A place in the knockout stages of the FIFA Women's World Cup is up for grabs as the Super Falcons take on the Republic of Ireland on Monday morning. Which of these teams will be left standing after 90 minutes?

Prediction 1: Super Falcons to win

It's important to point out that the Republic of Ireland have lost two of two group matches so far. They've struggled to find their best form in recent months, winning just one of their last seven matches. As a matter of fact, Vera Pauw's girls are coming into this match on the back of three consecutive losses; they lost five of their last six games too.

In contrast, the Super Falcons have enjoyed some fine form lately; they are currently on a five-match unbeaten run, with four wins and a draw. Taking both teams' recent form into account, we are fairly confident that the Super Falcons will take all three points from this match.

Prediction 2: Super Falcons to Score First

For our next Ireland vs Nigeria Super Falcons prediction, let's explore the ‘first team to score' market. We've already established that the Super Falcons have no losses in their last five matches. It may also interest you to know that they tend to score first when they play. In fact, Randy Waldrum's girls opened the scoring in four of their last five matches.

On the other hand, the Republic of Ireland have struggled to find the back of the net recently; as they failed to score in five of their last seven matches. Due to their lack of goals, Vera Pauw's girls conceded first in five of their last six matches. On that note, the Super Falcons should draw first blood.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 total goals

Although the Republic of Ireland haven't particularly scored a lot of goals in recent months, their recent games have mostly been on the high-scoring side. We would like to point out that three of Ireland's last four games went above the 2.5 goal line, three of the Super Falcons' last four matches too. All things considered, we should expect at least three goals in today's match.

Nigeria Super Falcons vs Ireland head to head

The Super Falcons will go up against the Republic of Ireland for the first time today. On one hand, irrespective of the outcome of this match, Ireland have already been eliminated from this tournament. In contrast, the Super Falcons are currently at the top of the group table; they'll guarantee a place in the round of 16 if they don't lose this match. There's also a scenario where the Super Falcons lose and still qualify for the knockout stages.
