CONCACAF Gold Cup Group B: Jamaica v El Salvador, Canada v Costa Rica
Group B leaders Jamaica will look to wrap up top spot when they take on the threat of El Salvador as the CONCACAF Gold Cup continues.
Meanwhile, in the same pool, rock-bottom nation and co-hosts Canada will contest Costa Rica, who are competing with El Salvador for qualification, most likely from second position.
Jamaica v El Salvador
The Reggae Boyz sit comfortably at the summit of Group B after overcoming Canada with a last-gasp winner from skipper Rodolph Austin, sending his side to top position.
Jamaica are 11/2 with Coral to secure another victory over third-placed El Salvador with both sides getting on the scoresheet.
The dominant Jamaicans opened their campaign with a draw against Costa Rica and just another point will be enough to clinch top spot in Group B, with a stalemate available at 9/4.
Houston Dynamo forward Giles Barnes will again be a key danger towards El Salvador, and the London-born MLS marksman is 6/1 to open proceedings this time out.
Their opposition, though, possess enough firepower capable of causing a problem, and are 5/2 to secure an upset. El Salvador’s Irwin Herrera can be an attacking threat and is 2/1 to slot home anytime in his latest outing.
Canada v Costa Rica
With Jamaica almost assured of a place in the next round, Costa Rice will be aiming for a simple triumph over bottom side Canada in order to challenge for second place. The Costa Ricans are 15/8 to win to nil, while Canada are a 3/1 chance to grab their first victory in this latest match-up.
Arsenal forward Joel Campbell is sure to have a say for Costa Rica and is 2/1 to net anytime, while his strike partner and recent Sporting Lisbon signing Bryan Ruiz is 6/1 to open the scoring.
The former Fulham frontman previously completed a switch to the Portuguese Lions, a move which saw him become new boss Jorge Jesus’ first major signing at the club, with his deal also sensationally including a £43m buy-out clause.
Though, his attention will be fully on leading his Costa Rica side to victory in Group B, with a win over Canada potentially sending them through.
