Trinidad and Tobago vs USA
World Cup Qualifiers – CONCACAF
Date: Wednesday, 11th October 2017
Kick-off at 1:00 UK/ 2:00 CET
Venue: Ato Boldon Stadium (Couva).
The USA men’s national team need a point to qualify for the World Cup when they take the short trip to the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
T&T are out of the competition after managing just 1 win from their 9 matches so far, while losing the other eight. This could go down as one of the worst record in the hexagonal of Concacaf World Cup qualifying round.
On the other hand, USA are coming on the back of a convincing 4-0 win against Panama to end their three match win-less streak. The team has now put them in a commanding position to gain automatic qualification and must do with salvaging a point at the Ato Boldon Stadium.
The Stars and Stripes are win-less in their four away games in the competitions so far. Since falling 4-0 at Costa Rica, the team drew three on the bounce, all seeing 1-1 score-line.
Trinidad and Tobago vs USA: Head-to-head
The reverse of the corresponding fixture was a comfortable 2-0 win for the Stars and Stripes.
USA are unbeaten in their last five qualification matches against T&T with 4 wins and a draw. All they kept clean sheets in all of them.
Moreover, T&T have scored just once in their last 14 matches against USA in all competitions.
Also, USA have a good record while playing away at Trinidad and Tobago. They had won 5, drew 1 and lost 1 from 7 games. And please note that all those games are World Cup qualification fixtures.
Trinidad and Tobago vs USA: Prediction
T&T is a team at the rock bottom of morale after losing in 8 of their 9 games so far. There is some incentive to play for as they look not to become one of the worst teams to have played in the Hexagonal.
USA have not been convincing in away games and are yet to win one in the competition. Yet, the likes of Panama and Honduras are way above the grade of T&T and playing those two away from home are not easy for even the top teams.
The demand of the situation is a bit easy on the Stars and Stripes and they just need to avoid a defeat. Also, judging by their fine record in previous visits to Trinidad & Tobago, one must think they have what it takes to qualify with a win on Tuesday night.
Correct Score Prediction: 0-2 USA win for 7.00 odds at Betfair.
