Gold Cup 2015, U.S. lead group A with 3 points, Haiti and Panama 1 and Honduras 0 points, after losing their opener match against the Americans 2-1 on Tuesday. The second opportunity for “Los Catrachos” will be today as they face Panama in the second round of group matches at Gillette Stadium, Fox-borough, Massachusetts, at 6:00 p.m. The US national team is the favorites in this group.

Clint Dempsey scored double for American team. However, Midfielder Carlos Discua provides the lone goal for los catrachos in the 69th minute to put the team on the board and trying hard to go back to the game. Meanwhile, Honduras came away with zero points against USA and Panama also dropped 2 units against Haiti, who many pundits considered the lightweight of the group.

The center Americans match expects a lot of emotions when los Catrachos against los Canaleros face each other. Meanwhile, the Panamanians drew lowly Haiti 1-1 in their opening match, Midfielder Alberto Quintero scored for La Marea Roja in the 55th minute after a Haitian defense mistake, but Haitians did not give up controlling ball most of the last minutes until attacker Duckens Nazon managed to equalize it in the closing moments.

Prediction is tough 2-1 victory for Honduras over Panama even though it has not been a good year for the Honduras national team. Los Catrachos finished 31st of 32 at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. While Panama new generation that almost did get one last shot at glory with very good players such as Perez, Tejeda, Heriquez, Penedo and Gomez are transforming Panama from CONCACAF minnow into a legitimately terrifying team to play in any tournament.
