Haiti vs Costa Rica
CONCACAF Gold Cup
Date: Tuesday, 25 June 2019
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Harrison).
Both the teams have booked their berths in the next round and will be battling for the prospect of progressing as group champions when they lock horns on Tuesday at the Red Bull Arena for their third and final group fixture.
Haiti are currently second in the group, level on points with the group leaders Costa Rica trailing only on goal difference. They managed a narrow 2-1 win past first-timers Bermuda in their opening match, while they secured the win and the clean sheet in their second group fixture against the struggling Nicaragua.
Gustavo Matosas’s side went off to a flying start in their opening fixture, cruising past Nicaragua with four goals to their name. Their second round opponents Bermuda gave them a much tougher ninety minutes, with the match ending 2-1 in favour of Matosas’s men at the end of the final whistle.
The winner of the clash will have the safer chances of making it into the semi-finals as they will be squaring off against the runners up of Group A, which is most likely to be Canada.

Haiti vs Costa Rica Prediction
Although both the teams are currently on a winning run of form, with back to back victories, Costa Rica are the favourites to come out on top in their clash on Tuesday.
Marc Collat’s side have been enjoying success in their last three matches. Prior to the Gold Cup campaign they managed to down Guyana in an international friendly that ended 3-1 in the favour. However, it looks likely that his side will be succumbing to a defeat and finishing the group as runners up. This means that they are likely to face Mexico, who have been dominant throughout the tournament, in the quarterfinals.
Costa Rica are certainly the better of the two sides. They have managed to score six goals in their last two matches, while conceding just one.
Considering that Haiti have managed to find the back of the net more than once in their last three matches, we can bet on both the teams getting their names on the score sheet. The fixture is also certain to produce more than 2.5 goals, with the match swinging in favour of Costa Rica at the end of the ninety minutes.
