Jamaica will play against Panama in the quarterfinals of the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. 

Panama finished the group stage in second place with 6 points. In their previous outing, Panama were defeated by the USA. 

The result was expected from Panama as they lacked the quality to compete with the US. During the loss, Panama only had 37% of the ball and had only 1 shot on target. The passing was also very poor from Panama as they had a pass accuracy of only 77%. 

Outside of the loss to the USA, Panama have had a good tournament as they defeated Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago. Panama have been outstanding while attacking as they have scored 6 goals in this tournament. Panama have had multiple goal scorers in this tournament which is a positive for the side as it indicates that many players are in good form. This is expected to be a tough match for Panama as they will be playing a very talented Jamaica side. 

Looking at Jamaica, the team remains unbeaten after they topped Group C. Jamaica won 5 points during the group stage. Jamaica only managed 1 win during the group stage. 

In their previous match, Jamaica only managed a 1-1 draw against Curacao. It was a disappointing result for Jamaica as they conceded the equalizer in injury time. Shamar Nicholson scored Jamaica’s goal during the draw. The defense has been a problem for Jamaica as they have conceded 3 goals in their 3 games. Considering Panama’s attack, Jamaica must improve their defense. 

This match between Jamaica and Panama is set to play at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 

While Jamaica topped Group C, I have some concerns regarding this team’s defense. Conceding against teams like Curacao and Honduras shows that Jamaica have a weak defense and I see that costing them in this match. Panama have been outstanding when going forward and they showed their ability as they scored freely against Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana. Panama look like a strong team and I see them being good enough to defeat Panama and secure a semifinal position. 

Pick:
Panama
