El Salvador face Jamaica in their upcoming FIFA World Cup qualification fixture on Thursday

El Salvador will be looking to keep their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification hopes alive when they travel to Jamaica on Thursday.

The hosts have been eliminated from the race for a spot in the World Cup finals as they have just one win to their name in 11 games. They have lost three games in a row and fell to a 1-0 loss at home to Costa Rica in their previous outing.

El Salvador have the slimmest of chances to qualify for the inter-conference playoffs. They need to secure a win in their remaining three games while also hoping that Costa Rica and Panama drop points. They suffered a 2-0 loss against Canada in their previous outing.

Jamaica vs El Salvador Head-to-Head

There have been 22 meetings between the two Central American rivals across all competitions. The hosts lead 10-5 in wins, while seven games have ended in draws.

They have squared off nine times across various World Cup qualification campaigns and the two sides have been evenly matched here with three wins apiece and three games ending in draws.

Jamaica vs El Salvador Prediction

Jamaica have just one win to their name and have the second-worst defensive record in the CONCACAF qualifying campaign. Only last-placed Honduras have scored fewer goals (5) than El Salvador, so they might struggle against the hosts here.

Taking the form of both sides into consideration, we predict the game will end in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Jamaica 1-1 El Salvador
