There is no doubt that this is easy match for betting. The difference in quality is huge. Players from New Zealand play in the English league, and I think no one has heard of a football player from Tahiti. Worn-out phrases that today everyone is playing football in this case does not apply. Look at the table says it all. By switching Australia to Asian qualifications, in Oceania there is only one even remotely quality team and that is New Zealand. Guest should win easily by two or more goals difference.All less would be a big surprise. Odd is solid considering difference in class and quality.

Don't fully agree with the above. The island teams are improving, most notably New Caledonia who managed to knock the All Whites out of the Oceania Nations Cup in June. It is significant that, on that occasion, the All White's two Premiership stars, defenders Ryan Neilson (QPR) and Winston Reid (West Ham) were out with injury and this is the case once again (but they will probably feature in the reverse fixture on Tuesday). Their absence will mean NZ will probably revert to a 4-man back line rather than the 3-man option that served them so well in their World Cup campaign.
Thati are no mugs, as their victory in the Oceania Nations Cup attests (1-0 over NC in the final) and while their start in the WCQ has not been good - 2-0 away loss to the Solomon Islands and a 4-0 thumping at home by the impressive New Caledonian team - I do not think they wil roll over and will ask NZ some questions, especially in defence.
I still think that New Zealand will win, but at odds that short it will not have my money riding on it.
