Guatemala and Trinidad and Tobago estimates
Neither Guatemala, nor Trinidad and Tobago were able to score in the tournament. While Trinidad made a big impression in their first game against Mexico, their shortcomings were exposed by El Salvador.
Guatemala have not won against Trinidad and Tobago since 2005, and given their current situation, we don’t expect them to be a problem for the Soca Warriors.
Trinidad and Tobago should score their first goal of the tournament in this match and the chances of victory for them also look good.
Forecast: Guatemala 0: 1 Trinidad and Tobago
