Martinique has given a good account of itself over its first two games of the group stage at this Gold Cup. It wouldn't have been a bad tournament for the team if it had managed to get one point out of Group B, but it has three thanks to a 2-0 win over Nicaragua, and the satisfaction of having given the USA a scare during a 3-2 loss.
Martinique is expected to lose this game as well, but it has showed enough so far for the game to be expected to be at least close. Les Matinino are not pushovers, and Panama is not a free-scoring team. So another narrow loss for Martinique is the result most might reasonably predict before kick-off.
For Panama, a draw or a win guarantees qualification for the quarterfinals, but the team will hope to conjure a few goals along the way. More than the expected passage to the knockout rounds, Los Canaleros would like an in-form, international-level goal scorer to emerge from this tournament. Panama doesn't seem to have quite enough attacking fire-power at the moment - as suggested by a string of draws in recent big games. If it can develop a few more options up front, maybe draws turn into wins during the closing stages of World Cup qualifying later this year.
