El Salvador meet with Ecuador in a friendly encounter on Saturday

El Salvador and Ecuador are set to square off in a friendly fixture at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston on Saturday.

El Salvador have struggled in their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign, with just one win to their name in the third round. They still have hopes of making it into the top of the standings if they win all of their remaining fixtures.

Ecuador have done well for themselves in their CONMEBOL qualifying fixtures and are third in the standings behind Brazil and Argentina. Both teams have announced a relatively young squad for this friendly fixture and it would be a great opportunity for them to get a few minutes to their name.

El Salvador vs Ecuador Prediction

This game does not hold much significance for either side as it is just a friendly fixture. A lot of the players called up for this game have not played many games for the national side and if they can deliver good performances here, they might make it into the squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

We expect the match to end in a narrow victory for Ecuador.

Prediction: El Salvador 1-2 Ecuador
