Qatar vs New Zealand: Top Free Betting Tips

The Maroons made little work of Jamaica in their last outing and now turn their attention towards New Zealand, who arrive at the Generali Arena after a 4-1 defeat to Sweden. It promises to be an exciting affair as they open their footballing hostilities.

Match Result Prediction: Qatar to Win

A quick-fire double in the first half saw Qatar cruise to a victory over Jamaica. On the other hand, New Zealand were on the back front from the get-go despite taking the lead in the 8th minute. Sweden sent three past them in return to swing the game in their favour. Results have not gone in Qatar's favour but they have shown their penchant for scoring. This puts them in better light against the All Whites and should help them come out on top.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Four of Qatar's last five matches have seen both sides hit the back of the net. Only Croatia B managed to shut them out in a low-scoring affair in this period. On the other hand, two of New Zealand's three outings in 2023 have seen blows exchanged. With both sides conceding and hitting the back of the net regularly recently, we expect more of the same in this duel. Fans will be delighted with goals on both ends at the Generali Arena.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Qatar

The Gulf Cup of Nations' proceedings started in January with Qatar scoring five goals in their four outings. They scored three in three since then. On the other hand, New Zealand has three in three during the calendar year. Given the regularity of Qatar's activities compared to the White Caps being relatively inactive, the Maroons' attackers should find their way to claim a 2-1 victory.

Qatar vs New Zealand: Form, Recent Games, and News

Qatar Preview

The Maroons made it to the 2022 World Cup and came up empty-handed. They were shut out by Ecuador and the Netherlands, suffering 2-0 defeats. They did manage to get on the scoreboard against Senegal but it was in vain with the final scoreline reading 1-3 against them. Since then, they have registered victories over Kuwait and Jamaica in seven outings. Since taking over, Carlos Queiroz is still finding his best players and has gotten good results hitting the back of the net but have been found wanting at the back.

New Zealand Preview

The White Caps' have not been in action regularly given their country's stringent Covid 19 policies. It has not helped their cause with just one win from their last eight outings. They have found scoring difficult with just three goals scored in this period, being shut out six times. However, their defence has held their end of the bargain with two clean sheets and only 10 goals conceded, with four of them coming in one outing.
