Guadeloupe and Jamaica will square off in CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage action on Friday at the Exploria Stadium.
After the first round fixtures, Jamaica are second in the Group C standings behind Costa Rica, while Guadeloupe are third.
In their first game of the tournament, Jamaica secured an easy 2-0 win over Suriname with two first-half goals from forwards Bobby Reid and Shamar Nicholson.
Guadeloupe, who'd booked their place in the competition just last week after defeating Guatemala on penalties, were beaten 3-1 by Costa Rica in their opening fixture.
They conceded two early goals but managed to pull one back through Raphael Mirval. However, following a red card for Steve Loic Solvet, all hopes of a comeback faded away.

Guadeloupe vs Jamaica Prediction
Guadeloupe fought bravely against Costa Rica in their first game of the tournament but a red card in the second half derailed their game plan. Jamaica confidently beat Suriname in their first game and are the favorites here as well.
Given the history between the two teams and their current form, the odds of a clean sheet for Jamaica also look good.
