Why Bet on Australia versus Sweden
Although England beat Australia 3-1, the Aussie’s didn’t play a bad match. Australia yielded possession 58% to 42%.
Also, England took just 3 more shots than Australia, 15 to 12. When it came to shots on goal, the English had 5 and Australia had 4.
If Australia plays against Sweden the way they did versus Denmark and France, for sure, Australia can win the Women’s World Cup third place match.

Why Bet on Sweden versus Australia
For most of their match against Spain in the World Cup semifinals, it appeared the Swedes were going to accomplish their goal.
Sweden knew their best shot of beating El Roja was to elongate the match. The Swedes were prepared to force a regulation draw, not give up a goal in the extra period, and then try to steal a victory via penalty kicks, just like Sweden did against the United States.
But in the eighty-first minute, Spain scored. Sweden then scored in the eighty-eighth minute to keep the dream alive. However, Spain scored about 60 seconds later, which sent Sweden to the third place match.
Sweden is great at employing whatever strategy is required to win a match, which makes them ultra-tough on Saturday.
Sweden Last 5
- L – 2-1 vs Spain
- W – 2-1 vs Japan
- W – 0-0 vs United States
- W – 0-2 vs Argentina
- W – 5-0 vs Italy

Australia vs Sweden Final Betting Analysis
This should be an excellent game. Both teams have played well enough to warrant a look to win the third place trophy.
But although Sweden can win, the slight underdog should be more tired than Australia. Sweden beat two of the best teams at the World Cup, the United States and Japan, in back-to-back matches.
Not only that, but Sweden was all out versus Spain. So the Swedes will have played three tough matches in a row while Australia destroyed Denmark and then played France tough.
Australia’s loss to England is a concern, but the Aussie’s let the game get away from them. Also, Brisbane Stadium will be rocking in support of Australia. The host nation ends their Women’s World Cup run with a third place match victory.
