Sweden Women vs Belgium Women prediction & odds

Kick-off: 2000, 22/07/2022

Stadium: Leigh Sports Village


Sweden’s Euro 2022 quarter-final clash with Belgium looks a mismatch on paper and the Scandinavians are tipped to cruise through in Leigh.

The Blue and Yellow are ranked second in the world, while the Red Flames are down in 19th and competing at this level for the first time.

We’re snapping up 4.1 for the favourites to prevail by exactly two goals for our opening Sweden Women vs Belgium Women prediction.

Sweden Women Odds

Sweden have only twice failed to reach the European Championship semi-finals from 10 appearances and went into this event in fine form.

They finished third at the 2019 World Cup and were runners-up at the Olympics last year, only going down to Canada on penalties in the decider.

The Blue and Yellow were the better team in a 1-1 draw with Holland here, before edging out Switzerland 2-1.

Peter Gerhardsson’s side then made a real statement of intent by thrashing Portugal 5-0 to top the Group C table.

Player of the match Kosovare Asllani told UEFA: “I had fun and I feel like the entire team enjoyed playing football. We are feeling great.”

Asllani’s set-piece deliveries were a feature of that five-star display and Sweden’s physical presence is again expected to prove pivotal here.

Looking at the Sweden Women vs Belgium Women odds, we like 11.0 for the Scandinavians to oblige 3-1.

Belgium Women Odds

Belgium are competing at just their second major tournament, having bowed out at the group stage five years ago.

This time, the Red Flames came from behind to draw 1-1 with Iceland and then pushed highly-rated France hard in a 2-1 loss.

Tine De Caigny’s 49th-minute strike was the only goal of a tense closing contest in Group D against Italy.

The Azzurre applied plenty of pressure as they chased an equaliser, with Cristiana Girelli hitting the bar, but Belgium held on for a famous win.

“We were fighting until the end but I feel like we deserved this,” beamed defender Sari Kees. “It’s amazing, really.

“Italy are such a strong team but we just didn’t give up. We kept on going. In the end, that’s what made the difference.”

Head coach Ives Serneels hailed that as “a historic night for Belgian women’s football” but this could be where the fairytale run ends.

The Red Flames have scored in five straight Euros outings, though, going back to 2017.

Let’s add 2.5 for them to net just once again here to our Sweden Women vs Belgium Women betting tips.
