Brazil: This team has its top two scorers in history in Marta and Cristiane, but the concern here has to be stopping Sam Kerr in the final third. You can argue she's the best player at this tournament, and her ability to strike from anywhere will have Brazil on its heels. Expect plenty of double teams coming her way.
Australia: They have to get others involved besides Kerr, who scored in the opener. With her likely facing double teams and pressure, she is going to need to touch the ball one or two times and quickly move it, while running into space. Those quick passes will be key to finding her in space.
Brazil vs. Australia prediction
An intense start sees both teams score, but neither team can find the winner in the second half.
Pick: Brazil 1, Australia 1
