Puerto Rico Prediction – Can Puerto Rico get off to good start?

It’s only the second match of Group C and Puerto Rico’s first in this 3-nation group, but the hosts face a daunting task of trying to contain a rampant Guatemala outfit in this Tuesday night clash at the Estadio Juán Rámon Loubriel following Guatemala’s emphatic 10-0 win over Anguilla on Thursday night.

The hosts may well be fearing the worst even before a ball has been kicked as Puerto Rico have lost 11 of their last 12 matches in all competitions, while on home soil the hosts have captured just 2 wins out of their last 13 matches in their own backyard.

These rare wins were achieved against Grenada in a World Cup qualifier back in 2015 and the hosts needed extra time to see off Antigua & Barbuda in the Caribbean Cup a year later. Puerto Rico have faced Guatemala just once before which was in a CAG games tussle back in 1946, so a lot of water has passed under the bridge since these two teams last met.

Guatemala Prediction – Can Guatemala continue goal-spree?

As mentioned earlier, Guatemala embarked upon an incredible goal-spree against Anguilla as the visitors opened their account in Group C with an emphatic 10-0 win against the islanders, and the visitors will be looking for more of the same here on Tuesday night although the margin of victory may well be much smaller.

Although Guatemala have registered just 2 wins out of their last 7 matches in all competitions, their wins were recorded over Costa Rica and Anguilla, while the defeats were against a stronger pedigree of opponent with losses to Argentina, Ecuador, Israel, El Salvador and Paraguay.

Nevertheless, Guatemala start this inaugural CONCACAF Nations League in explosive fashion and doubtless they’ll be looking to grab another 3 points here which would place them in a very strong position as they’d also possess an impressive goal difference too.

The visitors have lost their last 5 away matches on the trot in all competitions though, so they’ll be keen to set the record straight on Tuesday night.


Key-Facts – Puerto Rico v Guatemala

  • Puerto Rico have lost 11 of their last 12 matches in all competitions
  • Guatemala won their opening match 10-0 v Anguilla
  • These two teams last met back in 1946 with Guatemala running out 4-1 victors


Betting Tips Verdict

Puerto Rico have been in poor form against lesser opposition and Guatemala will be brimming with confidence after their opening group win.
