Low effectiveness of Mexico playing in Azteca Stadium: Would they change their home venue?

The Mexican National Team has let go of many points in the Azteca Stadium in recent years, and new scenarios are already being analyzed for Mexico to play at home.

In the match corresponding to the fourth date of the Octagonal of Concacaf towards the World Cup in Qatar 2022, the Mexican National Team could not against Canada at the Azteca Stadium and drew 1-1 with Canada. Jorge Sánchez opened the scoring in the 21st minute of the first half and seemed to mark the way for the locals; but Jonathan Osorio tied just before halftime and established final figures. With this result, El Tri lost the lead and let some teams get close to it in the standings.

The team that Gerardo Martino tactically directs reached 8 points, but was surpassed by the United States, by goal difference. Now he is more than obliged to defeat Honduras next Sunday, since a defeat could leave him very badly facing the closing of this FIFA window. Of course: he has the advantage of playing at home, although lately the Colossus of Santa Úrsula has not been any guarantee in the Qualifiers.

Although it is true that in the current one he has 4 units out of 6 possible (defeat to Jamaica and draw with Canada), in recent years he suffered more than expected playing at home. The Azteca stopped being a heavy stadium for the rivals, but instead became a stage that motivates them to hit the ground running. If we go to the numbers, the Mexican National Team has a 63% effectiveness since the elimination process for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The National Team did not finish convincing the public that they were present at the Azteca Stadium and, to top it off, they saw the famous homophobic cry that has brought so many problems to Aztec football in recent years. This could bring a change of scenery for the next FIFA date. Consequently, everything indicates that the Chivas de Guadalajara stadium would be the chosen one, that is, the Akron Stadium.
