Match: Panama vs Northern Ireland Competition: International Friendlies Time / Date: 04:00h / 30th May 2018 Venue: Estadio Rommel Fernandez Gutierrez
Panama will play their seventh friendly match before World Cup against another solid European team that reached the 16th finals in France.
Panama has already recorded six games in the last seven months, but all were as guests. (2W, 1D, 3L). This year they played three games, two of which against the European team and did not record a single win and didn’t scored a single goal but conceded seven. In the final control beat Trinidad and Tobago with 0: 1.
After Northern Ireland was disappointed by Switzerland, they played only one friendly game against the Republic of Korea and beat them 2-1.
Panama against European teams has not yet won 3 draws and 4 losses and a goal difference of 4 for Panama and 17 against Panama.
Northern Ireland have played 10 times with teams from CONCACAF and have 4 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses with 17 goals scored and 10 goals conceded.
These two nations will meet for the first time against each other.
This match is hard to pick a winner after both teams do not impress, Panama, as the host has one victory in the last 8 games (3D, 4L) and scored in only three of these matches and the opponent’s in the match is without a win in 15 away (5D,10L) having just scored one goal in that period. A boring match can be expected and a draw result is possible.
