Olympics women’s football winner odds: Brazil still have gold in sight
Guide to the quarter-final matches and prospects of gold
We have reached the quarter-final stages at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and we are taking a look at the Olympics women’s football winner odds.
After a couple of notable shocks in the group phase, we re-assess Friday’s last-eight clashes as the teams bid for a place in the final in the National Stadium, Tokyo, Japan, on August 6.
Canada v Brazil match odds
Canada opened their account with a 1-1 draw to hosts Japan before going on to their only win of the group stage against Chile.
They almost earned a second victory against Great Britain but a late goal from Caroline Weir meant Canada had to settle for another share of the spoils.
Brazil started with a 5-0 thumping of China before a 3-3 draw against the Dutch. A 1-0 win over Zambia saw them progress to the last eight and they are Evens to beat Canada.
Marta and Formiga are the driving force in Pia Sundhage’s side, who are 13/2 to take gold.
Great Britain v Australia match odds
Sweden v Japan match odds
The Swedes stunned USA 3-0 in their opening game, then came from behind to beat Australia before going on to win comfortably against bottom-of-the-group New Zealand.
They have great depth in the squad with the front three of Fridolina Rolfo, Stina Blackstenius and Sofia Jakobsson almost impossible to defend.
Japan are technically good in midfield but their attacking limitations have been exposed and they only just found a way to beat Costa Rica to progress.
Netherlands v USA
Odds-on to become the first nation to follow a World Cup title with Olympic gold before their opening-game thumping by Sweden, the USA have drifted to 13/8.
They hit back with a 6-1 thrashing of New Zealand before a dreary draw with Australia put them through to the knockout phase.
USA are narrow 27/10 favourites to beat a Dutch side that has scored 21 goals across their three group games.
The Netherlands’ Olympics women’s football winner odds of 6/1 to take gold will contract significantly should they win this last-eight clash.
