Jorge Vilda's side, though, have been handed a tough assignment in Group B alongside a well-fancied Germany side plus China and South Africa, who finished second in the 2018 Africa Women's Cup of Nations.
This is by far the most winnable of Spain's group games according to the bookmakers. 888Sport go just 1/9 (1.11) that they secure maximum points in Le Havre.
World Cup debutants South Africa will be captained by Janine van Wyk. The 32-year-old is the most capped player in the history of the national side.
Since losing to Nigeria on penalties in the final of the 2018 Women's AFCON, South Africa have failed to win any of their subsequent nine matches, including a thumping 7-2 defeat to Norway in their final warm-up clash.
With that in mind it's understandable to see Spain as such red-hot favourites, although they've rarely blown teams away. A 4-0 win over Cameroon is the only time they've covered a -2 handicap in 12 matches. A win by three or more goals is available at 21/20 (2.05) with 888Sport.
Tips and Predictions
With seemingly little value in the main match markets it could pay to take a small stakes longshot on a goalscorer selection.
Thembi Kgatlana was named African Women’s footballer of the year in 2018 and was the top scorer in that year’s AFCON with five strikes.
The 23-year-old sealed a move to Chinese side Beijing BG Phoenix after a largely unsuccessful spell with Houston Dash in NWSL. Having re-discovered her scoring touch in the last few months, Kgatlana could prove an interesting outsider to score anytime at 15/2 (8.50) with 888Sport.
