Panama vs USA, Wednesday’s match for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Group D, at the Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas, United States
Panama and the US will face a game and count for the third day of group D of the CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage next Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at Children’s Mercy Park (Kansas City).
Analysis of the USA
The Americans dominated the CONCACAF Gold Cup this year, with all their victories coming in a very convincing way. In the most recently played game against Trinidad and Tobago they scored 6 goals and suffered none.
Aaron Long and Gyasi Zardes each got two goals, as Christian Pulisic and Paul Arriola added the icing on the cake with one goal each.
The team managed impressive twenty-seven goal attempts, of which twelve were on target, and also retained most of the ball possession.
Analysis of Panama
Panama faced Guyana on their second day in the group and managed to win 4-2 in their favor at the end of the ninety minutes.
Gregg Berhalter’s men are now in charge of the group with six points, while their opponent is second, losing only because of the difference of goals.
Clashes between the two teams
The Americans lost only twice against Panama in all competitions. Their last meeting ended 3-0 in favor of the USA.
Betting recommendation for the game
In a normal game it would be unlikely that Panama will impact the US winning streak and will likely maintain its own unbeaten two-game series. But as this is a game where teams have moved on to the next phase, you might expect them to opt for a more offensive style of play. My recommendation is both scores yes, I think under these conditions it has a huge value.
