Just eight teams remain standing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and there are some exciting clashes to look forward to at the weekend.

They are blessed with plenty of exciting players and they did really well to come back from a 1-0 deficit to beat the highly rated Costa Ricans on Tuesday. Canada also warmed up for this game in style by battering Cuba 7-0 in their final group game. They also beat Martinique, but lost to Mexico and finished second in their group. The Canadians would probably be pleased to land a quarter-final tie with Haiti rather than Costa Rica, but they cannot afford to take Marc Collat’s men lightly.</p><p><a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes"><em><strong>Tip: Both teams to score at 11/10 (2.10) with Ladbrokes</strong></em></a></p><h2>Mexico v Costa Rica</h2><p><strong>Saturday, June 29, at NRG Stadium</strong></p><p>Mexico have been the best team at this tournament by a comfortable margin and they coasted through to the knockout stage. It all began with a 7-0 demolition job on Cuba, then they beat Canada 3-1 and edged Martinique 3-2 in their final group game. They have left a lot of big players at home, including Hirving Lozano, Javier Hernandez and Hector Herrera, but El Tri are blessed with real strength in depth and many talented stars have shone at the CONCACAF Gold Cup so far. Costa Rica must have had their confidence knocked by that surprise defeat to Haiti, and they are unlikely to beat Mexico in the quarter-finals. The Mexicans look like they mean business under new boss Gerardo Martino, and Wolves striker Raul Jimenez may be too hot for Costa Rica to handle.</p><p><a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway"><em><strong>Tip: Mexico to win and over 1.5 goals at 31/40 (1.78) with Betway</strong></em></a></p><h2>Jamaica v Panama</h2><p><strong>Sunday, June 30, at Lincoln Financial Field</strong></p><p>Jamaica finished CONCACAF Gold Cup runners-up at the last two tournaments and they have been solid once again in 2019. They battled to a 3-2 victory over Honduras in their opener and then secured back-to-back draws with El Salvador and Curacao to top their group. They have a fine player in Leon Bailey and this team looks quick and powerful. Panama beat Trinidad &amp; Tobago and Guyana, banging in six goals in the process, and then lost 1-0 to the USA last time out to finish second in their group. These teams look very evenly matched and it is hard to pick a winner, so backing a draw in 90 minutes might be a good option.</p><p><a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power"><em><strong>Tip: Draw at 9/5 (3.20) with Paddy Power</strong></em></a></p><h2>USA v Curacao</h2><h2><strong>Sunday, June 30, at Lincoln Financial Field</strong></h2><p>This looks like the most lopsided of all the quarter-final ties, as the USA should be able to steamroller Curacao. The Americans won all three group games and did not concede a single goal. They beat Guyana 4-0, Trinidad &amp; Tobago 6-0 and Panama 1-0, withPaul Arriola, Gyasi Zardes, Tyler Boyd and Jozy Altidore looking dangerous. Christian Pulisic, who has just moved from Borussia Dortmund to Chelsea in a huge deal, is arguably the best player at this tournament and he should be able to unlock this Curacao defence. Remko Bicenti’s side lost to El Salvador in their opener, but rallied to beat Honduras, draw with Jamaica and scrape through to the last eight. Yet this should be the end of the road for Curacao.</p><p><em><strong><a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power">Tip: USA to win 2-0 at 7/2 (4.50) with Paddy Power or USA win to nil</a></strong></em></p></div>
