Roja will not have a better chance than this to record their first ever triumph at the major tournament and we predict that they are going to give fans some cheer on Saturday afternoon. Desiree Ellis’ were struggling in warm-up games and the lack of experience at the showpiece tournaments is likely to prove to be the biggest problem for the underdogs in their opener.
