Top free betting tips and odds for Papua New Guinea vs New Zealand

In the race to enter the World Cup 2022, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand face each other in Qatar SC Stadium, Doha. Both teams enter this duel on the back of defeats.

New Zealand to Win

Papua New Guinea makes an appearance in an international event after a long wait and doesn’t have a quite well recent record. The Kapuls lost four games in the last seven outings, winning three of the remaining. Newzealand entered the year 2022 with a defeat but the team had consecutive three victories before that. The All Whites are also unbeaten in the previous three meetings against their upcoming rivals, winning two of them. So we believe New Zealand to mark the victory in the opening game of the group stage.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

New Zealand missed the target only once in the last five meetings and now have scored in all of the previous four outings consecutively. Papua New Guinea also missed the chance once in their recent games but the Kapuls have secured an incredible flow of scoring in almost all of the recent games. Based on the recent scoring drift of the teams, we expect both teams to get on the scoresheet, changing the trend of their recent H2Hs.

Papua New Guinea Predicted Lineup

The Kapuls got three victories out of the five meetings of Pacific games in 2019. Papua New Guinea ended that campaign with the defeat against fuji by losing in the penalty shootout. But following their recent record, the team will have to be more disciplined to face the coming rivals.

New Zealand Predicted Lineup

The All Whites didn’t make a good start to this year and lost a friendly international game by 3-1 against Jordan. But New Zealand would be eager to get back on their winning track in the qualifying campaign of the World Cup in Qatar.

Predicted XI: Michael Woud; Winston Reid, Michael Boxall, Tim Payne, Nikko Boxall; Joe Bell, Sarpreet Singh, Clayton Lewis; Elijah Just, Chris Wood, Joe Champness.
