England Women vs. Czech Republic Women Betting Tips: Lucy Bronze to sparkle on 100th cap
England extended their superb unbeaten run under manager Sarina Wiegman to 23 matches last Friday following a statement 2-1 win over World Champions USA. The Lionesses, who have won 21 of those games, will now face Czech Republic in Brighton on Tuesday night.
Goals from Lauren Hemp and Georgia Stanway sealed the victory over in front of more than 76,000 fans at Wembley as they condemned their opponents to their first defeat in 22 matches. The result will give the European Champions even more confidence ahead of next summer’s 2023 World Cup for which they are priced at 4/1, behind favourites the USA.
However, before the Lionesses can start dreaming of more glory, they must continue to build momentum with a win over the Czech Republic, which will be screened live on ITV 1 at 8pm.
Red-hot 1/33 favourites England are enjoying a 15 game winning streak right now and should be too strong for the Czech Republic at The Amex, a stadium they enjoyed immense success at in the Euros; hammering Norway 8-0 in the group stages; then coming from behind to beat Spain 2-1 in the quarter-finals. However, they can’t afford to underestimate a Czech side that are unbeaten in three matches and have held the USA and the Netherlands to draws within the last year. Still, the visitors are a huge price at 22/1 to stun the hosts, while a draw is 11/1.
England Women vs Czech Republic Women Tips
Priced at just 1/33 to win for the sixteenth time in a row, there's no value to be squeezed out in the outright market, however a 'No' in the 'Both Teams To Score' market appeals at 17/20 with Paddy Power.
While the Czechs have been banging in the goals recently - 16 in their last three games - you can't really compare the defences of Cyprus, Belarus, and Hungary to that of England. Earlier this year they hit blanks against the likes of New Zealand and Iceland.
Meanwhile, the defensively-resolute Lionesses have conceded just six goals in 23 matches under boss Wiegman, keeping a whopping 17 clean sheets in the process.
Both teams not to score and over 2.5 goals could also be of interest at 17/10.
Many of England's main attacking threats, such as Beth Mead, Ella Toone, and Chloe Kelly are all short-priced in the anytime goalscorer market.
I do, however, like the look of right-back Lucy Bronze to score at 7/2 with Paddy Power, in what will be a landmark night for the Barcelona star as she'll receive her 100th England cap.
Bronze has scored 11 goals for her country, including twice in the summer months in the 5-1 friendly thumping of the Netherlands and the 4-0 semi-final rout of Sweden.
