Australia vs Sweden Women's Olympic Soccer Tips


The Matildas are on the hunt for their first ever gold medal after defeating Team GB in the quarter finals. But have a tough ask as they square off against Sweden. 

Sweden will look to get redemption following their 2016 silver medal as they also have an eye on the coveted gold medal after beating host nation Japan in the quarter-final. 

Sweden are tipped to edge the Matildas and repeat their group stage win.

  • Australia have scored 8 goals in 4 matches
  • Australia's Sam Kerr has scored five goals in 4 matches
  • Sweden beat Australia 4-2 in the group stages
  • Sweden's Stina Blackstenius has scored 4 goals in 4 matches
  • Sweden were the only team not to play in extra time or a penalty shootout in the quarter finals 

Head-to-Head 


Australia and Sweden have already faced off against each other, when they met in the group stages. Sweden were victorious over the Matildas, winning 4-2. 

Australia Form 


Australia are on the verge of getting their first ever medal at the Olympics following a pulsating 4-3 win over the highly fancied Team GB in extra time.

Sam Kerr scored a double to take her tally to five goals in Tokyo.

The Matildas finished the group stages as the third best team in Group G following a mix bag of results. 

The Matildas began their group stage with a bang as they defeated Trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand 2-1 to get things off to a perfect start. Star striker Sam Kerr netted both goals. 

Any hopes of topping the group were quickly deflated as they went down to Sweden 4-2. 

Despite the defeat, a draw was enough to see Australia through to the quarterfinals. That’s exactly what happened when they held the United States to a 0-0 draw. 

Australia Squad and Team News


Goalkeepers: Lydia Williams, Teagan Micah

Star striker Sam Kerr is a doubt for the match due to fatigue and soreness following playing all of Matilda’s games in the Olympics. 

Sweden Form


Sweden are one of the in-form teams at the Olympics as they have not dropped a game in their campaign so far. 

They topped Group G as they won all three group games and throughout that time they scored nine goals - the most in the group. 

That included a 4-2 win over Australia.

The Swedes continued that form into the quarter-final where they defeated Japan 3-1.

Verdict

This is sure to grab Australia’s attention as all eyes will be on the Matildas after a gripping win the quarter final win.
 
However, the Matildas have played an extra 30 minutes compared to Sweden and with news that Sam Kerr is doubtful for the clash it could become costly.
 
The Matildas have shown heart, courage and dedication throughout the Olympics and can produce a result when needed, but Sweden have not put a foot wrong and have only conceded three goals so far.
