Draw

New Zealand will be back as a team for the first time in almost two years. The reaction from New Zealand will be interesting in the opening 30 minutes. Curacao have been playing more regularly but they have not picked up a lot of good results. Curacao’s major success in recent months was against British Virgin Islands, but New Zealand are a much better team. The lack of a regular football, though, could end up costing New Zealand in this game.

Total goals under 2.5

There will be a lot of rustiness within the New Zealand setup, which includes players from more than 15 different countries. Curacao have also decided to call up a similar global squad, but they have been playing more regularly. Curacao, though, have scored only once in the last four matches.

Both teams to score – yes

Curacao are without a goal even in winnable matches over the last few months. New Zealand have decided to go for Chris Wood, who will be a major goal threat against any opponent. Curacao, though, should be able to find the back of the net thanks to the better fitness and shape.

Curacao vs New Zealand: Team News and Match Preview

Curacao

Curacao will be hoping to use the recent experience of Bahrain and the conditions in the country to get an advantage over New Zealand. This happens to be the biggest match in the path of Curacao for the time being. After having picked up just one win in the last five matches, Curacao are going to build momentum after topping group C in the World Cup qualification.

New Zealand

New Zealand may not have a lot of expectations coming into the game. Due to the pandemic, the All Whites have not been in action for more than two years. Danny Hay, though, has decided to go with a very strong squad that features the likes of Chris Wood.
