Switzerland vs New Zealand : A Preview, Prediction,

On Sunday, July 30, Switzerland and New Zealand will play their last game of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup at the Forsyth Barr Stadium. Dunedin

Switzerland vs New Zealand Match Preview

With the outcome of Group A of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup still in doubt, Switzerland will face New Zealand to decide who will play in the knockout stage. With Switzerland leading the group on four points, a draw would be enough to confirm their place in the tournament’s knockout stage. New Zealand, on the other hand, will know that they will need to win in order to advance.

A draw would be enough for both teams to qualify for the knock-out stage, although it would require co-host Norway to draw with the Philippines, and given that both those teams will need a win to get into the knock-out phase, a draw among two desperate teams hardly seems likely.

On the other side, barring a shocking loss by the Europeans on the final day of the competition, a Swiss victory by three points would solidify their standing as group champions and would probably protect them from facing Spain in the Round of 16.

Head-to-Head between Switzerland vs New Zealand

Head-to-Head between Switzerland Women and New Zealand Women :

It will be the third head-to-head between the two teams. They met in 2013 and 2014 in friendlies, with New Zealand winning 2-1 in a comeback. New Zealand’s 1-0 win over Norway on the opening day of the World Cup was their first win in the competition.

Switzerland have won 1 of their last 9 games.

New Zealand have lost 10 of their last 11 games with at least one team failing to score.

Seven of New Zealand’s last eight games have been decided by less than three goals.


Switzerland vs New Zealand Prediction

To avoid being caught off guard during a break, the two managers are expected to deploy their respective teams heavily. Even though either team might win, the victory can be shared in a low-scoring draw.
