Costa Rica vs Guatemala match preview

Both of these two are preparing for this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, so will either claim victory in this friendly in Carson?

Costa Rica are one of the strongest teams in this region, qualifying for last year’s World Cup via the inter-confederation play-offs.

Last time out though, los Ticos missed out on a place in the Nations League Finals, suffering a surprise 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Panama.

Luis Fernando Suárez’s team will kick off their Gold Cup campaign with a rematch against Panama in Fort Lauderdale on 26 June, before taking on El Salvador and a prelim winner, probably Martinique/Suriname.

This week, Costa Rica will play two friendlies, also meeting Ecuador in Philadelphia on Tuesday, so will they claim victory here?

Guatemala meantime will be hoping to end their 12-year wait for a Gold Cup winner later this summer.

Los Chapines are in a group alongside Canada, Cuba and a prelim winner, most-likely Curaçao, so will fancy their chances of getting out the group, despite their recent poor record.

Luis Fernando Tena’s team have already been busy this month, with this the third of four friendlies they’re featuring in.

First, Guatemala were beaten 2-0 by Mexico in Mazatlán last mid-week before, on Sunday, __________________________________ Trinidad & Tobago.

In this friendly at Dignity Health Sports Park, Costa Rica are likely to have too much quality.
