Concacaf Gold Cup action continues with an interesting tie in Group C.  Portland is the venue for Haiti v Honduras.

Costa Rica are in a rich vein of form and go into this tournament as one of the favourites. Since mid-January of 2012 Costa Rica have played 15 games and have 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeat.  A really impressive run of form, they have had a handful of easy games; beating Guyuna, Belize and Nicaragua fair enough. However in the results are wins over El Salvador (twice) Honduras (twice) and Jamaica. A draw with Mexico in Azteca is impressive too, only a loss in America blights the copy book. In the 15 game run Costa Rica scored 23 goals with just 5 conceded. They have not let a goal past them in 5 games and have kept 11 clean sheets in the 15 games.

Cuba have started to gradually improve over the last 18 months or so.  Prior to the last year and a half the side were in awful form, going 14 games without a win and hardly troubling the scorer. In November 2012 the game clicked though and a 1-1 home draw with improving Panama was followed by 5-0 win over Suriname which gave them some belief. Over the last 9 games they have 4 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats which is a real improvement.  Wins over Jamaica and Haiti prove the turnaround in the Caribbean Islands fortunes.


Costa Rica are playing really well at the moment, probably their best football for a good few years. Results are superb and defensively they are solid. Cuba have improved out of sight over the past 18 months but are still way below the level of the big guns in this confederation. The main problem for Cuba is their lack of a professional league, all the players remain amateur and the league has no foreign talent.  This game usually results in a Costa Rica win with 11 from 16 going the way of Los Ticos with just 1 win for Cuba. In this game the odds are very short indeed with 1.16 an average price. Due to Costa Rica’s amazing clean sheet record (11 in last 16) and the huge gulf in class I take Costa Rica Win To Nil (1.80 bet365)
