Our prediction for this Gold Cup match:
DRV PNK Stadium in Miami will host the Gold Cup qualifier between Bermuda and Barbados, the two teams who face each other for the first time since March 2018, when they met in a friendly. Back then the two teams played out a goalless draw, and yet another low-scoring affair is on the cards on Saturday.
Bermuda played out a 1-1 draw with Cayman Islands in their last competitive match, and seeing that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Barbados’ previous four games, this betting option should be considered. It has to be noted that experienced players Dante Leverock, Nahki Wells, Reggie Lambe, and Milan Butterfield all returned to the Bermuda national team for the Gold Cup qualifiers. A man to watch in the away team will be Swindon Town attacker Hallam Hope.
Highlighted Player (Nahki Wells):
Born on June 1, 1990 in Hamilton, Bermuda, Nahki Wells is a 170-cm-tall attacker who plays for the Bermuda national team. Wells is a product of Dandy Town Hornets youth academy and he continued playing for the Bermudan side at senior level.
The experienced striker played for the likes of Bermuda Hogges, Eccleshill United and Carlisle United before joining Bradford City in 2011. After spending three seasons at Valley Parade, Nahki Wells signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with Huddersfield Town in the winter of 2014. In 2017 he moved to Burnley, but he played for Queens Park Rangers as a loan footballer in the 2018/2019 season.
Speaking of his international career, Wells made his debut for the Bermuda national team in 2007. He scored his first ever goal for Bermuda in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Trinidad and Tobago. The Burnley man will represent the Gombey Warriors at the 2019 Gold Cup.
