New Zealand v Philippines Prediction – Form (All Competitions)
New Zealand have had mixed results in all competitions in the run-up to the Women’s World Cup, but they maanged to snag a win in their first game. The Philippines, meanwhile, have had also alternating wins and losses, yet fell short in their World Cup debut. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.
New Zealand v Philippines Prediction – Preview
New Zealand currently sit atop Group A with three points. They surprised higher-ranked Norway by handing them a 1-0 defeat at Eden Park in Auckland. This was the first win of the Football Ferns at the tournament, which saw Hannah Wilkinson tap in Jacqui Hand‘s cut-back on 48 minutes after a spectacular run. And while Ria Percival failed to get the ball past Aurora Mikalsen after a penalty awarded when Tuva Hansen handled the ball, the World Cup co-hosts held on for their historic victory. The Jitka Klimková-led side are now looking to fortify their knockout stage slot by taking on bottom-placed Philippines in Wellington. Can they make it two straight.
The Philippines currently sit at the bottom of Group A with one loss and a goal difference of -2. Their World Cup debut saw them valiantly falling to Switzerland 0-2 at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, NZ. The Filipinas came near to scoring their first goal, but Katrina Guillou‘s strike was ruled offside. It became more painful as they were penalised on 43 minutes, with Ramona Bachmann converting to give La Nati the 1-0 lead. Twenty-one minutes later, Olivia McDaniel would be pummelled with close range shots, saving two but conceding the third to Seraina Piubel. The Allen Stajcic-led side had a learning experience with the game, and now they move on to face one of the host countries, which offers another challenge for the debutantes. Could they bounce back?
New Zealand v Philippines Prediction – Final Thoughts
New Zealand will be heavily favoured with majority of the crowd behind them, but the Philippines have proven that they are no slouch, especially with McDaniel between the sticks. In light of this, the Football Ferns should see tough opposition, but should manage to squeak in with a win against the feisty Filipinas. With that, let’s take a look at the prediction.
