The USA is the strongest team in the CONCACAF competitions. The Stars and Stripes finished first at the recent continental tournament, beating almost every opponent and getting a well-deserved pass to the Youth World Cup 2023. The Americans have made it to the World Youth Championships most of the time but have never finished higher than fourth place. They have an excellent opportunity to improve, as they produce terrific results in Argentina. They beat Ecuador 1:0, Fiji 3:0, and Slovakia 2:0 in the group stage, finishing first in quartet B.
New Zealand team is another dominant national team within their confederation. The Black and Whites have won five straight OFC gold medals in the last six editions of the tournament, with a combined score of 33:0 in all six games in 2022 that ensured their easy access to the final round of the 2023 FIFA World Cup. The tournament in Argentina started very productively for the New Zealanders as they beat Guatemala 1:0 in the opening round. After that, there was a 2:2 draw with Uzbekistan. The final group stage match saw a heavy 0:5 defeat at the hands of Argentina, but they still qualified for the playoffs after finishing third in Group A.
Expert Betting Tips
The USA team approached their first World Cup 2023 knock-out round as clear favorites. They've won the tournament's group stage admirably, winning all three games by a combined score of 6:0. The Americans were productive on the offensive end but were excellent on the defensive end. The New Zealanders, meanwhile, qualified for the playoffs in third place, with only one win in the group. The Black and Whites have never reached the quarter-finals at a World Cup before, so such an outcome is now unlikely. As a result, we should bet on the victory of the USA team with a handicap (-1,5).
The USA national team at the World Cup 2023 plays excellent defense. The Stars and Stripes have not conceded a goal in the three previous meetings. In the last ten official matches, they have allowed their opponents to hit the gate only twice, and both times, it was in the CONCACAF Cup. Now it will be difficult for the New Zealanders to crack the quality of their opponent's defense, and therefore, we prefer to see an individual total under 0.5 goals, and we would bet on a total under 2.5 goals.
