El Salvador hosts Canada in round 11 of the third stage of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Thursday, February 3rd at Estadio Cuscatlán (San Salvador)
Before the start of this qualification, El Salvador was considered the main outsider. But the experts were mistaken, as this team performs quite well by the local standards. Now the Blue-Whites are in the sixth position out of eight, outranking Jamaica and Honduras. They managed to gain two victories in ten games, beating Panama and Honduras. Of course, El Salvador has no chance of getting into the top four, but as I said, this team performs very well for its level. If we look at the history of head-to-head confrontations against the Canadians, the Blue-Whites periodically take away points from them. But in the current qualification, the Maple Leaves confidently dealt with El Salvador at home (3-0). And it’s not about El Salvador but about the excellent current form of the Canadians.

Canada shows unexpectedly excellent results in the current qualification. We can already say without a doubt that the Maple Leaves will go to the World Cup for the first time in many years. They are now leading the group standings with a four-point advantage over the closest pursuers. In the last two rounds, the Canadians beat Honduras (0-2) and confidently dealt with the Americans (2-0). But they have a quite unpleasant quality, and it lies in the fact that they tied in almost half of the matches in the current qualification, namely, in four out of ten. Moreover, the Maple Leaves lost points in the games with Jamaica and Honduras, which cannot be called strong opponents. So, despite the current excellent position of the Canadians, you should not trust them % either.
It seems that bookmakers also do not forget that Canadians quite often share points with their opponents, so they give a very decent coefficient on the victory of the visitors. Yes, it’s too dangerous to bet on their clear victory, so it will not be superfluous to hedge out bets with a zero handicap. Moreover, the coefficient will remain quite good.
