Dominica vs. Jamaica – Prediction and Betting Tips | Jun 9, 2024

On Sunday, June 9, 2024, at 8pm UK time, Dominica will host Jamaica at Windsor Park in Roseau for their second match in the 2026 CONCACAF World Cup qualifying campaign. Dominica is looking to recover from a heavy defeat in their opener, while Jamaica aims to build on a narrow victory and strengthen their position in Group E.

Match Preview

Dominica’s 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign began with a heavy 6-0 defeat to Guatemala. This result was a significant setback for Ellington Sabin’s team, ending their two-match unbeaten run in World Cup qualifying fixtures. Their only victory in the 2022 cycle was a 3-0 win against Anguilla. Sunday’s match against Jamaica presents another tough challenge, as the Reggae Boyz are ranked 55th by FIFA, 125 places above Dominica.

Despite the disparity, Dominica’s recent promotion to League B of the Nations League and their competitive fixtures before the Guatemala match suggest they have the potential to perform better. Their last home match at Windsor Park was in June 2022, and they have not won there since May 2022.

Jamaica, on the other hand, narrowly defeated the Dominican Republic 1-0 in their opening qualifier. Heimir Hallgrimsson’s team has shown defensive solidity, conceding just one targeted effort in that match. The Reggae Boyz have not allowed a goal in four of their five competitive matches this year and have been finding ways to win close games despite injury woes.

Jamaica’s poor away form in the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign was a factor in their failure to reach the finals, but they are determined to improve this time. Their recent history of close victories suggests they can handle the pressure in tight matches.
