Norway will be hoping to guarantee their spot in the last 16 of the Women’s World Cup by beating South Korea in Reims on Monday night.
The Grasshoppers opened with a 3-0 win over Nigeria before losing 2-1 to hosts France, and will certainly fancy their chances of seeing off a Taegeuk Nangja side that have failed to find the net so far.
William Hill go 42/100 (1.42) that Norway win their second match of the tournament and reach the knockout stages for the seventh time in eight World Cups.

Norway only made one change for their second match with Karina Savik coming in for Lisa-Marie Karlseng Utland, with Utland likely to start this one after coming on as a substitute against France.
South Korea have no injuries but could look to change things up after their loss to Nigeria.
A pair of fairly toothless efforts going forward has doomed South Korea at the Women’s World Cup, with the Asian side not managing a single shot on target against France and failing to test Nigeria goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie.
Without a goal to their name they are hardly likely to have much confidence entering this game and shouldn’t trouble Norway’s defence too much.
The Scandinavians gave Nigeria precious few opportunities in their opening game and held France at bay for the first half, and there is little to suggest they won’t win comfortably here
Tips and Predictions
Five of their last six victories have been by two goals or more whilst both of South Korea’s losses at the Women’s World Cup have been by more than one strike.
