We’re heading to Day 1 of the Olympics in Tokyo for today’s best as Australia and New Zealand square off in the women’s football competition.
Both sides have had limited preparation for the event due to the pandemic, but Australia were fortunate to play a series of friendlies across Europe over the last couple of months, which should hold them in good stead here.
By contrast, New Zealand only played one match in the build-up to the Olympics since March 2020 – and that was a poor 3-0 loss to Great Britain last week.
Australia have been supremely dominant over New Zealand throughout history, winning 30 of the 43 games played between the sides.
Additionally, Australia have gone undefeated against the Kiwis since 1994.
With one of the world’s best strikers in Sam Kerr in their line-up, Australia will be hoping to at least match their last two Olympics appearances, where they made the quarter-finals.
The Matildas will be confident of getting off to the perfect start against New Zealand and we can find some value in the win to nil market.
Australia have kept a clean sheet in their last four victories over the Kiwis dating back to 2012, while New Zealand have failed to score in seven of their last 10 games.
Australia are huge favourites to prevail, but the value jumps significantly from $1.30 to $2.00 if we back them to do it with a clean sheet – which they’ve done in the last four meetings between the teams.
- New Zealand haven’t beaten Australia in 27 years
- Australia’s last four wins over New Zealand have been to nil
- New Zealand’s only game in the last year was a 3-0 loss to Great Britain last week
- New Zealand have failed to score in seven of their last 10 games
- Four of Australia’s last five wins have been to nil
