Spain vs. England 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final Odds and Preview

By Jeff Stinger

Co-hosts Australia extended their FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign following a dramatic shootout victory versus France, beating Les Bleus 7-6 on penalties. That followed a 2-0 victory against Denmark in the Round of 16, also after leading Group B. Meanwhile, the Lionesses reached this stage of the tournament after sending home Colombia, 2-1. England aims to make their first appearance in the final and prepare to face a roaring crowd at Stadium Australia in Sydney, with a majority of the spectators rooting for Australia.

The two sides already shared the pitch this year after a goal each from Sam Kerr and Charlotte Grant that ended England’s 30-match unbeaten streak in April’s friendly, as the Matildas closed with a comfortable 2-0 victory. Nonetheless, the stakes are higher this time around as both sides seek their best-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup finish moving forward.

Why is Spain a safe bet to win?

Salma Paralluelo may be the best thing to happen to Spain in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Despite winning championships in domestic competitions, this is the first time we’ve seen the forward make her mark in the international soccer space. Now before she turns 20, Paralluelo gets a shot at a World Cup title after earning an Under-20 World Cup title in 2018.

Spain, along with Paralluelo, sent home a few heavyweights on their path to the Final. The knockout stage saw them produce a comfortable 5-1 victory over Switzerland. This succeeded in a tough 2-1 win over the Netherlands in the Quarterfinal. Although the scoreline was close versus Sweden, the Spanish side did look comfortable against the ladies in Blue and Yellow for a 2-1 win.

This is La Roja’s third tournament appearance and they already look primed for a strong finish on Sunday. The team will fight for the most coveted prize in international soccer and the squad’s contributions have been stellar from start to finish. Ultimately, all eyes are on Paralluelo this time, with Spain’s most passionate supporters hoping she finds the back of the net once more in the country’s defining moments in the Finals.

Why is England a safe bet to win?

England’s trajectory to the Final was burdened by injuries. Team captain Leah Williamson and starters Beth Mead and Fran Kirby missed games, taking out the core side of the European Championship-winning squad. But, the team’s depth allowed new names to shine such as Lauren Hemp, Alessia Russo, and midfield rising star Lauren James–who is about to return from suspension.

This is England’s first-ever chance at a World Cup title after riding a wave of assured moments and unexpected stars coming to light. Despite several moments in this competition when the Lionesses could have folded and given up, head coach Sarina Wiegman remained focused and confident in her team and their goals. It worked out in the long run and players stepped up in big moments to fuel their trip to the World Cup Finals.

Alessia Russo showcased her talent against Colombia and co-hosts Australia. Ella Toone scored in place of James against the aforementioned. The duo of Lauren Hemp and Chloe Kelly chipped in to book their ticket to Sunday’s championship clash. Having the support of a passionate soccer-loving country behind them as well as having leading scorer James back for the game bodes well for a side that has thrived without the 21-year-old.

If England plays its cards right and maintains its strong defensive presence led by Millie Bright, we might just see this side triumph at the final whistle.

Spain vs. England Betting Prediction

Both sides have been astounding in the knockout phase and stood strong on uneven ground. England has yet to lose a match in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, while Spain has only dropped the ball once in the group stage. The pair should be at their peak in this final, and that sets up well for both soccer fans and bettors.

England has the better overall squad on paper. Their defensive efforts also present a better track record in the tournament. Spain has been vulnerable against counterattacks multiple times, and that’s where England tends to excel. Meanwhile, the other side of the coin sees a team entering their first Women’s World Cup final. Spain also features a stacked squad that includes Real Madrid’s Olga Carmona, who delivered a dramatic late winner for her country to mark a momentous moment for Los Blancos.

Ultimately, the margins are narrow between the two teams and should deliver action-packed moments across 90 minutes or beyond.
