||Go with or match?
Merriam-Webster (to match)
3 a (1) : to pair up or put in a set as possessing equal or harmonizing attributes : combine as being suitable or congenial <matched the tie and the shirt>
I was prepared to say that "to match" meant to have the same color, but M-W states otherwise, that it's enough to "possess equal or harmonizing attributes". So, a necktie and a shirt don't have be of the same color "to match"; they only need to be of colors that harmonize.
In short, there doesn't appear to be a difference between the two verbs.
