Reason for tip

These two sides have a combined one loss between them at the Gold Cup and given their excellent defensive records, it could be tough to split the pair in the semi-final.

Draw 1-1

Reason for tip

Jamaica’s attack has been boosted by the recruitment of a few Premier League forward and only the USA have scored more goals than the Reggae Boyz at the Gold Cup. Mexico have plenty of good attacking options too and both sides can net in the 90 minutes.

Jamaica vs Mexico Predictions

  • Jamaica and Mexico have the Gold Cup’s joint-best defensive record
  • Mexico and Jamaica have lost one game between them at the Gold Cup
  • Three of the last six meetings between these sides have ended all square

Reggae Boyz eye maiden title

Mexico and Jamaica both have ambitions of winning the Gold Cup and are unlikely to give up those dreams without a serious fight in Thursday’s semi-final in Las Vegas.

Both sides have made relatively light work of their opponents on the road to the last four with the Reggae Boyz undefeated so far after seeing off Guatemala 1-0 in the quarter-finals.

The chances of Heimir Hallgrimsson’s side have been boosted by the recruitment of a handful of Premier League regulars and Jamaica have looked a high-functioning unit, one capable of winning their first Gold Cup.

Hallgrimsson appears to have got the balance of his team right with only the USA scoring more goals than the Caribbean nation’s ten, while they’ve only conceded a tournament-low two goals at the Gold Cup.

El Tri may have to go the distance

Jamaica look capable of holding their own against tournament favourites Mexico, who saw off Costa Rica 2-0 in the quarters.

That secured a ninth successive Gold Cup semi-final appearance with El Tri advancing to the final on six occasions previously and a run of just two defeats from the last 11 meetings with Jamaica makes the 11-time Gold Cup winners favourites to advance once more.

However, the last two games between the sides in the Nations League both ended all square and the duo could be tough to split on Thursday.

Like Jamaica, Mexico have allowed just two goals during the Gold Cup so it’s unlikely to be a high-scoring semi-final.

But with Jamaica blessed with some good attacking options like Demarai Gray, Michail Antonio and Leon Bailey, and Mexico having achieved the second highest number of shots on goal at the tournament, a correct score prediction of 1-1 is a strong option.
