The Gold Cup is coming to a close over the next week as the semifinals get underway. The USMNT will face off against CONCACAF tournament guest Qatar in the first semifinal match of the tournament. The game takes place on Thursday, July 29 at 7:30 p.m. ET at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas.
The United States won all four of the CONCACAF Gold Cup games it has played so far, and teams have struggled to score against the USA. The Americans are coming off a 1-0 victory over Jamaica in the quarterfinal, and they also have victories over Haiti, Martinique and Canada. Meanwhile, Qatar has won three straight games to reach Thursday’s semifinal.
Here is the opening line for the first semifinal.
Qatar vs. USA
Even though it is 4-0 during the Gold Cup, USA has not pulled away from most opponents to this point. Three of the team’s victories came on a 1-0 scoreline so the Americans are very beatable. Qatar has actually scored more goals than USA with a 12-9 advantage in four games in the Gold Cup. Oddsmakers at DraftKings Sportsbook highly expect USA to come away with a victory, and we’ll see where the odds move as we get closer to game time.
