Westfield Matildas v China PR: 5 key stats ahead of final Algarve Cup group game

The Westfield Matildas will seek to secure an Algarve Cup final berth by maintaining their recent dominance over China PR on Tuesday morning.

Kicking off at 6:00am AEDT, Alen Stajcic's side will almost certainly need three points at Albufeira Municipal Stadium if they're to remain a chance of reaching the decider.

They can do that by continuing the kind of form that saw them beat China PR 3-0 and 5-1 in November.

Goals flowed freely in those friendlies, but a second successive clean sheet following the 0-0 draw with Portugal could prove just as satisfying.

Read on for the key stats and facts ahead of the team's final Group A fixture.
