St Lucia Prediction – Can St Lucia record back-to-back wins?

Prior to this ‘winner takes all’ relegation clash at the bottom of Group B, Tuesday night’s hosts, St Lucia handed themselves a lifeline on the weekend when they registered a desperately needed 1-0 home win over 2nd placed Dominican Republic to move them to within 1 point of their relegation rivals, Montserrat.

They hold home advantage again for this important fixture and although their campaign has overall been pretty average, St Lucia still have a chance of avoiding relegation with all three points here this evening.

Previous defeats to group leaders El Salvador (home and away) and away at Dominican Republic were tough fixtures but they can take heart from the fact that they earned a point in the earlier corresponding fixture against tonight’s opponents, Montserrat in a 1-1 draw on the road.

Results on home turf have also improved in recent times as St Lucia have won 3 of their last 5 matches in all competitions with earlier wins over Aruba and Dominica as well as the aforementioned victory against Dominican Republic.

Montserrat Prediction – Can Montserrat avoid defeat/relegation?

Montserrat’s CONCACAF Nations League campaign has virtually been the exact opposite to that of their hosts, St Lucia, as the visitors recorded an opening Group B 2-1 home win against Dominican Republic but have since stumbled to 4 matches without a win.

The results that followed that opening win have alternated between draws and defeats as they picked up points in 1-1 and 0-0 draws at home with St Lucia and away at Dominican Republic respectively, but have also suffered defeats to El Salvador home and away.

With just 3 away wins out of their last 14 matches on their travels in all competitions, the pressure is now well and truly on Montserrat to at least avoid defeat here, but having lost 10 of these 14 away fixtures, their League B future still hangs in the balance.

The visitors have failed to score in 8 of these 14 matches along with keeping just 3 clean sheets so they may well be up against it in St Lucia to get the necessary result to stay afloat, and 9 of these 14 matches have also seen them concede 2 goals or more.


Key-Facts – St Lucia vs Montserrat

  • St Lucia have won 3 of their last 5 home matches in all competitions
  • Montserrat have won just 3 of their 14 away matches in all competitions
  • St Lucia won the last meeting at home against Montserrat 3-0 in 2004


Betting Tips Verdict

St Lucia might just sneak victory here and achieve a last-gasp reprieve from relegation but back the hosts with the handicap in this one.
