More than just a match, a meeting between Haiti and Cuba, even in friendly has a special meaning. It's a duel over 80 years old in the CONCACAF zone. And, again, one more will go into history, that of March 24, 2019 at Sylvio Cator Stadium in the last game of the classification phase of the League of Nations. The challenge is none other than access to Ligue A by winning one of six places to be there and play the title at the premiere of the region.
Between Haiti and Cuba, there is no friendly match, every time they meet, these two nations of the Caribbean seem to have accounts to surrender and history to rewrite. The night of March 24, 2019 at Sylvio Cator stadium, the coaches: Marc Collat and Raul Mederos play big at the head of their selections: in the country, the defeat can not be forgiven them, considering the stakes which are of size with one of the six qualifying tickets for the A League to be taken, but also the historical importance of the meeting.
If the diplomatic relations of the two nations are going well, on the green rectangle it is simply the reverse. The two countries are far from an agreement and want each time to get the upper hand to create a gap. Nobody knows when, where and how the battle will stop between these two nations.
The rivalry between Haiti and Cuba is dated January 28, 1934. The results are still not rosy for the national bi-color even if the last was in his favor during the match of 3rd place of the Caribbean Cup of 2014 with at the head the disconnector of today, Marc Collat.
From 1934 to the present day, 29 matches are listed for a balance of 8 victories for Haiti against 9 defeats and 12 draws. The next will be exciting at the Sylvio Cator stadium on March 24.
