CONCACAF Gold Cup: El Salvador

El Salvador remains to be winless in their campaign, losing their first match, and drawing their recent match. They started their campaign with a 2-1 loss against Martinique, which did not give them a good momentum. For their next match, they had a goalless draw against Costa Rica on their last match, which at least gave them one point. A win in this match gives them the chance for the next round. However, even if they win here, they still cannot ensure qualification as they need to wait for the results of the other game. Moreover, El Salvador managed to only keep one clean sheet in their last six games in their previous games. Additionally, they also failed to score any goals in two of their last seven matches across all contests. Considering that they still have a chance for the next round, expect this squad to go all-out here.

Bryan Tamacas is the only one who recorded a goal for El Salvador in the campaign, which is also his first goal for his squad. Christian Gil on the other hand is their only striker in the squad without an international goal. This adds motivation for him to try to win a goal here.

Panama on the other hand have been solid all throughout their campaign, winning all their matches. Due to their solid campaign, they were able to secure a spot in the quarterfinals of the contest. On their last match, they defeated Martinique in a 2-1 win for Panama. It was Jose Farjado, and Michael Murillo who helped Panama to secure their win on their previous match. Martinique on the other hand had a late consolation goal for them. As Panama now sits at the top of their group stage with six points, they want to end their group stage strong. Although they are already secured of a quarterfinals spot, they are still looking to add another win. Moreover, from their last six matches, Panama were able win five of those matches. In their group, Panama recorded the highest-record with four goals.

For Panama, there is only one changes for them in this match with Alberto Quintero replacing Ismael Diaz in the starting XI.
