Costa Rica is second in the group with 14 points and is coming off a monumental 2-0 win against the United States away from home. Marco Urena of the San Jose Earthquakes stole the show in that tremendous victory as he scored both goals that led Los Ticos to the three points. The Central American side will be facing an extremely tough opponent but will have the home crowd behind it in this encounter.
Mexico achieved guaranteed qualification to the next World Cup with its slim 1-0 win against Panama in its last game in these qualifiers. El Tri is top of the pack in this hexagonal phase with 17 points and will look to come out of these qualifiers with a first-place finish. The Aztec side has not lost to Costa Rica in the last three meeting between the two teams in all competitions. This includes two wins and a draw and it will be very difficult for Costa Rica to change that trend in this game.
Manager Juan Carlos Osorio is guaranteed to make some changes in his lineup for this game and players like Jose de Jesus Corona, Hirving Lozano, Jonathan and Gio Dos Santos could feature in this game. The game should have an intense atmosphere and really provide an entertaining match on the field between two teams who do have a bit of bad blood.
