Gold Cup: Mexico vs Cuba – Where to Watch

The 2019 Gold Cup gets underway this Saturday, with Group A kicking off the tournament with a doubleheader at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The opener is Canada vs Martinique, but Mexico gets underway right after that as they face Cuba.

Mexico is unbeaten under new coach Tata Martino, who oversaw victories against Chile and Paraguay in March, but the team has been hit hard by injuries and their depth will be tested in the coming weeks.

Venezuela played out a 1-1 draw with Ecuador in a friendly just a few days ago, and has won just one of their last five matches – a surprise 3-1 victory against Argentina back in March. They’ll look to surprise Mexico as well in this one.
