NEW ZEALAND V SWEDEN
New Zealand will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-6 Women's Olympics loss in their previous game against United States.
Fixtures involving New Zealand have proved to be absorbing ones lately with plenty of scoring being the norm. Over their past six clashes, the sum total of 20 goals have been scored for both sides combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 5 of them accredited to The Football Ferns.
Sweden head into the clash after a 4-2 Women's Olympics win with the downing of Australia in their last fixture.
During their six previous matches, Sweden have had reason to celebrate scoring a total of 12 times - earning them a goals scored per game average of 2.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
CANADA V GREAT BRITAIN
Canada, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-2 Women's Olympics triumph against Chile.
Canada have hit the back of the net a sum total of 7 times in their prior six outings. The tally of goals that have been scored against them in those fixtures is 5.
Great Britain will come into the clash following on from a 0-1 Women's Olympics win versus Japan in their last fixture.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
CHILE V JAPAN
Chile will be looking for an improved result here after the 1-2 Women's Olympics loss in their previous game against Canada.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Great Britain in Women's Olympics competition, Japan will be aiming to make amends here.
It is worth noting that Japan have been starved of goals over their previous six clashes, contributing the disappointing return of only 4. In those matches, Nadeshiko Japan have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 7. Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, of course.
Prediction: Both teams to score
