Guyana to face off against Haiti to reclaim Nations League lead
The Golden Jaguars are looking to bounce back from their tragic 6-2 defeat against Haiti on Saturday when the two teams face off yet again on Tuesday.
Concacaf Nations League B closes on Tuesday night with two matches that will go a long way toward deciding which teams are playing in League A in the next tournament, who goes to the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup, and who will be relegated.
In Group B of the league, Haiti sits atop the table with seven points. They assumed the lead after defeating Guyana’s Golden Jaguars 6-2 on Saturday, June 18, at the Leonora facility.
This win extends Haiti’s all-time undefeated record against Guyana, which stretches all the way back to 1973.
Guyana, who entered the contest on the back of two wins, would ideally need a draw in the Dominican Republic to hold on to second place, which would give them a chance at contesting the Gold Cup prelims.
Guyana is currently in second with 6 points, just one point behind Haiti. Haiti is the Caribbean’s 10th-ranked team in the CONCACAF ranking. They have a global ranking of 90 in contrast to Guyana’s 174.
Guyana will later travel to Hamilton on March 25, 2023, to face Bermuda. The Golden Jaguars close their participation in the second edition of the Nations League with a home game against Montserrat on March 28, 2023.
