Matildas Abroad Preview: Aussies go head-to-head in Sweden
Before the international break begins and our Matildas Abroad travel to Spain for a first-ever encounter, one final weekend of club action awaits our Australians.
The Australians face off in Sweden, while the San Diego Wave appears to remain top of the NWSL standings.
Kicking off in the United States, Emilie van Egmondit is First-placed San Diego Wave FC travel to take on NJ/NY Gotham FC as they look to breathe a bit of a breather at the top of the table.
Wave FC sit in first place with 15 points, with the Chicago Red Stars sitting behind them also with 15 points, however, they are one game short against San Diego.
San Diego has faced three straight draws and will be looking to collect all three points against a Gotham team that has only recorded three wins so far.
This game will start on Monday morning at 6:00 a.m. AEST.
Let’s move on to Sweden, the last games before the break are here. Remy Siemsen‘s AIK has a tough job to do when hosting Teagan Micah and Charlie Grantof FC Rosengård, who currently sit in first place.
AIK have recorded just two wins for the season, while their opponents are yet to be defeated in the season and will be aiming to extend their unbeaten streak to 15 games.
FC Rosengård come into the game in good shape, winning last weekend 5-2.
This match will start on Sunday evening at 21:00 AEST.
Lately, Claire Polkinghorne and Katrina GorriVittsjö’s Vittsjö GIK host KIF Örebro as they aim for their eighth win of the season.
Vittsjö comes into this game after a stellar 3-2 victory against BK Häcken last weekend, and is now just four points away from taking Häcken in fourth place.
The last time the two sides met in May, Gorry scored an 87th-minute winner to seal a 1-0 win over KIF Örebro. Vittsjö will be aiming for a similar result, to give them confidence ahead of the break.
