WOMEN'S EURO 2022

STAR PREVIEW Fri: Sweden Women v Belgium Women

Sweden Women and Belgium Women meet on Friday evening at Leigh Sports Village with both nations vying for a spot in the last-four of EURO 2022.

Sweden – the highest-ranked side at the tournament – are aiming for their sixth semi-final appearance in their last eight European Championship tournaments.

Peter Gerhardsson’s side made it through their group with a 1-1 draw against the Netherlands and then two victories over Switzerland and Portugal. They are currently 5/1 to win the tournament with starsports.bet and have been handed a favourable quarter-final draw.

Jonna Andersson was brought into the side for Sweden’s emphatic victory over Portugal and is expected to retain her place for this quarter-final clash.

Belgium have already massively exceeded expectations by reaching this stage of the competition but, now they’ve got as far as the quarter-finals, will want to carry on their fairytale even longer.

After drawing their first two matches, Belgium needed a victory over Italy in their final group game and – thanks to a goal from Tinne de Caigny – got exactly that and leapfrogged Iceland into second-place in the process.

Belgium boss Ives Serneels could well name an unchanged XI for this clash with the 49-year-old keen to keep the side’s momentum going.

Sweden must not underestimate their opponents here, but we are expecting them to come through the challenge and get the victory they need to get through to the semi-final. We’re backing them to win to nil at evens.
