MEX vs ELS Dream11 Prediction: Mexico and El Salvador will trade tackles at the Cotton Bowl on Sunday, with three points on the line in the final matchday of the CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage. It is a direct knockout game for top spot in Group A. El Salvador currently lead the way with maximum points picked up from two games, while Mexico are two points and one place below.
A comfortable 0-3 triumph for Mexico over Guatemala leaves them in a strong position heading into the final round of matches in Group A after being held to a draw by Trinidad and Tobago in their first game. Victory here against El Salvador would see Mexico leapfrog them in the table and enter the knockout stage as Group A winners. However, that won’t be easy against a side who currently boasts a perfect record of two wins from two games with defence that is yet to have conceded a goal in the tournament. Whilst a draw would be enough to send Mexico through, a substantial defeat could see them knocked out and therefore they aren’t expected to commit large numbers of bodies forward and risk being hit on the counter attack by this El Salvador side.
