Canada: They are flying at group A ( Recent Form: W D W W D )

They are so far the discovery of this gold cup. He is only 16 years young and has experienced more in his life than probably all of his colleagues in the Canadian national team. The speech is, of course, by Alphonso Boyle Davies, the arrow-wise winger, who currently leads the scoreline list of the continental tournament of the CONCACAF zone with three goals. Born in Liberia, the small Alphonso fled early with his family across the Ivory Coast to Ghana where he grew up in a refugee camp. At the age of five, the Davies family moved to Canada, where he started playing football in Edmonton. Quickly the talent made the leap into various selection teams, so that among other things great Canadian clubs were attracted to him. Davies signed his first professional contract with the Vancouver Whitecaps' second team at the age of 15 and has since made it into the MLS cap team. 2017, the technically savvy offensive player will have 13 appearances in the Major League Soccer as well as seven games in the CONCACAF Champions League (two goals) in the statisitics. By the way, he was the first player born in the 2000s who made his debut in the highest American football league. Since 2016, Alphonso Davies has finally been Canadian citizen, which allows him to run for the national team while at the same time ensuring that "Soccer" is currently experiencing a real boom in the country of basketball or ice hockey.

Honduras: Two games without scoring goals ( Recent Form: D L D L D )

For the Honduran national team, this Gold Cup has been anything but planned. "Los Catrachos" lost to Costa Rica 1: 1, despite the fact that they were at least equal on long-range matches and deserved a point with a better chance of winning. This point was then "cheered" in the second group game, the quotes in this case have a meaning. A Colombian coach, Jorge Luis Pinto, was actually a victor against French Guiana. Honduras, however, missed the necessary strike force in the offensive and had to contend with the crunchy underdog with a goalless draw. It is therefore all the more surprising that the number 72 of the FIFA World Cup on the final day of the game still holds all the trumps in their own hands. In a win against Canada, the Central Americans would most likely be in the quarter-finals, with four points expected to be at least one of the top two. As already mentioned, a success with two goals difference would even lead to "La Bicolor" passing on the coming opponent from Canada. As a result, everything is still possible from Honduras to the group stage.

NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:

After all, the Canadians are still missing a point to reach the quarterfinals at the Gold Cup for the first time after 2009. However, there may also be a defeat, as the two top three qualify for the round of the last eight from the three groups. The starting point for Honduras, on the other hand, is slightly worse, because they need a victory to reach the K.O. round without the help of other groups. We therefore expect an offensive Honduran team, which has so far neither been able to call up their potential against Costa Rica nor against French Guiana. Los Catrachos are now waiting for a goal in three gold cup matches. Does this negative series end in the night from Friday to Saturday? Canada beat us in the first half against French Guiana (4-2) and the 1-1 draw against Costa Rica better than the Hondurans better placed in the World Cup. Only the question mark behind Alphonso Davies, the only 16-year-old temporary goalkeeper king of this gold cup, therefore leads to serious concerns on our part, betting on the alleged outsider and the higher bets. Canada is defensively vulnerable, as could be seen temporarily against French Guiana. Honduras, on the other hand, was struggling to score goals. Most likely we see the value under the bottom line even in betting on a draw, which may even reach both teams for reaching the quarterfinals. We also expect that this time both Canada and Honduras will be hit. Accordingly, quotas are also worth considering.
