Costa Rica and Haiti each won their opening two games of the 2018 CONCACAF Men’s U-20 Championship, and both sides have yet to concede a goal in the tournament.
Costa Rica is expected to win Group E and compete in the next phase for a berth at the 2019 U-20 World Cup. But if that expectation is to be confounded, it is most likely to be because Haiti has found its way to an upset.
Los Ticos have the edge in the standings on goal difference at present, so a draw favors the Central American team. A draw would also likely make goal difference the deciding factor in determining the winner of Group E, setting both sides the task of winning their final group stage game by a significant margin.
