Gold Cup Day 3 - Group C preview/predictions

The last of the three groups kicks off tonight at Giants Stadium. This should be the most difficult group, but Mexico should not have much trouble taking it.

Panama vs. Honduras
7pm ET - TV: Galavision
Panama wants to repeat their trick from two years ago, but it looks like there will be too much talent from other sides to make it happen. Honduras come into the match with a much stronger midfield then Panama but they also have a big unknown in Amado Guevara. Guevara is a player who, like Carlos Ruiz, can be something amazing to watch but also can decide not to give a damn. Where as Ruiz almost never sleeps his way through national team matches, Guevara has. Jose Luis Garces should give Panama some chances, but Honduras should win.
Predictions: Me Panama 1-2 Honduras, Wife Panama 2 - 1 Honduras

Mexico vs. Cuba
9pm ET - TV: Univision
'El Tri' finally get things started and do so against what should be the weakest side in their group. Mexico have most of their big guns in for this one so it should be an easy walk. Still, I think Mexico's defense will let their guard down at some point and Cuba will sneak in a couple go chances. Cuauhtémoc Blanco might end up being the story of the night as his recent form in Mexico has been wonderful. In the end, Mexico will wash over Cuba, but I think there will be few more nervous moments then one would expect, but Mexico will take charge during the final 30-minutes.
Predictions: Me Mexico 3-0 Cuba, Wife Mexico 3-2 Cuba
