Why you should back El Salvador
El Salvador showcased its depth by getting goals from two bench players over the weekend and peppered Guatemala's keeper with shots in a commanding performance. El Salvador racked up 21 shots and put six on target while also commanding 69 percent of the possession and doubling Guatemala's pass total on 86 percent accuracy.
Alex Roldan, Joaquin Rivas, Darwin Ceren, and others can all be deadly attackers. Eriq Zavaleta and Ronald Gomez help stabilize El Salvador's defense at center back. Trinidad and Tobago didn't get much of anything to happen in its last match, and that could carry over into Wednesday.
Why you should back Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago was underwhelming against what's arguably the Gold Cup's most talented team, but it did get a desirable result that could lead to success after the group stage. Trinidad and Tobago managed to keep a clean sheet despite Mexico putting seven of its 30 shots on target. Trinidad and Tobago also controlled 17 percent of the possession and completed 48 percent of its 151 passes.
If Trinidad and Tobago can be more consistent in possession and create a few quality chances in enemy territory, it could keep another clean sheet. Getting on the score sheet and parking the bus could lead to three points on Wednesday. Columbus Crew midfielder Kevin Molina could be vital to making that happen.
