Sweden vs Canada: who will become the Olympic champions?
On August 6, Sweden women's national football team faces the Canadians in the final of the Tokyo Olympics. Who will become the Olympic champions? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The first step of Sweden towards the Olympic final was the victory in the qualification for the European Championship. Then, in Tokyo, the Swedish team had a powerful and somewhat unexpected start: they defeated the USA, who were considered the main tournament favourites, with a score of 3:0. In the second round, they earned another three points, defeating Australia (4:2), and in the last round beat New Zealand (2: 0). Sweden finished on top of their group. In the playoffs, the Yellow-blues eliminated the hosts of the Olympics and won over the Matildas for the second time at the tournament.
Five years ago at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the Canadian team won their second set of bronze medals. In Japan, the North Americans started with a draw with the hosts of the tournament (1:1), then the Canadians beat Chile (2:1). The most difficult was the last game of the group stage against Great Britain, which ended in another draw (1:1). Canada progressed to the playoffs from second place. The Reds beat Brazil in a penalty shootout, and then faced the United States in the semifinals. The outcome of the game was decided by a penalty scored by Fleming in the 74th minute.

In 4 out of the last 5 games of Sweden, goals were scored in both halves.
