Tournament and match favourites USA look set to continue their successful run in their first game of the Round of 16 against Spain in Reims: There is little to avail Spain's cause in the event chart cast for the time of the match, whilst the Moon's immediate trine to Mars (Lord 1) and then Mercury (Lord 10) are both powerful testimonies for a USA victory.
Both Canada and Sweden won their places in the Round of 16 by finishing second in their respective groups. The teams are well-matched as reflected by the odds, with Canada only slightly favoured to win.
The event chart for the match is equally equivocal: The Moon's trine to Mercury (Lord 7), favours outsiders Sweden, but Venus' (Lady of the 10th) placement on the cusp of the 7th house is a powerful testimony that favourites Canada will dominate the match.
However, it can happen that a football team can give a command performance on the pitch and yet not score enough to win the match.
Of the two testimonies, the Moon's trine to Mars is more likely to translate into actual goals, and victory for the underdogs.
