Finally we can compare Blank to other international teams. I wouldn't be surprised if they win this one I think it'll be close.

2-2 or Sweden 3-1

Result effects on group standings:

Sweden 4:0 Australia means Sweden take 1st in group.
Sweden 3:1 Australia means that it's a tie for first place in group

Australia taking 2 maps or more means that Australia lock in 1st in group

On a side-note if Australia 4:0 Sweden and Portugal 4:0 Italy it would mean that Sweden and Portugal would be tied for 2nd place as well.

Yeah, on that note Sweden just need to win one map to guarantee a top two finish and a shot at the qualifier, but if they do end up getting 4-0'd AND Portugal 4-0 Italy we're looking at a Bo3 tiebreaker, on Oasis I believe.

I don't really know how to quantify Sweden's strength relative to the hometown Aussies right now, but here's my stab at it:

3-1 for BLANKstralia

If Sweden 3:1 Australia it would also lead to a tie for 1st place, so there's two potential scenarios for ties in group C at the moment, SWE/AUS for 1st and SWE/PRT for 2nd.

Wouldn't be a tie. Sweden wins the tiebreaker by having a 2-0-1 map record vs Australia's 2-1-0, on top of having won the head to head.

Sweden and Australia are the stars of this group but Sweden 2-2 with Portugal and Australia 4-0 against Portugal so if we take that in to consideration Australia should have the most odds on this match

Sweden brings their A game. Blankstralia ties with Swefits 2-2.

4-0 Fusion Girls

did the matches get shifted back a bit for some reason?

think its gonna be close.... 2-2 looks more than possible

1

if Sweden lose 0-4 and Portugal win 4-0 they'll be tied, and they drew their match so what are the tiebreaker scenarios?

e: apparently it's a bo3 on Oasis

Why should there be a tie if Sweden 3-1s Australia, they would lead in direct comparison.

Also I think it will be either 3-1, 2-2, or 1-3, so Sweden will advance.

Portugal confirmed out now, right?

I'd feel bad if Australia lose on TV but Sweden is a formidable opponent so i don't espect a 4-0 from AUS

hmmm, I really wasn't expecting the Swedes to be able to even tie this one. Usually I'd say the pre-formed team would have the advantage. Surprised to see Australia isn't performing better, though I think they'll still tie this one up 2-2. Good play out of the Swedes so far.

Well played to both sides! Very close through the last two matches for sure.

Yep, that was loads of fun to watch.
