Mexico vs Costa Rica: Head to Head Record
Costa Rica is undoubtedly a great test for the Mexican national soccer team to prove that it wants to go to the World Cup, or on the contrary, it wants to stay at home watching it from the TV.
So far, both teams have played a total of 58 matches, of which Mexico has won 34, lost 7, and tied on 17 occasions.
Since their first meeting on April 2, 1935, at the Central American and Caribbean Games, Mexico has made its hegemony against the "Ticos" a reality.
In their last 10 meetings, Costa Rica has won only once against El Tri and has also managed two draws.
In the rest of their meetings, the Aztecs have come out on top, including the last CONCACAF qualifier.
In that match, however, the Mexican team barely managed a 1-0 victory.
Mexico vs Costa Rica: Predictions and Odds
Due to the very poor performance of the Mexican national team over the last year, the odds for El Tri to beat Costa Rica are not very high.
Costa Rica has +350 odds to win the match, compared to Mexico's -130.
And the case of a draw has a high number of probabilities of occurring, even more than the chances that Mexico can win the match.
According to information from Action Network, the probability of a draw is +235, which definitely does not suit Mexico if it wants to go to the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
Mexican soccer team news
The Mexican national soccer team has just finished what is considered its worst soccer year in many respects, one in which it is not the leader in the World Cup qualifiers.
In addition, the Mexican team will have to play the game against Costa Rica behind closed doors as a FIFA sanction, due to the homophobic shouts made by its fans in Canada and the United States.
The outlook looks complicated, but it will be the ideal moment for the Mexicans to show what they are made of and get the result that will allow them to go to the World Cup.
Costa Rica Soccer Team News
The last time the Costa Ricans faced Mexico, they rocked the former "CONCACAF Giants", who barely managed to beat them 1-0 and without showing any signs of authority.
The "Ticos" know that Mexico will have all the pressure on them to win the game and that they will be playing without their home crowd, which could be a factor in Costa Rica's victory.
