Germany v Norway Preview, Women’s 2013 European Championship, Wednesday 17th July 2013

Germany sit on top of group B coming into this match against 2nd place Norway who are only below on goal difference, after the Germans placed 3 passed bottom of the table Iceland who have done okay this year with grabbing at least a point which is already better than 4 years ago. Either way both teams look set to progress into the next round unless the Netherlands pull off a shock hammering of Iceland and Germany score a few past Norway which will be tough.

With the poor result of a draw with Iceland in the past, Norway look set to up a few gears after beating Holland with an unconvincing 1 – 0 win, but now they meet the current holders in their last group stage match and will have to play for a win with knowing that the Netherlands could take 2nd place and progress if they were to win 3 – 0 against Iceland. Again it all depends on ifs and buts but group B’s final matches do look to bring a lot of potential excitement to the competition.

Germany v Norway Team News

Germany Team News:

Coach Silvia Neid will be much happier knowing they have finally opened their scoring account at the expense of Iceland by hammering them 3 goals to nil with Okoyini Da Mbabi scoring a 2nd half brace and Lena Lotzen opening the scoring on 24 minutes as Germany played through a flawless first half. With conceding no goals to date goalkeeper and Germany captain Angerer must be happy with knowing her team are on track after only needing 1 point to secure a place into next round.

Norway Team News:

Norway looked troubled against the Netherlands in their last match, with experience having to show the young how its done. With Solveig Gulbrandsen coming out of retirement after a 3 year break it was her who had to lead by example and show the young Norway squad how to do it. With the 32 year old’s rising shot hitting the net half way through the 2nd half they found themselves lucky that the Netherlands failed to play like they did against Germany with such an impressive performance.

Regardless of the two teams close to equal head to head stats it is the Germans who have dominated women’s football as of late and even with a majority of the team out injured they still have a very talented squad to take them to the final. Now the pressure is on Norway here knowing that a loss could open the doors for Holland to progress if they actually manage to start scoring which they have struggled with so far.

So my bet would go on Germany to win here, and as usual I will always have a cheeky bet placed on something with higher odds just for fun. My choices are below.
