Portugal vs United States Women’s FIFA World Cup 8/1/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


A crucial showdown awaits in the 2023 Women’s World Cup as the USA and Portugal lock horns, aiming for a spot in the competition’s Knockout stage.


This pivotal match, the third and final in the group stage, is scheduled at Eden Park in Auckland, New Zealand, on Tuesday.


Portugal experienced mixed results in their previous matches, starting with a 1-0 loss to the Netherlands and then a 2-0 victory over Vietnam, marking their first-ever Women’s World Cup goal.


Portugal displayed an impressive attacking performance, outshooting Vietnam 28-6 and landing nine shots on target, while Vietnam managed only one on target.


Having secured a historic win in their debut Women’s World Cup appearance, Portugal is now within reach of qualifying for the Round of 16.


To achieve this, they must either defeat the USA or secure a draw hoping that Vietnam can overcome the Netherlands, which appears challenging.


Despite facing the reigning world champions, Portugal enters the match with a fearless approach and high confidence level, eager to make their mark on the tournament.


However, Portugal faces a potential concern with three players, Jessica Silva, Diana Gomes, and captain Ana Borges, being at risk of suspension due to yellow card accumulation, which could impact their participation in the Round of 16 if they progress.


Jessica Silva, an accomplished forward with 13 international goals, showcased her goal-scoring prowess last season, netting 16 goals for Benfica in the Portuguese top flight.


On the other hand, the USA began their 2023 Women’s World Cup campaign with a convincing 3-0 victory over Vietnam but faced a tougher challenge against the Netherlands, resulting in a 1-1 draw.


The United States, four-time Women’s World Cup champions, including the last two editions, could potentially face an early exit from the tournament if they lose in this match.


They currently lead their group (Group E) with four points, tied with the Netherlands but holding a superior goal differential (+3 to +1).

Portugal vs United States Women’s FIFA World Cup Predictions 8/1/2023


The United States has a strong track record against debuting nations in the Women’s World Cup, winning all eight of their previous encounters, including 18 goals scored and only four conceded.


However, their recent 1-1 draw against the Netherlands exposed some vulnerabilities, making their response against Portugal crucial in shaping their journey in the tournament.


With an impressive 11-game unbeaten streak, including ten wins, the USA is expected to assert its dominance and secure a victory, given the significant difference in class and quality between the two teams.


The USA has an impeccable record against Portugal, winning all ten previous meetings and amassing an impressive combined scoreline of 39-0.


Injuries affected the USA squad before the tournament, ruling out players such as Mallory Swanson, Becky Sauerbrunn, Christen Press, and Catarina Macario from World Cup duty.


Consequently, there might be potential changes in the U.S. forward line, with players like Lynn Williams and Alyssa Thompson being considered for rotation.


Meanwhile, Sophia Smith and Trinity Rodman are likely to retain their positions. Rose Lavelle, who made a significant impact as a substitute against the Netherlands, may start if fully fit.


Julie Ertz might shift into midfield with Alana Cook potentially making her first start in defense.


Portugal vs  United States. The United States has a clear advantage over Portugal based on their experience at this level and their undefeated record against debuting nations, winning all eight of their previous matches.


It is expected that the United States will emerge victorious in this matchup.


However, a safer bet would be to go with the UNDER, as Portugal may struggle to break through the strong U.S. backline, and the total score will likely remain below 2.5.


The Navegadoras showed their run in this Portugal-USA fixture. However, the Stars and Stripes will demonstrate their prowess and aim for three straight World Cups.


A high-scoring affair is expected at Eden Park, but the Yankees should win here. Prediction: The United States wins but our best play is UNDER 2-0.
