Antigua will play host to Bahamas at ABFA Technical Center in the CONCACAF Nations League on Tuesday.
Antigua vs Bahamas Preview
The hosts boast three points and sit third in Group D of League B. They can unseat second-placed Puerto Rico if things go their way. Antigua are expected to carry off this clash at home after thumping the Bahamas 4-1 when they last met. However, catching up with first-placed Guyana appears to be a tall order.
The Benna Boys returned to winning ways in the previous meeting following a four-game losing streak, with 17 goals conceded against two scored. At home, they are winless in their previous four outings, with their last win dating back to June 2022. Antigua will likely settle for the third or second spot to maintain their League B status.
The Bahamas are yet to claim a single point in the series, losing all three matches they have played so far to take the bottom seat of the group. In fact, their struggles did not begin in this competition. The visitors are winless in their last eight matches, losing seven times. If things stand as they are, the Bahamas will face relegation to League C.
The Baha Boyz earned promotion to League B from League C last season, but have been a shadow of their old selves since then. However, they could take inspiration from their previous visit to the Bahamas when they held the home side to a goalless draw. The Bahamas can still avoid the drop if they win their remaining games.
