Why you should back Spain
Teresa Abelleira has been a dynamic playmaker for the Spaniards. The 23-year-old midfielder for Real Madrid has created 14 chances so far at the Women’s World Cup, more than any player in the tournament and five more than her closest pursuer. She also scored one of the best goals of the tournament with a howler from outside the box in Spain’s 5-0 group stage victory over Zambia.
In addition, the Spaniards face a Switzerland team that has struggled to score at the Women’s World Cup. The Swiss have just two goals in the tournament, both coming against an overmatched Philippines side in the group stage opener. Switzerland have now gone scoreless in three out of their last four matches, including a scoreless draw against Morocco in a pre-tournament friendly. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Switzerland
The Swiss have one of the best defenses in the tournament. The team has not yet conceded a goal in the Women’s World Cup after facing the Philippines, Norway and New Zealand. The team also has allowed just eight total shots on goal.
In addition, Switzerland have a veteran goal scorer in Ramona Bachmann. The 32-year-old forward for Paris Saint-Germain has four career World Cup goals, the most of any Swiss player ever. In the team’s World Cup opener against the Philippines, she scored on a penalty kick to get the scoring started in a 2-0 win. See which team to pick here.
