Odds, picks & predictions
Moneyline pick: Spain -20000
This match looks like it’ll be a comfortable win for Spain, who absolutely dominated Costa Rica in their group stage opener. La Roja logged a staggering 46 shots (12 on target) while controlling 80% of possession in their first match while holding the Costa Ricans to just one single shot on the night. Credit to Costa Rican goalkeeper Daniela Solera, who made 10 saves to keep the score from running away from her side even further.
Zambia’s World Cup debut didn’t go quite as planned, as they were steamrolled by Japan with a 5-0 final score. The Japanese side logged 25 shots (11 on target) while holding Zamba to zero shots overall throughout the night.
While the Copper Queens will look to keep Spain from scoring as many as Japan did on Matchday 1, there’s virtually no chance that Zambia will be able to pull off a win over Alexia Putellas and the rest of the Spain squad.
