Martinique vs USA: Prediction and Betting Tips
Martinique having to deliver a better defensive performance
Martinique are appearing in the Gold Cup for the seventh time. Their first participation was in 1993. Their best result was reaching the quarter-finals in the 2002 edition. In their first match against Canada, Martinique were off to a great start as they opened the scoring.
After 26 minutes though, Canada were up by three goals and Martinique were completely out of the game. Coach Mario Bocaly needs to adopt a better defensive strategy against the Americans, having lost their last two matches against them. The positive from those matches is that they lost 3-2 in the last one which is considered a good result.
Martinique Key points
- Martinique have lost three of their last four matches
- Martinique have conceded 2.75 goals per match in four games
- Martinique have clean sheets in just one of their last four matches
USA top favorites to secure their second win
The United States Men’s National Team has the best record in international football from the Concacaf region. They have appeared in the World Cup ten times and have reached the fourth position on the Fifa world ranking in 2006. Currently, they are 20th. This is the Americans’ 17th appearance in the Gold Cup in which they were crowned as champions six times.
Coach Gregg Berhalter is seeking his 21st victory with the US national team in 30 matches. His team played a relatively inexperienced Haiti side and managed to win by just one goal scored in the first eight minutes by Vines.
Berhalter likes to play offensive football but needs to have a better balance in defense and not allow their opponents too many chances as they did against Haiti who had ten goal attempts.
USA Key Points
- The USA have won eight of the last ten matches
- In the last ten matches, the USA have scored in nine
- The average goals scored by the USA in the last ten matches is 3.2
Martinique vs USA Prediction
In the last match against the USA, Martinique were tough opponents and lost narrowly 3-2. They would like to go a step further on Friday. Even a draw would mean a very positive result for Bocaly’s side.
The Americans have a very young team who play in the MLS. Coach Berhalter has done an amazing job with this team and are the top candidates to win the trophy. The US team needs to be more clinical in front of goal though as they converted just one of their 13 goal attempts against Haiti.
We can’t see the USA having any trouble in securing their second win with Vbet payong as low as 1.03 for a US win. We think Berhalter’s team will find their way to the goal and considering their average goals scored recently we will back over three goals in this match.
