Curacao vs El Salvador, Tuesday’s match for the first round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Group C, at the National Stadium Independence Park.
In one of two matches this Tuesday, which refers to the first day of the group stage of the 2019 Gold Cup, Group C, play the national team of Curacao and El Salvador.
The national team of Curacao arrives at this match of the first day of group C of this group stage of the Gold Cup 2019 to have their 2nd presence in a row in this competition, this after having achieved the qualification for the Gold Cup 2017.
After a long period in which the team did not get access to this competition (since 1973); the best performance of Curacao is a 3rd place in the very distant years of 1969 and 1963. The team comes from a good stage of recent games, considering that it has added 6 wins in the last 7 games.
The national team of El Salvador arrives at this match to compete for the 18th time in its history, in 25 editions, and its best performance is a 3rd place achieved in 1977.
Since that year the maximum that the team was able to reach was the quarter-finals, which even happened in the previous presence of the team in the Gold Cup in 2017. In terms of form, the team continues with 5 victories in their last 6 games played.
With two teams that will not be clearly the best in the race in this edition of the 2019 Gold Cup, in addition to having quality and more or less equivalent experience, to add to this the fact that this 1st game is fundamental, by which may represent (or not) as regards to the presence and qualification for the next phase. I think we will have a very balanced and with a few goals scored in a game that must be very physical from one side to the other.
