Stadium Australia (currently known as Accor Stadium) will host the Australia vs Denmark, the sixth Round of 16 clash of the FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 on Monday. After beginning the Women's World Cup with a narrow 1-0 win, Australia suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat to Nigeria in their second group game, leaving them in third place and at risk of an early exit. Despite having the pressure of being the tournament co-hosts, Australia saved their best for their final group match as they demolished the Olympic champions Canada by 4-0.

Denmark started their campaign with a narrow win over China before being stopped in their path by England on Matchday Two. Denmark picked themselves up and defeated Haiti 2-0 in their final group game to book their place against Australia for the Round of 16 clash.

Australia boss Tony Gustavsson can select an unchanged side. They defeated Canada comfortably so it might convince him to do that. Fowler marked her return to the starting lineup with a goal, and the Manchester City forward will be hoping to find the net again against Denmark. Sam Kerr has missed the group stage with a calf problem, but Australia's star striker could come off the bench in Monday's contest. It will be a huge match for both the teams so they will try and give their absolute best in terms of competition. Sam Kerr's arrival will be something, Australia are looking for. She can and will make a huge impact on a stage like this.

For Denmark, Stine Pedersen can make her return to the starting XI after dropping down to the bench for the win over Haiti. Josefine Hasbo may also return to the side for the last-16 tie, and she is likely to feature in a midfield three alongside Karen Holmgaard and Kathrine Kuhl. After opening her account for the tournament on Tuesday, Harder will be looking to add to her tally when she leads the line against Australia. Denmark will have to be more clinical than ever to beat the hosts.
