Guatemala looking to bounce back after opening game defeat

This is Guatemala’s 19th appearance in the Gold Cup and their best result is winning the tournament once in 1967 and earning second place in 1969. They also finished fourth in the 1989 and 1997 editions and reached the quarter-finals on two occasions in 2007 and 2011 … 

This year they are playing in Group A and were defeated by El Salvador in their only match so far in the tournament. They were completely dominated by Salvador in their opening match having just 31% of the ball Possession. Coach Rafael Loredo’s team had just one shot on goal all game. They need to have a much better performance in their second match.

Guatemala Key Points

  • Eight clean sheets were Guatemala’s record in their last ten matches
  • In their last ten matches, Guatemala failed to score in four matches
  • Guatemala have scored on average 1.8 goals per match in their last ten outings

Mexico will be looking for a first win

Mexico are one of the most successful football teams in the Concacaf region. They have won the Gold Cup 11 times in 23 appearances. Additionally, Mexico have appeared in the Fifa World Cup 16 times with their best results being reaching the quarter-finals in the 1970 and 1986 editions. Mexico have also played in the Fifa Confederation Cup and were crowned champions in 1999.

Coach Gerardo Martino’s team had a shaky start to their 2021 campaign as they were faced with a stubborn Trinidad and Tobago team that defended relentlessly. Mexico had 30 goal attempts with seven of them on target which were all saved by Trinidad and Tobago’s goalkeeper Marvin Phillips who frustrated the whole Mexican team with his saves.

Mexico key stats

  • Mexico have lost just one of their last ten matches
  • Zero goals were conceded in the last four games by Mexico
  • Mexico have scored in seven of ten matches 

Guatemala vs Mexico Prediction

There is no doubt who is the favorite to win in this match but Mexico suffered to score in their first match and they need to solve that. Coach Martino will make sure his team don’t fall into the same mistakes again and be more clinical in their finishing.

Guatemala put on a very weak display in their first much and they can’t expect to gt anything with that kind of level of play against Mexico. Nevertheless, they will surely play the same style as Trinidad and Tobago did and hope for a similar result.

Very few profitable markets for betting here. The most reasonable being the total goals market with Vbet offering 1.72 for under 3.5 goals. We will back that taking into consideration Mexoc’s difficulties in scoring in the first match.
