Netherlands Women News and Form

Usually in games like this, with both already having qualified, it can peter out into a non-event. However, if the defending champions USA win their Group, then the winner of this Group will avoid both the USA and hosts France in the knockout bracket until the Final. So that’s an incentive to push one for the win. The Netherlands beat Cameroon 3-1 in their second group match, adding to their 1-0 win over New Zealand. They only need to play out a draw in this game to win the group because of having scored more than Canada so far. The Netherlands are on a five-match winning streak, with just the one goal conceded in that run of fixtures.

So they are in pretty good shape and will always have a chance with their top line of Vivianne Miedema, Lieke Martens and Shanice van der Sande. The Dutch haven’t quite been as fluent and clinical in the final third as expected to be honest. Maybe there is more to come. Miedema, who scored twice against Cameroon is the 13/10 anytime goalscorer favourite for this game* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on June 18th, 2019 at 5:39 p.m.). The Netherlands are undefeated in their last six games and have suffered just two defeats in their last thirteen (D1 L2). This won’t be an easy game against Canada.

Canada Women News and Form

Canada continue to tick along in some good form currently. In the tournament so far they have taken a 1-0 win over Cameroon and a 2-0 success over New Zealand. That has just extended their brilliant run of form which goes back to their participation in the Algarve Cup which started at the end of February. From the start of that tournament, Canada are W7 D2. In that run of games, their defence has been rock solid, conceding just one goal. They have not conceded in any of their last four.

The Canucks look very together and very organised. They don’t look a team who particularly care about flair, but they work hard and do all the simple stuff very well. It’s a great balance that Canada always seems to have. Christine Sinclair, their record scorer has yet to break her duck at the tournament. She has scored in each of her previous three World Cup campaigns. Sinclair still needs four more goals to be the top international goalscorer in the women’s game. Canada have to win to beat the Netherlands to the top spot. They may push for it.

Netherlands Women v Canada Women Predictions

Canada to win: There is a temptation to look at the draw. However, the Netherlands are more likely to try and rest players ahead of the knockouts than Canada are. The Canadians are no pushover and may go out and upset the reigning champions. They have to win to get the top spot.
