A place in the quarter-final of the FIFA Women's World Cup is at stake as Banyana Banyana and the Netherlands draw swords on Sunday. Which of these teams will be left standing at the end of this match?

Prediction 1: Netherlands to win

It's important to point out that the Netherlands are coming off a comfortable 7-0 victory over Vietnam. They've enjoyed some fine form lately, winning four of their last five matches. Moreover, Andries Jonker's side have no losses in their last five matches, with three clean sheets in that five-game stretch.

On the other hand, Banyana Banyana have two wins in their last eight matches across all competitions; they suffered four losses in that stretch, with two draws. It may interest you to know that the Netherlands have three wins in as many encounters with Banyana Banyana. Taking both teams' recent form into account, we believe Oranje will come out on top after 90 minutes.

Prediction 2: Both teams to score

Granted, the Netherlands did not concede in three of their last four matches. However, preventing this Banyana Banyana team from scoring is easier said than done. As a matter of fact, Desiree Ellis's side found the back of the net in all of their last seven games; they averaged two goals per game in their last five matches. Additionally, both teams were on the scoresheet in six of Banyana Banyana's last seven matches. Considering this was also the case in the last two skirmishes between these teams, we should expect goals at both ends.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 total goals

Our final Banyana Banyana vs Netherlands prediction is on the over/under goals market. We've already established that Desiree Ellis's side scored two goals per game on average in their last five matches. That said, it's no surprise that four of those games went above the 2.5 goal mark.

In like manner, the Netherlands registered nine goals in their three group games; they found the back of the net 18 times in their last five matches alone. All things considered, we should expect the goals to flow in this match.

Banyana Banyana vs Netherlands head to head

This will be the fourth encounter between these teams in the last seven years. Banyana Banyana and Oranje squared off against each other on three occasions, all in friendly matches. The Netherlands currently lead the head-to-head between these teams, with a perfect three wins from three.
