Tip Reasoning

They were close; they pushed the best side in the world all the way, but ultimately, the Lionesses didn’t quite have enough to reach the final. Much of the same can be said for Sweden, who lost in extra-time against the Dutch. After disappointing semi-final defeats, can either side rally and finish the tournament on a high?

The way in which this pair went about their business in the semi-finals was different; England created plenty and were involved in an exciting game, a game where they easily matched their opponents in terms of creativity, while Sweden’s game against the Dutch was somewhat one-paced and lacking in attacking quality, though the Swedes were no worse than their opponents. Despite different approaches, both England and Sweden come into this game off the back of unfortunate defeats.

Despite losing, the Lionesses could leave Lyon with their heads held high on Wednesday evening, as they showed plenty of passion, desire and determination. They simply lacked the slightest bit of quality when it mattered most, though with the pressure off, Phil Neville’s women should be capable of doing much better. Having delivered lots of pleasing attacking play at this tournament in general, England ought to do some damage against the Swedes on Saturday.

Sweden will also be looking to threaten from an offensive point of view after they struggled to get going in the semi-final. Their 120-minute effort against the Dutch wasn’t overly inspiring, so it’s not too difficult to see why the Swedes aren’t fancied in the betting, though prior to the semi-final, they looked useful going forward. Without the pressure of trying to reach a final, the Scandinavians could easily return to doing well in the final third.

From a betting point of view, ‘Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score’ stands out as a viable option. The fact that both teams come into this game without much pressure should allow their respective attacks to adopt a more care-free approach, which should result in a less cagey, more free-flowing affair. After all, prior to the semi-finals, both teams did well offensively, as they came through the first two knockout rounds averaging 2.38 and 1.6 expected goals for.
