Team News

Vivianne Miedema notched twice against Cameroon last time out and became the all-time top scorer for the Netherlands women's team.

Christine Sinclair is expected to lead the line for Canada once again, although she has yet to make her mark in this competition. bet365 offer 8/5 (2.60) that Sinclair scores in Reims.

Preview

With the match odds looking particularly difficult to call with any certainty, turning to the other markets on offer with bet365 could be a profitable call.

Both these teams have been able to rely on solid defensive displays so far. While New Zealand and Cameroon aren't the most accomplished sides at the World Cup, just one goal conceded in the four games the pair have contested so far will be an encouraging sign.

"No" in the both teams to score market is available at Evens (2.0) while the under 2.5 goals quote of 4/5 (1.80) carries plenty of appeal for what could be a cagey contest.

Predictions

Both teams came into this tournament with an impressive set of results. Indeed, Canada have now conceded just once in 10 games while Netherlands have kept four clean sheets in their previous five outings.

With two staunch defences facing off and plenty still to play for, opposing goals looks the way to go in Reims.

Under 2.5 goals would have landed in eight of Canada's last 10 international outings and a repeat at 4/5 (1.80) in the best selection for this World Cup clash.
