New Zealand U23 vs Korea U23 Prediction

New Zealand’s Olympic-level youth football has only really emerged in the 21st century with small appearances at the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics. With that immaturity, the New Zealand U23s always stop at the group stage is also very understandable. Even the stability of New Zealand U23 is not too great with the absence of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The attack of New Zealand U23 still plays well enough, but what has passed shows that this team is likely to play pragmatically and towards certainty in defense.

Korea U23 Overview

Korea U23 is the defending champion of the Asian Games. Not only that, but their achievements at the Olympic men’s football events are also extremely impressive when they always go relatively far.

Korea U23 has not really matched and is not too good in their play.

Thus, in the Asian handicap of this match, New Zealand is the best choice in the first half, and in the whole match, of course, Korea will be the wiser choice.

Thus, the experts are very confident in the possibility that today’s match will end with only 2 goals scored.
