Jamaica vs Honduras
CONCACAF Gold Cup Group C
Date: Tuesday, 18 June 2019
Kick-off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: Independence Park (Kingston).
Jamaica went till the final of the last Gold Cup after some great performances along the way and had to bow out against favorites and champions, the US. The team had a great run that they met three previous champions in each of their three knockouts, and defeated two of them.
After qualifying as the runner-up from Group C, they were pitted against 2000 champions Canada in the Quarter Final, where they recorded a 2-1 win. And then in the semis, they locked horns with six-time champions Mexico, where the winner and the sole goal came right at the end in the 88th minute.
Against the United States, in the final, they had equalized the opening goal of the rivals but had no time to respond to the 88th-minute goal by the opponent. The final scoreline was 2-1, and Jamaica lost the chance to lift the elusive cup.
Honduras had taken the harder route of being amongst the best third-placed teams and got into the Quarters. But in the last eight, they had to deal with the Mexicans, where the team conceded an early goal and trailed throughout.
They see an opportunity to qualify once more to the next stage along with Jamaica, as the other two teams in the group are El Salvador, and Curacao.

Jamaica vs Honduras Prediction
Had luck sided with them, Jamaica could have been the defending champions this time. This time around, the team will be particular to start on the right note, and considering they are facing their toughest group challenger right away in the first match, a win will set them on the right course to top the group.
They won three of their last five fixtures and was unbeaten in ten of their last thirteen. On the other hand, Honduras is winless in their last four games and was so in nine of their last ten. Also, just the last match-day, they lost 7-0 to the Brazilians.
Also, Honduras is winless in their last seven games away from home and could register just one win in their last such 14 attempts. As things stand, it’s building up to be a win for the Jamaicans.
Finally, Jamaica won the last time these two met, and it’s been six years since they actually lost an h2h encounter. Also, the last time these two locked horns in a Gold Cup game, the Jamaicans recorded a win.
Expect Jamaica to have a tough outing, but count on them to grind out a win too.
