Martinique vs Mexico
CONCACAF Gold Cup
Date: Monday, 24th June 2019
Kick off at 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: Bank of America Stadium (Charlotte).
Mexico are currently on a goal-scoring spree in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, amassing ten goals in their last two matches alone while conceding just one. They will certainly be looking at making it three out of three wins when they take on Martinique at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte on Monday in the third round of group fixtures.
The Mexicans thrashed their opening opponents Cuba by a whopping 7-0 scoreline before cruising past Canada in their most recently concluded fixture, which ended at 3-1.
Their counterparts began their campaign with a below-par performance against Canada and finished the match with four goals in the back of their own net. Mario Bocaly’s side certainly stepped up their game in the second round clash against Cuba, coming out on top with three goals to their name while conceding none.
His side are currently level on points with Canada in the table while their counterparts are at the helm with a three-point advantage. Mexico are definitely sizing up as one of the serious contenders for the cup this time and could walk away with the trophy if they continue their run of form.

Martinique vs Mexico Prediction
Gerard Martino’s side are certain to come out on top in the clash against Martinique on Sunday.
His men are currently on a five-match unbeaten streak, and they do not look keen on slowing down any time soon. The squad will be looking to get their hands on the cup this time after coming really close to clinching it in the previous edition. Andres Guardado scored a brace in their previous fixture and could well find the back of the net against Mario Bocaly’s men.
The latter have just one loss in their previous five fixtures. That statistic alone, however, is not going to cut it against their robust counterparts who have been consistent in scoring three goals or more in each of their last six matches.
We can certainly count on the latter scoring a couple more down the other end and ultimately take the win at the end of the ninety minutes. A clean sheet looks likely for the taking as well.
