The road to the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games starts here as women’s basketball powerhouse the Australian Opals take on their neighbours from across the Tasman, New Zealand. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 9pm (AEST).

Australia has dominated the tournament so far, cruising to top spot in their pool over Canada, England and Mozambique. In the other group, New Zealand have been no pushovers either.

With a chance to play off for a gold medal, there will be no shortage of motivation. With a vocal home crowd also behind the Australian’s, it should be an entertaining affair.

New Zealand will need to keep Liz Cambage under control if they are to keep up with the Aussies on the scoreboard. Charissa Leger-Walker is the youngest on the New Zealand team, but she has shown a lot of promise throughout the tournament. If she can keep that up she will be a great boost for the New Zealand team.

Prediction
With the home crowd behind them, as well as the overall talent in the Australian team, the tournament favourites should cruise comfortably to a spot in the gold medal game. New Zealand have a tough ask and despite the rivalry between the two countries, they look far too outmatched to pose a problem for the Opals.

Australia by 16.
