AUSTRALIA V SWEDEN
Australia are hoping to win again following the 3-4 Women's Olympics victory against Great Britain.
Matches featuring Australia have proved to be exciting ones recently with plenty of scoring being a real hallmark. Over their past six games, the sum total of 23 goals have been recorded for both sides combined (at an average of 3.83 goals per game) with 13 of them accredited to Australia.
Sweden will go into this match after a 3-1 Women's Olympics win versus Japan in their last match.
Sweden have converted 14 times throughout their latest six matches. The total of goals that have been scored against them during those same clashes adds up to 5.
Prediction: Both teams to score
UNITED STATES V MEXICO
United States, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following a 0-1 Gold Cup victory over Qatar.
United States haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, finding the back of the net in each and every one of their last 6 matches.
They have hit an aggregate of 14 during that period and have conceded a total of 1. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, however.
Mexico will come into the meeting following on from a 2-1 Gold Cup win over Canada in their most recent game.
A run of resolute showings by the Mexico defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 1 from their last 6 clashes overall. In that period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 13.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
SAN LORENZO V BANFIELD
San Lorenzo will be looking for another win after a 0-2 Superliga success over Boca Juniors.
In that game, San Lorenzo had 41% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 2 on target. For San Lorenzo, the scorers were Gino Peruzzi (31') and Néstor Ortigoza (48'). On the other side, Boca Juniors had 12 shots on goal with 0 on target.
Their latest results show that huge efforts have been put in by the San Lorenzo defence. San Lorenzo have been mean at the back, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous 6 matches standing at 4. Still, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend will be maintained here in this game.
Coming into this meeting, San Lorenzo have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
Banfield will come into the game following on from a 0-1 Superliga win versus Unión de Santa Fe in their most recent game.
In that match, Banfield had 55% possession and 24 shots on goal with 7 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Banfield was Juan Manuel Cruz (81'). On the other side, Unión de Santa Fe had 13 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target.
A series of steadfast displays from the Banfield defence has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 2 from their past 6 clashes overall. In that period, their forwards have scored 5.
Heading into this fixture, Banfield are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
