During their campaign opener, Mexico were able to prove why they are one of the favorites to win their group. It was a dominating 4-0 win for them against Honduras, the biggest win in the group stage so far. On that match, it was Luis Romo, Orbelin Pineda, and Luis Chavez who provided the goals for Mexico. What gives Mexico the confidence in this match is the fact that they won four of their last meeting with Haiti. This means that they have a huge advantage coming into this match since they are doing well against their opponent. Additionally, this squad have also won their last two matches, while being able to keep clean sheets from these matches. A win in this match is not impossible, as they are the most successful team in Gold Cup. In fact, they last lifted the silverware during the 2019 edition of the contest. They just need to continue their form to win here.

John Vasquez is expected to lead Mexico to continue their successful run in the campaign. Along with him are Alvarez, Sanchez, Gallardo, Reyes, and Chavez, who are all expected to score for the Mexicans.

Haiti on the other hand is also from a win during the opener of their campaign in the Gold Cup. They had a narrow 2-1 win against Qatar on their opener, due to their shot in the 97th minute. During that match, it was Duckens Nazon, and Frantzdy Pierrot who helped Haiti to climb back from a one-goal deficit. Moroever, just like Mexico, Haiti also have a good momentum coming into this game, as they are in a winning run. Across all competitions, Haiti were able to win all their last six games, where they scored at least twice in those games. During that period, they were able to score 24 goals, conceding just six goals. Additionally, in their last nine games across all contests, they suffered just one defeat which is a good sign for them. They are the second most successful team in the contest next to Mexico, which gives them confidence here.

Sainte, Alceus, Pierrot, and Ade all retain their spots in the starting 11 for Haiti. Moreover, Alexander Pierre is also expected to reclaim his spot for this exciting match.
