Panama vs United States Betting Tips: AH2 (-1)

Although they were competitive for 80-plus minutes in their Copa America opener, the closing stage brought a veritable goal fest to the Hard Rock Stadium to ultimately condemn the brave Panamians to a 1-3 loss at the hands of 15-time winners Uruguay.

Fearing an early exit from this summer's tournament after just two matches, manager Thomas Christiansen will demand a swift response, but his squad seems unable to revive their chances of progressing from Group C, having been defeated in four of their last six outings.

Amidst a 66-match tenure under the Spanish strategiest, Los Canaleros face back-to-back losses for the fourth time, yet they have thus far found a way to avoid a third setback in a row and hope to do so again, buoyed by beating the USA in two of the last three H2Hs, with the latest triumph coming last year via penalties in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals.

Perhaps the final June preparations didn't serve to boost morale—enduring a humbling 1-5 defeat to Colombia before holding tournament favorites Brazil to a respectable 1-1 draw—but the USMNT got off to a flying start in the 2024 Copa America by celebrating a comfortable 2-0 victory over Bolivia in Texas.

Following their opening victory against the South American side on Monday, the Americans have now racked up three wins and shutouts on the bounce during the group phase of this tournament, harkening back to their last participation - also as hosts - when they wrapped up their section with a thrashing of Costa Rica 4-0 and a narrow 1-0 win over Paraguay eight years ago.

While recently enduring some unexpected setbacks against Panama, the broader picture of their H2H matchups shows that the Stars and Stripes have rarely struggled to put Los Canaleros on the losing side, handing them five defeats in the last seven encounters, four of which came with at least a three-goal margin.

With their current roster brimming with talent and promise, it seems the Americans have everything it takes to challenge for their first-ever Copa America trophy, especially as the tournament unfolds on their home soil. Consequently, we expect Gregg Berhalter's squad to adopt a dominant stance right from the kickoff and seal their spot in the round of 16 with a routine success. It would also serve as sweet revenge for USMNT against Panama, who thwarted them in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals last year.

Panama team news

Nashville SC midfielder Anibal Godoy has been named in Panama's squad for this year's major tournament taking place in the Americas, but he remained sidelined for the opener due to a minor injury issue.

One of the key figures in the national team, Puma, will need to undergo assessment ahead of matchday two of the Copa America, after the Famalicao winger was forced off in the 84th minute due to an apparent injury.

Dissatisfied with Tyler Adams' performance during the opening 45 minutes of the tournament, coach Gregg Berhalter might bench the Bournemouth midfielder for matchday two, with Yunus Musah stepping in instead in the central midfield.

The chief architect of the smooth 2-0 victory in the Copa America opener was Christian Pulisic, who provided the assist for the opening goal before sealing all three points with a goal just before halftime against Bolivia, ensuring his place in the starting XI remains unchanged.
