Jamaica vs Panama: prediction for the CONCACAF Nations League

The CONCACAF Nations League medal match!

Falling just short of the final match, Jamaica and Panama will clash at AT&T Stadium in Arlington for the third place in the CONCACAF Champions League. Match in Texas will begin on March 24, at 11 PM CET.

Jamaica

While sitting 57th in the FIFA rankings, Jamaica is trying to earn their first medal finish in Nations League, as they missed the playoffs in the previous two events.

Overtaking Honduras for the first place in the group stage before coming on top in a thrilling two-game series against Canada pushed Jamaica into the playoffs, where they were less than a minute away from the final match. Scoring shortly after a starting whistle, the team allowed an own goal to the United States 96 minutes in, falling in the overtime “1-3”.

Now, with a Copa America spot in the bag and the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifier in summer, Jamaica would like to push themselves up in the global rankings. The medal finish in Texas might be exactly what the doctor ordered.

Panama

44th in the FIFA rankings, Panama is eager to one up their result from the last season of the Nations League, where they fell “0-1” to Mexico in a bronze medal game.

Blowing past Costa Rica with relative ease, Panama looked to possibly even win a championship in Arlington, but hit a Mexican wall once again, this time suffering a crushing “0-3” defeat. With the spots at Copa America and World Cup qualifier in the bag, it would bring good news for the squad if they finished top-3 in the Nations League, but an opposition will not give up without a fight.

Prediction ⚽️

Panama holds a lead in the series, including winning four of the last five, as the last Jamaican victory dates to a CONCACAF Gold Cup clash in 2019.

While the game is considered a toss-up by the sportsbooks, it all comes down to the mental edge, as Jamaica suffered a massive heartbreak on Wednesday night. We will go with a more experienced side in Panama to secure a win with 2.70 odds 🔥.
