USMNT vs El Salvador Prediction for March 27
USA Current Run of Form
The Americans are coming off, what might modestly be described, as a confidence-boosting match. The USMNT caught fire against Grenada, in Saint George’s just three days ago. The red, white, and blue scored 7 goals against the Spice Boys clicking in the final third better than they have for quite some time.

Christian Pulisic looked to be in astonishing mid-season form. He added his name to the score sheet while also chipping in with two assists. Ricardo Pepi opened the scoring and finished with two on the day. Leeds’ Weston McKennie had a brace, Brendan Aaronson had one as well and Alejandro Zendejas got on the board in the 72nd minute, although he could have had at least two more, had it not been for moments of brilliance from Jason Belfon.
Closing out March in Orlando!

El Salvador Current Run of Form
La Selecta has not played a competitive match since March of 2022 and lost their only friendly of 2023 to Honduras on March 22, 1-0. This team has been up and down in the CONCACAF. They have lost to teams like Costa Rica and Mexico. The visitors have also struggled against opposition such as Grenada, a team that the United States blew out 7-1 on 3/24/2023.
Recent Head to Head
In their previous matchup, El Salvador took the lead in the first half and almost walked away with a win. It wasn’t until injury time in the second half that the US was able to find an equalizer. El Salvador enjoys tight, low-scoring affairs, with six of their previous twenty-three matches falling under 2.5 goals. Amongst these were two draws against the United States. In both of those fixtures, La Selecta allowed just one goal. In their more recent encounter, the conditions were absolutely awful and that will not be the case in Orlando on Monday evening as the weather is expected to be gorgeous.
USMNT vs El Salvador Prediction and Best Odds
The win against Grenada could not have come at a better time considering the USMNT failed to record a win in their first two friendlies under interim manager Anthony Hudson. This upcoming competitive match could allow for an interesting starting lineup because the United States only needs to draw in order to move onto the semifinals of the CONCACAF Nations League A.
With that being said, it would be most surprising if El Salvador were to upset the United States. It would also come as a shock if this match were to have even half the goals from the United States’ previous match against Grenada. The US has only lost to La Selecta once in their twenty-seven meetings. Expect the total goals to fall under 2.5 and look for the USMNT to win, although a tie is certainly not outside the realm of possibility.
