New Zealand vs South Korea prediction. In the first round of the Olympic Games, the teams that have a small chance of a productive performance in Tokyo will meet, and we will soon find out what the rivals are going to surprise each other with.
Below we will talk in detail about the conditions in which the opponents approach the first head-to-head confrontation.
New Zealanders are rightfully considered outsiders of any tournaments, since they usually look weak against the background of the overwhelming majority of competitors. At the current competitions, the team is also unlikely to be able to properly prove itself, because there are a huge number of problematic positions in its composition. The most important thing is that there are no pronounced mastodons in the squad's cage that could motivate less qualified performers to make rapid progress.
At the last OI, the Koreans reached the quarterfinals, but they will most likely not be able to repeat their success. Only the leader of the national team, Son Heung-min, could have saved the situation, but he, unfortunately, remained in Tottenham's favor. The Asian team is able to get out of the group. However, in the playoffs, he is very likely to be defeated by the first serious opponent. Nevertheless, we all know that the most unexpected things sometimes happen in sports. So it is premature to put an end to the prospects of such a strong national team, however, it should not be.
