The Matildas face a tough task against the United States of America if betting is anything to go by at TAB.
The pair clash tonight in the final game of Group G where Australia are $7 outsiders against an American outfit that are paying $1.32.
USA were tournament favourites prior to The Games commencing but were routed 3-0 by Sweden in the opening match. They head into tonight’s game after thrashing New Zealand 6-1.
The Matildas made hard work of New Zealand by beating them 2-1 in their first game but lost 4-2 to Sweden a few days ago.
While a loss wouldn’t necessarily spell the end of Australia’s hopes, The Matildas need a solid performance if they are to progress to the knockout stages.
Tony Gustavsson’s side are $15 to claim Gold.
Meanwhile, the Olyroos are slight $2.40 favourites at TAB to beat Egypt in their final pool match tomorrow night and progress through to the next round.
Graham Arnold’s side were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Spain in their most recent outing but a strong win against Argentina has them finely placed to play knockout football.
