Tip Sweden W - USA W
The winner of this match will finish top of Group F in the Women's World Cup. Both the USA and Sweden have won their opening two games in this group and a draw will see the Americans finish top due to their massive goal difference. They currently have a goal difference of +16 thanks mainly to the record 13-0 win over Thailand in their opening fixture. Winning the group takes the victors into a last sixteen match against Spain, the runners-up would take on either Canada or the Netherlands so there is a fair bit to play for here. The USA have won their last eight internationals and only France have beaten them since July 2017. You have to go back even further for their last defeat in the finals of the Women's World Cup. That last loss was in 2011 and that was to Japan in a penalty shoot-out.
Sweden have so far beaten Chile 2-0 and Thailand 5-1. The first of those wins was a nervous affair with the deadlock not broken until the 83rd minute. Their year began with a disappointing Algarve Cup but since then they have won four games in a row but only one has been against a country ranked in the top 20. Go for the USA to win this match and top the group.
Key points Sweden W - USA W
The USA have won their last eight internationals.
The USA last lost a Women's World Cup match in 2011.

Conclusion Sweden W - USA W
The USA have again been in dominant form in this group and can beat Sweden to finish top. They have already scored 16 goals and have just one loss in the past two years. Sweden had to wait until the dying moments to get their win over Chile and had a poor Algarve Cup this year. The tip is for a USA win to clinch the group.
