Guatemala will take on Mexico in the Group A match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup on 15th July at the Cotton Bowl.
Guatemala vs Mexico Team Preview
Guatemala took Curacao’s position in the CONCACAF Gold Cup when the latter was forced to withdraw due to a number of positive Covid-19 instances. They lost their opening game against El Salvador 2-0 after resisting for 81 minutes.
They are a tactically sound team that will do well to manage the relentless pressure that the Mexicans will apply, and they will be pushed to the limit by Mexico.
Mexico overpowered Trinidad and Tobago but couldn’t find the back of the net. With the exception of the most important component of the game, the scoreboard, the Mexicans were superior in almost every way.
They’ll go up against one of the tournament’s most tight defenses, and they’ll have to find out how to disintegrate the Guatemalans, who in most scenarios may have as many as 10 players behind the ball.
