AUS vs NZ Dream11 Prediction | Australia vs New Zealand FIH Pro League Match Preview | Fantasy Team & Team News

Australia will face New Zealand in what will be an anticipated fixture because of the Trans Tasman rivalry. The Aussies will host the game in Sydney tomorrow, where they won today’s match against Argentina. Australia have been in great form in the FIH Pro League recently and they have the most number of points in the tournament.

Their rivals, New Zealand, have had a contrasting campaign when compared to Australia. The Kiwis have the fewest points and they sit at the bottom of the table comprising 8 teams. It has been an abysmal tournament for New Zealand as they are yet to register their first win to kick start things in FIH Pro League.

The Kookaburras, on the other hand, have been brilliant in a great winning run after two early setbacks. The Aussies stuttered at the start where they lost the opening match in shootout before losing against Belgium. Today, they defeated Argentina in a game where they lead 3-0 before Argentina got 2 back, which were not enough.

Understandably, Australia will bring their top game into tomorrow’s match against New Zealand and on paper it looks like a game which could be one-sided. What’s more, the Aussies will be on their home turf and it makes it even harder for the visitors New Zealand. Despite all this, the black sticks will love their first win to be against their Trans Tasman rivals.
