El Salvador vs USA Head-to-Head

The two rivals have crossed paths 27 times across all competitions. As expected, the USA have a better record against their southern rivals, as El Salvador have been able to get the better of the Stars and Stripes just once. That win came in an exhibition fixture in 1992.

The USA have 20 wins to their name in this fixture, while the spoils have been shared six times between the two sides. They last met in the final round fixtures of the CONCACAF 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, with the USA defeating El Salvador 1-0 in January at the Field.

El Salvador vs USA Prediction

El Salvador have not been able to find the back of the net against the USA in their last four meetings but will have home advantage in this match and are likely to find the back of the net.

The USA, on the other hand, have scored 14 goals in their last five encounters against the hosts. They have also been in great touch in front of goal in 2022 and have 13 goals in their last five games.

The USA should be able to record an easy win in this match but a clean sheet here seems unlikely.

Prediction: El Salvador 1-3 USA
