04-07-23 Daily Football Predictions : Canada vs Cuba

Betting Tips

When Canada plays Cuba at Shell Energy Stadium in the championship match, they will try to squeak into the 2023 Gold Cup quarterfinals. In a match of the World CONCACAF Gold Cup’s Group Stage – 3 round, Canada takes on Cuba.

Currently ranked 41st in the FIFA World Rankings and fourth in the aforementioned region. Canada is one of the top teams in the CONCACAF region. They are only outperformed by Mexico, the USA, and Costa Rica.

Canada vs Cuba

Even though Canada earned zero points during their World Cup match against Morocco, Croatia, and Belgium in Group F, they yet proved to be a strong squad and deserving of at least one or two points.

After the World Cup, they had a successful run in the Nations League, where they fell to the USA in the championship match by a score of 2:0. Unfortunately for their supporters, Canada’s top players were absent from this Gold Cup team.

Despite having the seventh-highest population in the CONCACAF region, Cuba is just the 16th-best team there, per the FIFA World Rankings. They won the CONCACAF Nations League B in the previous season despite playing against some extremely poor opposition. They played against superior teams after the Nations League and truly struggled.

After two consecutive draws with Guadeloupe and Guatemala, the Canucks enter the championship game knowing that players like Alphonso Davies, Jonathan David, and Cyle Larin will be greatly missed. In any case, Canada will likely attack Cuba with full force on Tuesday since they have a must-win scenario.

Contrarily, Los Leones del Caribe struggled mightily at the back in a 4-1 loss to Guadeloupe, which is certainly the biggest factor in our decision to back the Canadians. For the last group game, Cavafe and Aldair Ruiz are both suspended, making matters worse for the nominal visitors.

Verdict

The apparent favorite in this match is Canada, but they struggled in the tournament’s opening two games. They were heavy favorites in both games, drawing 2:2 with Guadeloupe and losing 0:0 to Guatemala. However, given that they are without a few important players, particularly up front, perhaps this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Despite picking just two points in two games, Canada is still in a strong position to advance because all they need is a victory over Cuba.

Cuba, on the other hand, has no chance of moving on to the next round and will essentially have no motivation to play in this match. In this Gold Cup, they were defeated in both games and only tallied one goal.

But even that goal against Guadeloupe was scored from the penalty spot. It is absurd to expect a goal from Cuba in this game considering that they only scored once in their previous four games (Gold Cup + friendly). Additionally, in the previous 11 head-to-head matches versus Canada, Cuba had only scored once.
