Haiti vs Costa Rica, Tuesday’s match for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Group B, at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
The third round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup will put Haiti face-to-face with Costa Rica. It’s already this Tuesday, June 25, 2019. With kick-off scheduled for 01:30 at the arena Red Bull Arena (Harrison).
Both teams will be fighting for the prospect of progressing as group champions.
Analysis of Haiti
Haiti is currently second in the group, tied in points, with the leaders of the Costa Rica group losing only in the goal balance. They secured a 2-1 win over Bermuda in the first game while securing the win without conceding a goal in their second game against Nicaragua.
Analysis of Costa Rica
The formation of Gustavo Matosas began flying on the opening day, beating Nicaragua with four goals. Their opponents on Matchday 2, Bermuda, gave more fighting but the game ended 2-1 in favor of Matosas’ men at the end of the final whistle.
The winner of the match will have safer chances to reach the semi-finals, as they will be facing Group A runners-up likely to be Canada.
Clashes between the two teams
The teams met on eight occasions with 3 draws and 5 wins for Costa Rica. Haiti has never recorded a victory against Costa Rica. The last meeting ended 1-0 in favor of Costa Rica.
Betting recommendation for the game
Although both teams are in a winning shape with consecutive wins, Costa Rica is favorites to win in Tuesday’s showdown. Despite the success of the team of Marc Collat (victory in the last three games), Costa Rica is certainly the better of the two. They have managed to score six goals in their last two matches while conceding only one. For these reasons, I believe in a victory for Costa Rica
