ANALYST

Guatemala take on Trinidad and Tobago in their third and final group stage fixture of the CONCACAF Gold Cup at Toyota Stadium on Sunday.

Guatemala are yet to score a goal in the competition and suffered 2-0 and 3-0 losses to El Salvador and Mexico respectively in their first two fixtures.

Trinidad and Tobago have also not yet opened their account in the competition and were beaten 2-0 by El Salvador in their previous outing.

El Salvador have already qualified for the next round from Group A. Trinidad and Tobago's hopes of qualification rely on an unlikely set of events. They need to score at least three goals and also hope that Mexico lose to El Salvador by a three-goal margin.

Guatemala vs Trinidad and Tobago Prediction

Neither Guatemala nor Trinidad and Tobago have found the back of the net in the competition. While Trinidad impressed in their first outing against Mexico, their flaws were exposed by El Salvador.

Guatemala are winless against Trinidad and Tobago since 2005 and given their current form, we do not expect them to cause any trouble for the Soca Warriors.

Trinidad and Tobago should be able to score their first goal of the competition in this match and the odds of a win for them also look good.

Prediction: Guatemala 0-1 Trinidad and Tobago
