India Women will take on the Netherlands Women in their opener of the Olympics 2021. The Indian side is ranked 10th, while the Dutch Women are atop the FIH World Rankings.
Netherlands Women are on a five-match winning streak and will go into this fixture as favorites. Indian Women, on the other hand, have four losses and a draw to their name in their last five outings.
The Dutch side has a better record against the Nabhvarna and thus should win this game by a big margin.
