Great Britain have been brilliant at the women’s Olympic football tournament. Hege Riise’s team won their two opening fixtures against Chile and Japan by a combined score of 3-0. Superstar striker Ellen White has scored all three goals for Great Britain this summer. A win or draw against Canada on Tuesday would allow Great Britain to top Group E. A loss would see the Canadians win Group E.

Canada Women vs Great Britain Women Match Preview

Bev Priestman’s Canada team are on four points after two matches. Canada drew 1-1 with Japan to open the tournament before defeating Chile 2-1. Janine Beckie scored twice for Canada against Chile to claim the win.

The winner of Group E will play the third-place side from either group G or F. As it stands, the winner of Group E would take on Australia in the quarterfinals. However, that fixture is not set in stone as Canada could pip Great Britain to first place in Group E. In addition, Australia could still finish ahead of the United States in Group G, The Yanks would be a very unwanted opponent for either Canada or Great Britain.

Canada were runners-up at the 2018 Olympic women’s football tournament. It is a competition they have won on two occasions (1998 and 2010). Priestman’s veteran team will fancy their chances of winning against Great Britain and ending their two-match Olympic winning streak.

Canada Women vs Great Britain Women Team News

Great Britain have been led in attack by Ellen White. She has scored three goals in three games for the British team. White bagged two goals against Chile and a third versus Japan. Riise is likely to play White from the start against Canada as the coach seeks to win the group. Defender Steph Houghton has anchored the team’s defence and will again play at the back.

Great Britain have kept two straight clean sheets at the Olympics. However, Canada’s attack will provide greater opposition on Tuesday. Riise could finally have tricky winger Fran Kirby fit and available to play after she missed the first two matches of the tournament.

Canada have conceded twice in two games. They even allowed the poor attacking team of Chile to score in a 2-1 win. Christine Sinclair, the all-time record goalscorer in international football with 187 goals for Canada, tallied a strike in the opening game versus Canada. She will lead the line versus Great Britain. Janine Beckie, who scored twice versus Chile and is in-form, will play next to Sinclair in attack.

Kailen Sheridan is likely to be selected as goalkeeper after Stephanie Labbe went off with an injury in the opening game against Japan. Labbe collided with a Japanese player to give away a penalty which caused the injury. She saved the penalty before going off.

Full-time result: DRAW @ 23/10 - BET NOW

 

 

Just one prior meeting between Canada and Great Britain has occurred between these sides. Canada won the game 2-0. Canada saw four of their last five matches finish in draws and we predict that result could occur once more on matchday 3 of Group E. A draw will send Great Britain through as group winners. It would also be enough for Canada to qualify for the quarterfinals in second place.

It is difficult to imagine anyone on the Great Britain team other than Ellen White scoring goals. Our betting tips and prediction is that White could score for a fourth time at the tournament. She is in great form going into the match and only Great Britain player able to find the back of the net this summer.

 

Under 2.5 goals scored @ 4/6 - BET NOW

 

 

Our betting tips experts have looked over the games at the Olympic women’s tournament and predict the fixture between Canada and Great Britain to finish with under 2.5 goals. Four of Canada’s last six matches finished with under 2.5 goals scored. Meanwhile, Great Britain have seen both matches at the Summer Games end with under 2.5 goals tallied.

 

Great Britain’s defence is playing great and should keep this a low-scoring game. Their attack hasn’t hit the heights some would have expected. If White is off her game, Riise may not have anyone to score the goals. Therefore, our betting tips experts believe this game will finish in a stalemate.
