Match date: 25/07/2021

North & Central America - Gold Cup, USA 

This is the first quarterfinals game. Meeting between Qatar and El Salvador. So, it's competition from the North & Central America region while Qatar is involved. That's because they have been invited to participate as a guest country. Qatar of course is using these games to prepare on best possible way for the upcoming 2022 World Cup which they are hosting.  

Qatar by the way will participate also on the 2023 Gold Cup. Qatar's invitation is very much in connection with the fact that Qatar Airways becoming one of big tournament sponsor. 

But Qatar proved in the group stage they have quality for this level by topping the group in competition with Panama (3:3), Grenada (4:0) and Honduras (2:0). 

Those 9 goals was the highest counting all four groups. Now Qatar has increased its streak to ten games without a loss and the last time losing in November 2020 from South Korea in a friendly (2:1).

El Salvador has started here with two wins, over Guatemala and Trinidad & Tobago, both 2:0 before losing in the last match from tournament top favourite, Mexico with 1:0. 

El Salvador is also the team which is improving. Relatively recently they have changed the had coach, Hugo Perez took in charge and everything started moving in right direction for them. Game against Mexico tells me that they could play good game today too. I saw great goalkeeper in that match. El Salvador lost back then only 1:0 and they could do even better if the mid second half free kick didn't end on a post. 

Qatar and El Salvador have mey each other in a friendly just before this tournament. That game was on neutral location in Croatia. Back then Qatar has won 1:0 but El Salvador had even 69% ball possession. Still, it should be noted that one big part of the match Qatar was with man down due to red card. 

In any case, I like El Salvador chances today to make this game interesting.

I know I'm going here with weaker team but how much weaker they are? In my opinion in a game on neutral location probably they are weaker for +0.5. Still here we have +0.75 and I see this quarter as a value on El Salvador side.  

HALF LOST Score: 3:2 Profit: -0.5
