Argentina did not have a good opener in their campaign as they were beaten during their first game in the groups. They faced Italy in their opener, where they suffered a 1-0 loss, due to their underwhelming performance. On their second game, they were held into a 2-2 draw against South Africa, a hard-earned goals for them. In fact, it was a comeback draw for Argentina, courtesy of the second-half goals from Sophia Braun, and Romina Nunez. However, since they are still winless in the contest, which puts them at the bottom of their group. With just one point, Argentina still have a chance for the next round, but they need to ensure a win here. Nonetheless, Argentina needs to work harder for them to win in this important match.

Unfortunately for Argentina, they will be without Miriam Mayorga, as she needs to serve suspension. She received two booking for their first two group matches, thus her one-game suspension. With that, Julieta Cruz will take her role, along with Aldana Cometti in central defense. Nunez on the other hand could be recalled here.

Sweden is currently the only team qualified in the round-of-16 in their group, as they have won their first two group matches. They opened their campaign with a 2-1 comeback win against South Africa, giving them confidence. Moreover, on their second game, they really dominated that match, winning against Italy in a 5-0 score line. On that match, four of Sweden’s squad got on the scoresheet, which just shows the talent they have. Despite having a guaranteed spot in the last 16, Sweden are still aiming for a win or at least a draw here. A single point would confirm Sweden as the winners of their group, but they are still aiming for the maximum points. Their results in the group is not surprising though, as they are ranked by FIFA as the third in the latest rankings.

There might be small changes for their squad coming into this match, aiming to secure the top spot. Despite some changes, Rolfo is likely to retain her spot here, considering her performance.
