USWNT vs. Canada projected lineups

With Canada expected to sit deep, Vlatko Andonovski is anticipated to pitch his most creative lineup (with Rose Lavelle and Lindsey Horan in midfield) and set-piece specialist Megan Rapinoe in the starting XI.

Alex Morgan and Tobin Heath would be great alternatives off the bench if the USWNT gets the lead and the game continues to extend.

It will be intriguing to watch if Allysha Chapman, who played 109 minutes in the quarterfinal against Brazil, is brought back on short rest by Canada coach Bev Priestman.

Jayde Riviere is more likely to start at right-back, with Ashley Lawrence shifting to left-back.

Vanessa Gilles also played the entire match against Brazil, and despite her excellent performance, Shelina Zadorsky, who has been rested, could earn the nod.

USWNT projected starters (4-3-3, left to right): 

1-Alyssa Naeher — 2-Crystal Dunn,
4-Becky Sauerbrunn, 17-Abby Dahlkemper,
5-Kelley O’Hara — 9-Lindsey Horan, 8-Julie Ertz,
16-Rose Lavelle — 15-Megan Rapinoe,
10-Carli Lloyd,
11-Christen Press

Canada projected starters (4-2-2-2, left to right): 

1-Stephanie Labbe-GK — 10-Ashley Lawrence,
4-Shelina Zadorsky,
3-Kadeisha Buchanan,
8-Jayde Riviere — 5-Quinn,
11-Desiree Scott — 12-Christine Sinclair,
17-Jessie Fleming — 16-Janine Beckie,
15-Nichelle Prince

USA vs. Canada: Odds & prediction

The Canadian women’s national team has only allowed more than one goal once this calendar year (against Brazil in a 2-0 loss in February), and has only scored more than one goal in three of those ten matches.

So, despite the fact that it didn’t happen in the 2012 Olympic semifinal, a low-scoring contest should be predicted (4-3 final score for the USA).

There are various ways to play the odds based on goal totals if you’re going with the conventional choice and keeping with the favoured USA (scored and allowed).

The USWNT has only been shut out twice this year, both in these Olympics against Sweden (3-0 loss) and Australia (0-0 draw), despite having plenty of chances.

Prediction: USA 1, Canada 0

  • Canada to win (90 mins): +425

  • Draw (90 mins): +260
