Australia vs Sweden live streaming: Preview
Who will reach the Gold Medal match with victory in Yokohama?
Arguably, Sweden are currently the favourites to win gold as they’re the only nation in this competition who’ve won four out of four.
In the group stages, Peter Gerhardsson’s side sent out a real statement on matchday one, hammering World Champions USA 3-0.
That was followed by a 4-2 victory over Australia and a 2-0 win against New Zealand as the Blue and Yellow cruised to top spot.
They then met Japan in Friday’s quarter-final and led after just seven minutes; Chelsea centre-back Magdalena Eriksson with the goal.
However, the hosts hit back shortly after, meaning the score was tied at 1-1 at half time.
Nevertheless, second half strikes from Stina Blackstenius and Kosovare Asllani saw the Swedes through to the semi-finals.
At the last Olympic Games, Sweden won their first medal in this competition, losing to Germany in Rio to claim silver.
Now, will the last European side in the competition get through to the final?
Australia meanwhile have already made history by getting this far but still want to make just a little bit more.
The Matildas only got through as one of the best-ranked third-place finishers, winning only once in Group G against New Zealand.
Their group campaign, as mentioned, featured a 4-2 loss to Sweden; will that make a difference in this one?
In the quarter-finals, Tony Gustavsson’s side were big underdogs against Great Britain but led just before half time through Alanna Kennedy.
However, with just moments to go, the Aussies were 2-1 behind but, after a scramble in the area, Sam Kerr fired in an equaliser.
2-2; extra time beckoned in Kashima.
In the first half of extra time, GB were awarded a penalty but Caroline Weir’s effort was saved by Teagan Micah.
Less than 60 seconds later, it was Australia who took the lead; Kerr with her second of the night.
Mary Fowler then made it 4-2 and, despite the fact Ellen White completed her hat-trick, Australia held on for a famous 4-3 victory.
This’ll be the Matildas first ever semi-final in an intercontinental competition having previously lost in all five quarter-finals.
The winners of this guarantee a medal and advance to the Gold Medal match while the losers head to the Bronze Medal game.
CONCACAF rivals Canada and four-time Olympic Gold Medalists USA go head to head in the other semi-final.
Who will win at International Stadium Yokohama?
Prediction: Australia 1-3 Sweden
Sweden are unbeaten in six meetings with Australia at World Cups or Olympics.
They’ve beaten the Aussies in 1999, 2004, 2011 and earlier at this tournament; the two have drawn in 2000 and 2015.
