Our prediction for this Gold Cup match:
Toyota Stadium will host the Group A game between Guatemala and Trinidad & Tobago, the two teams who have yet to record a win at the 2021 Gold Cup. Guatemala are stuck at the bottom of the table, and seeing that they missed out on a place in the quarter-finals, home win should not be considered. All Santis, De Leon, Betancourth, Lom, and Alvarez are pushing for a start.
The Soca Warriors, on the other hand, face a must-win situation in their last group game, and seeing that htey want this win more than Rafael Loredo’s troops, there is a big value in betting on the nominal visitors. Keep in mind, though, that Trinidad defender Tristan Hodge is likely to miss the game through injury. In their last meeting at the Gold Cup finals Trinidad & Tobago defeated Guatemala 3-1.
