Chile vs Sweden | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Chile will be aiming to impress on their World Cup debut when they face Sweden at Roazhon Park on Tuesday evening. Las Chicas de Rojo were producing fine performances at the 2018 Copa America Femenina, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the clash against the Blagult, who aim to go all the way at the showpiece tournament in France.
Match Preview Chile vs Sweden
Chile were struggling in warm-up game ahead of the World Cup finals, but they can’t wait for the tournament in France to begin. Sweden were scoring goals for fun in the qualifiers and they surely want to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Peter Gerhardsson is doing a great job with the Swedish national football, but he must warn his players against the complacency.
As previously mentioned, Chile proved their worth at the 2018 Copa America Femenina, with the team clinching silver medal at the tournament in their homeland. As a result, las Chicas de Rojo booked their place at the World Cup finals for the first time in the national team’s history and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field on their debut at the major tournament against Sweden. Jose Letelier’s charges, though, were struggling to find their best form in friendly games earlier in 2019 and it has to be noted that they were outclassed by Netherlands 7-0 in April. PSG goalkeeper Christiane Endler is undisputedly the team’s key player, but Sevilla midfielder Francisca Lara, who has netted 9 goals in 22 appearances for the national team to date, could play an important role in Jose Letelier’s team at the 2019 Women’s World Cup as well.
Back in 2003 Sweden did remarkably well to make it to the final of the World Cup in USA, but they failed to impress at the last major tournament (2015), with the team suffering elimination in the last 16. The Blagult aim to record a good result at the upcoming World Cup in France, but United States of America are regarded as No. 1 favourites to clinch top position in Group F. Coach Peter Gerhardsson has a number of high-profile footballers to choose from, but a woman to watch in the away team will be captain Caroline Seger, who has netted 27 goals for the national team. Sweden failed to win previous four game at the World Cup finals, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course as Chile kick off the tournament with the lack of experience.
Chile vs Sweden | Latest Team News
The likes of Barbara Santibanez (attacker), Fernanda Pinilla (defender) and Ambar Soruco (defender) have been left out of the squad. Marjorie Hernandez failed to make the cut as well. Sweden coach Peter Gerhardsson will count on experienced players against Chile. The likes of Linda Sembrant, Nilla Fischer, Hedvig Lindahl, Kosovare Asslani, Caroline Seger and Sofia Jakobsson are all likely to start.
Head to Head Chile vs Sweden
This will be the first meeting between Chile and Sweden in a competitive match. Las Chicas de Rojo were crushed by European side Netherlands 7-0 earlier this year, whilst Sweden have not faced a South American team since 2018, when they square off against Brazil at the 2016 Olympics. Back then the Blagult defeated Marta and Co. on penalties.
Chile vs Sweden | Odds and Predictions
Given the experience of Swedish players, it is no surprise the Blagult are 1.17 to pick up all three points from the opening game of their 2019 World Cup campaign. Chile, on the other hand, are 19.00 to upset the European side on their World Cup debut.
Expert Betting Tip
Sweden and Chile have never met before in a competitive game, but bookies see Peter Gerhardsson’s women as favourites to win the Roazhon Park clash. Swedish footballers know each other very well and the team is well balanced. Chile, on the other hand, have never played a game at the major tournament, which is the main reason why we predict that the European team will kick off their World Cup campaign in style. The Blagult are likely to roll over las Chicas de Rojo at the start of the showpiece tournament in France.
