Guatemala v Guadeloupe: Group D - 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup
Guatemala had beaten the British Virgin Islands 3-0 in their first meeting

British Virgin Islands host Guatemala at the A. O. Shirley Recreation Ground in Road Town on Saturday in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The sides have been drawn alongside Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Dominica in Group E.

Ranked 207th in the world, British Virgin Islands are one of the five weakest sides in the world. They managed to reach the second round of these qualifers after overcoming 208th-placed US Virgin Islands 4-2 on penalties, as the minnows drew 1-1 on aggregate.

On the other hand, Guatemala began their second round of the qualifiers with a 6-0 drubbing of Dominica on Wednesday. Alejandro Galindo struck a brace, whereas Allen Yanes, Rubio Rubin, Jose Martinez and Jose Morales all scored apiece to give the Chapines a thumping opening game victory.

It also extended their unbeaten run to three games in all competitions, having begun the 2024 calendar year, with back-to-back defeats. Luis Fernando Tena's side will be looking to build on this momentum when they take on the British Virgin Islands in their second qualifier game, followed by which is a friendly game to reigning world champions Argentina.

British Virgin Islands vs Guatemala Prediction

Guatemala have slowly picked up the pace following a turbulent start to 2024, and their opening qualifier win, a 6-0 shellacking of Dominica, added more wind to their sails. British Virgin Islands lack the talent and experience to compete against them, and could be in for another heavy loss, just as they did over three years ago.
