Nicaragua vs Haiti
CONCACAF Gold Cup
Date: Friday, 21 June 2019
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
Nicaragua are certainly off to a nightmarish start in the CONCACAF Gold cup this time after being whopped by Costa Rica in their opening group fixture. Of course, a win was never likely against the latter, although they would have hoped for a much more subtle score line.
The game was put to bed even before the teams went off for the break, and it could well be the case when they take on their next opponents Haiti on Friday at the Toyota Stadium for the second round of group clashes.
The latter, on the other hand, had a much more positive start to their campaign, with a win against Bermuda in their opening clash. Although the squad was trailing by a goal at the break, a Frantzdy Pierrot inspired comeback with two goals in the second half was enough to clinch them that game.
Henry Duarte’s men are unlikely to fancy their chances of getting the win against their counterparts on Friday. Considering that they managed just one shot on target in the entire ninety minutes in their previous encounter, they will certainly have their work cut out for them in the rest of the campaign if they do not pull it together.

Nicaragua vs Haiti Predictions
Marc Collat’s men are the favorites to come out on top when they take on Nicaragua in the second round of group fixtures in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
With zeroes wins in their last three matches, Juan Barrera and his teammates are certainly going through a very rough patch. Apart from not getting the win, they have also conceding a colossal 10 goals in those fixtures alone. Their recent loss against Costa Rica points out the obvious, which is that they still have a lot of work to do before they can take it to the big stage.
Their opponents, on the other hand, have been enjoying a much better run of form. They are currently on a two-match winning streak and could well extend it to three when they take on Henry Duarte’s side.
The match, on Friday, however, is unlikely to be as lopsided as the previous two have been for the latter. There is a chance that they will get off the mark with a goal but not more.
The full-time result of this Gold Cup group stage encounter is certain to go in favour of Haiti.
