Having played the 3 games this season, Australia women have registered with 2 victories and lost once against Belgium women. They have won a match against China women who were debutants but it took some toil to defeat them. They were in conjunction with only one goal, while their opening win of the season came against the Netherlands.
The German women brigade who will be playing their debut game this season will look to improve their show against Australia women who have dominated them through years. Going by the stats since 2013, Germany has won only a single game while Australia women have reigned supreme thrice from 6 meetings between the two sides.

AUS vs GER Team Information
- Australia women will look into play their same team which defeated China in their last fixture.
- Germany makes debutant against Australia who are typically strong against them since past years.
Spread: -1 Australia
Australia team was so strong. There was no chance to escape the goal from the Australian keeper as he had maintained 2 clean-sheets in the last 5 games. So, selecting him is the best choice.
Take more defenders from the Australian team as a whenever midfielder from the Germany team, defenders from Australian who are tough and robust will have a chance to make more tackles. Also, the Australian team will have a chance of having more possession.
To create a balanced we have take midfielders equally from either side. More midfielders from the Australian team will be the safe pick because of having more possession when compared to Germany’s midfielders.
Obviously, we called the players from the Australian attackers. Try to take more forward players from the Australian as they have maintained 2 clean-sheets in the last 5 games. Also, they are scoring on avg of 2+ goals per game.
I will update the team before the deadline. Please check it.
