Swedes and Dutch on verge of knockouts

England expected to fare strongly

There are two more games scheduled in Group C at the women’s European Championships as both Sweden (15/2 Euro 2022 Outright) and the Netherlands (12/1) look to book their place in the knockout stages of the competition.

Sunday’s action at Leigh Sports Village sees second take on third, with Sweden facing Portugal at 17:00 (Sweden 3/10, Draw 9/2, Portugal 8/1 – Match Betting).

Sweden need just one point to clinch their place in the next round, while a win for Portugal may still not be enough for them to progress.

Peter Gerhardsson’s side have picked up four points so far, while Portugal are still looking for their first win in the competition.

Portugal have struggled defensively in both of their games so far, and Gerhardsson will hope Stina Blackstenius will be able to exploit that after a strong showing last time out.

The other match takes place at  Bramall Lane with Switzerland taking on the Netherlands.

Like Portugal, Switzerland are aiming for their first win in Group C, while the Dutch are topping the group over Sweden courtesy of goals scored, with a further point needed to ensure their qualification (Switzerland 15/2, Draw 4/1, Netherlands 1/3 – Match Betting).

Switzerland have never reached the European Championship knockout rounds, and that is a trend that is likely to continue, with three points separating them and Sunday’s opponents.

For Switzerland to qualify, they need to clinch all three points on Sunday and hope Sweden can avoid defeat to Portugal.

Dutch duo Jackie Groenen and Vivianne Miedema are hoping to return for Sunday’s battle, having missed the 3-2 success over Portugal after testing positive for Covid-19.
