Predictions and Tips for USA vs Canada Gold Cup
Kansas City will host the final game in Group B in the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup. This is where the United States and Canada face off for the top spot, and a more straightforward opponent in the quarterfinal.
Canada and the United States were able to justify their favorite’s tags in the first two games of their Gold Cup campaign, and now they will be fighting for the top spot at the end of the group phase.
The United States entered this competition with a squad that was significantly different from the one that won them Concacaf Nations League. As the European top stars such as Weston McKennie and Sergino Dest are not available, this new team is primarily made up of MLS players.
However, this does not stop the USMNT being among the top two silverware contenders.
Gregg Berhalter has the talent to lead this team. The game against Canada could be a test of how far the USA can go on home soil in this tournament.
After some decent results this year, the Canadians entered their first competition with a high score. They won seven matches in 2021. This included a double header against the Gold Cup semifinalists in 2019 Haiti.
Canada vs. the USA Head-to-head
- The United States has a positive relationship with Canada, having won 14 of the last 33 head-to-head affairs and losing 10.
- Two years ago, the teams won one game each in the Concacaf Nations League group stage.
- Only two of the 17 previous head-to-head encounters saw goals at both ends in any of their matches.
Prediction: Canada vs USA
Canada’s hopes of reaching the Gold Cup final have been severely hampered by Alphonso Davies’ left ankle injury in training. We do not think they are undervalued by the bookmakers, especially considering their outstanding record in 2021.
Canada is our main betting option. We therefore expect Canada to win at the 2.00 odds. Another option is to place a bet on Both Teams To Score – NO at 1.72 odds.
Predictions USA vs Canada
The 2021 Canadian Men’s National Team has already been a successful one. They reached the final stage in World Cup qualifying and were awarded the international services by Ayo Akinola, a budding MLS star. The Canadians can win or draw on Sunday to finish ahead of their American counterparts.
It is impressive that they are in this position without Alphonso Davies or Jonathan David. As a left-side creative force, Tajon Buchanan has been a great help to the Canadians. He was given the difficult task of replacing the 20-year old Davies, who is the best male Canadian soccer player of all time. Cyle Larin has been on a great run for Canada, leading the Gold Cup with three goals, taking his total to 10 in his eight games for Canada.
John Herdman, the coach, had achieved a similar win before Akinola switched to Canada. Stephen Eustaquio, a midfielder who played for Portugal as a youth level player, declared for the team. Eustaquio has already scored two goals for Canada at the Gold Cup, but he will be missing this game due to yellow card accumulation. Canada’s men’s soccer squad has a new team, and they are proving to be a true strength.
This team is CONCACAF’s most formidable, and they will have to prove their worth. Despite being much more skilled and deeper than Canada’s, the Gold Cup team is vulnerable because they have chosen to use a heavily MLS-based roster. The tournament began with a disappointing 1-0 win against Haiti. However, the U.S. performed much better in a decisive victory over Martinique. It became apparent that they were trying to match Canada’s goal differential.
Although their 6-1 win was expected, Daryl Dike’s breakout was an incredible victory. Dike, who is possibly the most popular name in American soccer, scored his first goal competitively for the U.S. and added another. He then almost got the hat trick. Dike will again be the center point of the USA’s match against Canada. However, Les Rouges’ three man backline should be able to stop Dike’s extraordinary movement. His finishing is so precise that he will only need a second to score again.
The USMNT and Canada have been evenly matched in the first two games of the group stage. In a head to head matchup, it’s not unreasonable to expect this to continue.
