Our prediction for this Gold Cup match:
Guadaloupe and Bahamas square off against each other at DRV PNK Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting Gold Cup qualifier. Guadeloupe impressed in the CONCACAF Nations League, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their fifth consecutive win. A man to watch in the home team will be Raphael Mirval, who scored a hat-trick in the 10-0 crushing of Turks and Caicos Islands.
Bahamas, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, and seeing that they are on a four-match goalless run, we are tempted to put our money on the Gwada Boys this time out. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in a competitive match. Guadaloupe defenders should have Lesly St. Fleur at bay as he has netted 10 goals in 22 appearances for the national team to date.
