USA vs Thailand | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
United States of America will be aiming to make a flying start to their 2019 Women’s World Cup campaign when they take on Thailand at Stade Auguste-Delaune II on Tuesday evening. The title holders want to continue where they left at the 2015 tournament, but it remains to be seen if the Thai girls are capable of making a miracle in Rennes.
Match Preview USA vs Thailand
David faces Goliath in Group F. United States of America have been impressive in 2019, whilst Thailand’s defence looks pretty shaky. Anyhow, an entertaining is on the cards and fans are likely to see a lively contest at Stade Auguste-Delaune II.
United States of America did well to win the 2015 World Cup trophy, with the team beating Japan in the final of the tournament in Canada. The Stars and Stripes are eager to repeat the success, but winning the title is much easier than defending it. USA were scoring goals for fun in warm-up games and, as a result, they are considered hot favourites to win their World Cup opener. Alex Morgan, who has netted 101 goals for the national team to date, will be the woman to watch in Jillian Ellis’ team and we predict that the opposition defenders will have their work cut out for them when facing the 29-year-old attacker. USA aim to get their job done in Group F as soon as possible and the reigning champions are likely to go all guns blazing at Thailand in their opener.
Four years ago Thailand participated at the World Cup finals for the first time ever, but they failed to advance to the knockout stages of the tournament in Canada. The Asian side aim to cross one hurdle more the upcoming tournament in France, but seeing that they have been grouped with the likes of USA, Sweden and Chile, they have slim chances of making it to the last 16. The Chaba Kaew have been struggling at the back of late and given the attacking potential of the USA national team, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of spoiling the title holders’ party at Stade Auguste-Delaune II. Thailand are eyeing their second victory at the World Cup finals, but they should not be looking for a win in the clash against the No. 1 favourites to win the trophy.
USA vs Thailand | Latest Team News
The likes of McCall Zerboni, Casey Short and Andi Sulivan have surprisingly been left out of the squad, but coach Jillian Ellis has no fresh injury worries ahead of the Thailand game. Coach Jill Ellis has named 12 footballers from the team that won the 2015 World Cup trophy, alongside 11 debutants. Thailand key player Kanjana Sungngoen made the cut and the 32-year-old forward is likely to lead the line for the Asian team.
Head to Head USA vs Thailand
The two teams have never met before at the Women’s World Cup finals, but three years ago United States of America crushed Thailand 9-0 in a friendly match. However, it remains to be seen if the history is going to repeat itself.
USA vs Thailand | Odds and Predictions
USA are considered hot favourites to win both the Thailand game and the World Cup trophy. The Stars and Stripes are only 1.03 to emerge triumphant in the opening match of the tournament in France, whilst away win is priced 34.00. Thailand are 15.00 to hold the reigning champions to a draw in Tuesday’s clash.
Expert Betting Tip
United States of America aim to build on the performances in warm-up games and seeing that they are determined to clinch top position in Group F, only a win counts for Jillian Ellis’ women this time out. The title holders crushed 9-0 in a friendly back in 2016 and seeing that Alex Morgan is likely to lead the line for USA against Thailand, we are positive that the Stars and Stripes are going to roll over Nuengrutai Srathongvian’s charges in Rennes. The Chaba Kaew are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Tuesday’s match, but preventing USA superstars from finding the net is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, anything but a routine home win will be a major surprise.
