Costa Rica opened their CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign with an impressive 5-0 victory over Cuba.
Tomorrow’s opponents, however, did not have quite such a memorable evening. Playing early tournament favourites Mexico, El Salvador found themselves on the receiving end of the same scoreline.
Losing by such a large margin puts them in jeopardy of not qualifying for the quarter-finals as one of the two best third-placed teams and they will be keen to rectify this in the next game.
But Los Ticos will be full of confidence and will be hoping to carry over their performance against Cuba when they take on El Salvador at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina.
As such, they have been installed as favourites for the game, with bwin.com offering odds of 23/100 on them winning the match.
The draw is priced at 9/2 while football betting enthusiasts who are confident of an upset can get odds of 17/2 on an El Salvador win.
In their last game, Costa Rica impressed by managing to come out of the blocks early, opening the scoring in the seventh minute before sealing the result beyond doubt in the second half.

El Salvador coach Ruben Israel will look for his players to bring physicality and attitude, as with their last group game a possible do or die situation against Cuba, they need a result from this meeting.
