Back Reggae Boyz to shine at Gold Cup in our 22/1 Friday night acca

Jamaica should start strongly in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, while Boca Juniors are worth opposing in the Argentina Primera Liga opener.

If you thought you'd seen the end of the international tournaments this summer with the end of the Copa America and Euro 2020, then think again because the CONCACAF Gold Cup is underway in the USA.

The hosts are among the favourites along with Costa Rica, Jamaica and holders Mexico, and it's the ever-entertaining Reggae Boyz who form part of our Friday night acca.

Jamaica vs Guadeloupe

Jamaica started their group stage campaign with a 2-0 victory over Suriname, with Fulham's Bobby Decordova-Reid among the scorers.

Both of those goals were scored in the first half hour, while Guadeloupe were 2-1 down at half time in their first group match, on the way to a 3-1 defeat against Costa Rica.

We're expecting Jamaica to fly out of the traps in Orlando, and at least two goals to be scored in the first half is a tasty 9/5.

Union Santa Fe vs Boca Juniors

Defending champions Boca travel to Union in the first game of the Argentina Primera Division campaign, and we reckon they're worth opposing in Santa Fe.

The Xeneizes have lost their last five away games to nil, while Union are unbeaten in five straight home matches, which includes a 1-0 win over Boca.

The champs are also having to adjust to life without Carlos Tevez, who may be in the twilight of his career, but was still a cult hero in Buenos Aires and will be tough to replace.

So we're happy to side with the 21/10 hosts.

Derry City vs Shamrock Rovers

Despite being eliminated from the Champions League on Wednesday, Shamrock Rovers will have gained enormous confidence from a 2-1 win over Slovan Bratislava.

And the League of Ireland leaders can carry that form into their game against Derry City, who have won just one of their last four matches.

The Candystripes are also struggling at home, tasting victory in just one of their 10 matches at Brandywell Stadium this season.

And we reckon the 3/4 visitors will pile on the home discomforts for Derry.

FC Midtjylland vs OB Odense

FC Midtjylland will be a familiar name to Liverpool fans, as the Danish Superliga runners-up gave the Reds all they could handle in a 1-1 draw on their own patch last season.

And, in the very first game of the new Superliga campaign, the Wolves should feast on a team who finished six points and 15 places behind them last campaign.

The hosts have enjoyed a decent pre-season, winning two out of three matches, and with a Champions League clash against Celtic on Tuesday they will be keen to build some momentum.

They are 4/7 to prepare for their Bhoys match-up in the best possible way.
