Our prediction for this Gold Cup match:
After rolling over Guyana 4-0 in the semis, Guatemala will be looking to book their place at the Gold Cup finals when they face Guadeloupe at DRV PNK Stadium. Guatemala impressed in the triumph over Guyana, and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win the decider. Municipal attacker Jose Martinez is pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the semis.
Guadeloupe, on the other hand, booked their place in the Gold Cup qualification final by beating Bahamas 2-0. Jocelyn Angloma’s troops, though, will have a much bigger fish to fry in Wednesday’s football match. Guatemala have been impressive at the back in 2021, with the team eyeing their seventh consecutive clean sheet. Anyhow, Guatemala are more of a team than Guadeloupe, and we predict that the nominal hosts will prove their worth on the field.
