Sweden Women News and Form

The Swedes collected a 2-0 victory over Chile at the start of this World Cup campaign. They had to be patient in that game, both of their goals coming after the 80th minute. Sweden were up and running easier in front of goal in their second match as they beat Thailand 5-1. Realistically though Sweden should have had five goals in the first half alone. But that is all behind them and this game against the USA is where the competition really starts for them now. They have to take on the defending champions for top spot.

2-3 Goals Exact

Sweden have won their last four games, with just one goal conceded in that sequence (the one against Thailand). You always expect Sweden to be strong, physical and organised. However four years ago at the 2015 World Cup, they only managed to draw each of their three games. They still made it out of the group where they were beaten by Germany in the first knockout round. Incidentally one of their draws in that group stage campaign happened against the USA. Sweden look a little bit stronger this year. That draw against the USA in 2015 is the only time that Sweden have failed to score in their last nine World Cup games.

 

Key-Facts – Sweden Women v USA Women

  • The Swedes played out a 0-0 draw with USA at the last World Cup
  • USA have only been stopped winning by Sweden in their last 9 WWC games
  • The Americans are W8 D1 in their last nine World Cup games

 

USA Women News and Form

The Americans came firing out of the blocks as they came up with a 13-0 opening success over Thailand. In their second game, they managed a 3-0 success over Chile. Alex Morgan was the talk of the town in their opening game with her five-goal haul, but then she sat out their second game, the USA sensibility giving her a rest. Carli Lloyd was the headline grabber in their second game as she scored twice and missed a penalty in their success. Everything has been all too easy for them so far.

Americans are on an eight-match winning streak at the moment and they have scored at least three goals in each of their last seven. They are currently running on a seven-match streak without conceding a goal too. It is a ten-match unbeaten streak that the USA are on at the moment with a W8 D2 record from that. The two drawn games in that sequence of games were 2-2 results against England and Japan at this year’s SheBelievesCup. USWNT have now taken a W8 D1 record from their last nine World Cup fixtures. The only ones to have not lost against them in that sequence was Sweden.

Sweden Women v USA Women Predictions

USA to win: This will be a much tougher game for the USA but they are still worth backing to win. That will be the case even if they don’t bother sending out their strongest starting eleven. They are still likely to edge the Swedes. The USA to win by a one-goal margin.
