QAT vs PN Dream11 Prediction: Qatar will open their 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign at BBVA Stadium in Houston when they battle Panama on Wednesday morning. Qatar will be making their first appearance at this tournament, while Panama will hope to bounce back from their recent defeat to Mexico, 3-0 in a friendly at the end of June. This competition will serve good for Qatar’s big moment on the international stage when they host the World Cup in 2022.
A close contest is expected here between two Group D sides in good form heading into the tournament. Qatar won their last three World Cup qualification games without conceding a goal, whilst Panama have not tasted defeat in a competitive fixture since November 2019 when they were beaten by Mexico in the CONCACAF Nations League. Both teams have proven themselves as solid in defence and neither will look to give much away here in the knowledge that any mistake could see them punished, with each desperate not to begin their tournament with defeat

This Qatari side is well organized and tough to break down, having conceded only one shot on target in their last three matches. Panama knows what it takes to make it out of the group stage of this tournament, but three of their four defenders are in their 30s, and they could be penalized for pace against a young and dynamic attack. In our QAT vs PN Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-1 win for Qatar side in this match.
