The Blue and Yellow will look to back up a shock rout of the USWNT with a similar result against the Matildas
Sweden will look to make it two Olympic wins from two at Tokyo 2020 as they face Australia, with leadership of Group G and a place in the quarter-finals at stake in Saitama.
The Blue and Yellow were silver medalists at Rio 2016 and got their campaign underway with a shock rout of the USWNT – but face another stern test in the form of the Matildas.

Team news & rosters
|Goalkeepers||Lindahl, Falk, Musovic|
|Defenders||Andersson, Kullberg, Glas, Eriksson, Ilestedt, Bjorn|
|Midfielders||Bennison, Hurtig, Asllani, Angeldal, Seger, Roddar|
|Forwards||Janogy, Jakobsson, Blackstenius, Schough, Rolfo, Anvegard, Blomqvist|
Having delivered a surprise demolition job on the USWNT, the Blue and Yellow may be loath to make any changes, meaning that Magdalena Eriksson may miss out again.
That means that Stina Blackstenius, after her opening brace, will keep her spot up front while Eriksson’s Chelsea team-mate, Jonna Andersson, will hold down the defence.
Predicted Sweden starting XI: Lindahl; Glas, Ilestedt, Bjorn, Andersson; Angeldal, Asllani, Seger; Jakobsson, Blackstenius, Rolfo.
|Goalkeepers||Williams, Micah, Arnold|
|Defenders||Polkinghorne, Catley, Carpenter, Kennedy, Nevin, Grant, Brock|
|Midfielders||Cooney-Cross, Luik, Logarzo, Kellond-Knight, Van Egmond, Yallop|
|Forwards||Kerr, Foord, Fowler, Gielnik, Raso, Simon|
Having run out as relatively comfortable victors against New Zealand thanks to two first-half goals, the Matildas will be looking to seal their place in the last eight too against their rivals.
Sam Kerr will certainly keep her place up front for such a crunch clash, but there could be space for Kyra Cooney-Cross to get a start after coming off the bench last time out.
Predicted Australia starting XI: Williams; Carpenter, Polkinghorne, Catley; Raso, Van Egmond, Luik, Cooney-Cross; Simon, Kerr, Foord.
