The CONCACAF playoffs are underway, giving teams a chance to qualify for Qatar 2022. The second dual between Curacao vs. Panama will be on Tuesday, June 15, at the Estadio Erilio Hato. Panama could see an end to their dreams of qualifying if Curacao beats them 1-0 at home due to the condition of the visiting goal. However, during the first match, the Curacao team barely managed to trouble the Panama team coached by Christiansen in the first half, during which they showed signs that they were not bothered by the 0-0 score held. This second leg between Curacao vs. Panama will be played on Tuesday, June 15 at 19:00 E.T. and broadcast by NEX, TV Max, and RPC.

Let’s review the current situation of both teams before the second leg:
Curacao: The team coached by former Ajax and Barcelona legend Patrick Kluivert will try to face a Panamanian team, to try to overcome the adverse result of the first duel, after fighting hard to get to this point, in addition, this match must be a fight to the finish if either of these two teams wants to go further.
Panama: Panama’s national team took the first step, half a ticket to advance to the CONCACAF final octagonal for the Qatar 2022 qualifiers, after defeating Curaçao, 2-1, however, the coach of the “Sele” warned the media: “we will not defend results in Curaçao, we will go to pass, with our idea and the intention to score,” so we will surely see a very dynamic match due to the possibilities that both teams have to enter the final octagonal.
