Australia vs Denmark H2H
Australia’s Steph Catley has been absolutely killing it on the field, scoring a whopping two goals in recent matches. But don’t count out Denmark’s Sanne Troelsgaard just yet – she’s looking to double up on the one goal she scored in her last outing.
WIN – DRAW – WIN
OVER – UNDER

Australia are normally quick off the mark, having scored the first goal in all three of their World Cup games. Denmark have pulled off the same feat twice in comparison. BTTS has been the right pick in just one of Australia’s three games.
