Mexico will face Martinique in their final group-stage match of the 2019 Gold Cup on Sunday, with El Tri aiming to lock up the top spot in Group A.

The CONCACAF giants have won their first two matches by a combined score of 10-1 and are expected to cruise to another easy win. Caesars has installed them as overwhelming 1-35 favourites, while Martinique carry odds of 30-1. A draw comes in at 14-1.

Kick-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET, and fans can tune into the contest via Fox Sports 1.

Mexico haven't faced much resistance during this year's Gold Cup, with their biggest headache perhaps the lengthy delay they suffered on their way to Charlotte, North Carolina:

El Tri highlighted their dominance in the 3-1 win over Canada in their previous match. The Canadians are regarded as the other strong side in Group A and demolished Martinique in their opening match, so Les Matinino will know they are in for a tough challenge on Sunday.

Martinique lack the high-end talent of the bigger nations in the tournament, and their best-ever result in the Gold Cup was a quarter-final appearance in 2002. Most of the squad plays in the domestic league, while Mexico's squad has several international stars.

Uriel Antuna leads El Tri in scoring in this tournament, courtesy of his hat-trick in the 7-0 demolition of Cuba.

The 22-year-old was brilliant in the contest, although Cuba didn't make things difficult for El Tri:

While he and his attacking team-mates might relish another opportunity to pad their stats, Mexico are likely to rest a few key starters with an eye on the knockout stages. Raul Jimenez and Andres Guardado, in particular, are expected to be vital for those matches. There's no need to risk them against Martinique, with a ticket for the quarter-finals already secured.

                   

Prediction: Mexico 4-0 Martinique
