First up is Nicaragua who looks to turn around a brutal start after falling 4-0 to Costa Rica. They now draw Haiti who won 2-1 over Bermuda last time out, the country’s first-ever Gold Cup win. Nicaragua needs more from attacking players like Jorge Betancur and Renato Punyed if they are to get the win.

The nightcap is Costa Rica and Bermuda with the former hoping to secure a place in the knockout stage of the tournament with a win. Keylor Navas is not at the Gold Cup but Costa Rica still has a strong, first-choice squad led by Celso Borges who was fabulous in the win over Nicaragua. While this match appears to be a mismatch, Bermuda has logged goals in two of their last five games against Costa Rica, so there could be some excitement if the favorites aren’t fully focused.
