El Salvador vs Mexico Betting Tips
Mexico will be determined to maintain their unbeaten form when they travel to the Estadio Cuscatlán in San Salvador to take on El Salvador in the 6th round of matches in the Concacaf WC qualifying campaign.
The away side arrived in San Salvador, having claimed a comfortable 3:0 win over Honduras this past weekend and currently sitting top of the 8 team section with 3 wins and 2 draws from their opening 5 fixtures.
While there is still a long way to go with this, the 6th round of 14 fixtures scheduled for the section, Mexico will undoubtedly be feeling confident, already boasting a 4 point advantage ahead of Canada in the 4th spot. The top 3 nations will qualify for the World Cup, with 4th place good enough for an Intercontinental play-off tie.
In contrast, the home side finds themselves struggling, picking up just 5 points from their first 5 fixtures. Still, with just 2 points separating the hosts and Canada in 4th, hope remains that El Salvador could yet find themselves in the mix for a qualification position. Still, their form will certainly have to improve, with the hosts winning just 1 of their first 5 matches, of which 3 have been played on home soil.
Past meetings between these sides suggest that an away win is likely here, with Mexico winning each of their last 8 matches against El Salvador, although 6 of those 8 were on home soil. Mexico has won on both their most recent visits to San Salvador, however, claiming a 2:1 win in 2012 before a 3:1 success in 2016. Mexico also managed to score 2 goals or more in 7 of those 8 wins but not in their most recent meeting, a narrow 1:0 win at the Gold Cup this past summer.
As such, wé´re taking the Mexicans to claim the points here, and while past meetings have typically been quite high-scoring, goals have been at a premium in El Salvador´s recent home matches, with each of their last 9 finishing under 2.5 goals scored. The home side has also failed to score in 5 of their previous 7 matches, leading to our final score prediction.
Final score 0:2
