Tip Reasoning

  • USA have won their last three home World Cup qualifiers.
  • El Salvador have lost their last three away World Cup qualifiers.
  • None of El Salvador’s eight qualifying matches in this round have featured more than three goals.
  • Only one of USA’s eight qualifying games at this stage have featured more than three goals.

Stars and Stripes to keep the flag flying high 

The United States can boost their prospects of automatic qualification for Qatar 2022 with a home win over struggling El Salvador on Friday. The Stars and Stripes remain uncomfortably close to dropping out of the top three qualifying spots after eight of 14 Third Round games, but they can change all that during this international break.

Preparing to face the bottom two teams in the group at home, either side of a trip to Canada and there’s a real chance that Gregg Berhalter’s side can take nine points across the fixtures.

Team USA are a young group comprised of more MLS-based players than those plying their trade outside the country. They are dynamic all over the pitch and have evolved into a much more effective pressing team in recent times.  They outran a talented Mexico team in a 2-0 win last November and should have far too much energy for El Salvador on Friday.

Freezing temperatures won’t favour La Selecta

La Selecta know a fifth qualifier without a win will destroy their lingering hopes of qualification, but it’s hard to see how they can get a positive result in Columbus. Hugo Perez’s side will not be at home in the likely freezing game-time temperatures of Ohio either.

The hosts should emerge victorious and a win to nil is a possibility, although El Salvador have scored in their last two away qualifiers. A better option would appear to be backing the USA to win with under 3.5 goals in the game because only one of the two teams’ 15 respective fixtures in the group has featured more than three goals.

A 2-0 home win that matches two of the USA’s last three home qualifying wins offers good value in correct score markets.
