USA vs Netherlands preview & prediction 

Match preview

On Thursday, July 27, the group stage of the 2023 Women’s World Cup will begin at the Wellington Regional Stadium with the defending champion USA taking on the 2019 runners-up Netherlands.

With a 3-0 victory over Vietnam on Friday, the 2019 winners began their campaign. Sophia Smith scored two goals in the first half, while Lindsey Horan added a third in the 77th. They had won 10 games in a row overall, and it was their fourth straight win without giving up.

Stefanie van der Gragt’s goal in the 13th minute gave Netherlands a 1-0 victory over Portugal in their opening match. They had won three straight matches overall.

With four victories, the USA are the most dominant team in Women’s World Cup history. They want to achieve an unheard-of three-peat. While this is going on, the Netherlands, who are competing in their third World Cup, reached the final in just their second participation in 2019.

USA vs Netherlands prediction

USA defeated debutants Vietnam 3-0 in their World Cup campaign opening to keep up their good streak. In the main tournament, they have won 14 of their 15 games without losing. They have an advantage against the Netherlands because they have only suffered one loss.

Meanwhile, Netherlands lost to the USA in the 2019 championship game and is eager for exact retribution. Prior to the championship game, they had a perfect record. They should put up a strong fight because they have won four of their past five games.

However, based on the USA’s World Cup performance and recent matches against the Netherlands, expect them to win by a slim margin.
