The bookmakers aren't expecting a huge amount of goalmouth action in Paris on Monday but backing both sides to find the net could prove profitable

Despite defeats in their final group games, both Sweden and Canada have advanced to the Women's World Cup knockout stages.

The winner of Monday's tie at the Parc des Princes will take on Germany, who cruised past Nigeria and into the quarterfinals.

Latest odds

Canada are 888Sport's favourites to win the game, priced at 8/5 (2.60) and 8/11 (1.73) to qualify by any means. Sweden sit at 21/10 (3.10) with the same firm to triumph in 90 minutes and 11/10 (2.10) to progress.

The draw is just 19/10 (2.90), demonstrating that the bookmakers believe this is set to be a close game in Paris.

Team News

Kosovare Asllani has returned to training. The 29-year-old, who scored against Chile and Thailand in the group stages, should give Sweden some much-needed attacking impetus.

Canada boss Kenneth Heiner-Moller also has a full squad to choose from.

Preview

Given how strong the respective defences are, it's understandable to see the bookmakers expecting a low-scoring contest in Paris.

Canada have only conceded in two of their previous 10 matches while Sweden have kept five clean sheets in the same period.

"No" on both teams to score is just 3/5 (1.60) while under 2.5 goals trades at 2/5 (1.40) with 888Sport.

Predictions

With little juice in backing a low-scoring game at the Parc des Princes, it could be worth taking the opposite view on this occasion.

Both teams to score is priced at an industry-best 5/4 (2.25) and appeals for a small wager.

Thailand found a way past Sweden's defence, albeit in a 5-1 defeat, but Canada should provide a stern test given they've netted in each of their three World Cup games so far.

Peter Gerhadsson's side will benefit from Asllani being passed fit and while they're not the most prolific side in the competition, the Swedes can contribute to the goal tally.

At 5/4 (2.25), the assumption of a tight game looks to have gone a little too far and as such both teams to score is worthy of a small play.
