Japan vs Sweden Women Tips

Japan Women have been brilliant at the World Cup, with the side quickly establishing themselves as the team to watch at the competition.

Sweden Women secured the result of the World Cup so far as they ended the domination of the USA by winning on penalties in the Round of 16. 

  • Japan have won all four of their World Cup matches 
  • Japan have won their four games with an aggregate score of 14-1
  • Sweden are unbeaten at the World Cup, winning three matches in 90 minutes and winning one game via penalties 
  • Sweden have kept three clean sheets at the tournament 

Head to Head

Sweden secured a stunning 3-1 win over Japan when the two sides last met in 2021, with this their second in a row over their opponents. In their last 10, Sweden have won three wins, Japan have five wins and there have been two draws. 

Japan Women Form 

Japan Women have been outstanding at the 2023 World Cup, with comfortable wins over Zambia, Costa Rica, Spain and Norway leading them into the quarter-finals.

Their 4-0 win over Spain was particularly impressive as they completely outplayed their opponents. This victory was their third in a row without conceding a goal. While they were breached by Norway in the Round of 16, they still managed to secure a very comfortable 3-1 win. 

While Sweden looked good defensively against the USA, they were dominated, and I believe that a Japanese side in fine scoring form will not miss all of the chances the USA failed to make the most out of. 

Sweden Women Form 

Sweden have been good at the World Cup, with three wins inside 90 minutes and a victory over the USA on penalties in the Round of 16. 

Their 5-0 win over Italy in their second group game was particularly impressive, but they struggled to create opportunities against a USA side that were far better than any side they played in the group. 

The worry for Sweden here is that they had to ride their luck against the USA as their opponents were poor in front of goal. Meanwhile, Japan have been ruthless, and if Sweden give them chances, they will likely take them. 


I am backing Japan to run out as comfortable winners in this one as they secure a win to nil.
