The Jamaica vs. Honduras match will be played on Tuesday, June 18, at the Independence Park, Kingston. This is the first round match of the Gold Cup. These two teams had been drawn in group C, along with El Salvador and Curacao.
In their previous ten meetings, Jamaica won three matches, Honduras had four wins, while three games ended in a draw. Honduras never defeated Jamaica on the road. Also, in seven out of those ten games we saw under 2.5 goals.
Jamaica is the co-host of the Gold Cup and they will try to capitalize on that and qualify for the knockout phase of the competition. They won seven out of their last 11 matches, but almost all of those wins came against much weaker opponents. However, in the last match before the Gold Cup played only a week ago, they defeated USA on the road by 1:0, which gives them huge self confidence before the start of the tournament.
Honduras was destroyed in the last match before the start of the Gold Cup against Brazil, by 7:0. The decision to play against Brazil is very interesting and we will see how that defeat affected their self confidence.
Jamaica is a favorite to win the upcoming match. We expect to see under 2.5 goals.
