Italy Women News and Form

Italy have been so strong at the World Cup so far. They banked an opening 2-1 win over Australia and then didn’t take their foot off the gas as they soundly beat Jamaica 5-0. They have had two different players scored hat tricks at this tournament. Italy failed to make it three wins from three as they lost 1-0 against Brazil in their final group stage match. That was despite them having had plenty of chances to put the South Americans away. Italy conceded from the penalty spot. Still, that is four wins in their last five games now from the Italians who are obviously on the up in the women’s game.

Italy 1-0 Half Time Score
5/1

William Hill

In each of their last four wins, Italy have scored at least two goals. They perhaps do need to tighten up a little in defence as they have conceded in four of their last five games played (the one clean sheet in their victory over Jamaica). Italy had won two of their previous six World Cup games, but now with this strong start to this tournament in having reached the round of sixteen and with a great chance of progressing, it shows how far they have come. They look really good with their passing and movement and are a really fluent side when they pour forward.

 

Key-Facts – Italy Women v China Women

  • Italy have scored at least two goals in each of their last four wins
  • The Chinese have won one of their last seven games

China Women News and Form

China were in a difficult group having to take on Germany and Spain. They were always going to be underdogs to get a top-two spot. They lost against Germany at the start of their campaign but then picked up a 1-0 success over South Africa. So that left them with a clash against Spain in their final group stage match, knowing that a draw would get them through as one of the best third-placed finishers. The game ended 0-0, Spain happy enough with that as it got them second place in the group.

China are struggling for form. Their victory over South Africa is their only win in their last seven fixtures (D2 L4). The interesting thing about their defeats is that run was that they were against some of the stronger European nations like Norway and France. With their failure to beat Germany and Spain, will they again fall short when they meet Italy? China’s win over South Africa is their only victory in a World Cup fixture in their last four played. Four years ago, China won their round of sixteen match, taking a 1-0 success over Cameroon.

Italy Women v China Women Predictions

Italy to win: there have been some really strong performances from Italy in this World Cup so far. If they continue that way then they should easily get the better of China in this round of 16 tie. China rarely bare their teeth in attack and so Italy to win to nil is a good proposition.
