Netherlands Women vs Sweden Women Match Preview
Netherlands are favourites to reach the Women’s World Cup Final only four years after their debut in the tournament – at the expense of Sweden who were runners-up in 2003.
The Dutch only qualified for the first time to play in Canada in 2015, advancing to the first knockout round before losing to eventual finalists Japan, but they have been on an upward trajectory ever since.
Hosts of the 2017 European Championship, the Oranje lifted that trophy and have benefited from a favourable draw this summer in France as they won all of their three group matches and then took revenge on Japan before a 2-0 victory over Italy in the quarter-finals.
Sweden have faced more difficult opposition and while they lost 2-0 to reigning champions the United States in the round-robin stage, they caused a big upset when hitting back from a goal down to oust Germany, who had been favourites to reach the final, at the weekend.
There is little between these teams in the FIFA rankings and the Dutch do not have the home advantage this time that carried them to victory over Sweden in the Euros two years ago.
This is a match that looks tighter than the odds suggest and on that basis, there may well be some value in backing the Scandinavian side to prevail and set themselves up as underdogs for Sunday’s decider at the same venue.
