Spain Women v France Women: Tips, Predictions & Odds

The Women's Nations League reaches its climax in Seville on Wednesday when World Cup winners Spain will be hoping to get their hands on a second senior title by beating France.

However, they will have to defy history as they have never beaten Les Bleues in 13 previous meetings, losing 10 of those encounters.

The fact they are hot favourites to win the title despite that record shows how far they have come in the last few years as their success at youth level has been subsequently reflected at youth level.

But France, who will be looking to build momentum ahead of hosting this summer's Olympics, will feel they have a strong chance of winning after they claimed a 2-1 success over Germany in their semi-final on Friday.

Spain v France betting tips and predictions

Over 2.5 goals @ 4/5

Both semi-finals ended with more than two goals - Spain booked their place in the final with a 3-0 success over the Netherlands - and there looks a decent chance that Wednesday's showdown could also be an open affair.

Their win over the Dutch, which came courtesy of goals from Jenni Hermoso, Aitana Bonmati and Ona Batlle, was the sixth occasion in seven Nations League matches that Spain have scored at least three goals.

It is little surprise that, with their tally of 23 in those games, the world champions are the highest scorers in the competition and all but three of their last 15 matches have featured at least three goals.

That run includes their 1-0 win over England in the World Cup final, in which they missed a penalty, so it would be no surprise to see Montse Tome's team adopt an attacking style.

France have been less prolific in the Nations League, scoring 11 goals in their seven games, but they should take confidence from the fact they did not lose any of those encounters.

They will have to be positive against the Spaniards and both Sweden and Italy demonstrated in the group matches that the world champions can be got at it if you adopt a positive attitude, so it would not be a surprise if those who backed over 2.5 goals were able to celebrate upon the final whistle.

Salma Paralluelo to score at any time @ 12/5

While Spain have scored 23 goals in their Nations League campaign, it is quite something that 15 players have got themselves on the scoresheet.

Real Madrid's Athenea del Castillo leads the way with five goals while Bonmati scored her third goal in the win over the Dutch, but there is a strong case to look a little further down the list when searching for an anytime goalscorer bet.

One player who stands out in this regard is Salma Paralluelo, who looks set to lead the line again for Spain.

The striker plays her club football for Barcelona, who dominate the scene in Spain and look set to storm their way to another La Liga Feminina title this season, so her confidence should be high after netting 11 league goals this term.

She demonstrated she can be a player for the big occasion by scoring key goals in both the World Cup quarter-finals against the Netherlands and in the semis against Sweden and looks a decent bet to score at 12/5.

Spain to win 2-1 @ 9/1

France have won 10 of their 13 games against Spain, including each of their last seven meetings, but their opponents are a lot stronger than the last time they met in 2019.

So Les Bleues look to be up against it, but a win over Germany, courtesy of goals from Kadidiatou Diani and Sakina Karchaoui, will have been the perfect tonic and shows they are still a force to be reckoned with.

Despite a few close shaves, they have never won a trophy and should adopt a positive attitude, which will contribute to an open game.

Spain look to hold the edge but Herve Renard's side can contribute, so those looking for a correct score selection may consider a 2-1 home win in Seville.
