Chile Women vs Sweden Women Predictions
Chile have never had the strongest team in Women’s Football but this vintage is set to make history by becoming the first ever team from the nation to take part in the World Cup. La Roja Femenina have never managed to qualify for the Women’s World Cup or the Olympics before, and they’ve only once managed to make it beyond the semi-final stage of the Copa America Femenina too, just last year.
But since that final defeat as hosts of that tournament last year, José Letelier’s side have seriously struggled for consistency and they head to France for this competition on the back of some torrid form. With no victory in their last nine outings, a run that has included thumping defeats against both Australia and the Netherlands, confidence must be low, making a win for the South Americans look unlikely here at 22/1 with Unibet.
Sweden Women meanwhile have a much better record in their history in major tournaments. Whilst they have never managed to get their hands on the most coveted trophy of all, the World Cup, before, Blagult have reached the semi-final stage on no fewer than three occasions and they’ve been even better in the European Championships, lifting that trophy back in 1984 and reaching the final four on seven occasions since.
Although it’s fair to say that this isn’t the greatest Sweden outfit of the last 20 or 30 years, they are functional and tough to break down and they come into the tournament after returning to winning form in their final two warm-up friendlies, overcoming both Austria and South Korea to boost their confidence in time for this opening fixture. The European side are expected to win said fixture too at odds of 1/6 with Bet365.
We’re backing Sweden to win this one, but we don’t think it will be the hammering that has been expected from some quarters. This Sweden side, whilst strong and difficult to break down, doesn’t possess a real out and out goalscorer and that could hold them back if they’re looking to rack up the goals. We do think that Blagult will take all three points but we also think less than four goals will be scored – combining the two for odds of 8/11 with PaddyPower.
One player who could be worth backing to get on the scoresheet though is Swedish defender Nilla Fischer. The 34 year old is one of the more prolific defenders on the international football scene, with 23 goals for her country to her name. The Vfl Wolfsburg star will be a threat from set pieces as Blagult look to find a way through here and we fancy her to get on the scoresheet at reasonable odds of 11/2 with William Hill.
