China are aiming to end the Netherlands’ unbeaten run at the tournament. The Chinese have picked up one point from six possible and could still finish third in the group to qualify for the quarterfinals.

Netherlands Women vs China Women Betting Odds

 

 

The quality of teams in Group F is low. The Netherlands and Brazil are the best sides in the group and should qualify for the quarterfinals. Our betting tips experts believe that the Netherlands should claim a win over China with several goals being tallied. However, China are trying to throw a spanner in the works. China’s attack benefitted from a very poor defensive Zambia team. They struggle against Brazil and those struggles could come back against the Dutch.

 

Sarina Wiegman’s team are No. 3 in the world in women’s football. The Dutch finished second at the 2019 FIFA World Cup and won the 2017 UEFA Women’s Euros. This is their first Olympic women’s football tournament. Bookies have the Netherlands at betting odds of 10/3 to win the tournament. The Dutch have the second-best betting odds next to the Americans.

Bookies have the Netherlands at betting odds of 1/6 to win the match on Tuesday versus China. They are at heavy favourites odds, while the best betting odds for China are at 12/1 to win the match. China’s women’s national team are winless in three straight matches and have only played four times in 2021.

Netherlands Women vs China Women Team News

Arsenal striker Anna Miedema is having a brilliant Olympic women’s football tournament. The striker has six goals in two games. She scored four times against Zambia before bagging two versus Brazil. With the form Miedema is in, she could score against China. Wiegman has no reason to sit Miedema on the bench with first place in Group F on the line.

Winning Group F may not be a blessing for the Dutch, however. As it stands, the Dutch could play against the United States in the quarterfinals. Miedema scored 18 goals in 22 Women’s Super League games for Arsenal in 2020-21. Lieke Martens has scored twice for the Dutch at the women’s tournament. She is likely to start as well for Wiegman.

China’s Wang Shuang scored four times for China against Zambia. The Chinese have looked poor in attack, although they improved throughout their match versus Brazil. However, their improvement came after Brazil were already two goals up.

Shuang’s brilliance showed just how weak the rest of the Chinese squad is. If Shuang is marked out of the game by the Dutch, China are likely to struggle to score goals. The Dutch have conceded goals in both matches at the Olympic tournament. They even allowed three goals to a poor Zambia. Shuang could get the best of the Dutch’s defence.

Netherlands Women vs China Women H2H

China are unbeaten in back-to-back matches versus the Netherlands. China claimed a 1-0 win at the 2015 Women’s World Cup and followed it up with a 1-1 draw at the 2019 Algarve Cup. The 1-1 draw between the teams was eventually won by the Dutch on penalties, 4-2.

The Netherlands have not defeated China in regulation in their last two fixtures. The Dutch are aiming to win against the Chinese for the first time, which would allow them to win the group – unless Brazil defeat Zambia by a large scoreline.
