It’s not a summer without a major international football tournament and UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 is almost here with the action getting underway on Wednesday. And, to celebrate the big kick-off, Paddy’s giving everyone who backs an outright top goal scorer to the tune of £10 or more a FREE £2 bet every time they net.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

You can’t say fairer than that. And, to help you get the best bang for your buck, we’ve enlisted the clever folk at ValueBetSpotter to give us the low down on some of the key runners and riders to be the top scorer at Euro 2022.

Lauren Hemp

Lauren Hemp has emerged as a key component to England’s hopes of winning this year’s Euros. She scored 20 goals in 36 games for Manchester City last season, contributing a further 10 assists. Taking a look into her stats in the WSL last season, she started 20 games, scoring 10.

The City star came into really exciting form in the closing stages of the season, scoring 10 goals in nine games for club and country. She has scored seven goals in her last five England starts (albeit four of which came in the 20-0 demolition against Latvia in November).

Hemp’s WSL shooting data last season

  • Games: 22
  • Starts: 20
  • Goals: 10
  • Shots: 62
  • Shots on target: 29
  • Minutes per goal: 173

 

Ellen White

The reason Hemp’s odds are so good is ultimately down England’s all-time top scorer, Ellen White. However, her statistics last season were far less impressive despite sharing the same dressing room as Hemp for both club and country. White could be a doubt to feature in England’s earlier fixtures, after only recovering from Covid-19 this week, though.

White’s WSL shooting data last season

  • Games: 22
  • Starts: 13
  • Goals: 4
  • Shots: 43
  • Shots on target: 15
  • Minutes per goal: 305

Stina Blackstenius

Similarly to Hemp, there’s a lot of hype and expectation around Stina Blackstenius of Sweden ahead of the tournament. For context, Sweden are many people’s dark horse to win the tournament, and look certain to qualify for the knockout stages after being drawn in the ‘easiest’ group in the tournament.

Sweden share Group C with the Netherlands, Switzerland and Portugal. The toughest tie in this group will be the Netherlands, who still sit as favourites to win the group despite a recent 3-1 defeat against France, and a 5-1 drubbing by England just over a week ago.

Blackstenius will play a key role for a strong Sweden side and has been in impressive goal-scoring form for both club and country and her price looks like an exciting value bet. Having joined Arsenal in January this year, she hit the ground running with six goals in just seven WSL starts. Prior to joining Arsenal, she had an exceptional goal-scoring record for Swedish club side BK Hacken, where she averaged just shy of a goal-per-game, scoring 17 goals in 21 starts.

Blackstenius’ league record since January 2021

  • Games: 32
  • Starts: 28
  • Goals: 23
  • Shots (WSL): 17
  • Shots on target (WSL): 7
  • Minutes per goal: 108
