The hosts are William Hill’s 10/3 (4.33) favourites to win the tournament for the first time and will be hoping to get off to a good start in the capital.
The same firm have an offer whereby anyone placing a £10 outright winner bet (or £5 each-way) prior to the action getting underway will be entitled to a £10 free bet to use on another bet during the competition. T&Cs apply.
Corinne Diacre’s side are just 1/10 (1.10) to win their sixth game in a row in front of their own fans, highlighting the gulf in class between them and their Asian opponents.
Talismanic striker Eugenie Le Sommer has been used sparingly by Diacre this year but should start for France, who have a wealth of attacking talent to choose from.
Chelsea midfielder Ji So-yun has the most caps and most goals in the history of South Korea Women and will start in Paris.
Anything other than a France win looks extremely unlikely in this clash considering they have won 13 of their last 14 matches, dating back to the 2018 SheBelieves Cup.
Les Bleues are strong at the back, having kept nine clean sheets in those 14 fixtures, whilst their attack has impressed too with 48 goals during that span.
A victory without conceding for France is priced at just 1/2 (1.50) though and it is worth looking at the goalscorers market to find value instead.
Tips and Prediction
The Paris Saint-Germain forward scored three goals in France’s two warm-up games, despite playing only a combined 99 minutes, taking her total for 2019 to six international goals in seven games.
Two of those half-dozen came against the USA and another against Japan - the two countries who contested the 2015 World Cup final - making 7/5 (2.40) look a great price on Diani finding the net again in Paris on Friday night.
