Qatar playing as underdogs for the first time

Qatar’s adventure in the Gold Cup continues after the Fifa World Cup 2022 hosts defeated El Salvador in the quarter-finals 3-2 o set up a semi-final showdown with the USA. Felix Sanchez’s team enter this match as the underdogs for the first time in the tournament after winning three of their four matches and drawing the other.

An amazing attacking style of play adopted by coach Sanchez has seen his team scoring 12 times in four matches. The Maroons have some defensive issues to address though as they have conceded five goals so far in the competition three of them against lowly Panama in their opening match. Nonetheless, Qatar have shown great maturity and will be a tough opponent against the USA.

Qatar Key Points

  • Qatar are undefeated in 11 games
  • The average goals scored by Qatar in the last ten matches is 2.6
  • In their last ten matches, Qatar were able to score in all of them

The USA aiming for an 11th final appearance in the Gold Cup

The US men’s football team scraped through their quarter-final match against Jamaica through an 83rd-minute goal by Hoppe. Coach Berhalter’s team had the better of the ball possession in the match. The Jamaicans though had good scoring chances to cause an upset with the Us team’s defense allowing their opponents to have five shots at goal.

The victory in the semi-final extended the USMNT’s winning streak to five matches. If the USA grab a win and reach the final of the Gold Cup, that will be their eighth final in the last nine Gold Cup editions dating back to 2005. Berhalter has an impressive 9-1 win / loss record in the Gold Cup since taking charge of the US team in 2018.

USA Key Points

  • The average number of goals scored by the USA in the last ten matches is 3.3
  • The USA have scored in all of their last ten matches
  • Nine wins were recorded in the USA’s last ten matches

Qatar vs USA Prediction

This will be the first-ever meeting between the two teams. Both teams have shown great performances and are strong contenders to win the title. The US team is the favorite to win since they have won the competition six times and are much more experienced.

Qatar though will not be easy bait. Coach Sanchez has shown very offensive football and taking into consideration that they are playing in the Gold Cup as preparation for the World Cup and have nothing to lose, we think the Maroons will play to win and keep their offensive style of play.

A USA win has an odds of 1.40 at Vbet. The halftime score market looks interesting. Vbet is offering odds of 2.07 for a draw at the interval. It is a likely outcome since both teams might be cautious at the beginning of the game.
