Sweden Women vs Canada Women Predictions
Sweden are one of a handful of teams that have always been a threat at the Women’s World Cup but have never managed to get their hands on the famous trophy. Blagult have reached the semi-finals on three occasions, advancing onto the final once back in 2003 and although they’ve tasted success in the UEFA Women’s Euro and the Algarve Cup, it’s the biggest accolade of all that they are craving in France this summer.
Peter Gerhardsson’s side started the campaign in terrific form too, picking up comfortable and confident wins in their opening two matches against Chile and Thailand to secure a route through to the knock-out stages. A lack of quality compared to the very top sides in the tournament was displayed by the 0-2 defeat to USA, but the Scandinavian side will still feel capable of winning this tie at odds of 47/20 with Unibet.
This is only the third time in their history that Canada have managed to make it out of the group stages at the Women’s World Cup. The second time occurred on home soil four years ago and the relative success of that tournament appears to have inspired the Canucks in the last few years and they now possess a side with a healthy blend of youthful exuberance and wily experience that could threaten some teams remaining in the tournament at the knock-out stages.
Like their Monday evening opponents, the North American side kicked-off the group stages with back-to-back wins before falling to defeat in their final game. Victories over Cameroon and New Zealand were hard-earned, narrow wins before Kenneth Heiner-Møller’s charges slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Netherlands to close the group out. Can they bounce back to winning form to head through to the quarter finals at 6/4 with Spreadex.
We’re anticipating a tightly-contested affair at PSG’s Parc des Princes ground here. The two teams are clearly evenly matched as we have seen from their performances in the group stages and tellingly, both sides prefer to remain as tight as possible at the back and take their chances when they arrive, which could lead to something of a stalemate here. We’re backing the game to go beyond the 90 minutes after a draw at 21/10 with Bet365.
In the group stages, Sweden were held 0-0 at half-time in their opening game with Chile before eventually battling through for the win. Canada meanwhile have not conceded in the first half at this tournament so far, whilst three of the four goals that they have scored have come in the second half of their fixtures. Given that we’re expecting a tight game anyway, it makes sense to back a goalless first half at 5/4 with Bet365.
