USA and Canada will fight it out for first place in Group B when they meet at Children’s Mercy Park in Sunday’s CONCACAF Gold Cup clash.
Both teams are already through to the knockout stages after claiming six points from the first two group games, with the Canucks currently first on goals scored.

However, Canada are 10/3 (4.33) outsiders with bet365 to maintain their superiority by pulling off a first away win over their rivals since 1957, and priced at 12/5 (3.40) to earn a valuable point.
Gregg Berhalter’s USA side followed up an edgy 1-0 opening win over Haiti by thrashing Martinique 6-1 in their last outing and are 17/20 (1.85) favourites to make it three wins from three in Kansas City.

USA vs Canada preview
Despite missing star men Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David, John Herdman’s team has lit the tournament up with eight goals from their opening two matches – more than any other team in the competition.
While question marks remain over their backline after conceding against both Martinique and Haiti, they will back themselves to cause plenty of problems for a Stars and Stripes team that has called up a less experienced squad mainly consisting of MLS players.
While the lack of big names, such as Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna, did seem to hold them back in a frustrating opening game against Haiti, the host nation clicked into gear with their 6-1 thrashing of Martinique last time out.
USA vs Canada tips & predictions
With both teams in confident form in attack, odds of 11/10 (2.10) therefore seem generous on over 2.5 goals being scored for USA’s fourth game in five, as well as an eighth fixture in nine for Canada.
