Australia take on the visitors New Zealand in a friendly International match. The match will be played on Thursday, September 22nd.
Australia national team was able to break through to Mundial via the continental playoffs. First, they’ve beaten the UAE in a difficult match 2-1, scoring at the end, and then on penalties they coped with Peru after 0-0 and once again they will go to the Mundial, which they have not missed since 2006. In general, the Socceroos have an experienced and interesting team, which does not always have enough speed and physical condition on a par with the top teams, so I don’t expect great achievements from them in Qatar, and in this fight, they will seize the initiative, but it will not be easy to hack the New Zealanders positionally.

New Zealand failed to qualify for the Mundial, losing 0-1 to Costa Rica in the decisive match of continental playoffs. A team with a clear focus on defense and counterattacks in this away friendy match should not change their football approach. The Kiwis have experienced Chris Wood from the Premier League at the forefront, play in a 5-4-1 formation and maintain a very tight balance between the lines. The national team is mainly aimed at destroying the opponent's attacks, which the Socceroos should demonstrate in all its glory.
4 goals for such a match, in my opinion, is unreachable number. New Zealand are entirely about game performance and will be set to destroy, dry the game, because this is how it almost always plays with stronger opponents, but the Australians do not have enough speed and skills to crack such defensive formations once or twice. Yes, the Socceroos are more skilled, as a more experienced team, but they experience problems in the positional attack, so the low-scoring result is obvious here.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.0 scored goals.
