USA News and Form – Walk in the park for Berhalter’s Boys?

Despite going into the CONCACAF Gold Cup in poor form, USA are hoping to have a good tournament under new boss Berhalter. After losing 1-0 to Jamaica at Audi Field earlier in the month, USMNT then fell to a shock 3-0 defeat to Venezuela in Ohio in their last match.

Back in 2017, USA beat Jamaica in the Gold Cup final in Santa Clara to win their sixth title. After topping Group B ahead of the likes of Panama, Martinique and Nicaragua, the Stars and Stripes then edged past El Salvador and Costa Rica before beating the Jamaicans in the final. They will be hoping for something similar two years on.

Mexico, who are managed by Gerardo Martino, head into the competition as the bookies’ favourites, but America are right up there. Before a ball has been kicked in Group D, the States are priced at 15/8 to lift the trophy.

In truth, USA should claim an easy win in Minnesota on Wednesday. America will be looking for a big win to kick-start their Gold Cup campaign with a bang.

USA v Guyana Head to Head

Wednesday’s showdown in Minnesota will be the first ever meeting between these two nations.

 

Key-Facts – USA v Guyana

  • Guyana are making their first ever Gold Cup appearance
  • USA are the reigning champions
  • Both teams have lost their last two

 

Guyana News and Form – Golden Jaguars to suffer heavy defeat?

Just like USMNT, Guyana warmed up for this tournament with back-to-back defeats. Before losing 3-1 to Haiti last week, Johnson’s troops were beaten 1-0 by Bermuda. Meanwhile, Guyana have won three and lost three of their last six.

Guyana are expected to be the whipping boys in Group D, and it could be a tough couple of weeks in the States for Johnson and his side. The ridiculous odds of 100/1 for Guyana to win this one just proves how bigger underdogs they are.

Guyana, who are raked 177th in the FIFA world rankings, will be making their first ever Gold Cup appearance. Competing in this tournament will be an achievement in itself for the Golden Jaguars, but they won’t be expecting too much success during their time in America.

USA v Guyana Predictions

USA: Berhalter’s Stars and Stripes will want to kick off the defence of their Gold Cup crown with a convincing win. Nothing in the Guyana side will worry USA, so back the hosts to win -3 at 1/2. We could see a hatful of goals at Allianz Field as America look to fill their boots in what looks like an easy opener on paper. Therefore, I’m backing over 3.5 goals at 1/4.
