Mexico take on Haiti and the USA face Jamaica in the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup this week.
<div><h2>Haiti v Mexico</h2><p><strong>Tuesday, July 6, at University of Phoenix Stadium</strong></p><p>Haiti have had a great tournament so far and they full deserve their place in the semi-finals. They beat Costa Rica and finished top of their group before prevailing in a thrilling quarter-final against Canada. Marc Collat’s men found themselves 2-0 down at half-time and staring elimination in the face, but they rallied in sensational fashion. Goals from Duckens Nazon and Hervé Bazile brought them level and then Wilde Donald Guerrier slammed in the winner to spark scenes of jubilation among Haitian fans.</p><p>Yet this should be the end of the road for Haiti. They are now up against the best team in the tournament and Mexico really should triumph in this clash. They coasted through their group to tee up a tricky quarter-final with Costa Rica, and they needed a penalty shootout in order to scrape through to the last four. That was far from a vintage performance from El Tri, but it should serve as a wake-up call. Raul Jimenez of Wolves has looked dangerous up front throughout the tournament, and superior technical ability and experience should see Mexico through this game without too many problems.</p><p><a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes"><em><strong>Tip: Mexico half-time / full-time at 8/11 (1.73) with Ladbrokes</strong></em></a></p><h2>Jamaica v USA</h2><p><strong>Wednesday, July 7, at LP Field</strong></p><p>This is a repeat of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup final, which USA won 2-1 courtesy of a late Jordan Morris strike. Jamaica have finished runners-up at the last two tournaments, but they are unlikely to make the final for a third time in a row. They have done well to reach this stage. They had just 39% of the possession in their quarter-final clash with Panama, but they held on for a tense 1-0 victory. This Jamaica team has plenty of pace and athleticism, and good players like Leon Bailey, but overall USA are blessed with a lot more quality.</p><p>They battled to a 1-0 victory over unheralded Curacao in the last round, and they will need to improve to triumph in this game. Christian Pulisic is full of invention and he could be key to unlocking this stubborn Jamaica defence. Paul Arriola, Gyasi Zardes, Jozy Altidore and Tyler Boyd should benefit from strong service, and you would expect USA to edge this one. They should enjoy passionate support in Nashville and that could be enough to hand them a famous victory.</p><p><a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power"><em><strong>Tip: USA to win and under 3.5 goals at 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power</strong></em></a></p></div>
