All eyes will be on Eden Park as the Copper Queens from Zambia take on Spain in a FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 Group C fixture. While Spain will go through to the round of 16 with a victory today, the Copper Queens need all the points they can get. Which of these sides will reign supreme after 90 minutes?

Prediction 1: Spain to win both halves

The Copper Queens Zambia didn't look too good in their opening match against Japan; as they suffered a humiliating 5-0 loss to the former World champions. It may interest you to know that Zambia lost both halves in that match, they'll also have to do without first choice goalkeeper Catherine Musonda for today's game.

In contrast, Spain have put pretty much all of their recent opponents to the sword. They are currently on a seven-match winning streak; a stretch where they registered 30 goals, conceding just twice. Furthermore, the Spaniards won both halves in six of their last seven games; and considering Zambia's rootless performance against Japan, we are fairly confident that this will be another one-sided contest, with Spain winning both halves.

Prediction 2: One team to blank

Our next Spain vs Copper Queens Zambia prediction is on the BTTS market. We've already established that Zambia did not score any goals against Japan a few days ago; it's also worth mentioning that they did not register a single shot in 90 minutes.

On the other hand, the Spaniards have been able to rely on their defense lately; as they did not concede a single goal in their last five matches. All things considered, we shouldn't expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: At least three total goals

Although we don't expect both teams to get on the scoresheet, we believe that there will be at least three goals in today's game. For one, we pointed out that the Spaniards found the back of the net 30 times in their last seven matches alone. With that in mind, eight of their last nine matches went above the 2.5 goal line.

In like manner, despite the Copper Queens' recent struggles, they've also been involved in a few high-scoring matches lately; as seven of their last eight games featured at least three goals. That said, this will likely be a high-scoring affair.

Spain vs Zambia Copper Queens head to head

Spain and Zambia will meet for the first time today, which isn't much of a surprise considering the Copper Queens are playing in the FIFA Women's World Cup for the very first time.
