Ask Ebaby! Teachers
I have been thinking about a word which I have forgotten. The word simply means that a team underestimate an opponent. A team is treated the opponent obliviously because it ranks much lower.

This is a fantastic vocabulary question!
There are several synonyms you could use for “underestimate an opponent.” Perhaps, you’re thinking of one of these words?
underdog = person or team that other people think is not good enough to win
dark horse = unexpected winner
write off = assume a person / team won’t win
disparage = describe something as weak or bad
cocky = overconfident in success
presumptuous = arrogantly assuming something without knowing all the facts
I hope one of these words is the word you’re thinking of!
