In the next meeting of the group stage of the OI-2020, the football players of the Dutch and Chinese national teams will compete. On whose side will the victory be in the face-to-face confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.
The Dutch team got a ticket to the OI in Tokyo after winning the qualification for the European Championship. For 10 matches of the qualifying stage, the team was able to win all the meetings, and on average scored 4.8 goals per game. Before the start of the OI-2020, the team played six matches, in which it was able to win four times. In the first game of the tournament, the European team defeated Zambia with a score of 10: 3, after which it drew a productive draw with Brazil – 3:3.
As for the Chinese national team, it is taking part in the OI-2020 for the fifth time. In 1996, the Chinese women's team managed to get the silver awards of the competition, but in Japan, the Chinese women are unlikely to be able to go far. In the first match at the Olympics, they lost with a crushing score 0: 5 to Brazil, after which they could not defeat the national team of Zambia (4:4), having painted a draw with it.
Statistics and figures:
- The Netherlands is the favorite of the match;
- "Orange" have a 3-match series without defeats;
- Chinese women can't win in the last 3 meetings;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a victory for the Netherlands in a penalty shootout (1:2 SP).
Most likely, the opponents will be able to show a productive game in this match as well. Taking into account the fact how effectively the opponents play in their meetings, I will bet on an increased total for a solid quote.
