Olympic Soccer (Women) - How to watch Matchday 3 on July 27, 2021

The Olympic football tournament will see the end of the group stage in the women's category with as many as six spots left to hand in the knockout stage. While it seems that almost every team has a fighting chance of making the next round, we need to have a close look at all three groups and the third-place teams to see where the tickets to the next round could go.

In order to keep things clear, Matchday 3 games will have all groups being decided at the same time, meaning that both games from the same group will have similar kickoff times. Hence, by the time a particular batch of games comes to an end, we will know the identities of the national teams that will remain in the fight for the podium.

Here's how all groups stand prior to Tuesday's games.

Here's how all games on Matchday 3 will take place.

USA vs Australia

The North American side bounced back from a disappointing loss in their first match with an emphatic 6-1 win over New Zealand. Now, the Stars and Stripes will control their fate when they lock horns against Australia, a team that could secure their spot in the next round with a draw as one of the best third-placed teams. With all that can be at stake here, we have to expect an interesting match to kick off the activity in Group C.

New Zealand vs Sweden

Sweden will try to finish the group stage with a perfect record, and in order to do that, they will have to find a way to beat New Zealand, one of two teams that has not been able to collect any points in the tournament. The Swedish side is seen by many as the top candidate to win the gold, and by winning this clash without any problems, they could surely cement that reputation and enter the KO stage on a high note.

Chile vs Japan

The hosts need to win this game if they want to keep their options to make the next round open, both as the runners-up in the group or as one of the best third-placed teams. Chile's options to make the next round rely solely in a win, since they are the other team without any points after two games. Any result different from a win would see the Chileans pack their bags and going home regardless of what happens in the other game.

Canada vs Great Britain

The British side has claimed a spot in the next round, although they have not secured the top spot in the group due to their narrow lead over Canada. A win for the Canadians would see both teams through, but the North American side would enter the KO stage in first place. Meanwhile, a draw would be the least damaging thing for both teams, as they would make the next round unharmed and in the current position they hold at the moment even if Japan win their game.

Brazil vs Zambia

The Verdeamarela make the last game of the group stage with all to play for and in prime position to fight for the top spot in Group B. Facing them will be Zambia, a team that had a baffling debut but fought to earn one point against China in an exciting four-four draw. The Zambians have slim chances of making the next round, but if they can shock Brazil -and the world-, then they could enter the next round as one of the top third-placed teams. Let's see if the historic Brazilian players allow the African team to succeed.

Netherlands vs China

The high-scoring Dutch side was held to a three-all draw by Brazil in their last match, but their more than emphatic win over Zambia has practically secured them a spot in the next round. To confirm that, the Dutch team will have to beat China, who are also in the running to end the group stage as one of the best third-placed teams. If you are a betting man, the odds favor Netherlands to win the game, but China has proven that heart can sometimes substitute skill, and they could prove to be a tough nut to crack for the European debutants in the Olympic competition.
