Panama have performed well in the CONCACAF Gold Cup so far, topping Group A before hammering Cuba in the quarter final and they now face Mexico in Arlington, Texas, for a place in the final.
Having already beaten the Mexicans earlier in the competition, they’ll be confident of doing so again, an outcome BetVictor offer at 33/10 but on this occasion, Jose Manuel de la Torre’s charges should be able to gain revenge.
Aside from defeating Mexico, Panama toiled in the group, requiring a late penalty againt Martinique and drawing with a poor Canada side in contrast to Mexico, who cruised past both teams.
It’s also not worth reading too much into their 6-1 mauling of a pretty ordinary Cuban outfit given that the latter were reduced to ten men with the score at 2-1.
Mexico are the match bet then at even money with Coral but Panama can nevertheless ensure it’s tight so a case can be made for a Mexican triumph by one at 13/5 (Paddy Power). Alternatively, William Hill go 11/2 about them bagging the only goal.
