Mexico to Win

Reason for tip

Mexico have won four of their five Gold Cup games by at least two goals and they should see off a Panama side who lost 1-0 when these two sides met earlier this summer. Mexico are the Gold Cup’s most successful side and another title beckons as they head into this final as firm favourites after a great run.

Mexico 2-0

Reason for tip

Panama took a safety first approach against the US, failing to score in 90 minutes. Mexico should break their resolve much easier having scored at least twice in four games at this tournament, winning each of those by two clear goals.

Henry Martin To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Martin scored in two of his last three starts for Mexico, getting the opening goal against both Haiti and Jamaica. His rapid strike in the semi-final should set him up to have a big impact on the final, where Mexico need to break the resolve of a Panama side who should be nervy given the occasion.

Mexico vs Panama Predictions

  • Mexico beat Panama 1-0 earlier this month
  • Panama beat a below-par US side in the semis
  • Mexico have won by two clear goals in four of their five tournament games

Can Panama make history?

CONCACAF’s top title has so far only been claimed by the USA, Mexico and Canada, with Mexico the dominant side in the confederation with seven Gold Cup wins to their name. That could become eight this weekend, as they prepare to clash with Panama in the 2023 final.

With three nations dominating the competition through the years, Panama head into the final as real underdogs. They were able to dump out the USA in the semi-finals, but they need to overcome an even bigger test to lift the trophy.

Mexico to take the crown again

Mexico have cruised to the final, with their only misstep coming in a 1-0 group stage defeat to Qatar when they had already booked their place in the second round. They’ve won by at least two goals in all four tournament victories, while they dominated their semi-final clash with Jamaica from the outset.

Mexico claimed a 1-0 win over Panama in the Nations League ahead of this tournament and their form at the Gold Cup suggests they should prove too strong for the outsiders.

Back Mexico to win in 90 minutes and add another Gold Cup to their collection, while Henry Martin is their big threat heading into the final. He’s scored twice across his last three starts for Mexico, including the early opener against Jamaica in the last round. Back him to strike again in the final.
