United States vs Haiti Predictions and Picks
Thanks to a 4-1 win over Bermuda earlier this week, Haiti officially booked one of the final qualifying spots for this month’s Concacaf Gold Cup tournament.
With little time to rest and celebrate, they’ll kick off their run in the competition with an intimidating match against the U.S. men’s national team.
Along with Mexico, the USMNT are easily one of the two favorites to win the Gold Cup this year and will be expected to breeze through the group stage.
And although the United States have given rest to many of their top names who play abroad, there’s still plenty of talent in their alternate roster that should be able to get the job done.
Looking ahead to a busy end to the year that will include World Cup qualifying, the Gold Cup will be an audition for several Americans who should be motivated to attract attention. Even without several of their stars, the USMNT should have no problems having a strong start in the tournament.

Let’s dive into both teams as they head into the Gold Cup.
At the moment, the United States have looked confident with only one loss in their last 13 matches in all competitions.
There’s an enthusiasm surrounding the team from fans and media who now have high hopes for the program — especially after securing the inaugural Concacaf Nations League title in June.
Roster depth has continued to develop, which is part of the reason why manager Gregg Berhalter has been able to bring in a long list of fringe players for the Gold Cup.
The storyline is a bit different for Haiti.
Despite their ease with qualifying for the tournament, they have yet to truly keep up with some of the more prominent teams within the region.
And on Sunday, we might see another example of them falling just short of reaching that next level.
Match-Ups Against Top Concacaf Teams Are Burdensome For Haiti
Credit is due to Haiti for qualifying for the Gold Cup, but as we’ve seen in recent years, there are no guarantees they’ll be able to go toe-to-toe with a group like the USMNT.
Last month, they lost twice to Canada and were knocked out of the running for qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
In the 2019-20 Nations League, they didn’t win a single game in their group and were therefore relegated from League A to League B for the next edition.
Other than a surprise run in the knockout stage of the last Gold Cup, Haiti haven’t done much in recent matches to show that they can consistently make things challenging for more prominent teams in the region.
Home Field Advantage Will Give An Even Bigger Boost To The Americans
With some of the most boisterous fans in MLS likely showing up in the tens of thousands, Children’s Mercy Park will be expected to give an extra edge to the USMNT on Sunday.
Statistically, they tend to thrive at the venue as well.
With five wins and a draw in their six visits to Children’s Mercy Park, the United States are undefeated at Sporting Kansas City’s home.
It’s a fortress for the national team, and by the end of the weekend, their undefeated streak will be expected to extend to seven with a victory for the home side.
Young USMNT Talent Could Steal The Show
Although some fans might be disappointed to not see the likes of Christian Pulisic or Gio Reyna in the Gold Cup, the good news is that there will be no lack of up-and-coming talent on the pitch.
U23 options like Gianluca Busio, Matthew Hoppe, Nicholas Gioacchini, Daryl Dike and several others all have the abilities to become key figures for the USMNT.
As mentioned earlier, this month will also be a try-out of sorts before World Cup qualifying begins later on this year.
And with that in mind, fans should anticipate some energetic performances from budding names that could hit the ground running against Haiti in Kansas City.
