Flying high after a remarkable turnaround win over Brazil, the Matildas should be able to secure back-to-back World Cup victories in style on Tuesday

Group C of the Women's World Cup is fascinatingly poised ahead of the final round of matches.

Italy sit top with six points while Brazil and Australia have three apiece. Unfortunately for Jamaica, that could spell bad news for their clash against the Matildas, who will be unlikely to ease off in their persuit of a knockout spot.

The size of the task awaiting the Reggae Girlz is evident by the 45/1 (46.0) quote on 888Sport about an unlikely win.

Australia are just 1/40 (1.025) to come out on top with the draw available at 15/1 (16.0) with the same firm.

Team News

Still yet to find the net in France, Jamaica's best chance of getting on the scoresheet is likely to be courtesy of Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw. The 22-year-old is still 7/1 (8.0) to find the net in this one though, and 24/1 (25.0) to break the deadlock.

Coach Ante Milicic called his sides' win over Brazil "one of the finest Australian performances I've seen". Given those plaudits it would be no surprise to see the favourites make few changes for this one.

Preview

It's been a tough World Cup campaign for Jamaica. Two defeats, eight goals conceded, and none scored don't bode well for a clash against Sam Kerr & Co.

Both teams to score is 13/5 (3.60) suggesting that 888Sport aren't expecting the underdogs to get off the mark in Grenoble.

Jamaica Women vs Australia Women

Australia are a 7/10 (1.70) chance to win by four or more goals while a victory by five or more is 13/8 (2.63) with 888Sport.

Predictions

What the Reggae Girlz have done effectively is contain their opposition in the early stages and a similar situation could play out here.

Brazil were only 1-0 up at the break in their clash with Jamaica before adding some gloss to the score line and triumphing 3-0. While comfortable, Italy ramped up the pressure in the second period too, netting three times in the second 45 minutes compared to twice before hand.

888Sport go 11/10 (2.10) that the second half of this game sees three or more goals. With Australia aware that goal difference could come into play, they'll be unlikely to coast in the later stages and this bet looks a very solid option.
