Jamaica invite Panama to Independence Park in the final round fixture of the FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying on Sunday.

The hosts find themselves at the bottom of the standings after suffering a defeat in their previous encounter against Mexico at Estadio Azteca. Jamaica thought they had done enough to secure a point from the game but Henry Martin scored a winner in the 89th minute to give Mexico the three points.

Panama played a goalless draw against Costa Rica in their first qualifying fixture of the final round.

Jamaica vs Panama Prediction

Jamaica lost in their opening fixture against Mexico but managed to find the back of the net in that game. Panama played a goalless draw against Costa Rica but recorded 18 shots on goal. We expect Panama to provide an attacking threat in this game.

In international fixtures, home advantage often plays a big role, so we predict a narrow win for the hosts.

Prediction: Jamaica 2-1 Panama
