Bulls Abroad: Lawrence, Miller and Ouimette all looking to advance to next round

With two matches left one Red Bull will likely be sent home

In the final match day of Group B  three teams will fight for their lives. After two matches, only one team has clinched a berth to the quarterfinals, and no team has been eliminated.

Kemar Lawrence and Jamaica are currently on top of the group with four points after beating Canada and tying Costa Rica. Meanwhile, El Salvador and Roy Miller's Costa Rica both have two points apiece, with Costa Rica ahead on tiebreaker with more goals scored. Canada with Karl Ouimette are holding up the group, with the one point they picked up against El Salvador. Tuesday's matches will hold a special meaning for Les Rouges as the matches will be held in Toronto, the first time a Gold Cup match will be held outside the United States or Mexico.

In the first match at BMO Field, Jamaica will take on El Salvador. Although Jamaica's spot in the quarter finals has already been secured their spot atop the group has not. The only way The Reggae Boyz will be able to do this would be with a win, which would all but eliminate El Salvador.

Kemar Lawrence is likely to retain his spot in the Jamaican starting lineup. Lawrence has picked up right where he left off at the Copa America playing very well in both of Jamaica's first two matches.

In the second match of the night, Costa Rica will play Canada. Home field advantage will surely benefit Canada, are on the brink of elimination. Roy Miller has started in both of his teams previous games scoring in one. Despite his goal, Miller has struggled for Los Ticos in the center of defense.

Head coach Paulo Cesar Wanchope has confirmed that he will make two changes to his sides starting lineup. According to the report by yashinquesada.com Miller will be one of those sacrificed. Costa Rica will also be boosted by the return of starting right back Cristian Gamboa. The West Bromwich player missed out on Los Ticos last match against El Salvador with an injury.

Much like the final day of Group A play it seems as though Group B's finale will be filled with plenty of drama as teams battle for spots in the next round. Whichever team ends up in third place will still be alive heading into Group C's final matches. The two top third place teams makes it to the next round of the competition, the fate of the third place team in Group B, will be decided tomorrow.
