Group F of the Women's World Cup gets underway on Tuesday evening and our tipster makes the case for opposing a high-scoring clash at Roazhon Park

Chile will make their Women's World Cup debut when they take on Sweden in Rennes on Tuesday evening.

The South Americans are rank 500/1 (501.0) outsiders for the tournament according to bet365 with their opposition expected to reach the knockout stages and available at 25/1 (26.0) to go all the way.

Latest Odds

Jose Letelier's side are 18/1 (19.0) shots to win their maiden World Cup game. Preparations have been far from ideal though, the underdogs are without a victory since a 3-2 win over Australia in November 2018 - nine games ago.

Sweden rounded their pre-tournament friendlies off with back-to-back wins over South Korea and Austria. bet365 are just 1/6 (1.18) to come out on top here while the draw is 11/2 (6.50).

Team News

If Chile are to make a significant impact on this tournament, it could be in large part to their captain Christiane Endler. The Paris Saint-Germain goalkepeer could be in for a busy few games according to the bookmakers.

Peter Gerhardsson has a wealth of experience to call upon. No fewer than six players have been capped over 100 times for the national side including 34-year-old Caroline Seger, who scored twice in the qualifying campaign.

Preview

While Sweden are undoubtedly the better team in Rennes, it's tough to back them at such short prices. It's just 4/9 (1.44) that the Scandanvians win without conceding while a victory by at least three goals is 11/10 (2.10) with bet365.

Neither team inspire a huge amount of confidence in the final third and given Chile will be targeting their group stage meeting with Thailand as the best chance to secure some valuable points, they may opt to take a defensive approach in their opening encounter.

Predictions

Sweden are rarely prolific and opposing goals looks to be the best option for this Group F opener. Only once in their last 10 matches in all competitions have Gerhardsson’s side scored more than twice and goal backers could be left disappointing once more in Rennes.

Chile Women v Sweden Women Betting Preview

Chile have regularly failed to score since qualifying, netting in just four of their last nine outings and will likely have their work cut out once more.

"No" on both teams to score is unappealing at 2/7 (1.29) but under 2.5 goals is 6/5 (2.20) worth considering for a small wager. Sweden could well settle for a low-scoring victory if they get in front while Chile know that they have a more important game to come and will want to avoid a heavy defeat if possible.

Odds correct at the time of publish. Please gamble responsibly.
