match up to (someone or something)

(redirected from matched up to)

match up to (someone or something)

To be equal or similar to someone or something (in some feature, quality, characteristic, etc.). I knew I would never match up to my opponent in raw strength alone, so I tried to take advantage of his slower movements and reflexes. To be honest, I feel like Budapest matches up to Paris in terms of beauty and culture.
