Gold Cup 2021: USA vs. Canada: Preview, Predictions, Where to watch, and Odds

The two biggest rivals of America face each other this Sunday for the 3rd round of the Gold Cup group stage. Although both teams have already secured the tickets for the quarterfinals, they will play to take the lead of Group B. With more goals scored in the first two games, Canada would be happy even with a draw to be the 1st of Group B. Meanwhile, for the USA, the only acceptable result is the win. Les Rouges comes in this match after winning 4-1 against Martinique and Haiti. A great performance by John Herdman's team, which continues their winning series with eight wins in a row. On the other side, the USA destroyed Martinique in Children's Mercy Park (Kansas City) 6-1. It was an easy win from the USA, which scored within 14 minutes with D. Dike, and doubled their lead with an own goal from S. Camille. In the second half, they scored four more goals to achieve a 6-1 win. However, Canada is far better than Martinique, and for this, for the USA would not be an easy match. Both teams, released from the pressure of qualification, will give us a spectacular game tonight. We invite all to not miss this derby match tonight at 23:00 (CET).

Head to head matches

The rivalry of these two teams dates since 1885 in a friendly match, where Canada won 0-1. Since then, both teams have played 37 games. USA leads with 17 wins against ten wins of Canada, and ten other games have finished in a draw. The last time both teams encountered each other was in CONCACAF Nations League group stage in 2019. The match played in Canada finished 2-0 for Les Rouges, while the retuning match in USA finished 4-1 for The Yanks.

Injury updates

Herdman took the best of his team in the first two matches, playing with the same formation 3-5-2. All players look to be fully fit to play tonight, as any injuries are reported from staff. The same situation occurs in the USA camp. They have no players missing in this match too, and it is expected to be a hard-fought match.
