USA vs Jamaica Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

USA and Jamaica will square off at Levi’s Stadium in California for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup Final. USA managed a comfortable 0-2 win over Costa Rica in the Semi-finals thanks to two second-half goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey. Meanwhile, Jamaica picked up a dramatic 0-1 victory over Mexico in the Semi-finals, with Kemar Lawrence scoring the winner with just two minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Jamaica enter the fray high on confidence following their narrow win over Mexico, but USA are desperate to lift the trophy. USA have won four of the last five meetings with Jamaica and I think they could still walk away with the victory on Thursday.

USA Preview

USA extended their unbeaten streak across all competitions to 13 games following their 0-2 victory over Costa Rica in the Gold Cup Semi-finals three days ago. The Star and Stripes kicked off their Gold Cup campaign with only a 1-1 draw against Panama in the opening group fixture, but they bounced back with four consecutive victories. Furthermore, the United States managed to score at least two goals in each of their last four games while keeping a clean sheet in three of these. The Star and Stripes are playing in front of their own fans and their recent home record have seen them win six and draw three of their last nine games across all competitions. In addition, USA have won three of their last four home meetings with Jamaica across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in each of these. Jordan Morris is the team’s topscorer with two goals under his belt, both in the group stage, while the super-sub Clint Dempsey managed one goal and one assist in USA’s 2-0 win over Costa Rica in the Semi-finals. Actually, Dempsey can set the all-time U.S. men’s goal record in the final in this clash against Jamaica.

USA Team News

It’s difficult to predict the lineup for this clash as coach Arena has continued to change his starting XI from game to game.

Jamaica Preview

Jamaica did it again as they beat Mexico 0-1 in the Semi-finals to reach a second-successive Gold Cup Final and will once again play the role of underdog. After their shocking victory over Mexico two days ago, the Reggae Boyz will need to pull off an even greater effort to beat USA and to become the first non-North American team to win the trophy. Jamaica haven’t played a spectacular football throughout this tournament, but a combination of a well-coached and organized team and goal-scoring forwards can get the job done on the night. The Reggae Boyz have kept a clean sheet in three of their five games at this tournament, including one against Mexico in the Semi-finals. Furthermore, Jamaica managed to beat USA in the 2015 Gold Cup Semi-finals, which was one of the more shocking defeats in the Klinsmann era. Giles Barnes and Darren Mattocks both went on the scoresheet in that game, and the latter has already managed to score two goals for Jamaica throughout the current Gold Cup edition. Away from home, Jamaica have only lost once in their last five games across all competitions, while keeping four clean sheets in the process.

Jamaica Team News

Kevon Lambert has served his ban for yellow-card accumulation and could be reinserted into central midfield for the final.
