Canada are looking to start their Women’s World Cup campaign with a win when they face Cameroon at Stade de la Mosson on Monday night.
A quarter-final exit four years ago on home soil was perhaps a disappointing result and as the fifth-ranked team in the world, they will be hoping for an even better showing this time around.
Christine Sinclair leads the line for Canada as she looks to add to her stunning record of 181 goals in 282 games for her country.
For Cameroon, Gaelle Enganamouit scored three goals in the previous World Cup and is certainly the one to watch in France as she looks to make her mark again.
Canada could scarcely have wished for a better fixture to start with considering their opponents are ranked 46th in the latest world rankings.
Cameroon have also been impressive in recent matches, having finished third in the Africa Women Cup of Nations last year to qualify for the finals, but the quality of opponent faced is considerably lower than they'll be up against here.
Tips and Predictions
Indeed, Alain Djeumfa’s outfit are the second-highest African team in the world behind 38th-ranked Nigeria, but have played just two matches against non-continental sides since the start of 2018.
One of those was a 6-0 defeat to France whilst the other saw them lose 4-0 to Spain - and a similar result could be on the cards in Montpellier on Monday.
Canada can be backed at 4/5 (1.80) to score in both halves that could prove popular, but the 7/5 (2.40) shot on them to beat the -2 handicap mark looks an excellent way to get onside with Heiner-Moller’s side.
This bet requires a victory by three or more goals to be settled as a winner.
