2012 Olympics Medal Predictions: Sweden vs. France Tips & Picks 8/3/12

Olympics Women’s Soccer Sweden vs. France: Swedes To Pull Off Upset Of French: The women’s quarterfinals on the soccer Olympics schedule continues on Friday morning at Hampden Park, where one of the hotter teams in this tournament, France is going to take on a Swedish side that has really been struggling on both sides of the pitch. Both of these teams are incredibly talented though, and there is no doubt whatsoever that this is a battle on the soccer betting lines that you aren’t going to want to miss out on.

Following an opening match win against South Africa, it really wasn’t a great jaunt through Group F for the Swedes. They did end up topping the group because of that overwhelming 4-1 victory over the African side, but draws in successive matches against Canada and Japan really didn’t do a heck of a lot for the team. Meanwhile, France did pretty much exactly what it was supposed to do, taking care of business against North Korea and Colombia in Group G, but falling to the United States. Still, that game against the Stars and Stripes was one that turned heads right at the outset of this tournament, and the fact that Les Bleus were up 2-0 in that match before conceding four definitely shows that this is a team that has a heck of a lot of talent and can be quite dangerous.

It’s going to be interesting to see whether the Swedes are going to be able to really man the fort against the French attack. Japan is normally a defensive side that doesn’t show a heck of a lot of attack, so that nil-nil final score really shouldn’t be all that surprising. However, we definitely wonder whether the three goals allowed to the combination of Canada and South Africa is a sign of things to come for Sweden. Hedvig Lindahl has already allowed three goals, and she just hasn’t looked all that sharp. On the other end of the pitch, there are six goals to be spoken of, but the two against Canada are really the only two that mattered all that much. Lotta Schelin has clearly been the best attacker of the bunch up front, accounting for eight shots in this tournament, three of which have hit the target, and two of which found the back of the net. It seems like it is time to see Caroline Seger, who has six shots, get on the stat sheet, and she might be one to watch if she can get into the French back with some open space on Friday.

With a whopping 55 shots taken in just three matches, France has the most attempts at target in the Olympics thus far. The combination of Marie-Laure Delie and Louisa Necib up front has been an attacking force for sure, as both have 11 strikes. Necib has yet to score, but she has had a heck of a lot to do in the success of both Delie and Elodie Thomas, both of which have a pair of goals up front. A fourth striker, Gaetane Thiney also has eight shots, though only one, a goal, has come at net. At the back, the defense has had a tendency of being a little thin, especially when you consider the fact that two of the women on the back line have goals already in this tournament. For now, Sarah Bouhaddi has maintained herself for the most part in net, as the only match that Les Bleus conceded a goal in thus far came against the USA when four found the twine.

Sweden vs. France Match Preview & Analysis: In the end, we have to remember that it was only a year ago that these two teams met in the Third Place Game in the World Cup. Sweden was able to get that one by a goal. We think that there is a massive overreaction to the fact that the French have played so well in the group stage, especially with that early advantage against the USA. However in the end, we just don’t know if the level of competition that France faced was nearly as good as that of the Swedes in the first round, taking on Canada and Japan along with South Africa. Go with Sweden to pull off the upset and to get into the semifinals of the Olympics Women’s Soccer Tournament.
