El Salvador vs USA predictions
The United States enter the matchup as clear favorites despite being on the road. El Salvador will look to stage an upset at their home stadium and continue on with what has been a strong showing in the CONCACAF Nations League. After a 3-1 win at home against Grenada, El Salvador managed a 2-2 draw when they faced that same side on the road. While Grenada is far from a fierce opponent, El Salvador had struggled before the pair of matchups, losing its three previous games.
Nelson Bonilla played a crucial role in the positive results against Grenada and the team will hope he can strike again against the USMNT on Tuesday. The USA figures to trot out a far less forgiving defense, however, so Bonilla and El Salvador may struggle to create many good looks on goal. Still, continuing to try to force counter-attacking opportunities could be the key to success for El Salvador.
As for the USMNT, the Americans know they should have no trouble taking down El Salvador. The USMNT is ranked No. 15 in the FIFA world rankings, while El Salvador comes in at No. 74. As the rankings suggest, this should be a lopsided affair, one which heavily favors the USA. Gregg Berhalter will be expecting nothing short of a dominant showing from the USMNT, and he’ll be keen on running up the score in order to get his team’s confidence up ahead of the World Cup. The lineup has yet to be released, but expect some of the usual suspects to be in Berhalter’s plans, and the gameplan to remain much the same as it has been of late. USA has scored five or more goals in three of its last five games, a trend they’ll hope to add to on Tuesday when they make the trip out to El Salvador.
