Mexico will take on El Salvador in the Group A match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup on 19th July at the Cotton Bowl.
Mexico will play El Salvador in the final match of the group stage with the hopes of advancing to the Gold Cup quarterfinals. They’ll need at least a point to seal their place in the last eight.
After a poor start in their first game, Mexico’s performance improved. Mexico’s second match also didn’t start well, but after a dismal first half, they recovered in the second and defeated Guatemala 3-0.
El Salvador is now in the first position and will look to make an impression by taking the Gold Cup favorites down a notch and securing a first-place finish that would benefit them in their next quarterfinal encounter.
They have turned a lot of heads with their performances in the Gold Cup’s opening two games, and they appear to be serious title favorites.
Mexico and El Salvador have met on 38 occasions, with Mexico having a clear edge winning 32 games to El Salvador’s sole victory. They last encountered in 2017, with Mexico winning the game 3-1.
