Switzerland Women to claim second win

Switzerland Women to claim second win

Switzerland Women are aiming to claim their second straight win in the contest when they go against Norway Women. Switzerland had a 2-0 win against the Philippines on their opener, while Norway are coming from a 1-0 loss against New Zealand. Their results in the opener would bring a momentum in the rest of their campaign. While Switzerland would have a good momentum, Norway cannot say the same considering their result. This will be the fifth meeting between Switzerland and Norway, with their first meeting being recorded in 2013. From those meetings, Switzerland holds more advantage, winning twice while Norway have won only once. The meeting between these two teams is on July 25, 2023, at 4:00 PM (GMT+8).

Following their win against the Philippines in the opener, Switzerland is now sitting at the top of their group stage with three points. That comfortable 2-0 win against the Philippines made them enjoy a positive start coming into this match. It was Ramona Bachmann who opened the scoring for the Swiss squad, followed by Seraina Piubel’s goal. Moreover, that win for Switzerland ended their winless run across all contests. Coming into this match, Switzerland is aiming for another win to strengthen their chances for the next round. Having been able to end their winless streak, they not have the renewed confidence in their campaign. Moreover, this game is also crucial for Switzerland, as they could have an easy access to round-of-16. If they win in this match, and the Philippines lost to New Zealand, they will already enter the last 16.

Following their satisfying loss on their last game, there might be no changes to be made for the starters for Switzerland. Lia Walti will continue to captain Switzerland, while Noelle Maritz and Bachmann needs to be cautious, as they are one booking away from suspension.

Norway Women

Women's World Cup: Norway

Norway did not have a smooth start in the World Cup as their opponents, as they had a narrow 1-0 loss against New Zealand. Since they kicked off their campaign in the wrong foot, they do not have the confidence to come into this game. After their opponents scored on their last game, they were no longer able to comeback,. Moreover, Norway failed to fins their way to the game, having only one attempt on the target. Now that they are looking to overturn their results, they are looking to work harder to return to winning ways. They can no longer afford to lose here, as it will decrease their chance of entering the next round. Across all competitions, this squad failed to keep a clean sheet in their last three matches, a run they need to end. From their last 10 games across all contests, they only won twice, which is why they want to finally end this unfortunate run.

Vilde Boe Risa could land a place as a starter after being a substitute against New Zealand, while Ada Hegerberg will continue to captain her squad.

Prediction:

Switzerland Women (1.5)
Odds: -0.88
