New Zealand wins
New Zealand has shown great momentum in the lead up to this competition. The Kiwis will be in a strong position if they win on the first day. After the defeat against Brazil, Korea’s confidence and momentum has dropped. Despite the talent of its players, Korea may not be in a position to match the New Zealand players, who regularly face some of the most renowned names in European football.
Minimum one team must not score
South Korea would have been in a strong position to reach the knockout stages had it not been for Heung-Min Son’s absence. New Zealand has had a great experience through the squad, and they have shown a lot more defensive solidarity in recent matches.
Goals less than 2.5
New Zealand is likely to try for a clean sheet during this opening match. This would put them in a good position and a match against South Korea with no top players would be a great time to do so. New Zealand’s defense can be difficult to break, as was evident in the friendly against Australia.
New Zealand Olympic Vs South Korea Olympic prediction, tips & stats
Matchday 1 of Group B at the Olympic Games football will see New Zealand take on South Korea.
The national team coach Danny Hay manages New Zealand. They weren’t there for the Olympic Games 2016 in Rio so they will be trying to impress this year as new entrants. The All White’s chose only two players over age and Winston Reid, West Ham United’s defender, is the most prominent player in their squad. Reid spent last season on loan at Brentford, who was recently promoted to Premier League. Chris Wood also joined the team from Burnley. They have combined 82 international caps between them.
South Korea won Group C at Rio’s Olympic Games last time, ahead of Mexico and Germany. However, they were shocked to lose 1-0 to Honduras during the quarter-finals. They will attempt to replicate their London 2012 feat, which saw them finish third in the field behind Brazil’s very talented side, including Neymar and Thiago Silva.
Only two Korean players are notable outside their home country, and they are the Bordeaux and Valencia forwards HwangUi-jo (Lee Kang-in) and Valencia forwards Hwang Kang-in. Hwang Uijo, who has scored 14 goals in 36 caps for South Korea’s senior national team, is possibly the best goal threat at the Olympics.
