Guadeloupe vs Bahamas: Storylines
The road to the Gold Cup 2021 group stage will bring us this interesting encounter between two teams that arrive at this Preliminary round with plenty of expectations. Guadeloupe have made it to the tournament's group stage four times so far.
Meanwhile, the Bahamas are still in the quest for a first appearance in the Gold Cup group phase. After finishing atop Group B in the CNL League C, they are confident of making a good run in this edition.
However, Les Gwada Boys want to get between the best-16 of the cup for the first time in 10 years. They were ruthless in the Nations League Group D two years ago, winning all four matches and conceding just twice. Will they progress in their Gold Cup journey?
