Spain vs Sweden Women Tips


Spain Women arrive for their World Cup semi-final on the back of a battling 2-1 win over the Netherlands that saw them pushed all the way by their opponents.

Sweden Women were also forced to fight hard for their place in the last four as they downed in-form Japan in a thrilling 2-1 win. 

  • Spain have won four matches at the World Cup (L1) 
  • The Spanish have kept two clean sheets in five games 
  • Sweden have knocked out the USA and Japan in their last two games 
  • Sweden have come out victorious in all of their World Cup matches when including wins on penalties (W5)

Head to Head


The two sides have only met twice before, with Sweden winning back in 1997 and the other game ending in a 1-1 draw back in 2022. 

Spain Women Form 


Spain Women have been inconsistent with regard to their results at the World Cup, with big wins following stunning defeats and then very tight victories. 

Their opening games against Costa Rica and Zambia ended 3-0 and 5-0 respectively before they were humbled 4-0 by Japan. They bounced back from this loss with a supreme 5-1 win over Switzerland before they were given a proper workout in their 2-1 extra-time win over the Netherlands. 

Spain are clearly an excellent team, but they have a soft underbelly defensively that can be exploited. Japan put them to their sword when they played and it will be worrying for Spain that Sweden were able to down the Japanese 2-1 in their quarter-final match. 

Sweden Women Form 


Sweden Women have been brilliant at the 2023 World Cup, with the European side able to knock out some heavyweight opponents. 

Wins over South Africa, Italy and Argentina saw the Swedish progress from a tricky group before they were paired with the USA in the Round of 16. Not to be denied, Sweden rode their luck before securing the win on penalties to eliminate the reigning champions. 

The World Cup's in-form side in Japan lay in wait in the quarter-finals, but they could not beat the Swedish either, with the side going from strength to strength as this tournament has gone on. Could Sweden be on the cusp of a stunning World Cup triumph? 

Verdict

While Spain may be slight favourites, I am backing Sweden to secure yet another huge scalp as they move into the final of the World Cup.
