Germany's Women's World Cup campaign got off to a stuttering start. Despite being one of the fancied teams in France this summer, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's side laboured to a 1-0 win over China in their opening group game.
William Hill make Germany 4/5 (1.80) to make it back-to-back World Cup wins on Wednesday.
Germany were top scorers in the Uefa section of qualifying for this tournament and will hope for more cutting edge here.
Both coaches will be seeking significant improvements after lacklustre showings first time out. Rapid improvement may not be forthcoming though.
Voss-Tecklenburg has a relatively inexperienced side at her disposal and while they should grow in stature as the tournament progresses, it would be no surprise to see another slow start in this all-European affair.
Despite goals being on the agenda, it could pay to wait for the goalmouth action to begin.
Germany's last five games have seen 11 goals with eight of those being scored after half-time. Spain are no strangers to late strikes either, with 69.2 per cent of the goals in their last five outings coming in the second 45 minutes.
With these sides looking likely to battle it out for top spot in Group B, it would be no surprise to see another cagey opening.
William Hill are 19/20 (1.95) about the second half being the highest scoring and that looks a very solid option given the recent performances of both teams.
