Italy vs Brazil (By: Dajkula)
In the last match of group C, Italy hosts Brazil. Italy is sitting pretty in the first place with 6 points and even if they lose today, they could still be first. The goal difference counts and Italy has +6. Brazil has 3 points but so does Australia which will surely beat Jamaica. Italy has to go for a win but even a draw may see them as the third-best team. Italy can play without pressure today but how they have performed so far I wouldn`t be surprised if they win. Italy had a great match against Australia and even if they had defensive lapses, they were always dangerous exploiting the high line of Australia. With the chances created they could have scored 4 -5 goals. Bonansea and Girelli have been elusive and scoring for fun.
Brazil had a good match with Australia but only till Marta was on the field. After she was substituted the team started showing some really slack defending. They conceded twice from defensive mistakes and finally lost the match 3:2. Australia was just a more aggressive side. Brazil can still make a good game today as they have nothing to lose and Marta and Cristiane can always score a couple of goals. Marta can probably play 60+ minutes today. The problem is the very poor run of form which saw them lose 10 of the last 11 matches. I believe this game has the potential for goals. In 2016 the game ended 5:3 for Brazil though it was a friendly.
