Spain vs Sweden: A Preview, Predictions, Odds, and Betting Tips

The 2023 Women’s World Cup is reaching its climax, with Spain and Sweden set to meet in the semi-final on Tuesday, August 15 at 9am BST/ 4am ET/ 6pm AEST, Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand

Spain is the favorite to win the match, but Sweden will be no pushovers. The two teams have met twice in the past year, with Spain winning both times. However, Sweden has been improving steadily and is now one of the best teams in the world.

Here is a preview of the match, along with predictions, odds, and betting tips:


Spain is the most attacking team in the tournament, with a free-flowing style of play that has seen them score 15 goals in five games. They are led by Ballon d’Or winner Alexia Putellas, who is one of the best players in the world.

Sweden is a more defensive team, but they are also very good at counter-attacking. They are led by striker Stina Blackstenius and Amanda IIestedt, who has scored four goals in the tournament.

The match is likely to be close, but Spain have enough quality to win. However, Sweden will be determined to cause an upset as they won all of their World Cup matches of this edition and reach the final.

Spain vs Sweden Prediction

We predict Spain 1-2 Sweden. Sweden have shown their versatility against USA and Japan, and with a strong defense, we believe they will find ways to neutralize Spain’s attack and secure another victory to qualify for the Women’s World Cup final.

Spain vs Sweden Squad News

Salma Paralluelo was the hero of Spain’s quarter-final win, coming off the bench to score the winning goal, and she may have done enough to deserve to start.

Goalkeeper Catalina Coll is likely to get the nod, and it’ll be interesting to see if Barcelona’s Ballon d’Or holder Alexis Putellas will be kept on the bench again after starting there in the last two games.

Sweden, on the other hand, don’t seem to have any fresh injury worries right now.
