The 2019 Gold Cup will kick off this Saturday and two games will be playing for this kickoff. At first, Canada will face Martinique at 7:30 pm (Haitian time) and in a second time, Cuba will meet a huge opponent in this case Mexico at the time of 9:30 pm (Haitian time)
The meeting between the Canadiens and the Martinique will be the first dish to be savored for this new edition of the Gold Cup. These two have already met three times in the gold cup with a win in favor of Canada (1-0 in 2015) and two draws (2-2 in 1993 and 1-1 in 2002). One thing is certain, it will be a party with the scent of revenge for Martinique.
Without a doubt, Mexico is one of the favorites of the competition. Champions 10 times, the foals of Gerardo Martino will have a fairly easy prey, Cuba. However, the Cubans will try to create general surprise or avoid a stinging defeat.
It is worth mentioning that according to the Concacaf, Martinique is the oldest team in the competition with an average age of 28 , 65 years old.
