Australia Women vs Brazil Women Match Preview
Australia will be concerned about their run of form, but they entered the World Cup as favourites to win Group C and can get back on track by beating Brazil.
The Matildas have now lost four games in a row – three friendlies and, surprisingly, their World Cup opener 2-1 to Italy after Sam Kerr had given them the lead, with a decisive double from Barbara Bonansea being completed in the fifth minute of stoppage time.
It means the pressure is now on Australia to get the better of Brazil, who began with a 3-0 triumph against Jamaica in which Cristiane bagged a hat-trick.
However, it would be wise not to get too carried away by that result because Jamaica are very much one of the makeweights in France and the margin of victory was not unexpected.
One thing we can anticipate in Montpellier is this contest being close – that has always been the case when these countries have met at the previous three World Cups, with Brazil just having had the edge (see stats above).
However, in recent times it’s Australia who have been dominating with four straight wins against Brazil by a 14-5 aggregate.
This really is a must-win game for Ante Milicic’s side after that initial defeat, especially with Italy playing Jamaica next, and we will back Australia to revive their hopes of reaching a World Cup semi-final for the first time.
