Netherlands Women are back in action with another exciting football match at Tokyo Olympics 2020 as they take on China PR Women on Tuesday. Netherlands Women have been in excellent form and are the favourites to win this game.
China PR Women have managed only one point from their two group matches so far and have not been at their best this year. The Chinese have conceded nine goals in two games and cannot afford to put a foot wrong this week.
Netherlands Women, on the other hand, have been virtually unstoppable and will be intent on winning a medal this year. The Dutch giants have lethal players in their ranks and will want to make a statement of intent in this fixture.
Netherlands Women vs China PR Women Head-to-Head
China PR Women have a surprisingly impressive record against Netherlands Women and have won one out of two games played between the two teams. Netherlands Women have never defeated China Women in an official game and have a point to prove on Tuesday.
The previous meeting between the two teams took place in 2019 and ended in a hard-fought draw. Netherlands Women squandered several chances on the day and will need to be more clinical this week.
