France and the United States, two nations that survived a penalty-kick shootout in the last round, meet Wednesday in the semifinals of the Women’s World Cup. This match features the two favorites to win the tournament now. The U.S. is FIFA’s top-ranked team in the world, while France ranks seventh. Odds.

This should be a very entertaining match. France is the faster team, while the U.S. is stronger and more physical. The Americans have been to the World Cup semifinals five times, but have lost three of those matches, including the past two. But ultimately, this matchup will be decided between the pipes, and the UNITED STATES will win on the back of its superior goaltender, Hope Solo. The past three U.S. games have finished OVER the total, and Wednesday’s match should be no different. Scores.

Although they had to outlast England with penalty kicks, the French thoroughly dominated their quarterfinal game, out-shooting England 33 to 7. France had 11 shots on goal, while the English mustered only three. France also won the time of possession and had 16 corner kicks to England’s seven. The French have scored eight times in their four matches in this World Cup, with six different goal scorers. Marie-Laure Delie leads her team with two goals and one assist. On defense, France has been pretty solid. Other than a four-goal barrage by Germany, the French have allowed just one goal in their other three matches. Starting goalie Celine Deville was suspended for the quarterfinal win over England and was replaced by Berangere Sapowicz, who only had to make two saves for the entire match. This included the penalty kicks too, as England’s two misses were a shot wide and an attempt that hit the crossbar. Deville is expected to start in goal.

The U.S. is now a perfect 6-0 in the World Cup quarterfinals after its thrilling 2-2 (5-3 PK) win over Brazil on Sunday. Abby Wambach scored in the 122nd minute of action off a beautiful cross from Megan Rapinoe in what was the last play of extra time. The Americans played the final 55 minutes with only 10 players after Rachel Buehler received a red card for fouling Brazil forward Marta in the penalty box. Buehler will not be available on Wednesday due to the carding. Although the Americans did not score for nearly 120 consecutive minutes against Brazil (own goal in 2nd minute), they have eight goals in the tournament, which is tied with France for second-most. Six different U.S. women have scored goals, with Wambach the only player with two tallies. The Americans and French are tied for the most shots on goal in the World Cup (37), but USA has 38 shots wide, compared to 26 for France. The U.S. defense has been a question mark in the past two matches, allowing two goals apiece to Sweden and Brazil. But goalie Hope Solo is hardly to blame, as two of those goals were penalty kicks and another was a deflected free kick that she had no chance in saving. Las Vegas odds.
