Both Chinese Taipei and New Zealand are looking to rebound from losses they suffered on the opening day of the inaugural edition of the Intercontinental Cup. The four-nation tournament held in India serves as a perfect substitute for friendly matches as each of four sides tend to find an adequate warm up ahead of the following challenges in their respective continental zones.

Chinese Taipei are led by the English-born manager Gary White who can’t quite be proud of the start his side made at the competition. White’s troops fell 0-5 to the host nation India in the curtain raiser on Friday afternoon at Mumbai Football Arena. Striker Sunil Chhetri was the man who made the difference netting a hat-trick on the day.

New Zealand grabbed a lead against Kenya on Saturday through left-winger Sarpeet Singh, but the African outfit managed to turn things around later on to win the match 2-1 at the end.

The two sides did not have the chance to take on each other previously.

Chinese Taipei vs New Zealand: Prediction

New Zealand head into this as massive favourites, but you should be careful with the potential high-stake bets here knowing that the All Whites bought the U23 squad for this event. The head coach Fritz Schmid is looking to take advantage of the occasion in order to prepare his men for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Nevertheless, we still expect the All Whites to dominate the pitch from the very first minute given that Chinese Taipei obviously lack quality to compete at this level. Since Gary White’s men allowed five goals on Friday, we do find the value in backing three or more goals in the game at the 1.55 odds. You can also have New Zealand to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at 1.85.
