Grenada vs Qatar Predictions, Previews, Team News & more | CONCACAF Gold Cup 2021


Qatar are looking to kick off their first Gold Cup campaign with a win against Grenada at the BBVA Stadium in Texas on Saturday.

The defending Asian champions were held to a 3-3 draw by Panama on the opening day of the match, which was an entertaining start to the competition.

The Maroons’ target were Akram Afif, Almoez Ali and Hasan Al-Hados, who are looking to get all three points in their second game.

Granada, who qualified for the tournament after 10 years, were baptized of fire in their first game, 4–0 down to Honduras.

The scoreline might suggest it was a route but the Spice Boys made 10 shots in the match, though their defense was poor.

The Caribbean outfit has not progressed beyond the group stages in either of their last two appearances in the Gold Cup. Now, they have one more mountain left to climb.

Head coach Michael Findlay could stay with the same line-up despite losing 4-0 in their opening game.

But he would be hoping for better than England-born goalkeeper Reis Charles-Cook, who missed all four shots on target.

The defending Asian champions lost three times against Panama, while manager Felix Sanchez provided some food for thought.

Prolific striker Ali Almoez, who scored a goal in a 3-3 thriller on Wednesday, created history as he became the first player to score in the Asian Cup, Copa America and CONCACAF Gold Cup. They are expected to strike again as the Maroons look to collect all three points.

Granada vs Qatar Probable XI

Granada (4-4-2): Jason Belfon; Tyrone Sterling, Quasi Paul, Aaron Pierre, Benjamin Etienne; Regan Charles-Cook, Oliver Norborn, Arthur Paterson, Romer Frank; Sadrell Lewis, Jamal Charles.

Qatar (4-3-3): Meshali Barsham; Ro-Ro, Bassam al-Ravi, Tarek Salman, Abdelkarim Hassan; Homam Ahmed, Abdullah al-Ahraq, Karim Boudiaf, Abdulaziz Hatem; Almoez Ali, Akram Afif.


Grenada vs Qatar Prediction

Panama gave Qatar a massive reality check with a standoff on day one, but it’s hard to see Granada pulling off a similar result.

They are a young side and concede a lot of goals, which is not a good sign as Maroon has the attacking talent to separate them.

Prediction: Grenada 1-3 Qatar
