The Selecao are heavy favourites to win their World Cup opener but our tipster thinks they will have to wait for goals when they face the Reggae Girlz

Brazil are aiming to kick-off their Women’s World Cup campaign in style when they play Jamaica in Grenoble on Sunday afternoon.

The Selecao have lost their last nine matches but will hope to get back on track against the Reggae Girlz, who are the lowest-ranked team in the competition at 53rd.

Latest Odds

Unsurprisingly, Brazil are just 1/33 (1.03) with William Hill to take the points at the Stade des Alpes, as they did when they won this fixture 5-0 at the 2007 Pan American games.

Jamaica are a 25/1 (26.0) shot to win their first ever World Cup game, having qualified by coming third in the 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship. The draw trades at 11/1 (12.0).

Team News

Legendary striker Marta is playing in her fifth World Cup and as the all-time top scorer in the competition, will certainly be aiming to add to her 15 goals. She is just 1/2 (1.50) to score anytime here.

Jamaica are led by 22-year-old Khadija “Bunny” Shaw, who scored 19 goals across her country’s qualifying route to secure their place in France.

Preview

Anything other than victory for Brazil would be a massive shock but Vadao’s side do not come into the tournament in any kind of form, having not won a game since beating Japan 2-1 last July.

Whilst most of those losses have come against top tier sides, defeats in their last two games to Spain and Scotland are a concern and Jamaica will feel they can at least restrict their opponents.

Under 3.5 Brazil goals is priced at 8/11 (1.73) with William Hill and that could prove popular, but there is perhaps a better way to approach this game.

Tips and Predictions

Backing Brazil’s highest-scoring to be the second at 21/20 (2.05) looks great value for this World Cup fixture in Grenoble.

Jamaica are likely to go out looking to avoid defeat and with Vadao’s women having netted just three first half goals in their last 11 matches, it could be a subdued opening period at the Stade des Alpes.

Brazil highest-scoring half: Second at 21/20 (2.05) for a 1pt stake with William Hill
