Germany kicked off their tournament securing the biggest victory of the first round against Morocco while Colombia pulled off the upset by beating South Korea. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and Women’s World Cup 2023 live betting.
Germany dominated in their 6-0 win over Morocco to emphatically kick off their tournament. Alexandra Popp, one of the best players in the tournament, starred in the first half. Popp was the joint-top scorer at last year’s Euro Championship and she found the net twice versus Morocco. Popp, a striker, headed home twice in the first half against Morocco.
If Germany secures another victory against a direct rival in this match, it would head into the final match with peace of mind, as its ticket to the next phase would be practically assured. Therefore, it is expected that the team will come out with a strong performance since the very start of the match and we will continue to include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Sitting second in the FIFA Rankings, it would be a catastrophe for the European powerhouse to miss out on the knockouts, but with some patchy recent form coming into this clash, few know what to expect from them. If there’s one thing we can expect though, Germany is one of the best attacking sides so we should enjoy many entertaining games.
Colombia: Profitable underdogs
Colombia defeated South Korea 2-0 as underdogs for their second World Cup win. Colombia was indeed superior for most of the game and Linda Caicedo is definitely a player to watch so if you’re betting online you should back her to score more goals.
Clearly, the task ahead will not be easy as the team faces one of the most dominant countries in women’s soccer. Colombia’s focus might be more defensive, hoping to secure a point. Even a defeat will not end their knock-out stage hopes because they will play Morocco in the final match of the group.
With coach Nelson Abadia serving the second of a two-match touchline ban here, Angelo Marsiglia will again be on the touchline for Colombia. It is worth mentioning that Colombia has scored at least one goal in its last 15 matches. In fact, this team has already faced France and Italy this year, earning results such as 5-2 and 2-1, respectively. They lost but they scored against some of Europe’s heavyweights.
Germany vs Colombia Head-to-Head
Colombia have scored exactly twice in three of those four games, and they may again need a couple of goals to avoid defeat here given they’ve conceded an average of 1.78 goals per game in their nine historical mutual encounters against European opposition. Germany’s Alexandra Popp netted a double against Morocco, meaning she’s scored at least twice in five of her last seven international scoring appearances. Germany and Colombia have never before played each other. The 6-0 win against Morocco was the largest margin of victory at the tournament so far and it marked a 20th straight group stage game for Germany without a defeat.

Germany vs Colombia Picks and Prediction
Germany enter this clash as heavy favorites being priced at -440 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at three.
Germany are a scoring machine and they never stop attacking. They looked amazing in their first match and we expect them to do it again on Sunday against Colombia. Yes, the visitors are a better side but the difference in quality is still big. Colombia has the necessary weapons to find the back of the net so we definitely expect this clash to go over in terms of goals. Germany should easily cover here and even score at least three goals on their own.
