Three and one

Those numbers represent the number of wins each team needs to claim the 32nd America’s Cup, and shows the size of the task ahead of the Kiwi team.

With the score in the America’s Cup Match favouring Alinghi at 4-2, Emirates Team New Zealand must win the next three races if it is to bring the America’s Cup back to Auckland. Alinghi, on the other hand, has a much easier task. It has three chances to pick up the one win it needs to make its defence successful.
