OLIMPIA V INTERNACIONAL
Olimpia, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 6-2 Copa Libertadores success versus Deportivo Tachira.
Fixtures involving Olimpia have usually been lively affairs recently with high scoring being a common characteristic. Over their past 6 clashes alone, the sum total of 27 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 4.5 goals per game) with 13 of these belonging to Olimpia.
In that game, Internacional managed 50% possession and 16 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. On the other side, Grêmio had 11 shots on goal with 2 on target.
The numbers tell their own story, and Internacional have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals in total. In defence, Colorado just haven’t been too solid at all. We will just have to find out if that trend can be sustained here.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
HAITI V CANADA
Haiti will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 1-0 Gold Cup defeat in their last game at the hands of United States.
A common characteristic of more recent Haiti games is the number of nil scores.
Taking their previous sextet of clashes before this one, in 6 of them a wager on both teams scoring would've been a loser. That sort of trend isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.
Canada will go into the meeting following a 4-1 Gold Cup win in the defeat of Martinique in their previous outing.
The trend of at least one team not managing to score in games featuring Canada has become fairly consistent in recent matches. A glance at their last 6 meetings reveals that it’s occurred 5 times. During these clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal aggregate of 1 while The Canucks have scored 30.
Prediction: Both teams to score
MARTINIQUE V UNITED STATES
Martinique will be looking for an improved result here following a 4-1 Gold Cup loss in their previous game against Canada.
At least three goals per game have been seen in 5 of the past 6 fixtures where Martinique have participated. Opposing sides scored 15 times in this period while Les Matinino bagged a total of 7. We will see if that trend can be continued on in this game.
United States will go into the encounter following a 1-0 Gold Cup win to defeat Haiti in their most recent match.
Indicating their partiality to action-packed encounters, goals have been celebrated 23 times in the previous six games in which United States have taken to the field, making it a mean average of 3.83 goals for each fixture. Opposing teams have got 4 of these goals.
Prediction: Under 3.5 Goals
