Spain and Sweden to draw @ 11/5
Both teams enjoyed 2-1 wins in the quarter-finals and are now dreaming of going all the way for the first time.
Sweden are looking to reach the final for a second time after losing to Germany in the 2003 showpiece while this is already Spain’s best run at the Women’s World Cup.
La Roja needed extra-time to edge past the Netherlands on Friday while Sweden were good value for their victory despite a late rally by Japan.
Spain are favourites to progress and have impressed at the tournament so far, despite a 4-0 thrashing by Japan in the group stage, but Sweden look solid defensively and will be hard to break down.
There looks little to choose between the teams and we’re backing the opening semi-final to be drawn in normal time for the first of our Women’s World Cup 2023 predictions.
Australia to beat England @ 21/10
Australia have home advantage as co-hosts of the tournament and look good value as underdogs to end the Lionesses’ dreams.
The Matildas are 10th in FIFA’s global rankings, six places below England, but can boast they are the only team to have beaten the Lionesses since boss Sarina Wiegman took the helm in September 2021.
That victory came in April, when Sam Kerr and Charlotte Grant both scored at Brentford to snap Wiegman’s 30-game unbeaten streak as England manager with a 2-0 victory.
Star striker Kerr may not yet be fully fit due to a calf injury but her absence might have actually benefitted the Matildas in the long run, as others have stepped up to show they are not a one-woman team.
England have not been at their best so far and will once again be without the suspended Lauren James, so with most of the 75,000 crowd inside Stadium Australia roaring on the hosts, we’re backing an upset as the second of our Women’s World Cup 2023 predictions today.
