    I think it's good to type it is as text. The top two in each League A group and the winners of each League B group qualify, which is 12 teams. The second place teams from League B play the winners from League C in Qualifying Round 1. Those four winners play the third (last) place teams from League A in Qualifying Round 2, and those team qualify. Both rounds will be in two legs, with Qualifying Round 1 in March 2020 and Qualifying Round 2 in June 2020.

    Pretty much the best possible outcome for Guatemala coming out of League C (although I do recall them somehow losing to Cuba the last time they were in the Gold Cup in 2015). I don’t really want Cuba since they invariably make sure to get routed at least one game every Gold Cup, so I hope Guatemala takes them out and comes back from 6 years of Gold Cup purgatory.

    Guyana gave Trinidad fits at the last Gold Cup, so they might be in trouble, too.

    Haiti and Bermuda are the only two locks IMO.

    So with the COVID-19 provoking the suspension of games/empty stadium measures the world over, at some point Concacaf will have to make a decision on these Round-1 playoffs as well. Given that Concacaf isn't going to organize any major competition in the summer (beyond the Nations League finals), no reason they couldn't just play both rounds in June...
